The best part about online magazines is that it closes the gap between countries thousands of miles apart and allows us to view beautiful editorials we may have never seen before. Elle Vietnam presents the majesty of Spring 2014 Haute Couture in their latest issue, lensed by photographer Benjamin Kanarek and styled by Adele Cany. He captures Canadian model Dauphine McKee in a myriad of exquisite couture looks that tantalize our high fashion palates.
|Dauphine McKee is ravishing in avocado green on the cover of Elle Vietnam April 2014, dressed in a visually expressive ruffled confection by Alexandre Vauthier.|
|Marco Zanini debuted at Schiaparelli in grand fashion, showing off a gargantuan puff sleeved white jacket that capes a billowy chiffon gown with feathered headdress.|
|We have Karl Lagerfeld to thank for updating the average sneaker to couture status. Dauphine looks stunning in a turquoise and teal iridescent peacock feathered dress with sequined tulle skirt.|
|What seems to be floral curtaining takes a couture turn in this well tailored (and actually wearable) pantsuit by Maison Martin Margiela. In typical MMM avant-grade style, the look is paired with a mesh mask & bronze boots.|
|Touching upon more feminine ground, Dauphine is styled in a beautiful ivory slashed bodice and satin pleated skirt by Alexis Mabille.|
|With his futuristic design aesthetic, couturier Stéphane Rolland gave us a glazed apricot orange gown with a patent leather exaggerated bodice and sheer paneled skirt.|
|Dauphine strides in a wave of sky blue organza and a mesh beaded top by Armani Privé, topped with a headscarf that supplements the ethnic feel to this outfit.|
|A spiked gold choker and burgundy leather bustier lend a goth dominatrix look to this edgy and sensual Alexandre Vauthier ensemble.|
|Dauphine cites the retro disco era in a silver silk jersey hooded jumpsuit with plunging neck by Versace that is fully encrusted with studs and sequins.|
|Dauphine takes flight in a theatrical butterfly shaped Jean Paul Gaultier silhouette, set in flutters of lace trimmed cerise pink organza. Wearable? Well, maybe for a show girl. Creative? Most definitely.|
|This artful white On Aura Tout Vu dress is constructed from an inventive gem-studded high-collar and off-the-shoulder neckline with a split high-low hem draped skirt.|
|It takes a skilled photographer to make an Elie Saab gown look even more stunning in editorial, as Benjamin does with this gorgeous oceanic blue silk chiffon dress with slitted skirt and strapless neckline.|
|Modesty and grace meld together in Valentino's guipure lace embroidered long-sleeved gown.|
|The true essence of Spring is depicted by beaming canary yellow and coralista pink in a radiant two-piece creation with embellished top and fishtail skirt by Giambattista Valli.|
Which of these Spring 2014 Couture looks inspire your imagination?
