My Heart Goes Boom Boom Boom. Paris Fashion Week. Part IV. The Intelligent Ruffle. Balenciaga

"A ruffle must be intelligent." Cristobal Balenciaga

Combining intelligence and sexiness, Nicholas Ghesquiere gave us a ruffle with brains and a bod for sin for Spring 2013.

The ruffles were based on a detail from an original Cristobal Balenciaga dress.

1960s Balenciaga gown
Ghesquiere's ruffles were lined in pink

and lined in white

There were ruffles worn with a cropped sort of ecclesiastical looking top for that sexy, flamenco nun look.  You know, I have been waiting forever for someone to do a sexy flamenco nun look : )

There were also these super gorgeous, metal bands sprouting branches worn at the back of the head.  Very beautiful.
