Dominating Looks on The Paris Haute Couture Fall 2012-2013 Runway

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week was in full effect over the last four days, with some of the hottest designers showcasing their Fall Winter 2012-13 collections. And as my eyes ran through a variety of looks, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of trends that dominated the runway.

Sheer embroidered gowns; some with thigh high splits, sheer embroidered and see-through lace jumpsuits, and lace pants were all heavy hitters. Although some were a little more conservative than others, the most interesting thing is the majority of the designs were either made with a cutout leotard effect, or made to reveal your underwear. Check out a few of the dare-to-wear looks below.
