    I really like the mix of patterns and that the model is slightly more curvy. The bottom of the tower at the belly button/hips looks interesting. I do have to wonder, if the top makes this young lady look busty — what would it do on me?
    Get out of the way! The Eiffel Tower has become a battleship.

      Thank you for your fine observation ! Unlike the “Iron Lady” (the Eiffel Tower’s nickname), this gorgeous model is not as thin as the other “couture” models ! This monochromatic outfit is so rich in its construction and use of textures that it could almost be called “50 Shades of Black” ! XO

    So sexy, and the right model. Then again, why does the fashion industry need to be in the place it is with uber thin models?

      Thank you for this masculine point of view ! We all know that most men prefer curves but still the runway, apart from a few exceptions, like the ultra-talented Ylan Anoufa, showcase very skinny models ! Maybe it’s only because sample sizes are far cheaper to produce …

      Ouiiiii, merciiiiiii ! J’aime le fait que tu parles d’œuvre d’art : cette robe rend en effet un bien somptueux hommage à la Ville Lumière et à la Dame de Fer ! ❤
