Fashion Inspired by Classic Painters Like Sir Peter Paul Rubens

The following fashions look heavily inspired by the Baroque period, specifically by artworks of Flemish painter Sir Peter Paul Rubens.

Having been influenced by such art greats as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Elder, Titian and Pieter Bruegel, much of Rubens' works were inspired by religion -- just as the fashions in the gallery do.

Featured pieces include looks from Burberry Prorsum ), Linda Dresner, D&G, What Comes Around Goes Around and Lydia Courteille.

Implications - With designers as haute couture as these, there is no denying how fierce these fashions really are. Leave it to these high-end designers to be inspired by simpler ways of life, such as the lives of painters. These painter fashions are certainly comfortable looking and made a big paint splash -- sorry for the pun -- on the runway. Stats for Baroque Beauties Trending: Older & Warm
