the fall 2014 couture collections have been taking place in paris this week and from the look of things it’s a black and white ball.

stripes, full-skirts, sunglasses and chic headscarfs at giambattista valli….floor-sweeping coats, trousers, flowers, and ball gowns at dior….wrap dresses, appliqué’s, capes and the chicest gladiators ever at valentino…and all of it is in black and white!

couture is all about luxury, detail and beauty, and this season it’s looking like a black and white ball!
