Valentino Fall 2009 Haute Couture

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli of Valentino presented a haute couture collection that had a lot of legs, lace and ruffles.  The elaborate garments and shoes looked just as good coming down the runway as they did going back up.

There was lace applique on nude fabric that looked as if the lace had been adhered directly to the skin of the models and a fabulous pair of fringed peep-toe booties.

And one of my favourite pieces was a simply ornate strapless floor length feathered gown with nude petals underneath.
