Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018 Couture

The Valentino Spring 2018 Couture show was on Wednesday (January 24) during Paris Fashion Week, with a front row featuring plenty of Valentino beauties.

Kate Hudson: The actress has been serving up some sweet looks lately, and this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 frock stay right in line with that girly vibe by virtue of its short length styled with dotted tights and platform shoes. Yet, her sleek hair and elegant earrings reflected the sophistication of the sculpted bodice, preventing the look from becoming too twee.

Shailene Woodley: While this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 flared mini was certainly on the short side, I loved seeing Shailene have some flirty, youthful fun with fashion. The boots were the right way to wrap up this leopard-print dress—and even though they hit at mid-ankle, her legs still looked a mile long.

Lake Bell: Red was Lake’s colour du jour in this Valentino Spring 2018 number, where she fully committed to the hue from head to toe. It was undoubtedly striking despite its inherent quirkiness—and my wish that the poncho-style dress had a bit more shape.

Bianca Brandolini d’Adda: Taking a page from Victoria Beckham’s playbook, Bianca wore her loose trousers extra-long in this Valentino Resort 2018 ensemble, yet I still like the elongating, two-tone effect styled effortlessly with the knit jumper.

Olivia Palermo: I wanted to like this Valentino Spring 2018 look, but Olivia yet again lost me with the proportion play here between the dark hue of the black cropped top, the loosely flowing, powdery-blue dress, and the long granny-chic sweater. I’m sure the frock had some beautiful movement away from that sweater.

Izabel Goulart: Showing off one of the label’s Spring 2018 mini frocks, the model was lovely in this little white dress that tempered her sexy style with a precious twist in the ruffled collar detail and long bow at the back.

Clotilde Courau: Sheer lace again made an appearance in this Valentino Resort 2018 gown, which was one of the more dramatic looks on the front row. The graphic, pixel print coat added something of a multi-colour, boho spirit to the dress.

Donatella Versace: The designer was very recognizable in a signature Versace look, with this close-fitting asymmetrical black dress styled with platforms.

    Shailene looks cute with bangs, the dress is okay, but the boots are an awkward length IMO.

    Izabel is definitely my favorite here, loved it even more from the back!

    Kate and Isabel look great, the rest is sad.

    Izabel.

    Shailene looks as if she just stopped by on her way to a figure skating competition. I do really like Bianca and Izabel and the pixel coat on Clotilde is quite fun.

    Kate looks so much better in the jacket. The dress is aging her despite its youthfulness. Isabel looks good from front on but loses me when she turns to expose the cut out. Bianca is my favourite.

    Kate looks okay but a tad twee. Shailene looks like she is channeling an edgy figure skater. Lake has taken quirky to the edge and pushed it over into looking just plain silly. Love Bianco’s look which is very effortless but the hem thing again. Olivia has started to believe the hype that she is ome kind of fashion mix master genius and is now always too trendy and usually needs to subtract a piece, but I love the shoes. Izabel looks the terrific here as does Donatella, ankles up. I had no idea who Clotilde is so I Googled her up and was shocked to see that she is under 50. I had thought older based on the outfit.

    I like Bianca minus the extra long hem (why???) and Isabel.

    I like Kate’s dress, but not the shoes.

    Lake Bell is a fashion tragedy. Seriously!

    Bianca pants need hemmed but otherwise I do like the outfit. Lake lost me at the matching tights. Donatella look isn’t exciting but she does own it. The rest I could leave.

    The first row + Izabel + Donatella = Love.

  11. Leandra January 25, 2018 at 2:49 pm #

    Isabel Goulart for the win.

    Except for Donatell’s dress, no to all of these. Olivia Palermo always looks like a walking trend.

      She is the definition of a fashion victim. If it doesn’t come off as effortless, you just look like a clown in my opinion.

    • Mimi January 26, 2018 at 4:25 pm #

      and her eye shadow makes her look sickly!

  13. EmmaWoodhouse January 25, 2018 at 2:40 pm #

    I don’t like any of these, tbh.
