Valentino is the Love of My Life

... he really is.


Fur, brocade, gold lamé, flutter sleeves, glitter appliqués, ruching (my God, was there ruching)... Valentino has combined it all into one big, glamorous explosion. Again. And it is perfect, and I love him for it. I wouldn't necessarily wear any of these pieces, but that doesn't make them any less pleasing to look at. It is, after all, couture. Can't you picture Cruella DeVille in all of this? You know she at least has the white coat hanging in her closet, because I am pretty sure the collar is a baby polar bear. And she probably wore that gold dress to prom with, like, a matching headdress. These are not necessarily designs for the everyday woman, but I still love Valentino very much and with all of my heart. Seriously.

oooh, i adore the gold dress... i'm quite often in two minds about his stuff, and have to say the rose dress isn't my cup of tea - but there's always something i just stop at while my jaw drops... sigh... one day!
