Fashion Glamour has finally taken a breather from the bedlam that was Paris Haute Couture Week. With Maison Martin Margiela having pulled the final curtain of the season, we now take the time to look at all the pieces that left mouths agape, stole all the attention and left the front row audience fanning to catch their breath. While the runways were not spared from disastrous ensembles that beg designers’ taste to be questioned, we’d rather beam the spotlight on the most stunning garments we saw on the catwalk.
The list of sartorial successes include the impeccable ball gowns at Christian Dior, Chanel’s reincarnation of tweed, and Valentino’s moody fall romance. True to the beginnings of couture, the pieces that emerged from various ends of the runway bannered utmost extravagance, sending a shiver down our sartorial spines. Click through the slideshow above to see our picks as couture season’s most exquisite looks.
