designer's caged dolls

yes you read that correctly.

in fact the entire headline is Valley of the caged dolls: Valentino celebrates 'dark side of first love' with gothic-inspired Couture show from the Daily Mail in the UK.

Babydoll dresses, caged models and romantic silhouettes were notably on display at Valentino's Couture show last night. Entitled 'the dark side of first love', Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli's fourth collection for the Italian label is reminiscent of the Twilight series, a nod to popular culture as Eclipse hysteria sets in.

But if Twilight is directed at teenage girls hoping to find their very own Edward Cullen, then Valentino's collection is equally aimed at young girls - with the legs to pull off shorter-than-short hemlines.

In-caged: Valentino's Fall-Winter 2010-2011 Haute Couture fashion collection was held in Paris yesterday. It appears the label is keen on attracting a younger set of clientele - made all the more obvious by the fashionable crowd seen in the front row.

Claire Danes, Jessica Alba and Natalia Vodionova are to name but a few of the sinewy, glamorous set attending the show. One wonders how queen of statement dress Elizabeth Hurley, who was a vision in purple, would pull off Valentino's babydoll cut but with sophisticated evening gowns, there is surely something for everybody.
