The last of the fashion weeks are finished, and Paris was a pleasant surprise to me. For the Spring 2011 collections, I liked Milan significantly better, but the designers at Paris created some killer lines. Hello, gorgeous.

Favorite pieces from the collections:

Chanel: 4 (my absolute favorite of the entire show)
Christian Dior: 2
Givenchy: 6 (just can't get enough of that yellow!)
Hermes: 1
Louis Vuitton: 2
Stella McCartney: 6
Valentino: 5
Vivienne Westwood: 5

Favorite Overall Collections: Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Yves Saint Laurent

A few comments on the collections: As much as I absolutely adore the pieces I showed from the Dior collection, those were the only pieces I liked. The rest of the collection did not sit well with me and if it weren't for these pieces, I wouldn't care for it at all. As for Vivienne Westwood, I love the clothes but I really don't like that the makeup distracts from the clothing. Yves Saint Laurent stuck to beautifully classic looks, but nothing compared to Chanel's fire-and-brimstone runway show. Another standout piece for me is No. 6 of Alexander McQueen. I wish that had come out before award show season so someone could have worn that beauty.

Thanks to the designers and the models for their amazing work during this fashion month!
