Fashion Knock-Offs: Valentino v. ZaraTuesday, August 07, 2012

Valentino captures ladylike elegance in a way few designers can. And their S/S 2012 collection was no exception. It consisted of beautiful, feminine pieces with just the right amount of structure and linearity to avoid that awkward girly style.
