Take A Bow

Bows are back!
Take A Bow Bows are back!

Not since Charlize Theron's bow-bestowed John Galliano gown for the 2006 Oscars have bows stolen the spotlight (Click here to see a photo).

Bows are back and have been adding a note of girlyness to clothes, bags, shoes and accessories. Designers have taken a cue from Galliano's infamous creation in terms of size (we're talking BIG), but have chosen to go a more understated route, integrating the bows into the actual garment. Take for example Christian Lacroix's voluminous satin tube dress or Alber Elbaz' washed taffeta bow top over at Lanvin.

Forget tiny, demure little ribbons; when it comes to bows this Fall, bigger is better and the more the merrier.
