The spring 2009 collection by Giambattista Valli is fabulous. Couldn't you see Carrie Bradshaw in one of these creations? They combine my favorite elements-elegance, sophistication, ladylike, bows, ruffles, the ballet, 50s vintage, Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn. I especially like the petticoats he puts under some of his day dresses. BTW Betsey Johnson has some great petticoats in stores now. His dresses are worn by Natalie Portman, Victoria Beckham, Mischa Barton, and Sarah Jessica Parker. As perhaps the heir apparent at Valentino, this is haute couture. His gowns can fetch $150,000! I also love the upswept hair, beautiful pointy pumps, and no jewelry. These dresses speak for themselves.
