It appears that Alessandra Facchinetti does not disappoint. Her stunning Valentino Resort 2009 collection is every bit as luscious as her Fall 2008 line, with each ruffle and seam in perfect pitch with the mood of the collection: sleek sophisticate with a touch of feminine. My top picks:
1. Although I shied away from red for years, this power suit is what every woman needs to assert herself. The Victorian influence is done in an elegant, rather than rocker, manner.
2. A frosty pink that turns warmer as you continue staring.
3. The ruffles on this pale yellow suit delicately move with you.
