Valentino represents the quintessence of Italian fashion which he has led for a quarter-century. His is the opulence of the Roman palazzo as reflected in beautifully crafted clothes, rich beading, beautifully shaped Italian silks and taffetas. Dividing his time between art-filled town houses in Rome, London, Paris, and New York, a cozy chalet in Gstaad, and a sleek ocean-going yacht, Valentino is the hero of the fashion magazines and the favorite designer of the rich and famous. His devoted clients, who include Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Sharon Stone wear his haute couture gowns with style and glamour, and the image of these divas enrobed in his creations has assured the success of his ready-to-wear collections, snapped up the world over by women looking for a touch of luxury and sophistication. Captions translated into English by Saron Hughes.
