Ancient Rome

16 Jul

Valentino Couture AW1415

The Valentino by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show was a tribute to Ancient Rome and to painters such as Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

Other Ancient Rome-inspired collections : Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2003 (the eclectic references of this show included Ancient Rome), Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 (the Guido Palau-styled braided chignons of this show were influenced by Ancient Rome).

To read about other Ancient Rome-inspired collections or Lawrence Alma-Tadema-influenced collections, search for the « Rome » and « Lawrence Alma-Tadema » posts that I have respectively published on July 8, 2013 and on January 26, 2014.

      Indeed, thank you ! Maybe that your perfect adjectives to describe this delicately beautiful gown will inspire a future “makeup trends” post (“Be sexy and scintillating !”) on your stylish blog ! ❤

      Thank you ! That’s incredible how, while staying true to Valentino’s legacy, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have brought this iconic house into modernity by referencing the classical beauty of the past ! Definitely priceless ! XO
