Is bling fashion a thing of the past, or just going through a blip? So we wondered, as designs with opulent embroidery, washed-out hues and subtle jewel detailing sashayed down the runways. 

Christophe Josse, Dominique Sirop and Valentino all showcaded pared-down, demure designs, and even the usually flamboyant Elie Saab kept things low-key. We love the use of beads and subtle gems on this powder blue Saab dress inspired by the Sistine Chapel, of all things!
