Oh how we love Couture. Fabulous and loud, beautiful and dramatic – it’s an oxymoron of the most visual kind. And one of the most important fixtures on the fashion calendar.
It’s where you’ll find the best street style looks and the most wonderfully intricate designs. And quite simply the only way to sum it up, along with the trends, gossip and style news, is with a gallery of the most awe-inspiring pictures form the week.
From off-duty models to front row guests and party attendees, catwalk looks, backstage beauty and behind-the-scenes prep, you can now catch up on all the action from the couture crowd with an array of beautifully-captured pictures
On the catwalks it was suitably dramatic.Whether it was a colossal pink tulle dress at Giambattista Valli, a barley-there cut-away suit at Versace or a dreamy embellished floor-sweeping gown at Valentino, there was one common theme: the more opulent the better.
