Infectious pink

Knees went a little weak as soon as I clicked onto the forty-second look from the Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 couture collection.

Could it possibly be any more beautiful? Without a doubt this is my favourite look from the shows so far. The red silk shirt with white piping looks like it ought to have a matching pair of shorts to go with it (pajama dressing sorted) but instead attached is a massive, larger-than-life, pink frilly skirt. The gradient in colour is brilliant and looks as if someone dipped the model into a bucket of bleach, slowly letting the colour seep out of the fabric. The retro sunglasses and floppy white scarf tied up in the model's hair zaps every bit of traditional glamour out of the look. It couldn't be more perfect.
