2017 Best Eveningwear


Unlike the fable told about bridesmaids’ gowns, a piece from Valentino can actually be worn again, and not just to another black-tie event. The current line of classic silhouettes and punchy colors is on-trend without being trendy, so the garments won’t quickly look dated. The designs can also be taken from night to day with toned-down accessories and a more-casual shoe, so that printed crՎpe de Chine dress that made you feel like Cinderella at the fundraising gala doesn’t need a glass slipper to stun again.
