Balenciaga Spotting.

I finally found the stills of Lindsay Lohan in Balenciaga on the set of Ugly Betty. Well I think I'm more excited to see them more than anyone else mainly because it's nice to see a designer's work appreciated beyond the norm of the exclusive fashion circle.

She wears a Balenciaga SS08 top and a Hervé Léger by Max Azria FW 08 dress. The shoes look annoyingly familiar, but I can't identify them. Princess points for whoever does.

Fierce, no?
I'm glad Ugly Betty's costume designer Eduardo Castro used the top for the episode's outdoor scenes, because this is what it looks like on the runway in an enclosed area:

The vividity of the top's color under the sun is much more appealing than the washed-out runway look. I think it's so important to showcase statement pieces to their highest degrees, especially when you're wearing Balenciaga. Anyway, I hope this post was as impressionable for you as it was enjoyable for me to compose.

I do like how they used it outdoors in a way that isn't so constricting, you know. Where do you get your bow ties from? I only have that one and I got it at the men's section at Nordstrom's.

the stylist did and AMAZING job dressing her character. i was drooling over every outfit she wore.

The dress looks better on her than in the runway. And I think she looks gorgeous.

that whole Balenciaga collection was really compelling

the fabric reminded me of fish scales & it balanced with the goooooorgeous floral patterns

Hmm I don't watch this show but I agree that it's very strange how loose they had hers fit..maybe they had to make do with the only size they could get their hands on?
