Maison Valentino’s Modern Dancers

Maison Valentino's AW16 Ballet Inspired Collection

Despite wall to wall fashion coverage this past month, it wasn’t until the penultimate day of the final week in Paris that I witnessed my favourite show – Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli for Maison Valentino.

Having studied ballet when I was younger, the design duo’s ode to modern dance brought back fond memories of my time in the studio.  I loved how they styled these tutu inspired dresses with everyday sweaters and simple black leggings, and although this may not be everyday attire, what’s fashion without a little fantasy?  Something now sorely missing from many of today’s street style-centric shows.

The hair and beauty added to the dance themed spirit of the occasion, with British make-up artist Pat McGrath creating these ‘Bare and Beautiful’ ballet ready looks…

Inspiring in more ways than one.
