The most romantic couture.

An intimate love affair set place at the amazing, classical Parisian Hotel D'evreux. Ricardo Tisci based his Givenchy 2010-11 couture collection on Frida Kahlo and her three greatest passions - Religion, anatomy and sensuality.

The detail in this collection was simply outstanding and the craftship must have taken hours. Encrusted with intricate lace and embroidery, stones and layer upon layer of detailing, the collection is my favourite of yet. I'm in love with the soft whites, creams and gold colour palette and the modern twist of Tisci's collection yet capturing the couture concept of detail and exquisiteness.

Feathers, fringing, sequins and origami being the key tools, the romantic, sexy yet classic collection had me gobsmacked and i think many women are now going to go looking for a VERY wealthy man to marry just so she can wear a Givenchy couture wedding gown.

The models smokey eyes, neutral coloured nails and long straight, middle parting hair in all different shades complimented the collection perfectly. The key items that stood out for me were; the models wearing jackets matching their dresses as capes over the shoulders, the tie-die feathered dress to the floor, amazing! & the metallic studded belts giving the romantic clustered dresses an edge. The one thing I'm not too keen on were the white tights teamed with open toe white shoes. Reminded me of little girls at Christmas parties.

Ricardo Tisci has inspired me to love couture even more than i already had done before.
