Valentino Fall 2012: Ready to Wear

Im like, totally ready to wear this collection. I really like the mix of russian/scandinavian/oriental motif--the effect is generally folksy/foreign, without referencing any one area in particular, making it evocative of a vaguely-european fairy-tale-y aesthetic that I really respond to. The effect is reinforced by the middle-parted, twisty hair-dos and the girly ankle-strap footwear. So sweet and demure. And speaking of fairy tales, the all-red/all-white outfits make me think of Snow White and Rose Red, whom I always liked reading about as a child. Plus, that coat is amazing!
