6.  Giambattista Valli Pre Fall 2009... very few times does a pre-season outstage Ready to Wear or Couture collections

7. Alexander McQueen SS2010 show in October ( probably not very objective as I was there..) But I think he deserves to be on this list  first and foremost for pushing the bounderies in an industry where the unconventional borderlines the absurd (and yes his accessories are not for everyone but he is a master tailor and an incredibly gifted designer)..and secondly for trying to democratise the fashion world by broadcasting his show live via the internet ( even though Lady Gaga stole his thunder...)  
 

8. Tim Ryan. Simply because he is one of the most talented current Irish designers.

9. The original English version of  The Women (I had only seen it dubbed in Spanish) with  Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard and Joan Fontaine

The Chanel ballet costume is exquisite; yes the form is very classic, but the execution and dreamy layering is fantastic.One thing that I absolutely love about The Women is the complete lack of males; the film revolves around them, but not actually seeing them makes you focus on the way these women interact with each other and react to the doings of the men.Photos 6 and 8 remind me of why I am obsessed with fullness and the tulip shape.

Too gorgeous and a rare picture of Karl actually sitting … I would love to twirl around in a tutu and toe shoes.

An amazing list! Tim Ryan is new to me – so happy to learn a new Irish designer. That shot of Karl is blowing my mind. Utterly beautiful composition.
