Over the past season, Karl Lagerfeld has accustomed us to a magnificent shows and impressive backdrops, which always are the subject of discussion-who could forget the legendary carousels, at Fall 2008, or the super market at the pret-a-porter last winter ?At the Chanel Couture, for the season Autumn / Winter 2014, Tuesday afternoon, we saw the return, of the artistic director of the house, Karl Lagerfeld, in the simplicity, and the two characteristics that define, over time, his ideas: the glamour and historical references.
In a subtractive Grand Palais, with setting a room with white walls, a fireplace and a virtual mirror, models walked the catwalk wearing-classic-style capes and airy dresses, iconic deux piece of tweed, silk skirts and shorts-all, combined with flat sandals (which took the place of sneakers talked last season). The collection contained clear references to the heroines of Dickens, with impressive detail of lace, crystals, embroidery, with large collars, corsets, short jacket, lines A and ribbons to dominate in a collection that reminded us, for another time, why Karl Lagerfeld remains for decades “the Kaiser”.

It’s not a dress, nor a trouser. J.Lo attracts all eyes in her controversial outfit.

In the presentation of the Versace haute couture collection in Paris, Jennifer Lopez, who wanted to honor her good friend-and director of the Italian house-, Donatella, wore one of her creations-the «tress». The piece, which takes its name from the words «trouser» (pants) and «dress» (dress) is a special, hybrid creation, which-to be honest-not exactly understand. The strapless creation, first gave us the impression of evening dresses but when the Latina star turned to the side, we saw that one part, is shaped pant-but only one trouser leg.  Looking at it more closely I found, of course, that the «tress» has, on the one side, a leg hotpants, and on the other, the long leg we see. Still have not decided how I feel about  Donatella’s red carpet creation , but probably I am a big fan.
