This is the first dress was that Valentino Garavani has made since his retirement in 2008, without a doubt it was worth the wait. I love the colour and I think she looks every bit the Russian princess. Note the tiara on her head with snowflake shaped diamonds. One word: amazing.
The fairy tale theme was a great idea for the Love Ball and I think it worked really well with the approach of the AW 11 collections. Russian ballerina/princess is definitely going to be the look I aspire to when the weather gets cold…
