Paris Couture: Armani tones down the glitz

In contrast to his debut collection in January, &to= ' target=_blank>Armani replaced the abundance of crystal-studded frocks with 1980s Saint Laurent-style sobriety and ultra feminine frocks.

"I don't believe couture should be shown in the context of a big, splashy show," confided Armani just before his models hit the catwalk. "My clients don't want to see their dresses all over the press."
