The Best Haute Couture Looks

The 12 Best Looks from the Haute Couture Runways

The boundary-pushing haute couture designers work for months to hand craft exquisite collections in their ateliers. Made with help from with a small army of creative collaborators (embroiderers, custom fabric makers, feather purveyors, button makers, milliners…), the gowns that walk the runway are a true labour of love.

Couture is usually reserved for private clients and celebrities who drop tens of thousands of dollars on the custom creations, but just because a gown might not be in the budget doesn’t mean we can’t ogle the looks too. From the puffball pink finale gown at Chanel to Maison Margiela’s face found amid a cloud of dark tulle, we were blown away by the stunning pieces that walked the catwalk for spring.

Check out our top 12 picks of the standout pieces this season.
