While west of the Atlantic we spent July 4, 2012 with fireworks and surges of red, white and blue, Paris Fashion Week soldiered on with the Fall/Winter 2012-13 Haute-Couture collection from Valentino, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.

The fashion house, traditionally known for its use of the color red, strayed momentarily to a quieter blue palette.  The 47 looks juxtaposed shadowy chiffon cut-outs and heavy, yet playful brocades fusing the textiles into a collection, notable for its haunting elegance rather than overt sexiness.

Among the Valentino fans playing Independence Day hooky were America’s hottest new couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as well as Olivia Palermo in a pink lace Valentino Spring 2012 dress.
