Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2012, Better Known As “International Drool Week”

Paris, France

I’ve had a tough week, guys, and I’m guessing you have, too. Our computers have malfunctioned due to excessive drool dripping all over our keyboards and I think we’re finally just beginning to recover from “beautious-overloadous,” a well-known syndrome that’s diagnosed by high-fashion scientists and suffered by fashionistas everywhere. It happens twice a year when Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week rolls around and our eyes are bombarded with so much beauty that our minds and bodies simply cannot handle it. This has happened to me, my friends, and we’re only midway through the week! But I am refusing medication and welcoming “beautious-overloadous” with open, slightly jelloid arms! Let the tidal wave of gorgey-porgeyness COMMENCE!

WARNING: I simply could not include every haute couture collection or every piece from each collection. I did not want you to pass out, or worse, die. On the other hand, you would die happy…
