Valentino Up Late...

Playsuit: Finders Keepers
Clutch: Olga Berg
Wedges: GoJane
Belt: Vintage
Bracelet: Ebay

These are just a few quick photos I took on Friday night before meeting up with my girls to go and see the “Valentino, Retrospective: Past/Present/Future” Exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art. Every Friday night, they open up the exhibition late and get the bar going and a DJ.

I had my fair share of champagne and by the time we reached the end of the exhibition we were holding back on fits of giggling schoolgirl excitement… but I got to see so many jaw-dropping, awe-inspiringly beautiful creations, it was a wonderful evening!I have to say, Valentino makes me wish I was living in the 60’s! The fashion from that era was so fabulous and so unreserved, all about colour and volume!

I ended up changing my bag to a plain black clutch after seeing these photos and realising they didn’t match quite as well as I had hoped… but I decided to post the photos anyway! Sorry for the quality of the photos, I was running late (luckily my friend was running later) and it was already fairly dark when I took these! (And hence the idential poses in every photo)

I would have loved to take photos of every single dress but it was strictly prohibited! So you should check out photos of some of the amazing couture that was displayed at the exhibition here on the Queensland Art Gallery Exhibition. Below is a sneak peek... Enjoy!
