The New Vionnet

This is the first collection for the label under new designer Rodolfo Paglialunga. He is the third designer in two years, after Sophia Kokosalaki and Marc Audibet. Paglialunga created a resort collection that was dramatic and sensual with a hint of humor. It's definitely one of my favorites for resort.

This is such a sensual dress! Its the perfect shade of red and the fabric falls so beautifully in the back. Radical warriorwoman jewelry too...

"Yeah, I farted in a Vionnet dress, JEALOUS? It's awesome even though it has a crazy figure skater bodice and an even crazier pirate wench bottom and I'm rockin' it with ONE LEG!"

This is kinda weird and funky, right? I love the playful print on the sheer black fabric. Funnily seductive? Maybe.

This is so fun! It's kind of formal at the top and bird-like at the bottom! I know the whole point of this is to be kind of a "naked dress", which I'm usually all for, but for some reason I want to see this layered over black tights and a leather bra. So.wicked.

ABSOLUTELY.FLAWLESS.

Crazy Botticelli Babe gown. WITH A HOOD! love love love.

these are some stunning looks - the second is dead on, in the figure skater/pirate wench description, haha, but yes it totally works. stunning! and the naked dress would look all kinds of awesome with black tights and a leather bra. layering ftw.

The model is giving me a "Molly Ringwald as a model" vibe, and I like it! (especially in the pink dress, of course)
