The very height of fashion, haute couture has just finished showing its spring collections in Paris. The biggest news of the week came from Christian Dior, which showed its collection without a creative director (you'll recall Raf Simons departed the brand in December, and they're taking their time naming his replacement).

Elite houses like Chanel, Valentino, Armani Privé, and Atelier Versace pressed on, sending out their most elaborate styles of the season, including plenty of incredible gowns. While the actual looks that walked the runway are more likely to wind up on the red carpet or at a princess's wedding, it certainly doesn't hurt to ogle. Check out 27 inspiring images from the shows, which include pleated masterpieces by Stephanie Rolland and blindingly beautiful wedding rings from De Beers and Boucheron.
