Probably very off-topic here on Style Studies, but I would be lying if I said Kurt Cobain didn't have a big influence on my teenage years (and no, I wasn't a Christiane F.).
I am pretty sure ninety percent of teenagers out there will say they love Nirvana, but having read his biography and watched several interviews with him like the ones below, I still find him inspirational.
The fact that Nirvana was one of the most popular bands of the decade and Cobain still walked around in Converse shoes and a T-shirt, the fact that his answers to interview questions weren't controlled by a bazillion PR people; there is just something genuinely authentic and rebellious about Cobain and for that, I will forever idolise him.

Continuing on his path of creating such an eyeful of intricacies and beauty that one can't fully grasp them on first sight, Riccardo Tisci created an alteration of his Spring 2011 collection, but toned down the neon and amped up the details for a romantic and ethereal look.

So happy to see Valli have a slot in the couture calendar; after all his RTW work does have a couture feel and look to it.
For his first appearance in the Haute Couture circuit, Giambattista stuck to his signatures of feathers, empire waists, crystal embroidery and dramatic gowns, but then again, Haute Couture isn't about being super-trendy and experimental (although the latter can sometimes be true), but rather about the technique and craftsmanship of each piece.
In which case Giambattista Valli never fails.
