Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s conscious uncoupling last season, all eyes have been on them as they go their separate ways. With successful ready-to-wear and couture collections already under his belt as a solo designer at Valentino, Piccioli has nothing to prove, but the industry is still keeping a close eye on him. Scroll down for the must-know highlights from the just-wrapped show.

Front-Row Flair

Emily Ratajkowski and Kate Mara were amongst the sea of pretty faces in beautiful Valentino dresses that sat front row.

Pastel and Punk

An army of models in dreamy midi and floor-length dresses in a pastel color palette walked along the beautiful walls of the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild.

Braids Are Back

In true Valentino style, braids came back for the FW17 season, but they were significantly simpler than those seen at the SS17 show. Instead of big, elaborate, romantic plaits, it was simply a case of locks being worn loose with a touch of natural texture and one thin, tightly plaited braid framing the face to add a beautiful, boho touch.

Carmine Charms

The lineup of models, walking to the touching sounds of Oscar-winning movie Moonlight, all had one thing in common: a tight carmine-red necklace reminiscent of a talisman or lucky charm.
