Balmain Fall 2012 | Paris Fashion Week

Balmain’s Bejeweled Fall – Marking his second season as creative director of Balmain, French designer Olivier Rousteing look towards Fabergé eggs gave to Elizabeth Taylor as inspiration for the label’s fall 2012 collection. Balmain’s signature military inspired jackets took an elegant turn in the form of pearl and gem adorned skin-tight dresses, outerwear and velvet pants. Strong shoulders brought an androgynous edge to the ultra-sexy silhouettes in neutral hues of black, nude and mint green. Despite the classic reference, Rousteing still kept Balmain’s modern edge for the upcoming autumn with razor sharp precision.

    I love the collection.  The rise on the pants are always so flattering
    But I must say, some of the model choices were… off.  Arizona Muse looks less than her best (maybe it’s the makeup?) while Anja and Karlie and Zuzanna look great.
