The Valentino exhibition at Somerset House starts later this month and Vogue UK has brought us a preview. The retrospective will focus on his couture creations, from famous red carpet dresses to examining the design process inside his atelier.
The vintage gown worn by Julia Roberts to accept her Best Actress Oscar features, as does previously unseen imagery from Garavani’s personal archives – alongside beautiful pictures of the designer posing with muse and model, Natalie Vodianova.
The “Master of Couture” exhibition will run from November 29, 2012 until March 3, 2013; from 10pm – 6pm daily. Somersethouse.org.uk
