So this is Valentino’s Fall 2009 Haute Couture Collection. I like this , but I don’t LOOOOOOVE it. I feel like I’ve seen this somewhere else before but I can’t put my finger on it. The lace gown in the last photo is wonderful, but could pass for a Jessica McClintock gown. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, BUT it is supposed to be Haute Couture. Which means it probably costs more than your car. I think what draws me in are those masks… so mysterious, so Venetian… (like the casino) . No, I’m kidding. I like those masks/ hats… it’s a twofer! Is it me, or does the coat in the 2nd photo look Victor & Rolf-ish?
