This is just one of the most beautiful couture presentations I’ve seen in the past few years; not only are the items wearable, they’re simultaneously otherworldly and the detailing is exquisite. I think these are the types of garments that justify their own price (read: stratospheric).

That fishtails are some of my favourite dress details in the world is not entirely irrelevant, but both the shape and finish of these dresses is just breathtaking. I’d love to see Angelina Jolie pair the sheer dress in the top right with her millions of tattoos; and who wouldn’t love a grown-up Isabel Lucas in the centre outfit? Two-piece couture is to die for, and in my humble opinion, designers don’t do enough of it: why not pair a jacket with one’s eveningwear? The mind boggles.

Anyway, in short: amazing.
