Mucha Match

Every so often, I find myself cyber-stalking Alphonse Mucha.  No worries, I'm not in danger of a restraining order- he's a brilliant Czech artist from the late 18 and early 1900's.  I just love his work!  I was going through my iPhoto library the other day and noticed I'd pulled a few dresses (Jenny Packham and Versace ones to be exact) that very well may have been inspired by his paintings.  Quite a match, don't you think?

I'm not sure about the one that Angie wears, but I would say that the orange one is certainly inspired by Mucha. The designer can't get away with it because one-color dresses combined with ornamental accessories (mostly necklaces) is so characteristic of him.
BTW, I'm also an on-line stalker for Mucha. I often look for his work with better quality.
