There is opulence, and then there is a Valentino haute couture collection. The luxury Italian home this week was teeming in Beijing with the opening of the flagship store Sanlitun, coinciding with a runway filled with extravagant gowns worthy of your next holiday party, ornamented helmets for jewelry and taffeta bows the size of & # 39; a little kid. The extreme extravagance extended to the make-up, courtesy of the artist Pat McGrath, with a strange metal skin and Valentino's signature red worn as lipstick. "Dream Dream is the chosen title for the Beijing event, which unfolds across different actions, with the goal of portraying the inclusive layers of Valentino today," the brand said in a press release. "Symbols, colors and decorations blend into each other as the Italian Renaissance spirit meets the luxury of Chinese splendor."
