The YSL fall winter 2010 show took place right across from the retrospective honoring Yves Saint Laurent at the Petit Palais. The guests lived up to the late great designer’s vision of sophisticated eveningwear.
The almost mannish silhouette of this big shouldered fur goes well with the modern version of YSL’s le smoking – the black silk suit underneath.
Another dyed fur – this time in an interesting ombre pattern, paired with a black silk dress.
She is consistently chic, that night in gray tapered trousers and buckle boots – which I believe are Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony?
An elaborate black and white jacket peeps out from under her fur coat.
Kate Lanphear in an ivory lamb fur jacket. Her signature platinum bob with a long, shaggy front is getting imitated by young girls in the fashion set.
More ivory for spring, this time in a beautiful ruched one-shoulder dress and cape.
The long lean silhouette of a sage-colored coat.
Anna Dello Russo in a yellow fringed dress – the wind created a Venus de Milo effect.
Perfect for evening in spring 2010: sheer black stockings. Hers add the finishing touch to an abstract pattern crinkle skirt.
We saw a lot of glittery headbands like this one during fashion week this season. This one works particularly well paired with a masculine shirt and jacket, so as not to go over-the-top princess.
This gorgeous black and gold sequined dress would be the toast of any party.
Cigarette jeans – in black leather on the left and in camo on the right – add an urban sportswear edge to eveningwear.
