Paris Fashion Week: Fall 2009 RTW - Balmain

Christophe Decarnin is truly a genius...but really, we all know that already.

Paris fashion week has begun, and I am already obsessed with some of the collections (especially) Decarnin's Balmain. Since his looks were so gorgeous, I figured he deserved his own post.

Decarnin's sexy rocker-chic looks have put him in the No. 1 spot of the most copied designer in the past two seasons, according to (How many times have you seen this look all over fashion magazines and blogs?)

His short, form-fitting dresses were adorned with Swarovski crystals, his signature peaked-shoulder jackets were paired with harem pants and skinny trousers, rather than last season's acid wash jeans and the same silhouette was also intergreated into his dresses.

Sequined skirts were toned down with drapey white t-shirts, and trains were added to the mini dresses for extra drama.

Can't wait to see how fast-fashion chains will interpret these looks!
