Huh. Felipe Oliveira Baptista's collection strikes Cat as incredibly ready-to-wear. Where's the pizazz and sizzle and over-the-topness? Or at least the exquisite detailing? Plus, on the whole it seems slightly derivative of recent pop culture. Seriously, Mexican wrestler masks have been all over for ages, as have super friends, and Jack Black's Nacho Libre opened last year.

That's not to say there aren't some cute things in the collection -- love the white dress and stripey suit -- but it just left Cat flat as an haute couture show.

Christophe Josse also showed on Monday at the Paris haute couture shows. Here are a two examples from his effort:
