Valentino really went all out this time around - but why shouldn't he? He's celebrating his 45th anniversary in fashion!
No doubt about it, the show was extravagant: marabou, sequins, fur, and lamé went every which way. Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, Donatella Versace, Tom Ford, and Diane von Furstenberg all populated the front row. The models looked dressed and ready for a ball, and there was plenty of Valentino's trademark old-school glamour to go around.
Opulently detailed suits in white, grey, and black were followed by gorgeous cocktail dresses in gold, silver, black, purple, and pink. For the finale, Valentino sent endless amounts of those red carpet-worthy floor-length gowns he does so well: bejeweled, satiny, neck-plunging absolutely divine gowns. And of course, the most strikingly beautiful dress was in his favorite color: red. I can't wait to see what happens on his 50th anniversary!
