When I think of volume, glamour, and ruffles I always think right to Giambattista Valli and he did not disappoint with his Spring 2016 Couture. In his 10th couture season I felt like this collection was a mediation on his previous 9 collections and some of the greatest pieces that he has created over the years and has done an fantastic job taking those codes and turning them into new looks without doing direct copies. When I search the couture collections I am always thinking about red carpet wear-ability and I am extremely excited to see this collection start to show up on the red carpet at awards shows, gala’s, movie premieres, and then ultimately the Oscars, the Met Ball, and the Cannes Film Festival. I can see almost every look from this collection on the red carpet but my favorite look was the yellow and green draped cocktail dress (pictured above) and I think someone like Zoe Saldana would be perfect to wear this dress on the red carpet. One look has already been worn for the Sidaction Gala by Diane Kruger (and I actually pinned this dress saying she should wear it!) and I am sure it is just the first of many red carpet moments for this collection. Red carpet style stars like Elizabeth Banks, Kiernan Shipka, Daisy Ridley, Emma Stone, Kate Bosworth, Emmy Rossum, Hilary Swank, Sonam Kapoor, Marion Cotillard, Tilda Swinton, Amy Adams, Kirsten Stewart, Cate Blanchett, Lea Seydoux, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Janelle Moane, Solange Knowles, Alicia Vikander, Brie Larson, Taylor Swift, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lily James, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rooney Mara, & Berenice Bejo are all women that I can picture wearing this collection on the red carpet.
I have been pinning all the collections on my Pinterest page with my immediate wishes of who I would die to see wearing these stunning couture creations, so to get more of an idea of who I want to wear what from the collections I would head over there!
