Valentino Presents Master of Couture Exhibition in London

By Paul Joseph

An exhibition by the iconic Italian fashion brand Valentino is currently taking place at London’s Somerset House.

Called "Valentino: Master of Couture", the exhibition features mannequins clad in some of the designer’s most famous dresses lined up on either side of a long corridor, lending the impression of a catwalk runway.

Some of the dresses in the show date back to Valentino’s first collections in the 1960s, including pieces worn by Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Another notable inclusion is the dress worn by Julia Roberts when she won an Oscar for her role in the movie “Erin Brockovich” in 2001.

The exhibition runs until March 2013.
