Following a Dior Haute Couture show must be daunting, but Alexis Mabille stepped up with his incredibly elegant collection this 2013 season.
Alexis always does something a little funky with hair and make up, and this year it was all about the hair. Models donned silver painted braids that were surprising but also chic and young (silver, young?) and cool.
Pants began the show - another surprise. I'm definitely ordering the silver cigarette pants that came down the runway. The severe skinnys were shown with delicate and girlie tops that were fun and sweet.

The color palette started out with pale, calming colors that moved into silvers and grays, then black.
The black tuxedo gown is almost a must-have for every woman in the world. This silhouette works on any figure and on any age. This black dress stole the show.
And then some Alexis fantasy came through. In color. A column red dress was the signature Alexis for me. Known for his bows, this dress was almost wrapped up top with a bow, but in such a sophisticated and stunning way.

The canary yellow pleated gown was the marriage of Hollywood glamour and Parisian chic.
Alexis has really proven himself as a first class couturier with this show. Blending the simple line with the exotic dream is Alexis. His clothes are as special and as endearing as he.
