Wrong! the answer is (d)-- a Pink umbrella!
As the head designer for the French label "Balmain", Christophe Decarnin is most certainly making a house hold name for himself. After all, he was the first designer to bring the most sought after high-heel ankle boots which were last season’s most wanted item.
In all its entirety, the collection was very reminiscent of the good old 80’s including the shoulder pads (yuck). Aside from the shoulder pads, I think the collection was very inspiring.
I noticed the metal studded stilettos in Zara on Bloor St. for $169.00.
If I were to be the wife of a Prime Minister or a Queen, Elie Saab would most definitely be my preferred designer. In this collection, as in many, each garment was carefully hand crafted to the smallest detail. However, his choice of colour was more demure than usual starting with a palette of pale beige to nude and dusty, barely there tints of violet, pastel blue, and oyster.
Elie Saab became an overnight success after he became the first Lebanese designer to dress an Oscar winner, Halle Berry, in 2002. Berry wore a burgundy gown by Saab to the 2002 Academy Awards when she won for Best Actress. Berry later wore another dress by Saab, this time a gold dress, to the 2003 Oscars.
