Channeling Chanel Haute Couture

Chanel Haute Couture in action. This meuille-feuille-like Chanel Haute Couture creation from the spring 2007 season is brought to life on young Miss Charlotte Casiraghi (daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco). Seeing couture on the runway is one thing but seeing it on a BYT changes your scope of "couture" perception. When you view these garments on the runway you do not see its beauty, the details, and the intricateness in its entirety. I feel you only really see the true wonders of couture , that of ethereal magnificence, when it is brought to life by the personality wearing it...and Miss Casiraghi injects plenty of personality into this robe à la main.
