Demure majesty and bold femininity were the reigning themes of the new Spring 2012 couture collections. Pale pastels sashayed down the runway at Elie Saab in romantic shades of peach, powder blue and mint.
Feminine silhouettes and cuts highlighting the sexiest parts of a woman’s body ruled the Versace show. Shiny metallics and bold neon hues blinded the audience.
Maxime Simoens displayed a sharper variation of the sweetheart neckline at his show, giving the traditional romantic look an edgier feel. Body-slimming metallic accents were added to garments to create sexiness and curves.
At Alexis Mabille, shockingly bright colour-blocked dresses were a common theme this season. Larger than life embellishments adorned the models’ gowns and heads; over-sized drapings of satin material wrapped into roses became decorative hats.
These collections are daring, daunting and darling all at the same time. Spring 2012 spells sweet and sexy all in one chicely-wrapped package!

So if you happen to have $10,000 lying around, it would be a good idea to pre-order one or two of these dresses! Actually, you could probs only get one.
