Valentino for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala

What an absolutely stunning and inspiring way to start my day.  Reading the NYT Style Section this morning, I learned that Valentino has designed the costumes for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala.

Wanting to learn more, I found this video on  You MUST watch this.  The beauty of the video is not the images, but the sincerity of the collaboration between Valentino, the costume shop, and the director.  You MUST watch this.  I promise it will start your day off on a beautiful, perfectly pointed direction.

And a couple more stills because they were just so stunning!
