If you want to take an escape into a fashion dreamworld, might I suggest taking a look at Couture fashion week in the ’90s? It was an iconic time when supermodels like Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Carla Bruni all walked the runways, and legendary designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix were showcasing their designs each season in Paris.

What each of the couture houses conjured up is pretty extraordinary to look at. There are gowns with endless layers of tulle and lace, Pierre Balmain’s nod to Marie Antoinette’s outfits for the country at Petit Trianon, Laetitia Casta outfitted in an look crafted entirely out of silk flowers at YSL, and Karl Lagerfeld in his stride at Chanel. If you want to take a look at the most amazing couture dresses from the ’90s, we’ve rounded up some of the very best for you to lay your eyes on.
