The Ralph And Russo haute couture show is one of the shows that is always very highly anticipated. As always, the pieces that hit the runway were dreamy, romantic, light yet reflected so many hours of detail work. This collection celebrates a summer full of powdery, happy colors. I loved the huge ruffles on many of the dresses, contrasted with slimmer silhouettes and the huge of lighter fabrics. The use of metallic fabrics and shiny beads added glamour to the show.
A little bit of feathers on some of the pieces an airy feel to the show, reminding us that statement couture dresses should be light and easy to wear. The bridal dress, modeled by Alessandra Ambrosio, made a strong entrance, wearing a floral-beaded dress with an incredible cape, full of handwoven ruffles.
