Generally speaking, ruffles are really not "my thing." I find them somewhat unflattering when it comes to exaggerating the figure and all too often childish. Spring 2010, however, produced two shows in which I was head-over-heels with ruffles for the first time in my life: Stella McCartney and Lanvin. McCartney and Elbaz had completely different takes on the look - while McCartney's looks were young and flirty, Elbaz designed something far more sleek and mature. To open my closet and see any of these looks would be unworldly - last night I dreamed of wearing the first look by Stella with a loose black cropped trouser and louboutins: perfection! The only thing that could have made it any better is if I had the white Lanvin dress on Magdalena to change into afterwards! Anyway, who do you think does it better? All runway images from coutorture.
