Although I reviewed the couture shows individually, I decided to set aside a few images and assemble a very special gallery: couture’s fugly shit. Ugly happened at the couture shows this time around, as it inevitably does when you present any collection comprised of more than a few aggressively detailed, edited looks (like Givenchy) or if your name is John Galliano.

With couture, sometimes you have to squint past all the opulence and spectacle to really see the clothes. For example, a beautiful, frothy Chanel mini was styled over shiny leggings, but you can imagine a million ways that mini would rule. …Other times, you just get some unfathomably unwearable bullshit at equally unfathomable prices. Let’s have a look.
