I love couture- I mean who doesn't? I've been hungrily browsing through all of the Paris highlights this week and well, I had to say something about Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld in all his evil genius has dreamt up a future that does not include black lyra, patent leather, or studs. Not that I don't enjoy that look when done in the right way, however; it's been done to death. I like that, in all of this doom and gloom, Chanel is offering up a collection that is totally modern and all about romance, soft colors, and sparkle. Obviously he's seen the future and it isn't 2012!
