The designers at Valentino made sure the collection was for the young at heart. Short babydoll dresses and kitten heels were popular themes throughout the collection. I have to say I actually like this collection better than the past collections that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli and have done for the brand.
If the Valentino collection was for the young at heart, then the Elie Saab collection was for the sexually aware, yet classy woman. The collection was full of fiery reds, bare legs, and deep v-cut necklines. Elie Saab did not disappoint me at all. Between this collection and Dior, you really see what couture is all about. Oh and did anybody catch Karolina Kurkova walking the Elie Saab show? I guess it is safe to safe that the Victoria Secret models have successfully merged back from couture to commercial to couture again.
Is it just me…or were some of the collections not very "couture?" I don't know. Some were awesome and others were kinda plain.
It has been like that for the past few seasons. I am not sure how I feel about it either. I wish couture was a bigger business like it was years ago.
