More than any other designer, Valentino has loved and understood those who he has dressed. His legacy of subtle sensuality incarnates the intellect of Elizabeth Taylor, a beauty that is bold and relentless, or that transforms Jackie Kennedy to her second incarnation as Jackie O. The unforgettable Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia perpetuate the persona of the Valentino woman, at the same time strong yet fragile, refusing to be objectified while delighting in pleasure. Donning a dress with a buttoned collar, strict in appearance, yet contradictory with a soft print that plays with the transparency of embroidery or lace. As she walks through the doors of Département Féminin she is the embodiment of desire and emotion.
