Valentino…NYFW Spring 2012

by Lee Oliveira on September 16, 2011

I was thrilled to see Valentino as he entered the Lincoln Centre in New York.

Valentino and his entourage were heading to the DVF Spring 2o12 show.

“French people are charming, adorable but not extremely generous with foreigners, but they believe in what they do. I feel proud in exchange because what I did in restoration is something I did for La France.” – Valentino Garavani

Oh Lee you really did nail these shots! But I must say that after seeing his documentary I ceased to be a huge fan of his (I am now a huge fan of his former business partner).

Anyways, hope to see you around this weekend!

You captured my fashion design icon and I am so envious of that women’s outfit next to him – a head-to-toe Val gal!

I am so amazed by these pictures, my friend! He is such an icon, and is dressed to absolute perfection (and I’m so jealous you got to photograph him – you did a gorgeous job).
