I am so frightfully tired this morning and I have no idea why. I need to get it together because tonight is the most important night of my life thus far, the premiere of Deathly Hallows. Today, let’s take a look at quarter Veela Fleur Delacour. We’re first presented with the Beauxbatons student in The Goblet of Fire but she comes back strong towards the end of the series after marrying Ron’s brother, Bill. Now, since she’s basically part nymph and one of Beauxbatons’ brightest students you know she’d have some killer style. Enjoy it, y’all.

continuing on with bram stoker’s dracula, may i present lucy westerna. lucy was mina’s best friend. she was the beautiful, angelic 19 year old daughter of an aristocratic family. she is loved by three suitors, all who propose to her on the same day but her health quickly and mysteriously deteriorates. one of her suitors calls his friend, dr. van helsing to remedy her illness. they soon learn that dracula has been draining lucy’s blood and unfortunately, it’s too late. soon after she is buried, children in town begin disappearing and several report seeing a “bloofer” (read: beautiful) woman walking the streets. that bloofer is lucy’s damned vampire self. dracula had doomed her to vampirism and it is up to van helsing and the men who loved her to set her soul free. rather gruesomely, they destroy the vampire and free lucy’s soul. that’s some heavy shit.

after the last couture season, i started seeing parallels between pokemon and some of the pieces on the runway-check the post. the resemblances were pretty striking, particularly the givenchy jigglypuff ensemble. anyway, now that fall 2010 couture has ended i present to you the pokemon couture.
couture, i choose you!
1: givenchy and mewtwo: pretty much all of givenchy reminded me of mewtwo and mew. the bone detailing and silhouettes scream legendary and scientifically bred pokemon.
2: valentino and gastly: i hate the ghost pokemon but the tulle layer over this dress reminded me of gastly right away. the model’s eyes look similar to his too. wierd.
3: elie saab and charizard: the bat wing sleeves and print made this an easy choice. charizarrrrddd
4: chanel and bulbasaur: karl lagerfeld skinned an ivysaur and made a dress. boom.
5: christian dior and vileplume: the floral collection galliano sent out had plenty of pokemon references (particularly grass pokemon, duh) but this violet and magenta number shouted vileplume like none other.
till next couture season.
sidenote: i stick with the original 151 pokemon, old school.
