PARIS, Jul 6, 2008 / FW/ — Georges Chakra delivered exactly what I imagined a Haute Couture collection to be. His elegant gowns and cocktail dresses were constructed impeccably, and the care he took with details was impressive.

I loved the draping details that created petals down the backs of dresses and the water-color inspired printed gowns. The beading and sequins he used on almost all of his dresses were flashy but sophisticated. Helen Miren, who wore a Chakra gown on the red carpet at the Oscars last year, was at the show eying her next awards show look.
