Valentino is unique for the photographers he chose (among who you find Meisel, Newton, Testino and so on).
They are all different from one another and Valentino has been able to find a file rouge without being afraid to try the unexpected.
He’s outstanding for the models he had: real idols.
Iman, Veruska, Linda Evangelista, Naomi, Claudia Chiffer are just some of the great models who represented the designer’s elegance.
Valentino created dresses for women. And the range goes from Jakie to queens, socialites and actress such as Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway.
