Red has guts…. deep, strong, dramatic. A geranium red. A Goya red…
Women usually prefer to wear black at events because it makes them feel safe. However, if there’s one woman wearing red, she will inevitably be the eyecatcher of the evening. It’s as though the room is suddenly illuminated- simply perfect for a grand entrance.-Valentino
Valentino’s red is a mixture of 100% magenta, 100% yellow and 10% black on the CMYK color model. I remember when I was a kid and my parents owned a photo studio and development store (at the same time that they owned the shoe store!), and they were developing photos and balancing the colors, always trying to bring out the perfect Arizona red or ocean blue from people’s vacation photos. That perfect Valentino red is hard to find in a lipstick sometimes.
How breathtakingly gorgeous is this mannequin?
In honor of Valentino Red or as those lovely Italians might call it, rosso Valentino, I thought I’d share a couple favorites from Saks’ new arrivals.
The Valentino Couture Bow Slingbacks are $695.
The Valentino Side Bow Peep-Toe Pumps are $695.
