And we shall make our wish lists from right here (click the designer names to go to the full collection):
this week has left you with a serious thirst for ballgowns. Here, have some Elie Saab. Predictable, but in times like these, it's important to know where to turn.
A sprinkling of other collections to investigate as you pick out what you'd like to see on the royal runway:
- I sincerely hope the Ladies of Lux did not get any ideas regarding the waist ruffles at that Armani Privé show.
- Zuhair Murad sent models in tiaras down the runway, practically screaming for some more royal attention after Princess Sofia wore one of his dresses at her pre-wedding dinner.
- Christian Dior looks are often fully bespoke when we see them on royal ladies (Princess Charlene, Queen Mathilde, etc.), but you never know what might turn up.
- There's part of me that's dying for noted ruffle fan Crown Princess Mette-Marit to try the end looks from Giambattista Valli, just for kicks. But I think not even the royal palace has hallways large enough to accommodate that particular flight of fancy.
