Mylene: Falling in and out of love

Picture heavy fashion gleeing:

The Hermès show in Paris yesterday was like the hottest thing ever. Oh Jesus, it's top-hatted, catsuited, Avengersy, Sherlock Holmesy glory. So awesome it was that I would actually do Lily Cole who usually just scares the bejesus out of me.

Also awesome was the cast of the Louis Vuitton show, because along with the regular stick figures who walk - some of whom I do rather adore - he'd also dragged in models who haven't done runway for years either because they're part of the 90's supermodel gang - which meant freaking Laetitia Casta and Elle Macpherson - or because they the curvy boob-possessing ladies the runway almost always shuns, like the gorgeous Bar Refaeli, Karolina Kurkova and Adriana Lima. Epic. (In fact, this season they cast lots of Victoria's Secret models on the runways. It was awesome.)

The unfinished 16-piece Alexander McQueen showing in Paris two days ago was really amazing and I bet there were quite a few teary eyes in the audience. (McQueen committed suicide on the 11th of February - one day before the New York shows started.)

You know what, Dior was hot as well so let's post pictures of that too. (This was supposed to be a short post.)

In unrelated to fashion news (YES, REALLY.) Tomorrow we go to Wellington to see Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer! As well as hitting the gallery and the museum while we're there!
