Paris Fashion Week
is on, so try, if you can, to stop spazzing over what Rihanna
and Kristen Stewart
and Jennifer Lawrence
are -- or aren't -- wearing to the shows, and pay some attention to the collections. Because the photos coming out of the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collections remind us of more than the fact RiRi clearly left her pants in Barbados. Voluminous haute-couture gowns with prim and pretty details had us thinking about a completely different set of suspects: the cast of Murdoch Mysteries
A bit of a stretch? OK, maybe.
But check out the photos below to see what we mean.

Is that an exposed ankle?! The sheer details on these gowns by Giorgio Armani Prive and Versace might have landed a lady in the Old Don Jail for public indecency, but the texture, beadwork and feathery details of these dresses remind us of something Dr. Ogden might wear to a Policeman's Ball.

Let's not forget about Dr. Grace. Model No. 2, in Armani Prive, might be wearing more pearls than Dr. Grace could ever afford on a coroner's salary, but we think she'd approve.

Prim, high collars? Bold shoulders? Cinched waists? Full skirts? Somebody call the Toronto Constabulary, Stephane Rolland stole Dr. Grace's look!
