Trust Peter Dundas to pull out all the stops in terms of glamour and fabulosity at his latest show in Hollywood. This was his first haute couture collection as a solo designer, and while it wasn’t shown in Paris, the clothes had all the elements and attributes to bear the prestigious title. Ironically, the show was held a day after the Golden Globes, where a lot of A-List celebrities took on the more classic styles of haute couture. But for his part, couture is all about looking glamorous with as much sparkle and body-hugging silhouettes as one can take. The inspiration, Dundas shared, was old Hollywood glamour, evidently in the vein of Joan Crawford with the strong shoulders and the unapologetic amount of shine. A lot of the looks here, which were longer and leaner as compared to his usual array of mini-dresses and leg-baring separates, would have looked right at home at the red carpet the night before. Rest assured, however, it wouldn’t be long before a few dresses, particularly the plunging gold lame gown with 40s-style sleeves, would make its way onto the Grammy’s a couple of weeks from now.
