A fashion face off happened tonight which fired up the internet and press as Derek Zoolander and Hansel made cameos at the end of Valentino. As soon as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson appeared on the runway, the music switched to 'Don't You Love Me' by The Human League and guests popped onto their feet, cheering as the boys strutted down the runway. It seems as though, from the excited audience, that Zoolander 2 will be a smash hit among the fash-pack and there's nothing better than seeing top fashion editors like Franca Sozzani and Anna Wintour smiling and laughing along with the audience. And although I'm a little confused, I loved the stunt; it's so refreshing to see fashion through a little comedy. Comedy which has created amazing buzz and excitement surrounding Valentino. But, let's not forget the beautiful work which Pierpaolo and Maria Grazia created this season.
The intricate collection features inspiration from the designers roots, who looked at various artists and muses for inspiration. The women of inspiration rejected the era's conventions and opted for unique silhouettes and personal style. Valentino's collection features A-line silhouettes, and dragon motifs adorned across black dresses. There were also many evening looks which grabbed a lot of attention, like the simple black and white dress which closed the show; minimalist, yet sexy.
