“Madame Valentina”, Life Magazine 1952

Valentina’s gothic take on American couture and Hollywood glamour is often washed out by the bright lights of Paris. Her designs were dark, mysterious, and full of feminine ease, a stark contrast to the debutante designs and regal gowns of 1950’s Couturiers and decades ahead of her time. An exhibition on her work, Valentina: American Couture and the Cult of Celebrity, is currently on view at The Museum of The City Of New York until May 17th.
