Givenchy Spring 2009 Collection at the Paris Runway ...

Edited by Tania

If booties are in this season, wait until you see the thigh-high cowboy boots which created a buzz at the Givenchy Spring 2009 Collection in Paris.

The boots were worn with an almost-indecent, yet still uber-chic mid-thigh white frock and an exquisite black jacket. The theme of the show was "Western Bondage", according to designer Riccardo Tisci himself.

The virtually unknown Italian took over the Givenchy house way back in 2005 – and his winter collection last year showed critics that he's more than capable of running things, fashion-wise.

Check out which other pieces are worth drooling over from the collection:

And Riccardo Tisci himself:

As Sarah Mower of Style.com put it – crazed lines will be forming for those thigh-high cowboy boots overnight, recession or no.

The only sign that we've seen of the "**Western Bondage**" theme were a few items like an LBD with puffed sleeves and a crisscross front. All in all, the Givenchy show was a success – and I myself will be lining up once those boots are made available to fashion aficionados some time soon. ****
