Entries in valentino (2)


belles of the ball

There were so many beautiful dresses at the Oscars last night, but these two were hands down my favorite. Kiera Knightley looked like a dream in Valentino. Styled by Leith Clark, the gown was feminine and whimsical and I think Kiera should live in it. Ms. Leith posted a detailed shot of the dress on instagram... it's beautiful. Chloe Moretz in Miu Miu looks like an extra from my favorite film, Marie Antoinette. The cut of the gown, and that floral silk! Good grief. Also, how cute are those pockets? A perfect solution to the "what do I do with my hands" problem :)

a valentino wedding

I always joke about how I’m not going to have a big wedding – when the time comes, I may even elope! – but I will not skimp on a wedding dress. A gown along the lines of this bride’s stunning Valentino frock might do the trick. I’ve been obsessed with the number since I first saw it in the Italian couturier's spring 2011 collection. Since then, it’s starred in ads and movie premieres alike… But to wear it as a wedding dress?! Pure genius. Not to mention, the nuptials itself looks as if it could have come straight out of the pages of Vogue. La Adoro!
