It’s fall so I’ll accept the black with black with black totally all black look of Park Shin Hye at last week’s Valentino event in Seoul. The top and skirt has streaks of color and she wisely didn’t wear black boots or black pantyhose with her mules so the skin tone below the skirt helps defray the darkness. I love her hair, make up and accessories way more, the earrings are exquisite and she also breaks up the black by modeling many of the brand’s colorful bags. I’m not sold on the recent seasons of Valentino bags, the initial clasp feels like a retread of Gucci’s recent revival and the leather bag designs are a dime a dozen with many upstart leather trendy brands offering similar looks at a fraction of the price. To pay the couture prices, bags have to hit it out of the park in getting those who can afford it to covet it. Park Shin Hye is doing great though, she’s a smart model for the brand straddling both the younger generation and the moms who watched her grow up.
