What is Haute

Last Golden Globes Jennifer Lawrence was wearing a beautiful red Christian Dior dress from the first Raf
Simons colection for the maison. While she was at the red carpet being interviewed, the interviewer asked what she was wearing in which she responded that it was Christian Dior Haute Couture "I dont know what that mean but I was told to say that" what seemed kind of strange since she has a Dior contract and she actualy attended to the show, in other words, that quote looked more like a way to say that I dont care about fashion, which is not bad even through it looks way too forced.
The dicussion pops every single haute couture season. "Is Haute Couture dead?", the clientele is a very small numbers and celebrities just wear the dresses on the on the red carpet because a) their stylists make them wear it or b) they have a contract with a maison (ala Jennifer Lawrence).
This season, like any other, we have got some strongest and weakest links. As we see gardens and jungles as backdrop we also discover something even through Haute Couture is not dead, the dreams who were in time created have died (WOW this was very Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables).  
I made a list with my favourite look from the colections I liked and my favourite look from the ones I didnt.


Christian Dior: My favourite colection. Raf proved he can make couture and he can make Dior. This dress was by far the standout, incredibly simple but full of details.

Valentino: Yes it was a little repetitive as it is every season but there is something about this colection that is just magnificient. This white dress on Julia Nobis is literally perfect. She looks like she is floating.

Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal:  MMM is a very peculiar brand and even without the creator who gives the name in the house they can still produce great work. What I love about couture is not a dress with 100 details but something that makes me intrigued

Versace Atlier: I think this doesnt need any following explanations

Chanel: Chanel keeps making huge sets and in every colection they forget about the clothes which are always hideous. This is a simple example of a look Karl keeps doing and hasnt understood that it is very bad.

Jean Paul Gaultier: Its usually the show that Im most exited but it felt like it was randomly put together.  The colection was influenced by Indian culture and so the random 80´s idea made zero sence, its like he has to put Madonna in every colection. This was a no.
