yowsa! fashion is art, baby. I love these looks as much as I love the more wearable ones from the same collections. so creative.

I always love seeing innovative heel designs, whether or not I would ever be brave enough to don them is another thing, but I still love to admire them!

Hope you're having a fabulous week, CC!

Penny said...

Some of these are so artistic. I absolutely love the color content in the first one. The Christian Dior one reminds me of Metropolis and the Numero is so Dali....they're all so amazing.

Couture Cookie said...

I think I remember that plastic orange top with the Chanel statement necklace... still looks pretty hot!

Belle de Ville said...

Yikes...sometimes too much innovation can be a really bad thing.

Marcia B. said...

wawww i love the first look, it's so elegant!

Leah said...

LOL... I can't imagine myself wearing wheel mags on my head even if it's the height of fashion. And those rubber gloves too.

I admire the patience and ingenuity of the lego hat but again, I won't be caught dead wearing it.

stilettolover91 said...

Elizabeth Marie said...

Whoa!! Double take is right! What a fun post! Some of the makeup is crazy!!! XO

The Haute-Shopper said...

The McQueen stuff is just terrific... they used the same headgear for the window display (which was made from recycled props, so it's all good). That clutch is quite practical as well... or so I'm trying to tell the husband ;-) Love that Chanel heel!

Oh, and I'm drooling over your last houndstooth post as well. It's all over Europe at the moment :)

HiFashion said...

I loved every single picture there. I love stuff thats just so different. I'm particularly loving those shoes.

Love, love, love!!! Where to begin!! I adore the colours of the top Chanel and the shoes!! Wild stuff - and the bobby pin hair!!! Awesome post sweetie!!! Really out there - this is why I adore couturiers - they are true artists, aren't they? XX

Mimi said...

Wow. I love these. They are so unique. Definitely different from what I usually see. Thanks for posting these.
