Valentino can always be counted on for its swoon-worthy selection of red carpet gowns, but for spring 2019 creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli delivered a collection brimming with the kind of covetable looks that those of us outside of Hollywood's inner circle could conceivably wear—and feel every bit as fabulous in.
The first 14 looks presented at the label's Paris fashion week show were cast in the colour black, but that didn't stop them making a lasting impression thanks to couture-like silhouettes and textural details.
A strong shade game
When high-impact hues did start to enter the mix, punchy combinations and swirling patterns were a joy to behold.
Elevated everyday wear
Eminently wearable looks—think black pans and a white shirt—felt fresh, and exactly what woman the world over want, and need, in their wardrobes.
Introducing the feather-adorned flats we never knew we needed. Bold hats, gold earrings and elegant bags completed the picture.
Just because the brand's daywear was on point doesn't mean its evening offering was any less dreamy. From a signature crimson gown that trailed the floor, to glamorous sequins and ethereal tulle, we're sure we'll see these looks light up the red carpet in no time.
