RUNWAY REPORT.....Paris Fashion Week: Alexander McQueen, Chanel A/W 2010

Paris Fall 2010-11 Fashion Week: A Solemn End and Chanel Bears...Byzantine Cocktails: Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2010 Paris 2010-11 Fall/Winter Fashion Week came to a close with two amazing presentations. First, Alexander McQueen's final collection. His design team payed him great honors by showing this 16-piece collection. Grand Entrance: Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2010 It is said that 80% of these pieces were done by the time of his unfortunate passing. The clothes were remarkable to say the least. Couture-like quality, Costume Drama, the Dark Ages, Byzantine overtures and Sad Romanticism were all present. Lady-In-Waiting: Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2010 To me, they they were a reminder of the work he did when he took the helm at the House of Givenchy back in 1997. I LOVED that collection but most of the critics did not--and neither did McQueen himself. Alexander McQueen Fall 2010-11 Collection "video": Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld:Endangered Fashion: Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 For Fall 2010-11, Karl Lagerfeld went to the Arctic Frozen Tundra and brought back some ice--literally--he actually had a chunk of a frozen iceberg shipped in from Scandinavia--all for the House of Chanel. Lady Who Lunches Ice: Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 The ice was the backdrop and the runway for this season's EXTRAVAGANZA. Yep, it must be nice to have over $1 million to spend on a show. And you think there's an economic depression/recession in the world! Not for Chanel kids. Russian River Bear Weekend in Paris: The Chanel "Bears", Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 The show began with HOT Chanel Bears, clad in fur, and continued in the "Chic Nanook of The North" theme with fur-trimmed suitings and ice-white cocktail dresses. The end featured Lagerfeld's favorite model/muse Freja Beha Erichsen (who also opened the show) in... "La Robe de Mariee Arctique"--the wedding dress Chanel Fall 2010-11 Runway Show:
