Best Fashion Gallery 2009

Is Riccardo Tisci in cahoots with Christophe Decarnin? The edgy Givenchy show at Paris Fashion Week had a lot in common with the headline grabbing Balmain show from earlier this week. It's a far cry from Julien Macdonald's romantic tenure at the label, and harks back more to what we saw from Alexander McQueen while he was at the helm. Sharp cuts, interesting textures and a 'western bondage' theme saw models in jewelled body-con dresses, skintight trousers, textured lemon and beige mini dresses and leather bondage tops.
