Valentino is obviously marketing their 2010 couture line to the youth set, what with the short hemlines. It's all a little homage à Barbie, too, not because there is any pink in the collection, but because my Barbie and Skipper had clothes very reminiscent of some of these looks when I was a kid in the late 60s - early 70s. (See images 1, 2, 4, 7, and 8.) There was also a bit of unfortunate fug in the collection in the form of two space-age French maid costumes (image 5). And can a gal walk in that kinda-cheap-looking silver number?
