Look to Valentino for an aesthetic that melds the seductive and the romantic. The label was founded in 1959 after the designer Valentino Garavani had completed his formal training in Paris. The label soon gained fashion fame with a celebrity following, which included Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. The Valentino label is best known for its romantic and unapologetically feminine collections, embellished with lace and adorned with roses. The collection now includes stiletto pumps for an elevated look.
