PARIS (AP) – Designer Giambattista Valli scored a coup in dressing Hollywood’s newest bride Amal Alamuddin, who recently married one-time bachelor George Clooney in Venice, and is quickly becoming one of the most photographed women in the world
So when the British-Lebanese human rights lawyer made her first appearance after the wedding wearing a Valli couture dress, it was clearly a major boost for the Paris-based designer.
At a recent Paris fashion show, Valli (seen in the left photo acknowledging the applause from the audience) was busy producing an archetypally spring show, which featured his usual mantra light, white and feminine.
In plentiful supply was his signature A-line, short skirt aesthetic with sporty shoulders.
The USP for this collection was to be found in its emphasis on floral and organic prints, flashes of blue, and its channelling of the on-trend Balkan jacket and tunic styles.
There were even oversize round Grecian pendants, thick ruffled fabric details on skirts and two-tier fringed dresses. PHOTOS: AP
