Hair is bigger than ever, brides are wearing green now (according to Chanel) and bedazzling gold suits are du jour on the runway - here’s Hunger’s pick of the heart-stoppingly beautiful couture looks we loved this season…
Kaia Gerber in Valentino
Big hair, big dress, big look. The pink feathery gown looks like a modern art sculpture making Kaia look like even more of a Disney princess than she usually does. Joe Mckenna, you’re a creative genius.
Neutral tones at Christian Dior
Maria Grazia Churi’s nude a-line gown is full of classic tulle and lace embellishment, but the matching choker adds a lil touch of sass.
And that golden suit
In 2018, couture isn’t all about the dresses. This olive gold suit is androgynous, powerful and as elegant any couture gown.
Jean Paul Gaultier‘s ruffles redux
The angelic ruffled lilac contrasts with the punk long leather gloves and black hair, but it works.
JPG avant-garde bride
The stunningly ethereal bride by Gaultier was a romantic vision with a dramatically high veil and silvery grey tones.
A very regal bride at Elie Saab
Of course the deluxe Ellie Saab delivered because she’s all about bridal couture. A glittery, regal bride transcended the catwalk shining with incredible headwear.
The see-through fabric makes the model’s body a part of the scaled skirt garment, just like a mermaid’s tail. It’s modern, sparkly and as Silva Venturini and Karl said, it “dances between sublime tradition and new realities.”
Iris Van Herpen’s other worldly creations
The pleated ethereal shapes look like they’re AI projections. But no, it’s all authentic tailoring. Obsessed.
Modern romance at Chanel
Zips, slits and green; Karl’s wedding dress is for the modern woman. A lowkey a-line silhouette but there’s nothing lowkey about the leaf embroidered shoes, matching veil and dress’ silk interior.
Viva La Vanille at Giorgio Armani
The cream silk and chiffon ruffles are elegantly extra.
