This time next week the most fabulous of the worlds fabulous will have descended upon Paris to take in the Fall 2018 Couture shows. Paris Couture Fashion Week is one of my favorite times of the year because we get to see the newest designs from some of the most creative minds in the fashion industry. One of my favorite shows of the week is always Giambattista Valli. He gives glamour and drama like no other during the week and his designs are always a frothy confections that are incredibly daring. His designs have graced the red carpets at all the major film festivals and awards shows. So with festival season just around the corner and awards season coming right on the heels of that I am sure stars and stylists will be calling in their favorite looks from this collection moments after the designer takes his bow. One of the things I love about this show is that while other designers tend to focus more on the a-list celebrity Giambattista gives a good mix of one or two stars and a bunch of socialites. One of the frow regulars is usually Italian socialite Bianca Brandolini d’Adda. What I love about Bianca and her style is that while it isn’t necessarily in tune with what I typically think of Giambattista’s woman is but it always works. Bianca has a style that is this sexy and bohemian style that is always glamorous. So when I went to the runway to find a look for her to wear on the front row at this presentation next Monday I went to the brands Fall 2018 RTW collection picking this mixed print ensemble which features pink and yellow floral print ruffle detail long sleeve shirt and a pair of rust and olive sequin straight leg cropped pants for her. I feel like this look is totally something that Bianca would be drawn to and it is chic for the front row at a couture show. I feel like if she paired this look with a black Mansur Gavriel ‘Circle’ top handle bag, loose center parted beachy waves, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Suri’ fur and glitter detail sandals that this would be a perfect front row moment for Bianca. Olivia Palermo is another typical socialite that makes the couture week front row rounds. She is usually perched on the front row of almost all of the shows during the week. One of the shows where she delivers one of the best looks of the week is when she perches herself front row at the Giambattista Valli Couture show. While most big names pick a look off the most recent runway I went back over a year ago and picked this Giambattista Valli Spring 2017 Couture collection. I definitely think that this cocktail ensemble which features a ruffled high neckline, long sleeves, 3D floral embroidery and a grey ostrich feather hem is something that Olivia would totally be drawn to. Olivia loves a feather moment and this dress is definitely a major feather moment. It would be a fun moment for a front row moment. To ensure that this look is perfection I would style it with a chic updo, light smokey eyes, blush pink lips, a grey Serupi crystal embellished clutch, and a pair of black Gianvito Rossi lace detail sandals. Rowan Blanchard has been one of my favorite young style stars and I would love to see her attend the Giambattista Valli Couture show next Monday. She has worn several cute, and dramatic, Giambattista Valli Couture cocktail ensembles and I really want to see her search for her next moment while sitting with the most glamorous of the glamorous. I feel like Rowan would definitely be able to sell this chic green floral embroidered Giambattista Valli Spring 2018 Couture mini dress to me to me on the front row. This chic flirty style which features a ruffled off the shoulder neckline and black ribbon bow details on the waist is definitely something that I have wanted to see on a red carpet, but I do really think that it would be a chic moment for a front row and I really do believe that Rowan would sell this dress to me. Add a romantic updo, green smokey eyes, pink lips, and a pair of emerald green Alexandre Birman ‘Clarita Nappa’ silk knotted strap sandals to really make this a really chic moment for Rowan. Another young star whom I would really love to see jaunt off to Paris is Black-ish and Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi. She has become a couture maven having rocked looks from many of the major couture houses and some of my favorite looks have come courtesy of Giambattista Valli. I feel like Yara would give a sexy, yet age appropriate and flirty moment on the front row of the Giambattista Valli Fall 2018 Couture presentation during Paris Fashion Week wearing this pink and grey floral print cocktail dress from the brands Spring 2018 Couture collection which features a beaded halter neckline, ruched bralet style bodice, and a mini length skater skirt. This is another of the flirty cocktail dresses from this collection that I really wanted to see brought to the red carpet and I really do think that Yara would be able to sell this dress to me on this front row. I have styled this look many different ways in past wishes, but for the front row I went a more casual way to bring down the dress from its uber sexy cocktail vibe that it inherently has. A chic braided updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, and a pair of rose pink Laurence Dacade glitter effect platform sandals all would really make sure that this is a perfect front row moment for Yara.
