As we are glued to our desks in grey and f-ing freezing New York, our experience of the Spring '13 Haute Couture season has been strictly via Instagram, and so far, here’s what we're thinking/feeling about the Dior show this morning (Day One):
1) HELLO, GORGEOUS!
2) It's snowing in Paris, which we gather is both rare and very special! (And, fodder for Instagram.)
3) As far as the models' glam, Jean Seberg pixie cuts go, Raf Simons seems to have been watching Rosemary’s Baby.
4) Pat McGrath, meanwhile, has apparently been watching Ever After (iridescent face ‘masks’!)? Her "Techno Butterfly" bedazzled eye from the spring runway show has migrated south, with most of the gems now concentrated on the lip—which brings us to our final thought:
5) Lip art is the new nail art? Discuss. (Also, remember Violent Lips? A cheaper option for those interested in trying out the look at home...)
