Runway : Valentino Haute Couture 2010

Among the rest of the Haute Couture 2010 collections, Valentino is one of my favorites! Many people have voiced out that its SO NOT VALENTINO/VALENTINO IS DEAD.. or others (like me) will say, BREAK THE TRADITION AND I LOVE IT. But hmm, Haute Couture?.. more like a Ready-To-Wear colletion. Also adopting the "draping" trend, like Rodarte and Burberry. A few of the models also looked "Avatar-ish" for their make-up, interesting!

Weirdly loving how those Blazers/outerwear are designed (Balenciaga much). Doesn't the pink one in the middle remind you of your childhood favorite character (for some)?.. Pink Power Rangers anyone?

Some of my favorite pieces.. I love the red one, its so GaGa-esque too, like the one she met to meet the Queen of England. Far left.. Chloe Sevigny in Valentino for Golden Globes?

Ribbon Veils/Mask, Bats were also seen in the collection.. I dislike them.

I absolutely adore the heels! But.. here's a break down of what I felt it looked like :

It'll probably work once.. (or never to some), but I'm hoping for Valentino to bring back its roots for RTW in about 3-5 weeks time. Obvious lack of red.

Would love to read your comments on the collection!
