Valentino Haute Couture top 2011 review.

At Valentino Haute Couture, after nearly a half century of famous couture creations, Valentino has retired, leaving the couture house in the capable hands of his two long-time collaborators, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.

They are continuing a world-famous tradition of opulent femininity, continuing to focus on lace, chiffon and his signature color...RED.

You just gotta love those Italians...they know they look hot in red, and from the world-famous pasta sauces to their fiery passion for romance, music and art, red is a most appropriate color, especially for Valentino Haute Couture!

Valentino became popular with royalty (Princess Margaret) and movie stars alike (Elizabeth Taylor) and his bridal gowns were chosen for the weddings of Jackie O and Jennifer Lopez.

This season's picks are so delicate and sheer, emphasizing ultra-sheer fabrics and lace, bows and flowers, for a truly feminine collection.

I love the simplicity, elegance, and apparent comfort of this design. They make it look easy!

Valentino Couture S/S 11

This one is my favorite, I feel it embodies the true Valentino tradition! Stunning! We all admire the details and hand-made touches that set true haute couture designers apart from the rest!

Valentino Couture S/S 11

How's this for the sheerest cocktail suit.....totally risque! I really appreciate the soft and glowing fabric in a yummy neutral color, posing a striking balance between traditional conservatism and feminine sensuality!

Nice skin... Pattern

Although I adore the dusty aqua color, and I applaud the feathery texture, as I love using natural elements like feathers and gems in my own designs, I am not sure anyone would be flattered by the bulk and extra width this design portrays. How many women want to appear shorter and wider?

As these creations testify, this is the sheerest collection ever! Can anyone say "Peek-a-boo"?

Perhaps carrying a voluptuous wrap would give the wearer an option to...first of all, keep warm when the wind blows, and secondly, to appear more demure and innocent when accidentally running into your mother-in-law or boss on the street or in a restaurant!

How many times do women complain of feeling chilled?

May we suggest a haute couture wrap?
