Chanel Meets Bombay for Pre-Fall 2012

First of all, I want to apologize for my lack of posting.  The last few months of my life have been beyond hectic, but I want to make a conscious effort to get back into the swing of things this month.  I know I never got around to posting all my favorite Spring 2012 looks, but I think at this point, it's best to jump into Pre-Fall, which is exactly what I am going to do, and I am going to start with Chanel.

Can Chanel throw a fashion show or what?  I adored the Bombay theme and the heavy eye liner and eye shadow that made the model's eyes pop even with the decadent head ornaments on.  I also thought the last 10 dresses or so were absolutely stunning.  Overall, I think the show had an awesome feel to it, and I loved the idea of India meeting Paris.

My only major issues are, as always, PLEASE STOP putting the models in those hideous boots.  It kills me that Lagerfeld consistently has put his models in the weird pants/boots for the last three seasons.  Also, why was Lindsey Wixson, one of the most popular and versatile models right now, put in some of the most unflattering outfits?  Compared with Daphne Groeneveld, Wixson looked almost frumpy.  However, aside from my two complaints, the show as gorgeous, decadent and definitely a work of art in and of itself.
