    Beautiful! Though she's a tad bit skinny for my liking. And the belt that adds that little bit of detail to the presentation. It almost looks like she's floating! That grey and greyish champagne colour combination.

    I love the movement captured in this photo. Beyond that, I'm just staring at her rail-thin figure. For me, it's distracting, and not in the most positive of ways.

    Bit concerned about the slant of the heel on the left shoe – it looks as is it could break off any minute. However, they are lovely shoes and perfect for the dress but wrong size for sure!

  60. aaryn b.

    The dress and the photo are sublime. But the ill-fitting shoes ruin it. I'm going to say there was some error during the fitting process, that the correct shoes didn't arrive and the designer just had to roll with it in the wings…

    Yes. That makes me feel better.

    poor girl, having to stand all the comments about her figure and the too small shoes that probably were uncomfortable as hell. and still she's the one wearing that fabulous (in its simplicity) dress. you can't take that from her :)

    People! Models often just wear whichever shoe is chosen for the show/outfit. The shoes are not specifically sized for that model. Often they wear shoes that are 3 sizes too small or 3 sizes too big. If she's a tall thin model, there's a good chance she wears a size 9 and designers aren't exactly stocking size 9 shoes for runway shoes, they usually go much smaller.

    That dress has lattice smocking on it, not too hard to do with a machine called a smocking pleater. The fabric is run through threaded rollers that set the pleats on the cross grain, then the lattice is smocked by hand with embroidery thread. After the pleats and smocking stitches are steamed in place the cross grain threads are removed. Lattice smocking patterns are usually seen on baby clothes. It's great to see it on a woman's dress looking modern instead of something you'd see 100 years ago.

    All of your fashion show pictures are wonderful and the women are truly beautiful. What I seriously cannot understand is, why fashion designers dress their models up in fantastic dresses, but give them way too small sandals. Toes sticking out look very terrible and ruin the entire look.

    Fascinating to see how distorted the shoes and feet become when these amazons are stomping down the runway

    I searched Google and could not find this dress anywhere. Is this part of private/unreleased collection?

    I very much like the fluttering dress, the material itself is beautiful and especially those made ​​details, but I think the most striking detail is phenomenal belt that fits perfectly into this cut.

    Love this semi-fitted waist line!
    It’s a modern interpretation of Balenciaga’s idea.
    However, Balenciaga did fit it at the front and used to leave the back loss.
    Always liked that effect.
