Just stunning. This is what I look for at Valentino but never find.
Thank god Valli is here to fill the void.

Those Metal flower belts and necklaces are SUCH a rip-off of Francesco Scognamiglio Fall 2011.

It's almost like Valentino done right. No overdone lace or ruffles.

Indeed that's what you'd expect from a house like Valentino and I think even though last season was already quite good, Giambattista confirmed today that he was clearly made for couture.
This is truly stunning. The silhouettes are great, very feminine and delicate as usual. And of course extremely elegant. The embellishement is gorgeous, great touches of colors and even with all that black & white the collection isn't boring.
There's so many looks that I'd love to see on the red carpet like thefrenchysaid he's really underrated. I'd kill to be a trophy-wife right now or a movie star stylist. :lol

I didn't like Valli's previous couture collection at all- it felt too forced. But this collection was so incredibly smooth and the subtle little ounces of....humor with the slightly oversized bows around the collars. The white dress with subtle the black accent and silver bow was amazing.

Never was much of a fan of Valli's work until now ....

It puzzles me why it took him so long to do couture. This man was born for this.

What I love about his couture so far is that they are so effortless. They're not forced or contrived. Everything is so heavenly.

This is absolutly stunnng. Im glad to see that Im not the only one how see's a bit of Valentino Garavini in this collection because this how Valentino should be done (I had no idea that he was offered the job at Valentino, I wish he would have taken it lol). I love that this collection is extremly well tailored and not over embellished with ruffles and beading but its very light and ethereal and above all else extremtly feminine. Ths is the kind of craftmenship I like to see in couture, not everythng has to be over the top. It looks like these garments were desinged with subtile hand and a close eye on how the garments drapes on the body. I am extremly empressed. Great job Gambattista!!!!!!
