hi.

welcome to noteworthy. stay a while!

where dreams have no end.

[The title of this blog post has zero relevance to the Fall Couture shows, but if someone knows what it’s from WITHOUT the use of Google, you will become my favorite.]

ANYWAYS. The fall couture shows were last week, or perhaps the week before. I’m losing track of time around here. They were, sadly, lacking any elaborate inspiration. Galliano’s work was greatly missed, because in case you weren’t aware, he loves Hitler. Everything lacked what couture should be- intricate, figurative, abstract and provocative. The looks from these shows were pretty, but to me lacked a certain kick. SOMETHING’S MISSING. Maybe it’s just me…tell me what you think.

Givenchy. “Purity, lightness and fragility” were the words creative director Ricardo Tisici used to describe this collection. In case you weren’t aware, its pretty much official that sheer skirts are IT for fall. So start buying cute panties.

I think if/when I get married I want to wear something like this that’s very low in the back. I’ve had this notion ever since this magical cinematic moment when I was 11.

Chanel. Okkkkkkaayyyy…cool 1940s look but….this isn’t couture?

However- these are bitchin light-up shoes.

Elie Saab. Sure it’s pretty. And I’m sure Taylor Swift will wear at least 3 of these to some major events…

Jean Paul Gaultier. I can get on board with this drama.

Giambattista Valli ….and this drama.

In summation: I think Valentino should come out of retirement.
