I SPEND LAST NIGH looking at the Valentino S/S 11 show,
and I realized as I've many times before since Mr. Valentino's departure, how much he is actually missed in the fashion world.
I can't begin to understand how hard it must've been for him to let his beloved company go
(have you seen Valentino The Last Emperor? If not DO IT), and then to see the collections following his departure.
I would cry myself to sleep every freaking night if I was him!
Where is sexiness (no, not Tom Ford the Gucci days sexy), the amazing details and the RED DRESS!
It's not that I don't like the spring collection - it's just as good as the rest (cute and pretty),
but what is truly lacking is the sassiness Valentino always brought to his collections.
Right now the only thing left of Valentino are the details, which are still sorta great, I think.
I saved the best picture for last - what a way to pass, dude!
The above collection is by the way Valentino Garavani's last collection for the Valentino brand (spring 2008 couture).
