“For me it was very important to give the essence of femininity, the essence of glamour, and the essence of haute couture. It’s like a sculpture that is done in the body of the lady.” -Valentino
If you happen to be in London for the Holidays, make sure you check out “Valentino: Master of Couture” – a magical exhibit celebrating the Italian designer’s life and work, showcasing 130 haute couture designs worn by style icons Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Gwyneth Paltrow. The showcase includes photographs from Valentino’s archive, which gives it a more personal dimension.
The exhibition is open now through Mar. 3, 2013 at Somerset House in London, England.
