Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2014 Runway Show - Part I of II
1) Julien David Spring Summer 2014
Bright green, neon accessories punctuate and complement outfits of darker shades.
One of the runway outfits from Julien David's Spring Summer 2014 collection looked like bacteria enlarged and splattered all over a white shirt and blouse.
2) Christophe Lemaire Spring Summer 2014
One can practice Wushu, Tai Chi or relive Bruce Lee in one of his legendary movies - Return of the dragon in this traditional Chinese outfit for men.
3) Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014
Dries Van Noten's Spring Summer 2014 collection was filled not so much with thrills but frills of the wrong kind. Spiraling in all directions like crazy sea anemones, the massive add-ons were more fungus thank funky.
4) Rochas Spring Summer 2014
Rocha's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection was no short of cheap and cheery sparkly plastic costume jewelry and accessories. However, the bouncy below-the-knee long skirts and sleeveless shirt blouse were more granny than fun.
5) Gareth Pugh Spring Summer 2014
British fashion designer hailing from Sunderland, Gareth Pugh is known for his show-stopping apparel. Gareth Pugh's latest Spring Summer 2014 collection is no different as he presents ugly alien eye make-up and hairdo with equally clinical and creepy space-inspired outfits.
This Gareth Pugh jacket looks more like an elaborate stacking of paper plates spray painted silver. The highlight of the Gareth Pugh show was definitely the thigh high white leather fetish boots that all models wore down the runway.
Alien air stewardess at your service.
6) Carven Spring Summer 2014
Colourful camouflage can be a lovely and fun print, just not on an over-sized coat.
7) Manish Arora Spring Summer 2014
Manish Arora's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection had models strut down the runway in windswept anime character white hair and mullti-colour neon outfits, shoes and accessories.
The theme at Manish Arora's runway show was definitely fun and tropical with quirky beaded pineapple waterfall earrings and an elaborately beaded tribal bikini top dress.
8) Sharon Wauchob Spring Summer 2014
Irish fashion designer Sharon Wauchob designed a dastardly dull and granny outfit in the form of a shapeless black skirt and matching shapeless top with tuffs of fur on it for her Spring Summer 2014 runway show in Paris.
It appears some sea urchins, moss and stones have collected at the hem of Sharon Wauchob's long black skirt after this model made a trip to the seaside.
Models look like they were missing arms as their tiny frames get lost in a messy ball of an unflattering Sharon Wauchob outfit.
9) Balmain Spring Summer 2014
Edie Campbell looks afraid, unsure and hunched over in this seventies inspired houndstooth print jacket and dress combo from Balmain's Spring Summer 2014 collection.
Rocking the eighties in a suit consisting of a pair of super high waist pants with gold wide stripes just makes you look like a pimp.
Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing looks all chic unlike the models he sent down the runway for his Balmain Spring Summer 2014 collection.
10) Paco Rabanne Spring Summer 2014
Paco Rabanne's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection was all sportswear sexy. Model Esther Heech walks down the runway in a double layer orange and white PVC dress.
Newcomer Russian model Irina Liss wears a white skirt over a silver metal tank dress and tops up the coolness factor with a skinny belted vest.
11) Nina Ricci Spring Summer 2014
Model Yumi Lambert wears a pretty blue floral dress with a lace hem from Nina Ricci's Spring Summer 2014 collection. Expect to see more lace hem and lingerie inspired collection moving from dark fall winter colours to lighter pastel shades in Spring Summer 2014.
Another beautiful and inspirational pure white lace and silk tulle mini dress from Nina Ricci's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection.

12) Barbara Bui Spring Summer 2014
Even Russian hot newcomer Irina Nikolaeva could not save this Barbara Bui all-denim dated redneck outfit with a bad wore hairband hairdo. I can only think of countries like Australia and Germany besides Asia where denim is revered outside America.
13) Christian Wijnants Spring Summer 2014
Designer Christian Wijnant's concept of a stripey works shirt under a sheer silk girly dress is kinda wild but works if you're a teenager.
14) Lanvin Spring Summer 2014
Lanvin's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection was similar to Burberry's Spring Summer 2013 runway collection which featured metallic trench coats and dresses.
Model Julia Nobis struts down the runway in a green T-bar jewel heel Lanvin sandals, a red metallic jacket and metallic purple tube dress.
Model Sun Fei Fei wears a lingerie inspired pale pink metallic dress with raw-edged hem detail on the straps, adding more vulnerability to the fragility to Alber Elbaz's delicate, romantic yet strong statement pieces for Lanvin's Spring Summer 2014 runway collection.
Lanvin brings back the jumpsuit in and all-over glittery sequin edition. We love the absolutely chunky chain choker and heart pendant adorn with red Swarovski crystals.
Supermodel Lindsey Wixon looks all rock & roll glamorous in her new hairdo. However, the brown bag she's carrying in her hand looks more like a trash bag.
15) Olympia Le Tan Spring Summer 2014
Olympia Le Tan's Spring Summer 2014 collection was all about the ocean's vast wonders. Besides the seashell clutches, Olympia Le Tan's outfits were pure crass in meaningless soft-porn pin-up girl styles that were deplorable.
16) Yang Li Spring Summer 2014
17) Chalayan Spring Summer 2014
Hussein Chalayan's classic moire print dresses, like a fine piece of Art.
Fancy a rubber hat-brella anyone?
18) Sonia Rykiel Spring Summer 2014
This unique piece from Sonia Rykiel's Spring Summer 2014 collection would be a lovely dyed fox fur stole for Autumn and Winter too.
19) Vanessa Bruno Spring Summer 2014
Butterfly and floral prints are a Spring Summer staple as seen in Vanessa Bruno's 2014 runway collection.
20) Maison Martin Margiela Spring Summer 2014
Maison Martin Margiela does create some beautiful pieces from time to time but her Spring Summer 2014 runway collection was filled with peculiar sequin bustier style tops.
Maison Martin Margiela did not win us over with her melon shape boob design outfits.
21) A.F. Vandevorst Spring Summer 2014
The only piece we liked the most from Belgian label A.F. Vandevorst's Spring Summer 2014 collection was this Miley Cyrus inspired sheer top with metal nipple stickers. Although we must admit the navy blue leather cross strap ankle boots are quite yummy too.

22) Yohji Yamamoto Spring Summer 2014
Korean supermodel Soo Joo Park looks like a clown with a badly plaited hairdo, powdered brows and terrible clashing colour shoes.
This model from Yohji Yamamoto's Spring Summer 2014 collection looks like a Christmas elf in green and red which should never be seen together when they are both bright colours - except on Christmas trees.
23) Junya Watanabe Spring Summer 2014
Junya Watanabe's Spring Summer 2014 runway show topic definitely had nature and wildlife conservation ruled out as models strut the runway in torn and tattered wispy garb and a head full of dead exotic bird feathers.
Gray seaweed dress and bright orange dreadlocks make a frightfully fatal combination.
24) Haider Ackermann Spring Summer 2014
Models sizzled down the Haider Ackermann Spring Summer 2014 runway in bad mallet hairdos and shimmering metallic outfits for that punk rock band cool factor.
Who needs boring blue denim shorts when you can have black python shorts with matching python ankle boots?
Dare to bare? Then cover up smartly with a skinny sequin scarf whenever you wear blazers on their own or sheer tops.
Contrast lapels are cool, so is a pair of copper jeans.
Designer Haider Ackermann looking dapper and wearing shimmer metallic pants similar to those from his own collection.
Stay tuned for Part II review of Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2014 runway shows.
