Dear pop priests & priestesses,
My friends at Station Service, a Paris showroom that reps cutting-edge designers, sent me these gorgeous shots of Rihanna wearing a dress by one of their French couturiers, Alexandre Vauthier, on the UK show "X Factor."
Vauthier honed his skills working for Parisian fashion masters Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler. During Paris Couture Week last January, Vauthier presented his first couture collection at La Maison des Metallos. Electronica artist Roisin Murphy walked in the show and wears his creations during public appearances.
While I was in Paris this past September, I couldn't resist modeling one of Vauthier's couture pieces--a sumptuous fox-fur cape with gold beading by the prestigious house of Lesage--during a visit to the Station Service showroom.
