A number of Hollywood stars like to attend Valentino's luxury shows. Singer Celine Dion, ethereal actress Gwyneth Paltrow and legend of the modeling world Naomi Campbell all didn't want to miss the last one. The most extravagant and feathered model belonged to Celine Dion, who could have easily sported the robe on the catwalk, because the entire haute couture FW19/20 collection carried in a similarly eccentric spirit.
Creative director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli, decided to design models that would symbolize freedom and individuality. He utilized bold patterns and colors as well as accessories in the form of headgear, feathers, butterflies or flowers.
In addition to the eccentric models behind which are hours upon hours of unbelievably precise handicraft, the collection also featurs several minimalist pieces that are hard to resist! Black sequin dresses with an organza collar, as well as luxury aquamarine robes, can easily be worn even by more conservative individuals.
Our favorite is a pink dress with a ribbon at the waist, a slightly transparent top and a feather skirt. A luxurious and sophisticated kind of beauty that we immediately fell in love with!
The model which, on the contrary, did not appeal to us at all, is a yellow fringed dress in which, like it or not, you'll look like sunflower - or worse, like a cleaning mop. That's definitely not a visage you should be aiming for with a dress that costs several tens to hundreds of thousands crowns…
From a renowned brand like Valentino, you expect the very best from the beginning of their show. So did I, and it is with great regret that I admit I really shouldn't have.
If kitsch followed by total boredom is what you're after, you're feel right at home here. I'm sorry, but I can't see anything extraordinary on a gigantic purple dress with a massive ribbon, as presented by Gigi Hadid. Quite the contrary! It is ridiculous to see these creations from the hands of experienced grandmasters, who have done an absolutely lousy job this time, worthy of first year fashion design students…
The rest will bore you to sleep, with a single refreshment in the form of "spaghetti buns". The only thing worth mentioning is a silver dress with a leafy 3D hat. However, after the shows put together by Elie Saab or Zuhair Murad, this is a pretty lame attempt.
