First Dibs: Valentino Couture Fall 2016 Look 51

In their last couture outing for the house before Chiuri’s jump to Dior, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri invoked the high drama of Shakespeare and the Elizabethan era. Look 51 is a tender, provocative aside from the sober, parochial bodices and doublets anchoring the collection. Accented with delicate black ruffles around the wrist and neck, the sheer, silver-sequined gown marries its romantic silhouette with subtle sex appeal. Hopefully it won’t get to the red carpet first, because we call first dibs.
