Happy birthday to Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani, better known as Valentino. Today marks the iconic designer’s 84th birthday. Since emerging on the fashion scene back in the early ‘60s, Valentino has made his mark on the industry in a major way.
Known as the master of haute couture, the Italian visionary’s impressive career included dressing almost every A-lister and socialite in Hollywood. Although he retired in 2008 after presenting his last haute couture show in Paris, the brand lives on with countless celebs still gracing red carpet events in Valentino designs. In his over 45 years in business, Valentino’s dressed everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Sophia Loren, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, and Cate Blanchett—just to name a few.
