The Paris couture season might be many things, but hurried isn't one of them. Designers spend weeks on single gowns; models sit in the same makeup chair backstage for hours; shows themselves stretch into the night or the morning. Because a couture piece is made by hand, it takes some labor time - at least, we thought it did until this weekend, when Texas socialite (and hardcore couture junkie) Becca Cason Thrash showed up at her Dallas party wearing a bejeweled swing jacket from Christian Lacroix's most recent show. Days lapsed between the Lacroix runway and the party? Twenty nine - less than a month! Fortunately, Mr. Lacroix didn't need to Supersize his freshly ordered outfit - Becca looks petite enough (and the jacket looks so boxy), she could steal the sample from the runway and wear it as her own. Wait a minute... also, Giles in Texas - what do you think?
