Valentino: Master of Couture Exhibition

If you were looking for a reason to visit London, I can give you one. Somerset House is hosting an exhibition entitled “Valentino: Master of Couture,” which will showcase over 130 pieces by storied fashion designer Valentino Garavani. Ensembles donned by Jackie O, Grace Kelly, and Julia Roberts will be among the collection, on view from November 29 – March 3, 2013. Now, we all know I love an iconic red Valentino dress, and I am sure there will be quite a few of those at the show. So, if anyone sees a deal on plane tickets, please let me know!
