Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2013: Valentino

Does anyone define fairytale elegance quite like Valentino? Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli presented a stunning show of beyond-beautiful gowns during Paris Fashion Week. Seriously, there was actual magic in the way each dress floated along the runway, thanks to the lace and embroidered detailing.

The innocence continued with side-plaits complete with satin Alice bands. Let Valentino's collection melt your heart and take a look through the gallery below:
