Definitely seen this dress before! Not going to sit here and lie to you, I love me a bit of bridal catwalk, and Oscar de le Renta is my first port of call for that kind of entertainment. Looks are imprinted in my mind, perhaps more than they should be for a ‘non-engaged’. Anyway, casually checking out the Couture runway pics this week and I find my fave Oscar look (I say fave, I mean top five because favourites are difficult in this arena) from way back in spring 08, walking down Giambattista Valli! The cape, the head band, the swooshy skirt, even the waist. It’s pretty much the bridal gown’s red twin.

All this being said, I do love a red floor-length cape. Overall, I liked the Valli Couture FW11 show, too. I’m a little bit bored of designers shoving red, white & black at us every A/W, but in this instance it works particularly well with my tastes.
