now that is what i call red carpet dressing. i love it when designers wear their own collections, it really does speak volumes. french designer alexis mabille attended the grazia masquerade ball in paris on tuesday, wearing a black double breasted dinner jacket from his fall winter 2008 couture collection.

it is very rare for designers to include a few menswear looks within their womenswear collections, even more so at couture shows. the young couturier showed some very nicely tailored pieces, and the peacock feathered brooch also made it's first appearance at the show.

i really do think the feathered brooches made all the difference to mr mabille's outfit. doesn't he look like a fun person to be with, like one you would love to talk to at a party?


despite the peacock feather butterfly brooch was from 2008, it is still available online here. i really like it, especially the way it's styled on the runway. l00o00ve!
