To say Giorgio Armani's Spring 2011 couture collection for Armani Prive was shiny would be the understatement of the year. The king of Milan presented a futuristic yet oddly vintage collection that was heavy on high shine, jewel tones and 80s and 70s influence (including whispers of Pierre...

Givenchy really is on a winning streak lately. The Spring 2011 Couture collection was only 10 looks long, but each one was a smash hit! With embroidery and detail work that took as long as 4,000 hours, Givenchy is setting a new standard of couture. I guess this is when creative meets OCD,...

"Purity, lightness and fragility" was the focus of Givenchy Fall 2011 couture collection, and consisting of mostly white high neck, long sleeve gowns, this collection is definitely a chic bride's delight. Above and below, peplum gown embellished with pearls along the neckline and sleeves....

Tisci used a silhouette and aesthetic similar to the one employed in his Fall 2010 couture collection yet the results were so very different. While I appreciate that Tisci used an all-Asian cast I'm looking forward to the day when it becomes more than just a gimmick. Photos courtesy of...

To say that Riccardo Tisci's latest haute couture collection for Givenchy takes my breath away is an incredible understatement. The designs are ethereal and otherworldly, and the perfect follow-up to the house's equally awe-inspiring Spring 2011 couture collection. While I may never have the...
