The original French punk did it again! I have to say this collection was by far one of the best Gaultier collections I have seen in a long time. The fact that it’s Haute Couture makes it even more impressive because although some of his designs can be costume-y, these are actually wearable, yet unique. My fave is definitely the last photo with the can-can skirt. BRILLIANT! If I wore that I’d make an excuse to lift my skirt as much as possible. The fifth photo of the black and white striped organza dress is just perfect. Why can’t movie stars were this stuff on the red carpet instead of the ho-hum, safe, FUG  dress?? All these incredible dresses and they end up with the one uninspiring dress that every JCPenney can knockoff. Really. Anyway, Gaultier has absolutely regained his special place in my heart!

It looks like designer James Piatt went ahead and made a handbag that scares the hell out of me. Okay, so this is a handbag of a ‘abandoned’ baby with interchangeable ankle tags that each represent a celebrity baby. At fist look, I thought the mouth was a baby crying , but I guess it’s a binky? And the square hunchback on the baby is unsettling. Moving on, here is a run down of the celebrity ankle tags:

-A pack of cigarettes for Britney Spear’s kids

-A water well for Baby Jessica

-An open window for Michael Jackson’s son, Prince Michael II

-An airplane for Charles Lindbergh, Jr.

Here are my suggestions for Piatt if he wants to expand the tag collection:

– An octopus for the OctoMom

-A globe for Angelina Jolie’s kids

-A spaceship for Suri Cruise

-A Kabbalah string for Madonna’s kids

A pair of mink eyelashes for Jennifer Lopez’s  kids

The more I look at this handbag, the more I want to hide and pull the sheets over my face. Click here to see more of James Piatt’s fupe purses including a ‘cat on a stick’.

Think of the most glamorous celebrity gift suite in the most glamorous city in the world. You can’t help to think of the DPA gift suite titled 2009 ESPACE GLAMOUR CHIC® in Paris, France.   Nathalie Dubois-Sissoko once again dazzles us in her home country and in the City of Lights perfectly timed for the French equivalent of the OSCAR AWARDS® called the CESAR AWARDS®. The event took place at the historic, arc deco HOTEL NAPOLEON where classic French film legend, Jean Gabin shot many of his movies, and where stars like Josephine Baker, Audrey Hepburn, Errol Flynn, and Orson Welles once roamed the halls.

 

            This year’s suite boasted a wide variety of luxurious skincare for every skin type from cosmetic giant LANCOME, to DERMALOGICA – The Age Smart kit, to Demi Moore endorsed HELENA RUBENSTEIN skincare and makeup (not available in the US).  For the men, BIOTHERM HOMME provided skincare products. BENEDETTA, which means ‘blessed’ in Italian, blessed us with their with holistic skin care. BIO-SALINES, a French skincare brand that incorporates its products with the famed specialty salt, ESPRIT DU SEL, sprinkled the DPA gifting suite.  If the elixir of quartz crystal skincare was more your cup of tea, SPHATIKA shined the DPA gift suite. DANIELE de WINTER showcased her skincare from Monaco inspired by her father’s research and treatment of cancer patients. LE ROI SALOMON (for men) and LA SULTANE DE SABA (for women) took DPA guests on the voyage of the world through its unique skincare line. Artisan bath and soap product maker, LUSH, made DPA guests smell a little sweeter.

The Polaroid PoGo, a mobile printer in the palm of your hand (no shaking need) that connects to almost any digital camera or phone satisfied the tech savvy.  PULL-IN Underwear supplied the coverage of another kind for men and women. In the jewelry department, OH DIS LE MOI jewelry graced us with their modern, yet elegant jewelry line. More gifts were provided by  ASICS / Onitsuka Tiger (Tokidoki) sneakers that glow in the dark and tote. For the Rockers,  ETERNAL CLOTHING  gave us tattooed shirts and clothing. 

 

MARCHON eyewear is a DPA staple with eyewear from designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi. NICOLE VAN DYKE brought back the 1950s and 1960s French style through her handbags and frocks. For the dedicated yoga followers, no wardrobe is complete without SPIRITUAL GANGSTER. PACK AND FLY provided useful and smart travel accessories for the jet set. Remember the days of supple kid leather gloves?  MAISON FABRE, founded in 1924, keeps that elegance alive.
