If the metallic/iridescent look of some of these outfits looks familiar, it's for good reason: the new head designer at Paco Rabanne is Manish Arora, of my first post regarding Thor-themed couture.

Speaking of Silurians, check out this super-awesome 19th-century Japanese print-style fanart of Madame Vastra and Jenny battling cybermen!
|If all cocktail dresses could be this beautiful, I'd be satisfied.|
|Not entirely sure what the inspiration was for these outside "MORE FOIL NOW", but I think I like it?|
Issey Miyake: one of the few designers who I can describe as "wearable" without making it sound like a snobbish euphemism for "boring".
|I am powerless before the lure of a pantaloon, my friends.|
Jean Paul Gaultier
It's Gaultier, so there were heaps of lingerie-inspired looks in this show. There were also a lot of tattoos on show, whether real or in the form of printed body-stockings, and I think they worked pretty damn well when juxtaposed with all the vintage-style corsetry and girly frills.
|There were a lot of great "alternative" models in this show.|
|Brilliant structure work on this outfit.|
|Don't worry, this is meant to be underwear.|
|I wear tattoo-patterned tights quite regularly, and therefore approve most heartily of all these motifs. :)|
