Socialites and celebrities were perched in the front row for the Valentino Fall 2018 Haute Couture show in Paris on Wednesday (July 4).
Nicky Hilton Rothschild: Nicky has always been a fan of Valentino, she even wore a Valentino Haute Couture gown to her wedding three years ago, so her attendance was expected at this event. This hot-pink Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 ruffled and embellished gown styled with a matching clutch might be a bit too girlish for some, but for me it fits with the Hilton style mold.
Amber Heard: While Nicky was channeling her inner Barbie, Amber was channeling her inner cowgirl in this western-inspired printed dress from the Resort 2019 collection. The boots really solidify the look. Thankfully, that’s as far as she went when it came to accessorizing.
Tracee Ellis Ross: Like Mandy Moore, Tracee has attended several events this fashion week. Her stark white look which hails from the Valentino Fall 2018 collection is beautifully fluid; and the accessories help give the look an edge – but I wasn’t a fan of the heavy boots.
Olivia Palermo: Bold colour isn’t usually Olivia’s thing, but this scallop trimmed Valentino Fall 2018 high-low dress served to buck that trend. This is one of those rare occasions that I found her dress more interesting than her accessories.
Lucy Boynton: The English actress opted for the most twee dress of the bunch, selecting a look from the Resort 2019 collection. I have to say I’m not sure this colour palette is working out too well for her.
Alba Rohrwacher: The Italian actress and Valentino go hand-in-hand. Alba does not walk the red carpet in anything but Valentino – excluding one custom Prada look during Berlin Film Festival. Usually she goes for a more subtle, no-fuss approach, but this time it was all about colour and bold prints.
