Valentino Gap Line Too Stylish for Us Uncouth Americans

Valentino Gap collection cropped jacketWhat up, Valentino? You think your fancy designs are too good, too stylish for us Americans? You think we're a bunch of shabby dressers not worthy of your new collection at Gap?

Seen any Valentino in American Gap stores? I didn't think so.

Cause we're not worthy.

What do you think of the Valentino collection for Gap? Are you worthy?
