Elsa Schiaparelli: Surrealist Fashion Icon

I'm beginning to feel a lack of surrealist couturiers, so I thought I'd do a brief Elsa Schiaparelli posting. She was an artists and a dressmaker and an innovator. See above her famous shoe hat of 1937 on which she collaborated with Salvador Dali. Below is her lobster dress from the same year.

Most innovative of all, her skeleton dress.

I can't be the only person who longs for a time machine assisted Gaga/Schiaparelli collaboration, can I?
