The magical F. world: Paris SS 2012 VALENTINO runway show

Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri's collection for Valentino Spring/Summer 2012 was two parts lady, three parts girly, four parts tailored, and five parts sexy, but not over-the-top. The duo was inspired by Georgia O'Keefe, Tina Modotti, and photographs by photographer Deborah Turbeville. Other inspirations included Mexico in the early 20th century. The embroidery, lace, puff shoulders, velvet, floral and colors did the talking on models that wore flat sandals or lace wedges so that the garments themselves were noticed and not the shoes. It seemed the dresses could easily slip from casual wear to red carpet .

For me it is amazingly beautiful. Valentino always surprises me in a good way. I really like the textures, shapes, laces, material combination and together it makes a perfect but simply looking clothes that emphasize the curves and the shapes of a girl/lady.  
However right now i can only dream :D
