Valentino Fall 2011

Valentino’s Fall 2011 presentation showcased a divinely charming romantic collection.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli gave us ultra feminine pieces with ruffles, tiers, embellishments and lace which glided down the runway so beautifully.

We saw halter dresses with a lace bodice and pleated skirt, leather coats, wool coats, sheer blouses, tapered pants, cashmere cardigans embellished with studs and day dresses on a colour palette of nude, burgundy, navy, green, baby blue and saffron.

Luxe knits and fox furs will ensure we are kept warm this coming Fall.

We saw lots of floral prints and floral appliqués which accented many looks. I also loved feather accents and the tromp-l’oeil feathers on chiffon dresses.

If you’re looking for romantic grown-up elegance this is definitely the collection for you.

Key accessories included python print boots, black headbands, clutches, totes and ankle strap pumps.

    I didn’t like this collection. I thought it was meh. I only thing I liked was the long silk blue gown with the collar.

    Why do models always look so pissed off?

      From seeing models in my hotel in Milan I know that they do eat
