Where To Wear Couture Designs In The Fictional World Where You Can Afford It

For those of you unaware, last week was Paris Couture Week. One of the biggest fashion weeks of the year, this is where the high-end designers debut their couture collections for the upcoming season. Basically, all the dresses and designs seen on the runway last week will inevitably reappear on some famous model/actress/musician on the red carpet during awards season.

I love Couture Week. The dresses are so intricate and over the top, it really just fascinates me. I mean clearly, these outfits are not made for regular people. Even if normal people could afford them, they would have no place to wear them. But that’s the difference between sorority women and non-affiliated, we aren’t normal. From theme parties to date functions to formals, we could wear and rock these dresses, and here’s where:


Versace has always been the slutty sister of the designer world. Not one for subtle gowns, Versace is all about the party dress look and their Spring/Summer 2016 couture line does not disappoint. Versace is the go-to designer for a date function when you are very clearly looking to get laid. No shame in your game.

Valentino had a very Biblical feel this year and with that follows very Grecian gowns. Say so long to the haphazardly tied bed sheet too often associated with the classic toga party; Valentino’s latest collection has you covered for all your Greek themed party needs.

Lightness suggests movement and a touching imperfection pervades all in a harmony of delicate colors. #valentinolive

Elie Saab

Elie Saab has always been a favorite of mine. The designs are so unique and eye catching. You really don’t need to do anything to the dress. The SS16 line holds true to form and offers detailed embroideries and fine lace designs that I can’t help but think would be perfect for a Gatsby themed swap.

The use of metallic colors and interesting (without being over the top) designs makes the Armani Privé collection perfect for your formal. Obviously there is a difference between dressing for your formal or a guy’s formal. I tend to play it safe (AKA appropriately slutty) for a guy’s, but I’ll experiment with fashion a little more for mine. Cue Armani.

Zuhair Murad

My first thought when looking at the Zuhair Murad collection can be summed up in one word, princess. I don’t know if it’s the muted colors, the flowers, or the poufy ball gowns but all I can think about is this is probably what a modern day Cinderella would wear. So if you’re willing to shell out thousands of dollars for your next princess party, I’d suggest stopping at Zuhair Murad first.

And so the grand finale, in the guise of an apotheosis #ZuhairMurad #spring2016 #AmourEnCage #HauteCouture #HotelPotocki
