Valentino: From Russia With Love

The Valentino team of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli has once again shown they are in the Couture game for good. From the striking,  red crushed and black velvet themes from the times of the Czar to the continued domination of the fairy tale princess motif , which has clearly dominated the runways of the Fall 2011 Haute Couture, we are all floating down the aisle or into a grand event with them. We have the current crop of newly inaugurated royals to thank for this breath of fresh air.
