Paris fashion has no boundaries and no borders.
Blurring the lines between the masculine and feminine is as old as Shakespeare.
Guy Laroche is back in the Paris fashion conversation after Wednesday's bold, grown-up offering from designer Marcel Morongiu, who struck gold in a stunning ready-to-wear fall-winter collection that channeled gems and this fall's running theme of sophisticated, covered-up glamour.
The alchemy was off at the house of Mugler, where Lady Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, again failed to live up to his reputation as a sort of Generation Y Midas who turns everything he touches into gold.
Wallflowers and those in the market for business casual, look elsewhere. Boldness was in the air at Paris' spring-summer 2011 ready-to-wear shows on Thursday, as designers here delivered over-the-top looks for those whose entrances are always grand and for the happy few who live in the glow of paparazzi's flashbulbs.
A new modesty swept the catwalks on Wednesday's Day Two of the marathon Paris spring-summer 2011 ready-to-wear displays, with designers shunning sizzling sex appeal in favor of oversized, grandma-friendly looks that left nearly everything to the imagination.
"Luckily, this year I was very attracted toward jewelry: Is there a better place to draw inspiration?" said Arora, dressed in a flamboyant gold top.
Arora said he'd tried to vamp up the collection by making it more body-conscious than usual.
