Last week in Paris, the haute couture runways made our fairytale dreams come true. Designers presented swoonworthy collections, as stunning as they were detail-oriented.
From garden party chic at Dolce & Gabbana and Giambattista Valli to the glitzy, sparkling gowns accented with plumes of feathers at Chanel, we’re already daydreaming about what spectacular event we’d wear each dress to. Of course, realistically all of these are so incredibly out of our budgets, but a can a girl dream, right? Sigh.
Below, check out the 12 gowns that simply took our breath away. With awards show season just around the corner, we can’t wait to see which of these make it to the red carpet on our favorite stars.
This Christian Dior look is the garden party getup of our dreams.
This Iris Van Herpen gown is fit for a futuristic alien princess, and we love it.
Okay, so this Valentino dress might be completely see through, but that doesn’t make it any less stunning.
Quite possibly our favorite red carpet frequenter, Elie Saab once again killed it this season. We’re sure we’ll be seeing this on one of our celebs during the awards show circuit.
Where was this Chanel gown when we were trying to get ready for New Year’s Eve?
We can’t get enough of the gorgeous floral appliques adorning this Francesco Scognamiglio gown.
