For his second couture collection at Givenchy, Welshman Julien Macdonald had obviously taken to heart last season's critique of his "risk-free" approach. This time he left solid ground far behind, envisaging an "angel, descending to earth," complete with pale colors, abstract forms and "proportions straight out of a dream."

How do angels materialize on the catwalk? Apparently, wearing an asymmetric ruched white chiffon smock dress layered over white cotton trousers. Or a black cotton trouser suit with a décolleté back, embroidered with jet beading and black paillettes. Or, like Karolina Kurkova, caught up in an asymmetric tunic with a draped satin sleeve and looped passementeries over hand-painted "watermark" trousers. Phew. While experimentation is a crucial element of couture, some of Macdonald's treatments felt so heavy-handed, it was little surprise his poor creatures were falling to earth. Some fell with quite a thud. Some even wore head bandages as mementos of their rough descent.
