NYFW SS 14, Nicole Miller goes for French Peasant, sort of looks BeetleJuice.

Love these looks! Totally feels Winona Ryder, Tim Burton, Beetlejuice, wierdness. Nicole Miller described

Nicole Miller

 was talking about a revolution. Backstage before her show, the designer said she'd been inspired by Versailles, first by the estate's over-the-top gardens and intricate mazes, and then by the thought of fed-up peasant women storming the chateau and breaking all of the monarchy's awesome china. A print emerged—shards of broken dishware scattered among flowers. Embellishments followed—beading that resembled the swooping tiers of a grand chandelier. A slew of skinny, embroidery-embellished jeans and below-the-knee pencil skirts established the silhouette, while accented seams and figure-flattering prints, some echoing Versailles' geometric garden paths, contributed to the curve-con effect. A black neoprene skirt, pleated in the back and sequin-encrusted in the front, was worn with a pale silk shell also loaded with colorful sequins. That may sound like a lot of look, but the gems were artfully arranged. Resembling shards of broken glass, they created a clean angularity and a pleasing, graphic sharpness. Elsewhere, the bling on a fringed tank was heavy enough to cause the shirt to droop. Paired with a blousy pleated skirt, it lacked the oomph of earlier, curvier looks. There was a riot of colors and embellishments here, but also plenty of solid, standout pieces to start a wardrobe revolution of one's own.

Welcome to Salem

Ulyana Sergeenko claims to have been inspired by Russian women for her 2013-14 couture fall collection, but I really see more of The Crucible. These look like some hot, wrongly accused witches leaving court, tears streaming, in some warped, sexy, Salem fashion show. The make up tears were such a nice touch!
