Over the last year, we have been trying to get our hands on as many fantastic Valentino pieces as possible, in advance of his retirement. Well, last week, the maestro gave his final Haute Couture show and the emotions ran high in Paris.

We will continue to list more and more Valentino pieces, but here is an early 1980s strapless cocktail dress in a chic color block combo on pink/peach pleated silk with a high slit skirt. Sexy, but not vulgar...a hallmark of Valentino. The sculptural pleated bodice is incredibly flattering and the unusual peachy-pink hue is complimentary on all skin shades.
