    Not a true follower of opera but when its music fills my ears…
    this image will most definitely fill my mind…
    sophisticated, feminine + luxurious~

      Absolutely indeed ! The life of Violetta from “La traviata” would have been less tragic if she had such a sumptuously seethrough gown !

      Thank you so much ! This dress is so beautiful that, if it wasn’t about such a sad story, it could close this Couture show as a wedding gown ! XO

      Oh, thank you so very much ! I was so jealous when I saw Katy Perry sporting this delicate gown on the Grammys red carpet yet, I confess, a little bit proud too that she had selected what I thought was the best piece of Valentino’s exquisite S/S 2014 couture collection !!!

      Thank you, Sherri ! It’s already Monday (the weekend went by so quickly …). Katy Perry wore this magnificent dress at the 2014 Grammy Awards, a few days after it was unveiled on Valentino’s Paris Haute Couture runway ! I wish you a magnificent week, Mayann
