The spring 2013 Haute Couture shows were simply stunning, filled with fashion magic and one-of-a-kind glamour. As I watched my favorite designers transform their chicest looks into a magical storyboard filled with jeweled lips, gold floral headpieces, crystal fur, and idyllic lace, I was drawn to the fierce struts and perfect poses of the models who completely nailed the looks. Versace, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, and Armani Privé were among my favorites from the runways and each had an extremely unique theme for the delivery of their spring looks. While I was obsessed with the actual runway looks, I love seeing what goes on behind-the-scenes as well, because that’s where the energy builds as the pre-runway jitters come out. I love seeing models in their element, and these amazing pictures from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week truly capture the fun, natural, and even quirky, unexpected emotions that go on backstage!
