Daily Inspiration: Alexander McQueen and Valentino Spring 2012

This set of collections is all about romantic looks. The Alexander McQueen collection was more of a dark romantic theme. With this collection Sarah Burton really went back to Lee's old theatric ways with the crazy masks on the girls. It was a nice touch even if no one will wear the looks that way. I could definitely see a bunch of these gorgeous gowns on movie red carpets this coming year.

The Valentino collection was beautiful as always and I love the hair. The lace, sheerness and textures are so gorgeous. I am normally not a real girly girl but these dresses are so pretty, I would kill to own any of them, if only I had an occasion to wear one... ;) I really like how they paired the dresses with flat sandals, it's a great contrast and really makes you focus more on the dresses.

  1. les robes sont magnifiques surtout la 3ème et 4ème photos

  2. Hmm...first is very artsy, but I wouldn't expect any less from McQueen. I like the second collection better for its wearability. I can actually see myself wearing the four dresses in the last row. If I could afford them, you know. ;)

  3. I was really taken with the McQueen collection - the theatrical element was great and I loved the ethereal feel.

  4. I swear, only a model can make an evening gown work with a flat.
    Still, I'll kill for any of those gowns!
