The Valentino Fall 2012 Couture collection may be lacking the house's signature red hues, but there is no shortage in mysterious, slinky gowns. Opting to start the show off with dark, brooding blues, layers of chiffon and lace conceal the most sensual body parts.
The opaque panels and sheer, billowing layers create a dramatic yet seductive ambiance throughout the show. The tent-like skirts appear to emulate the movement of delicate dancing jellyfishes. Floral appliques and embellishments add a Garden of Eden mystique to Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli's stunning showcase of haute couture. To keep the runway from being overrun by brilliant ball gowns, bedroom boudoir caplets have been added to change up these already sensual silhouettes.
If sheer drapery and peek-a-boo layers make you swoon in fashion envy, the Valentino Fall 2012 Couture collection is sure to please your haute heart.
