by Mindy Yang

"There’s something so recognizable about a Valentino dress today. It’s almost invariably floor-length (although there’s the odd short one, too) and seemingly demure, though plenty of gauzy, sparkle-sprinkled transparency and more than a few plunging Grecian necklines come into it. But really, it’s the incredible things these designers and their Roman workforce can do with fabric that makes each dress a paradox of age-old hand-wrought elaborateness and youthful simplicity," ~Vogue.

By Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, of course.
