The Fall/Winter 2011 Paris Haute Couture shows just wrapped in the city of lights, and – as we all know – where there is Haute Couture? There is bling. And wacky hats.
Here are some of my favorite looks from the event – most from Dior (sans their brilliant wretch, John Galliano) and Armani Prive (house of Oscar, royal weddings and all things Gaga).
Leprechan’s Rejoice! We’ve got a rainbow of oversized statement necklaces and cocktail rings to gawk at this go round!
I also spotted a return of the gold leaf silhouette at the stunning Giambattista Valli show.
(P.S. Guess who else is into gold leaf looks these days????)
And no Haute Couture Show would be complete without the chapeau showdown, right?
So there you have it, bling hounds. Colorful, oversized gems, yellow gold, leaf silhouettes and ‘hold-on-to your-hair-follicles’ headwear are the take-away trends from Paris.
Want the look? I’m thinkin’ Jewelry.com’s “Bijoux de Chloe” designer collection is the perfect expression of that sentiment – at prices that are frugalista fabulous! Here’s a few of their high-fashion looks for less, jewelry hounds. You like?
