That’s haute

…As in the stunning collection of haute couture dresses on display at Hotel de Ville. From March 2-July 6, do not miss this free incredible exhibition of astounding beauty that parades roughly 100 items, from renowned designers like Balenciaga, Chanel, Madame Vionnet and more. And because it’s free, there’s quite the long line to enter, so I suggest going either right at opening or just before closing.

I want it all. Except somehow, every mannequin looked like they needed a cheeseburger and some fries. I guess I could wrap the dress around my thigh, or maybe hang it in a glass case on my bare walls…but like not really since it’s haute couture anyway.

I was able to catch some sneaky pics to share with you despite the homeboys on patrol who prohibited such behavior. Oops.
