A pretty frock and Audrey Hepburn are my ideas of beauty personified. Which is why when viewing the Giambattista Valli fall 2014 show, it was as if he had climbed into my dreams and created these nothing short of exquisite pieces. I could only sigh with desire after each piece.
It’s been reported that Valli visited the Alhambra Gardens years ago and saved his inspiration from it it for release at the right time. The collection has a lush look of what can be only described as paradise placed on a runway. These rich creations illicit one word "genius". "They'll be the best-seller," Valli announced, because they would lend themselves so well to weddings.”
This show was something that old and new Hollywood can relate to; as well as the flash bulbs from the paparazzi or in this case the Getty Images employed photographers. Obviously the lights were too bright hence the MOSCOT sunglasses that the models wore. Talk about the perfect collaboration: MOSCOT and Valli.
There are many times when viewing a Haute Couture fashion show, the pieces seem so designed for editorial use or for celebs to have for a one time wear that they are not accessible to the regular woman who wants to feel unique but within her budget. Not that these will be affordable to us regular gals but they sure feel as if they were created with our bodies and desires in mind. "The secret of my girls is that they're always eccentric," he said before his show. "They don't play it. They are, said Valli.
The mix of the MOSCOT sunglasses for sure echoes the idea that of how a princess would feel after slipping into one of these feminine gowns and realizing that she was so bright needed shades.
Quite simply Valli captured the essence of the girl that is demure on the outside but all frilly frocked gorgeous on the inside.
