Having a baby will foil even the best laid plans.
Starting this illustration approximately 3 hours after the Valentino Spring Couture show hit Paris back in January, it has only been this week that I was able to finish it! Better late than never, I guess.
This collection was perhaps one of the most beautiful that Pierpaolo Piccioli has delivered for Valentino in recent memory.
Sumptuous and ethereal - each look was better than the last. I had grandiose ideas of illustrating numerous looks, however - as mentioned - babies get in the way. I’m just pleased that I was able to finish this one; combining one of my favourite gowns with the stunningly elfish beauty look by the always incredible Pat McGrath.
