Although I "tried" to cut it down to three collections that stirred my spirits, as you can tell, that failed and I ended up with five. Nevertheless, I'm anxious to voice my opinion on what pieces made it to my category of wonderment/exploding fantasy/fabulosity (yes, that is a single category). Here they are...
Opera was the theme that swept fifty-five looks from Valentino's collection. Tulle, lace, feathers, and a sheer bustier with leaf-like gem embellishments in earth tones left me satisfied. It almost rectified the hideous rock stud bags that bubbled up from primordial ooze in hell. (yes, I hate them)
Never thought I could be convinced to love navy as much as I do now. Oh, and that dress on the far left? My future wedding gown. It's done.
If Mariah Carey wasn't front row at this show, I don't know WTF she could have been doing that was more important. Butterflies were overwhelmingly plastered on walls and on model's faces for a very ladylike showing of Greco-Roman inspired pieces.

My apologies for the all white choices. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to like Raf Simon's designs for Dior. I'm a die hard Galliano fan girl all the way. The immense amount of detail, flowers, punched-out dots (sounds crass but I don't know how else to describe it), milky plastic layers (sorry again) has convinced me of his minimalist teachings. It's the embodiment of Spring.
