Giambattista Valli Couture Is a Parade of Dresses We Want to See on the Oscars Red Carpet
Since we imagine that winning an Oscar is about as close to a real-life fairy tale as one can get, we're hoping the nominees are looking at Giambattista Valli's princess-worthy Couture collection. The lineup, the designer's ode to Paris, was as romance-inducing as the city itself. The sweet, floral-embroidered, and pink-dusted palette may not be the stuff Hollywood women typically reach for at award season, but we're making a special appeal to this season's newcomers with the fashion chops to pull it off (namely, Alicia Vikander or Saoirse Ronan).
The delicate variety of ladylike cocktail dresses would be a welcome departure from any of the overtly sexy or sleek iterations you've seen splashed on the red carpet. And for the wow factor in not-so-delicate doses, Giambattista presented a finale of tulle ball gowns. If there isn't a nominee the collection speaks to, we're making a special request to Olivia Palermo to slip into it instead. Until then, keep reading to fall in love with every piece.
