Haute means "high" in French. It is pronounced "hote", NOT "hot". It is used most commonly with the word "Couture" (pronounced catore) which means "fashion" in French. Thus, Haute Couture means High Fashion.

It does not, however, mean hawt, hot, sexy, whatever. People who use haute in place of those words are idiots who seriously need to read the REAL dictionary instead of urbandictionary.com.
That Vivienne Westwood trench is so haute couture.

Haute

...actually DOES have a meaning on its own, and doesn't have to be paired with "couture". It means "fashionably elegant" OR "high class" OR simply "fancy"...
haute

Fashionably elegant: “In Washington, haute gastronomy is at least as important as the national economy”...

We often refer to things as HOT, haute is so much more bourgois.

Fashion police, Hamptons, and all that jazz

Whats Haute, Whats Not

Past hawt, shmexy, seckzy, secksy and secksi combined, haute is the only way to describe tons of celebrities who are so hot they almost knock you over when you see them.

Also another expression used in the same way as hot; could also be used to describe erotic or semi-erotic situations (much like the word hot tends to do).
Some really haute celebrities are: Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Levine, Ewan McGregor and about a million others.

Oh my god, guys, wouldn't it be so haute if those two started holding hands? THEY'RE HOLDING HANDS IN MY MIND! LOOK GUYS LOOK!
