When the news broke a few months ago that French designer Giambattista Valli was inducted as a gust member to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, I was beyond ecstatic! His ready to wear collections are always pure representations of femininity and luxury and I am such a big fan. As...

Ontem, após os desfiles de Versace e de Dior, Giambattista Valli desfilou em Paris as suas propostas de Haute Couture para esta Primavera/Verão. Confesso que há certos modelos que já estou a ver desfilar na red carpet da cerimónia dos Oscares, e apesar da paleta de Giambattista ter sido com...

Definitely way more successes than fails in this Giambattista Valli show, which for the most part, showed off his elegant, feminine handwriting and his great use of colour and heavy embellishment. However, some of the appliqués were a bit overdone, and there were a few dresses in the show that...

Once I got over the disappointing lack of colour in this show (I love what Valli does with pinks, and I would have liked to see more of them), I realised that the collection was quite beautiful. I love that Giambattista Valli has managed to create such a strong signature in such a short time,...

Timeless beauty Berenice Bejo wore the Giambattista Valli Haut Couture gown with a stunning tangerine print. The drama and glamour is undeniable but it is the color and print that is inspiring me to shop for this look to bring to my everyday. Alice + Olivia Robin One-Shoulder Maxi Dress at...

When Jennifer Lawrence jokingly said she didn't know what haute couture meant at the Golden Globes, far too much of the population probably shook their heads in agreement. Oh, how I wish I could show each one of them Giambattista Valli's Couture Spring 2013 line to differentiate between haute...

Giambattista Valli's couture collection didn't feel particularly new (I spotted Viktor and Rolf ideas, as well as a bit of Mary Katrantzou and Valentino) nor was it very exciting. But couture doesn't need to be those things, it needs to be beautiful and it needs to be different from ready to...

Where: At the opening ceremony of the 65th Cannes Film Festival and the 'Moonrise Kingdom' premiere Wearing: In a custom-made silk draped one-shoulder mint green Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown Verdict: Wow, wow, wow!!!! This is what I was expecting, gorgeous from the word go, I love...
