Paris Spring 2011 RTW: Valentino

Since Valentino's retirement, the collections bearing his name are pale, wan reflections of the master's work. They lack his creative power, the elegant sensuality. The Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear was no different — not a single outfit possessed the WOW-effect that used to be a Valentino trademark.

The alright:

The "What-were-they-thinking":

Shiny satin short set, ill-fitting and matronly on top, bringing to mind nothing so much as a Maoist worker's uniform jazzed up.

1980's bridesmaid's dress in tropical tomato, anyone?

Good day, sun shines!There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.It's all about christmas jewelry that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the black pearl bracelet with you.If you get a chance pop up by my page, maybe you would like cultured pearl earrings.
