I can't think of another word that perfectly sums up the newest Valentino campaign. Naturally, the clothes are gorgeous, because hello, Valentino. But to me, the best part of the collection are the strappy starfish sandals. They're shoes fit for a mermaid (if they had feet a la Ariel.)
The first photo in this post is hands down my favorite because it reminds me of one of my favorite paintings, Ophelia by John Everett Millais. There's just something hauntingly beautiful about it. The styling and photography of the series as a whole reminds me of the nymphs from Greek mythologies-- forest nymphs hiding in the trees, sea nymphs resting by the shore.
Ps. Not to be a super cheeseball but thanks for all the well wishes on my last post! I'm still sick as a dog, but the comments and suggestions cheered me up :)
