I am absolutely in awe of Balmain's Spring 09 pret-a-porter collection. Christophe Decarnin incorporates denim and sequins in the military trend for an effortlessly chic look. I also love the denim washes he used. To contrast the more casual first looks, the second half of the Balmain show included gorgeous embellished bandage style dresses. Decarnin truly understands a woman's body and plays with proportions and silhouettes so well. Here are some of my favorite looks..Trust me I had such a hard time narrowing down the looks..I love them all, and most importantly I would wear them all. Isn't that what Pret-a-Porter is all about?
