Mid-Week Update: Paris Ready-To-Wear Week

Is it just me, or does it feel like the Fall Winter 2010 shows have been going on forever.

Anyway, the Paris Ready-To-Wear shows began on Monday. Balmain presented a brocaded and broad-shouldered Princely (as in the singer and the court of Versaille) collection. At Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquière went for a retro-futuristic look. And at Giles Deacon, the curvy model trend continued as Victoria’s Secret stalwarts Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Izabel Goulart and Ana Beatriz Barros paraded down the runway alongside couture models like Coco Rocha and Jessica Stam.
