The new season's runway collections drew inspiration from the 80s, bringing back puffed shoulders, sparkly evening dresses, and an overall attitude of high glamour.
Sophisticated partygoers will certainly take their cue from the “big hair” styles that made their comeback in Valentino’s Haute Couture collection this ball season. On the other side of the spectrum, street style served up some very futuristic ideas: Boiler suits and bike shorts come to mind.
