Who doesn't love a good romance? Valentino's collections almost always fall into this category, but this time around the designers went totally romance-gaga for their couture presentation, even referencing the gardens of Marie Antoinette. Heavy beading, lots of lace, sheer gloves, delicate bows and very demure looks all reminded me of past romantics and a time when just the sliver of a wrist was completely shocking. File as simply beautiful.
