Sorry, we just couldn’t help it. But doesn’t it seem like out of all the street style weeks we document, discuss and sometimes argue about, the street style that comes pending Couture Week offers the most robust variety of fashion–or at least our own warped perceptions of what fashion-at-a-fashion-show should look like–anyway?
Sometimes I think that the clothes circumventing the shows will be more formal than what we’d typically see. This speculation concerns me because the people in the photos, which obviously amount for the bodies wearing the clothes, are the show-goers–not to be confused with the runway models (give or take a leopard print coif), who, mind you, haven’t been dressing all that fittingly lately either.
Jeans? At couture? Shouldn’t she be in a full length, ball gown-sized skirt? No, dimwit! How will she get around like that? I can’t believe it has only taken one small slew of visuals from one small fashion week for me to forget how dramatically critics react to the aforementioned, unseasoned skirt. The thing is, I kind of want to see her in a full length, ball-gown sized skirt. So what do I make of that? (Other than, you know, selfish voyeurism.)
Now, we don’t mean to start any contentions or anything but in addition to and independent of the question above, we ask this: Tommy or Phil?
The photos watermarked Vogue at lower right hand corner are shot by Phil Oh, the unwatermarked versions are from Tommy Ton’s loot for Style.com. We’re pretty gripped by both (though holding some of their more similar shots up against each other as documented in the slideshow has proven pretty comical) but do you prefer some to the others? Why or why not? Did this 500 part question just iniquitously remind you of deceased college application and SAT-exam prompts? Someone, somewhere is writing about YOLO as we think.
I guess in the end we should just be happy all the photos exist, right? As Cher Horowitz once appropriately declared, “It’s like, the more the merrier!”
