This weekend we got around to seeing the Valentino Exhibition at Brisbane GoMA. We got the free guided tour which was interesting, but unfortunately our guide was a little hard to understand with the large Sunday crowd all around. Although I didn't love all the dresses (there is no accounting for taste, after all), the vast majority of the gowns were magnificent and beautifully crafted, and absolute joy to see up-close and personal. Some of the famous gowns featured were: the dress Jackie Kennedy wore to wed Aristotle Onassis, Julia Roberts' 2001 Oscars gown (vintage from the early 90s) and the beautiful yellow with maroon belt gown worn by Cate Blanchett when she won the Oscar for The Aviator. Definitely a must-see exhibition!
