"Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise" Valentino

I don't know about you, but I start getting sick of the color-block.
When I saw it for the first time on the runways back in February, it looked fresh and joyful, but
by now, it seems old and boring more than a black total-look.
All the magazines have done editorials and editorials about the so-called color-block and
even the Happy Few around the globe have elected this sparky match of bright colors as their red carpet uniform.
With very different results:

- Good

Camilla Belle in Gucci.
Well, being that beautiful, with a runway outfit
it's almost impossible to do wrong

Harley Viera-Newton in Dior
Violet and red: have you ever thought that they could actually work together?

- Not that bad

Virginie and Claire Clarins
I usually don't like their style, but here there's something good

Rachel Roy, left
The intention was good, but the result... hum...
She looks like a fashion victim

Liya Kebede and Karen Elson, in Marc Jacobs
Almost right, but the coats! They really disturb the picture

- So Wrong

What happened to Lou Doillon, here in Chanel?
I guess she really didn't want to go out, that evening:
She looks like a grandma, with that long dress,
the long coat and the silver shoes!
(if you are neither Lady Gaga nor a Drag Queen,
there's no reason for you to wear silver shoes)
