Style Speculation: Valentino Spring 2012 Couture

Valentino Spring 2012 Couture
Potential royal models:
Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Princess Máxima, Princess Marie-Chantal, Princess Rosario
Valentino is a staple royal designer, making this one of the collections we're most likely to see on the royal runway. Just the whites alone have the Mette-Marit stamp all over them.
This collection had a bit of a shabby chic aesthetic - plenty of white with frilly accents, plus a great deal of florals with an upholstery and/or drapery flair to them. I'm all over the white, but I don't know about the flowery business.
I mean, it's going to be hard to pull this stuff off without looking like you got tangled up in your granny's tablecloth collection.

See the whole collection here.

Any royals you think could make this work?
