On Our Radar: Valentino's Couture Fall 2014 Pre-Raphaelite Goddesses

It's the age of innocence at Valentino. Their Fall 2014 Couture collection takes us for a languorous stroll through the garden of good (an air of youthful purity prevails) and evil (seduction comes by way of sheer, body-caressing tulle and bold black leather belts). The result: an ethereal blend of Romantic-era charm, Roman goddess-worship, and refined, restrained classicism.

Arguably, these are simply extremely pretty, expertly constructed dresses for red-carpet princesses, Park Avenue princesses, and mythological princesses alike, but you can't deny the fact that power duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are damn good at what they do.
