    Lily Donaldson in Balmain aka. Balmain, oh, Balmain! (1)

    I love Balmain. I have a childish infatuation and passionate feeling towards Balmain's collections (especially the body conscious dresses). I'm not even sure if it's a hyperbole. I honestly love Balmain.

    Balmain, to me, represents an epitome of strength, sophistication, and looking amazingly hot. The dresses, from short body conscious dresses that make you legs so so long to sparkly glittery sequin gowns that look anything but tacky. Meanwhile, there's very well fitted military army jackets with padded shoulders. And not to mention, pretty decorated and studded booties and heels.

    Therefore, you can see the ecstatic look on my face when I saw Lily Donaldson in Balmain's FW 2010 black sequin gown for Vogue UK's October 2010 issue in a editorial titled "The Long and Short of It." Photographed by Paul Wetherel, Lily looks stunning without being too revealing and (see!) her legs look even longer through the slit of the Balmain gown. I don't even recall where I got the photo, but it's nice because there's no text of the title of the editorial. Lily Donaldson in Balmain, simply amazing!

    Here's another instance of Lily Donaldson in Balmain. I have this editorial in my copy of Vogue China in the Paris theme last November. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue UK August 2009 in a editorial named "Paris." Boots paired with bunny ear headband and Balmain corseted gown.
