My condolences to the Ledger family and I will keep Heath and his loved one in my prayers and also hope that he won't become just another string of headlines for the media but that his death be treated respectfully....his short 10 years of work has been an inspiration to all and proved that he was a great actor and loving father

Hello bloggers i'm back due to a sprained ankle...i've gotten some free time to post about haute couture week thanks to a tennis warmup gone bad...anyways i'm also wathching the australian open...sharapova v. henin was amazing women's tennis and federer v. blake was also very impressive...anyways this is only the first part of my coverage of my favorite week of all of the fashion year

This is a new designer i heard of called Franck Sorbier...this dress is very reminiscent of Chanel's last season Haute Couture gowns only in a more playful matter with colored graphics against a sheer black dress
This is another Franck Sorbier dress that is also gorgeous...a black turtleneck empire top with a multicolored's very different and very childlike yet sophisticated
Secondly comes Christophe Kosse...this ethereal white dress would be perfect for a wedding if it had a longer front skirt part...the detailed top is perfect for a classic yet edgy dress
I would love to see this dress from Christophe Kosse on Helena Bonham Carter for the would go perfectly with her style and its still a lighter style for her
Finally this sheer black and nude detailed dress which is also a bit reminiscent of Balenciaga's detailed dresses from about four/five seasons ago...anyways its a beautiful dress but hard to wear because of the sheernes
Now to the more renowned designers....Karl Lagerfeld hit a perfect chord for the new couture collection its a mix of ice princess and ballerina..loved the maryjanes with all the outfits but anyways..this black and white dress with the feather trim detail and wide black belt it is right on key with the new trends and still very edgy
This pink confection from Chanel is absolutely adorable and it would look delightful on Ellen Page..if she would be daring enough to wear it Another Chanel dress that has a 20's sort of feel to it the flower and sleeve detail add that unexpected touch
This jacket and skirt combo is a new refreshing younger way to take the traditional Chanel suit into a different light...the jacket would look gorgeous paired with a minidress, longdress, skirts or jeans.
This pink dress is i think exactly what the collection was trying to's a pink ballerina like dress with a one shoulder flower detail that just screams chic....this would be perfect on Emma Watson or Clemence Posey

And the final designer for my first part coverage of couture week is Armani Prive. This white dress also has a ballerina feel to's not very couture because i think it looks like something Valentino would show in a ready to wear but the detailed skirt is gorgeous
This pink dress with a red hem is gorgeous and i think it would look perfect on Marion Cotillard because it would look gorgeous on her hair color and skin color...funny that i'm itching for the oscar's to come around
Finally this ethereal dress from Armani Prive that would also look gorgeous on Cate Blanchett since she's pregnant and the dress would make her have a more softer look and bring out that radiant pregnant glow

Well that was my first wrap up for Haute Couture Week keep looking for a new header...and also my absolute favorite couturier Christian Lacroix

Have been a tennis fan too, with federer and radal, who would be a very close successor of federer once he retired. Love the last photo from Armani Prive, the ethereal dress, with a couture charms and it doesn't show that she is pregnant on that dress.
