Paris Couture Shows: Armani Prive, Giambattista Valli, Alexandre Vauthier

Billowing dresses, full skirts, and floral color is what Giambattista Valli says his women want, and so that is what they get.

Alexandre Vauthier brought a different kind of party to Paris, that is, a pop star princess party. We can imagine our favorite songstresses strutting the red carpets in Vauthier’s saucy numbers.
