Just a few looks from Prada…
Fei Fei Sun. I love how rich and luxe this look is, from the fur to the deep chocolately brown of the coat – almost reddish – and the desert beige boot. Mmm.
Anabela Belikova. This is an explosion of eurghh. And shiny at that.
Slightly better for some reason – nope, I take that back. Still bizarre and ugly:
So other than the bizarre plaids and stripes (which I didn’t even bother including in here because I consider it practically unwearable) and the aforementioned unforgivable sparkles, it was nice. As always, I encourage you to take at look at the rest of the collection yourself.

Fendi, one of my perennial favorites. I thought of Europe, of Jane Austen, and of Van Gogh – don’t ask me why. The palette was subdued but rich, definitely saturated. What I didn’t like was how a lot of the looks weren’t very streamlined: bulky coats paired with a wider straight leg, worn with a lower heel; or a long skirt and a fairly boxy top. Worn separately, they’d be fine, nice and simple, but I didn’t always like the overall effect when worn together.
Just a few looks here –
Kasia Struss. I like the interesting jacket – the textures, cut and colors are all just unique when combined like this.
Arizona Muse. Not a fan of the skirt, but I love the fur.
Britt Maren. A simpler look, and I like it.
Abbey Lee Kershaw.
The shoes – I like the idea – the shape and color – but I’d have made the heel just a hair thinner and a pinch taller.
This one… again, I’d have made the heel a bit taller, and maybe not orange.. but then, it’s unique and kind of appealing in its own funky way.
Hate this one. Not sorry to say it. Chunky and unattractive.
This one I’d keep as is, height and all.
Righto. I need sleep. Check out the rest of the collection, it’s pretty good (coming from me).

Dior’s couture show was – no surprise – luxe and, I thought, a little edgy in some ways, different. The look above, for example: the general silhouette is very classic and refined, then you look at the jacket and you get a deep V and a floppy collar. So maybe not edgy per se, but just… with a little twist. Definitely vamp-y.
Same concept here. Traditional (I guess) skirt – which I love, the pleats have great motion – paired with an orange top with blocky shoulders. The shoulders take away from the elegance of the silhouette and are juxtaposed to your first impression.
This is a ridiculous fur – exaggerated, over the top… but I bet it’d be ridiculously warm as well.
Lindsey Wixson. Kind of a 40s silhouette on this one, a slightly more typical. I think the fabric has a lot to do with the feel of the look, if that makes sense. The grey has a lightness, a shimmer, and a volume to it that seems a bit unexpected. To me, anyway. Everyone interprets fashion in their own way.
Daphne Groeneveld. This dress feels like spring and Easter to me. I like the cut of the top.
Yulia Kharlaponova. Gorgeous, elegance, glamour at its best. Classic… just beautiful. Those black sweeping streaks – what are they? They remind me of either eyelashes or horse tails, or pony tails. And if you watch the video (how great is Style.com’s new feature? Love it!), you can see the shimmery dots that are scattered all over it. Just subtle enough to catch in the light, no disco themes here.
Georgina Stojilkovic with the closing look – again, just pure elegance and glamour. I love the muted purple and almost a tinge of grey in this dress.
And of course – the shoes!
Be sure to check out the rest of the show – gorgeous and engaging all the way through. At Style.com. Elie Saab next!

On my cousin’s photography blog (check it out, she’s so awesome), I found this picture of someone’s boot from a music festival – Chanel look-alike, anyone?
Chanel FW2010 – Chanel’s shaggy boot. Reminds me of a yak. I actually could see myself wearing these in the winter up here… maybe…?
Not sure where you’d buy this boot – I spent a couple minutes on Nordica’s site and couldn’t find it – but I’m sure if you looked around hard enough you could track some down. If one were so inclined.
