One of my favourite colours is red. I love the way even a splash of red can bring an outfit to life. If any designer has made red his trademark, it's Valentino.

Entering the international fashion scene in 1962, Valentino soon established himself as one of the major players in the fashion industry, his distinct designs dressing some of the most stylish women in history. Retiring in 2008, Valentino may be no longer be designing, but he will not be forgotten.
