What else to expect from whimsical Anne “musing” [read acting as muse] for Valentino other than getting married in an ethereal ivory silk point d’esprit tulle designed, created, ideated by the Emperor himself with the bride actively involved.
The wholesome prettiness was conceived in the Atelier in Rome by the same seamstresses that have been working for la Maison forever.
Now, since everything was all-a-bride-dreams-of inspired, the setting of the ceremony, the ideal husband, the casual chic romantic countryside and a flawless wedding gown designed by a master in command in the world of fashion (not found through the racks in Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, for God sake), detractors couldn’t shut up and had to find a nun in a stripper club: what’s with the headpiece?
‘1920’s inspired lace flower beaded with crystals’, is it enough or you’ve gotta be bitter just because you are not engaged?
And then, excusez moi, but what can you get out of a grainy picture shot at a distance by a desperate paparazzo, to begin with?
You must be insane to insinuate some wardrobe malfunction made by Valentino.
And here she was stunning (and glowing, since she was getting married in a week).
Balenciaga: architectural rigidity + movement = “exceptional, understated, modern elegance”
Carven: from British colonial India to the Grand Palais, Paris.
first: I live vicariously through my friends who are in paris for fashion week. I eat croissants in the morning, tea and macaroons in the afternoon, all those typical small brasseries at the Marais …
second: Chanel following trends? the collection has all the elements of the fall, it doesn;t stand out.
third: Alexandre McQueen looks more couture than ready to wear: congratulations for the construction, lengths, fur, colors.
Yves Saint Laurent sharp, tailored chicness. Adieux Stefano.
Hermes so tremendously French countryside it’s not even real!
Givenchy: did anybody say boots? the brown ombre’ ones are fabulously SICK!
Valentino black is back.
Lanvin & Carven: we dedicated the fall 12 board on Pinterest.
whomever I haven’t mentioned wasn’t really worth a WOW
