It's Couture Week: Giambattista Valli Fall 2016 Couture

"One reason Valli’s front row is so well stocked with pretty young things—who were this season joined by an emotive Céline Dion, clapping enthusiastically and shouting “Bravo!” at the end—is that he’s tapped into what the party set likes to wear. As a rule, it’s ornate and it’s body-confident. That meant that the micro lengths were balanced by outsized sleeves, exaggerated ruffled shoulders, even the occasional neck ruff. A few minis were accessorized with floor-scraping tulle trains—one part regal, and the other part Stephanie Seymour in Guns N' Roses’ “November Rain.” When dresses reached the floor, they tended to be diaphanous and pleated, draped goddess style from an asymmetric neckline or sweeping from both shoulders like a cape. Valli concluded, like he usually does, with a trio of tiered and flounced tulle confections so grand that they might’ve intimidated Empress Joséphine" -
