Simply Shocking!

by callie watts
I know she got so wasted she had to be carried out of the Glamour Awards…blah blah blah her dress rules! It is lil dears with their heads slashed and blood spray by Giles Decon for Elsa Schiaparelli! The shoes rule. The hair she dyed herself in her bathroom! Keep on reading for my fav runway look from the Spring 2008 collection and a little history on Elsa and her surrealist/Dada fashions.

This is my fav look from the Spring line:

That hat made my day!

I love Elsa Schiaparelli. She rocked the fashion world in the ’20’s with her knit "iconic bow" sweater, which went straight to the pages of Vogue. 

This is one of my all time fav designs of her’s:

Oh the classic face/vase. I would rock that jacket so hard. Sort of crazy old lady and sort of WTF. Love it.

This is a piece she did with Dahli, The famous Lobster Dress 

She was also one of the first designers to market a perfume, "Shocking" which came in a bottle modeled after Mae West’s torso. The perfume came in a bright pink box, which in turn lead to people calling the hue "shocking pink", a color she would go on embrace. Fitting that Lily Allen wears something from the new collection with "shocking pink" hair. I wonder if she is in the know? Would anyone but me and Lily rock these looks?
