Haute Couture

A new year means new things to look forward to. Mark your calendars because the Paris Haute Couture shows are set to run from Sunday, January 24 through Thursday, January 28. Chanel is currently set for Tuesday, January 26.

With the way things have been going the past few months, I'll be very surprised if Freja does not walk in the show. After all, she is one of the current campaign girls. And the last Chanel runway show she missed was all the way back during the SS09 ready-to-wear season when she skipped out on most of the Milan and all of the Paris shows. Since then she's been present (and prominently featured) at all of Karl's shows so I doubt this upcoming SS10 Haute Couture show will be any different.

The question is, will Freja walk in any other shows? I'm hoping for, but not counting on, an unexpected surprise. She walked the Christian Dior Resort show back in 2007, but hasn't walked any of the RTW shows in a while and has never walked for Dior HC. She walked the Elie Saab HC show last year, but that's been the entirety of her work with the brand. She closed Valentino RTW last season, but that doesn't mean she'll walk the HC show. So...I don't know. I'd love to see her walk for Givenchy, but I highly, highly doubt that will happen.

At least we only have a few short weeks to wait. And then before we know it, the FW1011 shows will be upon us in February! And the madness begins all over again...
