White Fairy Tale Love Ball

Following the excitement and drama of Couture Week in Paris, the fashionable crowd headed to designer Valentino Garavani's 17th century estate for The White Fairy Tale Love Ball. The Ball, hosted by supermodel Natalia Vodianova and Valentino raises money for Vodianova's charity Naked Heart Foundation which provides safe playgrounds for underprivileged children in Russia.

Guests were treated to a fashion show which featured 45 custom-designed dresses from the wold's top international designers including Chanel, Burberry and Yves Saint Laurent. They also spent time in Valentino's perfectly manicured gardens and viewed the current installation of Valentino dresses from a 1990 collection in the Valentino Archives museum.

Many guests wore Valentino and stuck to the white and silver dress code. In keeping with tradition, the host Vodianova wore a custom red design, this year she chose a red riding hood inspired gown by Valentino.

Check out some of the beautiful images at the Ball captured by Tommy Ton:
