Susan Tabak home The Haute Couture collection Zuhair Murad presented this season was called "Casino Fever," and it definitely showcased a certain Las Vegas showgirl-in-Paris vibe on the runway (inspired, apparently, by Sharon Stone). And while I've always admired Zuhair's work, this défilé...

As you all know last month it was Haute Couture week here in Paris. This season I got a job working for a website taking street style photos. I only got to work 2 days out of 4, so that was nice. I rode my bike to Dior and Chanel. Both venues were god awful for street photos. They're tiny and...

A man's love of women and sports can somehow find a place in Givenchy's Spring 2012 Couture Collection. Riccardo Tisci created an eerie, true-to-brand display of twisted beauty with crocodile skin, missed with the darkness and purity of black and white. Facial jewelry is a trend throughout the...

Haute Couture Spring 2012: Elie Saab, Valentino, Alexis Mabille and Giambattista Valli Elie Saab With a rainbow of pastel sorbet shades of pink, peach, yellow, mint green, and baby blue, there was a light-as-air feel to Elie Saab's collection, which I am sure we will be seeing on the red...

" Christian Dior, Haute Couture Spring 2012 Preview, Photo by Kevin Tachman But do we want anything to be mild come couture season? There was very little shockvalue in this collection, designed under the supervision of Bill Gaytten. However, what it lacked in electricity was definitely...
