Thierry Mugler A/W 2012 Paris Fashion Week

Oh. Hell.Yeah.

How crazy cool is this??

I so enjoy a good winter white…

Thierry Mugler Autumn/Winter 2012

was all about extreme sculpture, laser cuts,

exaggerated shoulders and fringed skirts. 

The more extreme pieces were offset 

by softer, more demure

belted coats and body loving dresses.

Can’t you see Rooney in this??

The collection paid homage to the life, style and smoking habits of

late singer Amy Winehouse.

From Amy’s signature beehive hairdo and heavily winged eyeliner

to her eclectic and eccentric mix of floaty silhouettes clinched with rock n roll belts,

  strapped in bustiers to torpedo bras,

there was a hard edged femininity that was offset by Gaultier style androgyny

and buckets full of attitude.

In the finale the models swept past in long, draping black veils,

a bittersweet tribute to a show and a life filled with fun.

Hourglass silhouettes, accented shoulders, 

and shimmering almost liquid metallic golds 

and greens that were both fresh and new, 

while eternally sexy and elegant

at Armani Prive Haute Couture Spring 2012.

I didn’t quite get the messy hair and the gadget

fixed to the girls’ heads

but the makeup was beautiful.
