The Mme Gres is a fantastic mix of colours nad shapes, whereas the model wearing the Pierre Balmain looks like she doesn't know what to do with the skirt:-)

Oh wow, I *love* the Mme. Gres! I would hold a party just to wear that!

Erin said...

Definitely Mme. Grés, though I love the color of the Pierre Cardin.

I agree with the first three commenters; the Mme. Grés is my favorite. It's glorious!

It looks like the Mme. Gres is a clear winner today. Funny, because that is actually my least favorite. I'm not in love with the high neckline and sleeve length. But I do love the Chanel!
