Paris Fashion Week: Zombies are haute at Gareth Pugh

Gareth pughThis season, Gareth Pugh, protege of Rick Owens and lover of spikey headgear, showed that he is ready to move on from being fashion's enfant terrible to being a bankable talent. Rihanna made a front row appearance at the Palais du Tokyo where Pugh staged his darkly romantic, tombstone gray, Goth-punk-zombie collection. (Zombies are the new vampires.)

Strip away the pale face paint, red under-eye makeup and gray hair extensions of the undead, and I could actually see the pop star wearing some of these pieces (as well as a lot of other people, for that matter) -- a figure hugging minidress with charcoal gray contouring panels and a curled, zippered collar; another minidress covered over with corset lacing coming undone, a sharply tailored tailcoat with zippers crisscrossing the front, slatted leggings and shredded knits. Bravo.
