Today marks one of Cat's favorite annual rituals in fashion: The fall/winter Paris haute couture shows. Yes, Cat loves ready-to-wear for shopability, but she prefers the fancy and fantasy of haute couture -- particularly for fall.

And yes, apparently people are buying. WWD is reporting today that sales are up, up, up. "With the January collection, we doubled sales," Sidney Toledano, president of Christian Dior, told the paper. "Our atelier is fully booked. We have a lot of orders to deliver."
