The Dreamiest Dresses From Haute Couture Fashion Week

Oh Haute Couture Fashion Week! You come by twice a year and give us the most amazing, inspiring, unbelievably beautiful dresses which we love to dream about. Let’s be real, most of us will never get to wear an haute couture gown with price tags around $100,000 and up, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting to look at haute couture collections.

RELATED: Must-See Fashion Documentaries

There is something so special about dresses that are clearly not made for everyday use, but only for the most special occasions. In a world where cheap, mass-produced clothes are the norm and we all look somewhat the same, it is quite refreshing to see one-of-a-kind creations, knowing that it took weeks or sometimes months to make them.

So let’s take a look at this haute couture fashion week’s dreamiest dresses that make us want to marry a billionaire just so we can see what it’s like to wear one of these gowns.

Haute Couture Fashion Week

Zuhair Murad

This off-the-shoulder sparkly gown looks like it belongs to a fashionable modern-day Disney princess. How gorgeous is the burgundy colour?

Haute Couture Fashion Week

Giambatista Valli

The tulle and pink flowers might seem innocent, but you better don’t forget to wear appropriate underwear with this revealing dress. It’s a showstopper.

 Haute Couture Fashion Week

Christian Dior

If Audrey Hepburn got married today, she would wear this timeless Dior gown. Can’t you just see how it sways from side to side while she dances?

Haute Couture Fashion Week

Chanel

Three words that make every woman’s heart beat faster: Chanel Haute Couture. This interpretation of the little black dress is embellished with thousands of beads – a work of art.

Haute Couture Fashion Week

Elie Saab

Ballerina meets fairy – this flowy pink dress with gold appliqué is every girly-girl’s dream.

Haute Couture Fashion Week

Versace Atelier

Donatella brings the sexy to haute couture. High slit and cut outs – this dress is not for the timid, but the many layers of flowy silk give it a softness and playfulness to balance the sexiness.

Animal Applique Shift Dress

Perfect for: Night Out with the Girls
If you’re heading out for a night with the girls this festive season, this shift dress with sheer sleeves, faux leather applique and beading is divine. It’s a statement piece, yet still simple enough to brighten up with bold or coloured accessories.

DR187 - hi-res

Leather Sequin Mesh Dress

Perfect for: Office Party
Finding the perfect dress for an office Christmas party can be quite the challenge. Keep it chic and simple – you want to make the right impression in front of your boss, colleagues and their partners. Opt for something that still makes a statement but that you’re comfortable wearing. This pencil dress is stunningly appropriate with sheer three quarter sleeves, high neckline and all-over faux leather sequin design.

Dandelion Beaded Dress

Perfect for: Christmas Luncheon
If your festive social diary calls for a Christmas luncheon, then this gorgeous detailed Dandelion Dress is perfect. With daytime events, it’s often hard to find the perfect dress, because you don’t want to look too overdressed, but you still want that ‘wow’ factor. Because this dress has a sweet style short sleeve, fuller skirt and delicate beading, it’s pretty for day, and can still easily be dressed up and take you through to the night.

Placed Sequin Flower Dress

Perfect for: Christmas Day
This stunning dress is perfect for our unpredictably (and often hot) Australian Christmas day weather. The delicate floral applique and beading around the hemline ties in perfectly for summer, with the fuller skirt being a flattering alternative to pencil or bodycon dresses, an especially perfect option for Christmas day with so many temptations around! This dress can take you from day through to night by switching to a higher heel and statement accessories for a more dramatic look.

KM5

Long Sleeve Pleat Dress

Perfect for: NYE
It’s the night of nights – NYE is the time to pull out all the stops, so why not embellish a little, or a lot, in this stunning long sleeved hand-beaded dress. This is definitely a ‘wow’ dress that will turn heads, with the intricate beading design, all-over embroidery and pleated skirt. Because this dress is such a statement, do go overboard with accessories, keep it simple and make sure the dress (and you in it!) is the focus when the clock strikes midnight.

Milan Shows – Black and Tunic are Back


It looks like black is the colour to wear in winter. Anything stream-lined, practical and subtle in black is what you should be purchasing. At the recent Milan shows every design house had some black. Ferragamo, Gucci, Fendi and Prada brought back the Courreges look. Courreges was a French designer who created the early 60’s tunic dresses and pod hats that everyone thought were very futuristic back then.
