Last week Valentino had a fete at his chateau Wideville to launch the opening of the Valentino Garavani archives which will be opening to the public in September.

The only itty bitty problem with going to the archive, is that you will leave filled with visions of the most beautiful flounces, laces and dresses but you will not be able to take one home and the Master is not in the House of Valentino anymore so what is a girl to do?
Vintage Valentino haute couture. Such a nice ring to it don't you think?!
We are thrilled to have a parrot-tulip yellow chiffon gown covered in flounces with a silk draped bodice. This gown is classic Valentino at his loveliest. What is the quote from the wonderful Valentino documentary, "I love beauty, it's not my fault"
No, Mr. Valentino it certainly is not.
Valentino haute couture yellow gown. Size 4.
