Straight Off The Runway

Inspired by Paris Haute Couture

Karl Lagerfeld defied the "couture" in haute couture by creating a collection so inspired by architecture that most of it was crafted with concrete, yes- CONCRETE. This particular piece is not made out of concrete, but one that we really like because it exemplifies Karl Lagerfield's Chanel (baroque detailing, futuristic silhouettes) but also personifies the conflicting facets of Coco Chanel's contemporary professional career to her archaic personal life. Shalini's version of the look plays with the same concept and is made more wearable with a milkmaid braid, subtle black pumps and an antique bag.

Sha's outfit:

Giambattista Valli's collection was my personal favorite because it managed to be outré, elegant and laid back. Models walked out with scarves tied around their heads, minimal makeup and sunglasses letting each dress do the take center stage each playing with textures prints and shapes. Although I incorporated the statement, floral dress in my look the silhouette of my dress was body hugging with a sexy silhouette which wasn't what I was aiming for. So I remedied this prompted by keeping my hair slicked back and add a laid back pair of booties for a more balanced outfit. (Note: the booties would not work if my hair wasn't slicked back, don't attempt to do that to yourself unless you want to look tacky* ) *Oh Weird Al, we missed ya
