Fashion Ads and Photo ops from Last Week

Couture Fashion took centre stage last week (images from Valentino, Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier below), creating a host of photo ops in Paris, but I’m starting with the first look at Alexander McQueens SS10 Ad campaign. His LFW show was one of the most important this season and has seen fashion forward ladies like Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness getting those shoes. This snake ad is definitely the most dramatic I’ve seen in a long time, let alone this season. Amazing.

Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri for Valentino created a feminine, vibrant wearable collection. Mixing neon and nude tones, both the long and short dresses were the epitome of subtle, summertime glamour. The trouser-suits were equally summery but with a less glamorous, more edgy feel. Hair was as simple as make-up was striking, the neon theme was striped across eyes in thick bands of colour. A beautiful collection.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture collection was an extraordinarily eclectic mix, he infused Mexican with armoured shoulders and tropical floral prints and appliques. creating a collection that stood out as exciting but completely wearable. I loved the leaf fronds that protruded from headdresses, gowns and bags and the armoured knees and shoulders created a fabulous balance to the heavily floral pieces.

The internet has been a-buzzin’ with talk of the “Minnie Mouse hair as seen at the Chanel couture show (see below) last week. I’m sorry Karl, but I’ve seen that somewhere before… I always knew Gary Oldman was a style icon and here he is as Bram Stoker’s Dracula sporting a pretty similar look, non?
