Last week the American press was giving actress Paula Patton a pounding for her choice to wear a Stephane couture "leave nothing to the imagination" skin tight white column dress with a massive ruffle down one side to the Golden Globes Awards.

This week Kim  Kardashian was sitting front row in Paris, watching the designer's spring/summer 2014 couture offers. Oohing and ahing over those same sculptural flourishes.

It's undeniable that the designer's bombastic creations are not for the faint at heart. So with that in mind, this latest collection was a standard continuation of Rolland's fascination with voluminous organic inspired embellishments that spring forth from form fitting silhouettes.

Inspired by the sun and light, the designer stuck with sunshine shades of yellow and orange along with white and black. Starting off with a jumpsuit that saw whorls of fabric growing out from mid thigh into meet up (cape like) with oversized superhero shoulders. From there it was all about spectacle dressing. Where organza swirled around the body or spiky patent leather adornments prickled across a bodice.  

Some particularly assertive gowns came out with a central rectangle cut out to make the front of dresses just barely long enough to cover the model's lady parts. Those same rectangles were also cut out of the sides or backs of maxi dresses like an open window through which to admire taunt young derrières. Would Kardashian dare to wear those looks? If anyone could get away with it- or even take advantage of it- she could.
