Kate Moss graces the cover of Vogue and apparently she wants to prove that a mother can still have fun.
"I am still acting like a seventeen-year-old. I definitely haven't become middle-aged. I've got a house and a daughter and all that, but I still like to have fun. Even in my business we still have fun."

Christian Lacroix has got to be one of my all time favorite designers. I guess it's because his haute couture designs are always reminiscent of one of my all time favorite eras, the Victorian Age. With all the lace and close attention to details, I find myself in awe.
Two pieces really caught my eye. The pink dress I think because the vast majority of the line was black and thus the color itself stood out and this black number.

The Valentine couture show was held in the Place Vendôme showroom of the house, but what most people were concerned about was how Alessandra Facchinetti would do. This is her first show since Valentino retired leaving her in charge of the collection.
Valentino sat in the front row of the show and I've got to say while it defintily proves to be headed by a different designer, I liked it. And she made sure to end the show with Valentino's signature, a red dress.

Sean Avery whom I earlier wrote to be attending all the shows at Paris fashion week is nowhere to be seen . Apparently he was needed in the world of hockey and thus was unable to attend as previously planned. Avery's comment?
"I'm sad. I spent three days packing."
I have just found myself mesmorized by a BBC piece I found on youtube entitled "The Secret World of Haute Couture". Expect to see apperances and interviews with Daphne Guiness, Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, and other "club members". The show takes you inside Paris haute couture fashion week and into a few closets of the rather wealthy. But be warned once you begin watching it's hard to stop and you will find yourself glued to the computer for an hour.
