Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2013.

I don't have a lot to say on this collection other than it makes me want to find a place to wear a gown.  Someone sort out a reason for me to get all gussied up please. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

For me, it missed the mark here and there.  I'm not a huge fan of the 80s 'high low' skirt style when it comes to couture...or anything other than a cheapo skirt.  And things may have skewed grown-up Cavalli at times.  And sometimes a little Dior (which I am not complaining about.)  But mostly, I spent the majority of the time I was looking at this collection squealing.  See the entire collection here.
