"...Valentino is a master of elegance and opulence...the Italian designer made his mark early on creating luxurious gowns with intricate detailing and tastefully body-conscious silhouettes...Valentino has long been popular among European royalty, American socialites, and celebrities. While his new creations get a great deal of attention—and requests, especially around red-carpet time—many also collect his vintage dresses, like the black gown with white piping Julia Roberts wore to accept her Oscar in 2001...The Look (is) Jet set. Distinctively sexy and beautiful. You can never be too rich or too thin...Valentino has been popular with famous, well-dressed women for more than four decades, including Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Watts, Claire Danes, Gwen Stefani, Lindsay Lohan, and Gwenyth Paltrow...."
