In Pictures: Riviera Romance from Giambattista Valli at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week

In a week of spectacular shows, Giambattista Valli at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week has been hailed as one of the best.

The runway harked back to the thirties and forties, eras interwoven seamlessly with the sixties and seventies in an ode to travel, freedom and adventure.

Old Hollywood would approve. Big shades, headscarves and ball gowns were busy screaming drama while the models played it cool. Florals, stripes and sequins all got their turn in the spotlight. "It's always a love story", the designer said backstage.

We might be in love.
