Do you know which pair of designers have a vacation home with an 18k gold guest room? How about who boards a $60 million yacht when he needs to take a break his ten other homes around the world? Or whose NYC townhouse used to house twelve separate apartments? Find out all this and more in our ultimate guide to the over-the-top real estate of our favorite fashion designers…the only thing that remains to be asked now is “When can we move in?”
It was confirmed on Thursday that Valentino was bought by the royal family of Qatar. Valentino Garavani himself, business partner Giancarlo Giammetti, and CEO Stefano Sassi were pleased with the sale, and had a lot of nice things to say about the situation. But Giammetti had nothing pleasant to say about previous owners Permira Funds.
Earlier this week, there was some confusion as to whether or not Valentino had been purchased by the royal family of Qatar. Now it’s been confirmed.
Chloë Sevigny has been a fashion It girl for quite literally decades, but she still can’t get something so simple as a Valentino dress for a routine red carpet appearance. Is there no justice in the world?
WWD reports that a sale of the luxury brand from private equity group Permira to an unnamed “single party…could be just weeks away,” however other news outlets are telling a different story.
One of fashion’s most iconic designers is creating costumes for the New York City Ballet‘s Fall Gala in September, and we’ve got all the deets.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means the dog days of summer are almost upon us! Let’s ring in the season with some very fashionable pooches.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest scent to land on our desk: Valentino Valentina.
Rooney Mara is still on her world subjugation tour — erm, we mean, promoting The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo — so yesterday she stopped to let the good people of Italy know just how she would prefer them to worship her. And she did it in perhaps the girliest dress we’ve seen her wear yet: a classic Valentino red.
This was the week Karlie Kloss spoke about her Vogue Italia photos and Lindsay Lohan‘s Playboy spread leaked. This was also the week we got a double dose of Chloë Sevigny, attended some fancy parties, and saw the unveiling of the Pirelli calendar.
Valentino is having quite the week, and we’re happy to be along for the ride. On Monday we attended a press conference at MoMA to get the details on the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, and last night we feted the project with the designer and his fancy friends.
Today is the day the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum opens its doors!

It’s always somewhat uncomfortable to be a decidedly non famous person milling about on a pre-show runway, waiting for someone actually famous to show up. It was even more awkward at Diane von Furstenberg‘s Spring show Sunday afternoon, when we found ourselves milling about in front of what turned out to be Valentino Garavini‘s front row seat.
Last night, there were many a Fashion Week party. While we hung out at Prabal Gurung‘s Meatpacking shindig, others saw Odd Future perform at Alexander Wang‘s or went celeb spotting at the Purple party at Le Bain. But it was the Carine Roitfeld Barneys fete that has everyone talking. It all comes down to one word and one word only: KARAOKE.
Keira Knightley is doing some really wonderful things at the Venice Film Festival. In promotion of her film A Dangerous Method, she has worn two looks we really love.
It’s been a long time coming, but one of our far-fetched fashion dreams looks like it might actually come true. Because one of the world’s most legendary designers — one of the few we’d actually be comfortable calling an artist — is exploring the option of having his or her life turned into a highly produced Broadway show. Can you guess who it is? You can’t? Click and all shall be revealed!
This week Kate Middleton‘s $400,000 wedding dress went on display, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his plans for Macy’s, and Harper Beckham made her Twitter (and Facebook!) debut. Also, Valentino had some things to say about Christian Louboutin and Summer’s Eve proved it really is the worst.
In the long, painful saga that is Christian Louboutin‘s trademark infringement lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent, much has been said of the fact that cobblers had been making red soles centuries before Loubs started featuring them in the 1990s. But Valentino Garavani, the Italian couturier perhaps best known by his first name, used them as recently as the 80s — and no one really cared much then.
