Well it seems as if Fall 2007 Couture should be renamed The Party Season. Everyone, it seems, has something to celebrate. Valentino celebrated 45 years in the fashion biz with a weeklong blitz of parties. The multitude of celebratory events was such that I couldn't tell who was coming or going, nor could I tell who wore what to which day/evening party. It was pretty much one long party that called for several outfit changes. It was all a bit ridiculous but a fantastic opportunity for celebrities to turn the several red carpets into a Valentino retrospective.
The show itself was a marvel. It is a sure bet that you will be seeing several of his catwalk creations once awards season rolls around.
