Spring 09 Fashion Week - Valentino

Rumor has it that Alessandra Facchinetti is not going to be with Valentino much longer. She's not impressing me, either. Her Spring '09 collection has too much heavily beaded embellishment to the point of ridiculousness.

That second dress looks like it's sprouting some particularly virulent mold.

I'm torn on these yellow numbers. I think the long dress is more successful, but there's something vaguely Klimt-ian about the second that I like. Still too many lumpy beads though.

On the other end of the spectrum, Faccinetti's belted jackets paired with shorts were cute cute.

...and her gossamer gowns looked over their shoulder at the glory days of Valentino past.
