Couture Week: Wearable?

The recent couture shows were more wearable than ever. I especially loved Ricardo Tisci's collection for Givenchy and Lacroix was unbeliveably exquisite. Chanel on the other hand was in one word awkward. You have to try to make 5'11" girls look short and stout, and Karl Lagerfeld seemed to try very hard. This is unfortunate since his last season was one of the most successful couture seasons in Chanel's history. Valentino's show on the other hand was an emotional one, it marked his official retirement for the fashion world. Can't wait for ready-to-wear!

Interesting couture post -- how can you make those thin girls look fat? That's a problem.
