Italian art couture and wedding gown designer Gianni Molaro featured his new 2012 Spring/Summer Couture Collection at Rome's Fashion Week (Alta Roma) earlier this month. The show consisted of some couture wedding gowns and a few truly bizarre concoctions (some actually included a working siren light, umbrellas, bicycle wheels and plush tentacles). All were paired with the application of bright eye make-up, a slew of false lashes, up-dos and more than a few rhinestones.
Filled with sculptural art-like gowns and wild styling, it was his "“Fishlike Alien With A Literal Boob In The Center” gown that seems to be receiving the most attention from blogs and newspapers - and much of it negative. While the gown was undoubtedly unattractive, albeit imaginative, it does a disservice to the rest of the collection and the unusual make-up that adorned his runway models.

That said, I wanted to share with you the entire collection and a close-up look at the wild make-up and false eyelash application in the runway show.

On a side note, the designer's art-filled home was featured in La Reppublica Napoli last year, you can view a slideshow of that here.
