Valentino – Couture Spring 2008 – A Celebration
When Valentino Garavani created his final collection for his luxury house, it was a fitting conclusion to 45 sensational years.
Bright femininity with old-school glamour – the collection paid tribute to the ‘Valentino’ way. Sharp little luncheon suits in sorbet shades; chic cocktail dresses; striking evening gowns; lace; flower prints; and sweet satin bows – it was elegant fashion loveliness with timeless beauty.
After this collection, Alessandra Facchinetti, the ex-Gucci designer took the reins of Valentino. Lasting just two seasons, she was succeeded by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli in January 2009.

2>> To her The Tourist world premiere in New York, Angelina Jolie looked a picture of perfection in an Atelier Versace gown. The long ivory gown is elegant and sophisticated yet irrevocably sexy with its thigh-high slit and deep V neckline.
3>> While in Sydney to promote Love & Other Drugs, Anne Hathaway chose a Christopher Kane dress from his Resort 2011 collection. Nipped in at the waist, this mini dress is flattering yet fun with such an eye-catching beautiful print.
