Shop Till U Drop!!!

But do it in style…

I love you Valentino!

I love u Valentino!

Yesterday,in Paris Fashion week ,and in  a glamorous show, Valentino,the great Italian designer said goodbye to the fashion world after his decision to retire….The show ended in the most fabulous way,with all the girls crossing the catwalk in  the same RED Valentino dress……

“I am so sad, we’re witnessing the end of an era of great Italian fashion couturiers. When he is gone there is no one to replace him,” said Italian television celebrity Simona Ventura, blinking away tears.

This post is dedicated to all the girls of my age (or almost),who grew up watching Linda,Naomi,Christy,Sidney and all the goddesses of the Top Model’s era wearing Valentino’s amazing creations……

(More after the cut)…

With more than 50 years in the fashion industry Valentino decided it was time to stop…He’s apparently one of the greatest designers of the 20th century.Your grandma might have dreamed of a Valentino dress ,then  your mom and then you….

From all his great work,his love and passion about creating red dresses it’s certainly the first thing that comes on our minds.His RED collections  are and will always be  unforgettable….

I love u  Valentino page

My idea of honouring this legend ,since i’m just a humble sl blogger,was to put on a red dress and get my feet wet in Fontana di Trevi in Roma,where it all started half a century ago ….

I love you Valentino!

I love u  Valentino

You’re the best!

  1. Valentino definitely had a gift. When things were so trashy in the late Eighties (look at some of the Oscar red carpets from that time), he kept up the standard for taste and true sophistication.

    Ciao, Signor Garavani. Stop by sometime for a visit — stop by SL and open up a new shop!
