What better way to spend time in Paris than attending the afterparty for Valentino’s fall/winter 2010 show on July 7th? A grand soirée hosted by Valentino himself to celebrate the opening of the Valentino Archives was just what Paris needed to end this year’s Haute Couture ~ [make sure to check out our next column featuring exclusive coverage of the shows next week!]. Valentino’s gorgeous Château de Widevill was the setting for this sumptuous and elegant affair, aglow in bright pink and white-washed with tents sprinkled throughout the gardens and lovely grounds ~ even the bathrooms were in the most luxurious event tents this world has ever seen! In attendance were several A-listers, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, Claire Danes, Blake Lively, Hugh Dancy, Elizabeth Hurley, and Natalia Vodianova.
