The Master Of Couture

Hello everyone! So i said i would post on the second part of this past weekend in London . I divided the posts into 2 parts because it was a very eventful weekend and i wanted to share it in as much detail as i could manage with you all. Sunday was the day i attended the actual Valentino couture exhibition titled the 'Master of Couture'. It was the last day of the exhibition and it was insanely breathtaking. I felt like a chubby kid in charlie's chocolate factory, except none of that stuff was edible (physically at least) but i did soak in every moment and creation . My friend Adim thought i might have been exaggerating just a tad bit until she stepped in and got a little teary eyed. Each dress told a different story and it was evident that Valentino was definitely ahead of his time creatively. He is a visionary who created pieces so timeless that we had such a hard time  differentiating between dresses  created in the 1960's versus dresses created in the 2000's, It was really so  Magnificent. Unfortunately pictures were not  allowed and that was really sad, as i was looking forward to sharing these pictures with you. However i was able to find a couple pieces from the exhibition on the internet (somebody was naughty). Sadly only one of my favorites surfaced.

                            A security personnel wanted to join in  on the mini shoot. :) really nice guy.

                                                                              Too cool for school...........

     Now for some of  the pieces from the exhibition.......

 One of my Favorites........

The back of the infamous Valentino dress worn by Julia Robert to the 2001 Oscars.

The finale was the wedding dress made for the 1995 wedding of princess Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece. It was made from 10 different types of lace.

We followed the exhibition up with a viewing of the renaissance and medieval collection at the somerset house while we were waiting for the next becoming Picasso exhibition to begin. Once again no pictures were allowed  at the Picasso exhibition but on the bright side.... the exhibition runs till the end of May from about 10-6 pm everyday. so you can catch it if you are so disposed.

We ended the day with a stroll on the embankment pier and it was all so beautiful and serene...... it truly was the perfect end to a wonderful day.
