This red Valentino floor length silk gown is best described using the words expressed by the Italian designer himself: 'red has guts…deep, strong, dramatic'. Mr. Garavani loves a bit of red - as do we when we're looking to stop traffic at an evening event. Featuring a jewel neckline, elegantly draped three-quarter length sleeves and a cape back, this long dress is the perfect choice. Finished with a smooth silk-blend lining, we're wearing our Valentino gown with black suede sandals and a slick of red lipstick (this is for you Mr. Valentino) for a powerful gala ensemble.

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns' Edit of Valentino emanates the romantic and timeless elegance of the world-renowned fashion designer's Ready-to-Wear and Resort collections. Crowned as ‘The Sheik of Chic’, Valentino Garavani displayed an early interest in fashion and relocated to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Upon return to Rome, Valentino set up his own label and debuted his first couture collection in 1962 which garnered attention from the likes of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn. Adored by notable socialists, aristocrats and celebrities, the Italian mastermind spent the following decades perfecting his craft and becoming a true innovator of the feminine form, for which he was awarded a French Legion of Honor medal in 2006. Since retiring from the iconic fashion house, the time-honoured craftsmanship and artisan techniques discovered by Valentino live on through the current creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.
