Hilary Alexander was there and you weren't:
"A sliver of crescent moon against scudding clouds formed a dramatic backdrop to the presentation of the Giorgio Armani Privé collection in Paris last night.
The moon, however, was just one of the stars in this shimmering, celestial collection, which was inspired by the sky at night.
Armani played the "master astronomer", choosing fabrics which twinkled like stars or were as glossy as midnight. Opalescent organza, glistening gold, "aurora borealis" jacquards and pearl-white ostrich skin created a dazzling fashion firmament on the catwalk in the Palais de Chaillot.
The moon herself, was a constant refrain, reflected in silver crescent brooches which fastened the sculpted jackets; in the graceful curves of collars, half-moon lapels, and undulating peplums and skirts which traced a graceful arc around the shoulders, hips and legs of the models"This is a beautiful collection of meticulous, crisply tailored looks. What we love about Armani is his ability to blend detailing with simplicity. None of these garments look overworked or overthought in any way. Everything is just so. Our only criticism is that the suits do tend to get a little repetitive. It's the same silhouette over and over again. It's really all about the dresses and gowns for us, because they're each stunning. And while we love the whole "night sky" theme (which was pretty perfectly realized), we do think those crescents were a bit much sometimes. Still, it's a gorgeous, crisp, almost icy collection. We love.
