Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013: Balmain in haiku + separated at birth?

Dutch model Bette Franke rocking retro glamour at Balmain yesterday. Runway photos by ImaxTree.com.

BALMAIN, take two

Can you say glamour?/

Power suits with attitude/

Scarface sex appeal.

On a distinctly non-literary note, I noticed yesterday that my cat bears a striking resemblance to Australian model Catherine McNeil.
