We’re not sure if it’s the promise that these looks will soon grace all the awards season red carpets or simply an appreciation of the extraordinary level of detail that goes into creating them, but the couture collections are always dusted with a little extra magic. Case in point: the stunning creations seen on the Spring 2017 runways at Dior, Chanel, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli and more. Here, the looks that made Rachel’s hit list.
Lily-Rose Depp closed the Chanel couture show in a stunning pale pink confection.
Riccardo Tisci's couture collection was inspired by Victoriana in the American West. Infused with his trademark gothic vibes, the results are breathtaking.
This was Dior's first-ever couture collection designed by a woman—Maria Grazia Chiuri, who previously co-helmed Valentino—and it felt decidedly softer than seasons past.
While a significant portion of the show featured riffs on the classic Chanel suit, there was no shortage of plume-adorned and shimmering gowns destined to grace the backs of this year's Oscar nominees.
A princess-worthy counterpoint to the average woman's day-to-day existence, to be sure—but a little escapism never hurt anyone.
