According to a report in WWD, London's Somerset House is hosting a Valentino exhibit in November. Called Valentino: Master of Couture, the exhibit will showcase more than 130 creations by the Italian designer, spanning his 50-year career.
All the Valentino haute couture faves will be there, including Jackie O's wedding dress from the 1968 White Collection and Julia Roberts' vintage black-and-white gown from the from the 2001 Academy Awards.
"Each of these designs has a beautiful story," Valentino told British Vogue. "The atelier crafted each so diligently by hand, taking hours, sometimes days to complete. The details are incredibly intricate. Though outside the runway shows and events, the dresses have rarely been seen. To be able to showcase these designs at Somerset House, where they can be seen in great detail by the public, is very unique."
The exhibit is set to run from November 29th to March 3rd. If you're lucky enough to be in London during those three months, will you check it out? Also, what are some of your love-it-so-much-I-could-die Valentino designs? Share in the comments below!
