PARIS: The Valentino runway always offers some of the best VIP sightings in the city of light. Case in point: Lebanese fashion stars Jessica Kahawaty and Lana El-Sahely who were spotted sitting front row to take in the Italian label’s fall 2020 offering.
From leather bodices to sheer frilly dresses, the luxury fashion house showcased a series of all-black looks in Paris on Sunday as fashion houses pressed on with their shows in spite of the coronavirus outbreak that has kept some attendees away.
At Valentino, another highlight in the calendar, models strutted the runway in a series of black outfits, some decked out in sequins, others in more delicate lace designs.
The somber looks were offset by splashes of fiery red here and there — from a ruffled clutch bag to long gloves — while designer Pierpaolo Piccioli ended the show with airier tones, including some sparkly mesh gowns.
