Alessandra-Valentino who-cares? I mean, old Balenciaga looked nothing like what NG just showed this season. Valentino never looked so light and effortlessly "ruffly" beautiful. Perhaps I'm so sick of faux "tough", fake punk, plastic goth, and cartoon horror genre - studs, zips, buckles, shredded shirts and slashed pants. It's pushing all the right secret "pretty" buttons that have remained firmly disdainful since the emergence of Marchesa and shutting down the thinking ones...grr...didn't think I'd fall for this, but I'll figure out an occasion to wear this to after I get my hands on them.
