Look at the stars, look how they shine for you
I've never been the greatest follower of big name designers and runway fashions, preferring the smaller, quirkier world of style blogs. But every now and then a collection comes along that truly takes your breath away. For the past couple of years it was Dolce and Gabbana, and their incredible reforming of medieval religious iconography and the decadence of European cathedrals into stunning gowns and dresses. Right now, it's Valentino, whose intricate embroidery, use of magical space motifs, and contrasting of fabrics and textures has created an entirely original and unforgettable pre-Fall collection. Now if somebody could send me a dress or a hundred I'd be very grateful.
