Giambattista Valli - Paris Spring 2009

Obscenely pleated skirts were tempered with dainty floral appliqués and ribbon belts, but things really got grand when the gowns began their parade. Ruffled skirts that eclipse Oscar in volume weren't even remotely grounded--instead, Valli added more of the same up top. While they were statement-making indeed, with clothes so accomplished, who really needs dessert?
