Valentino: Master of Couture opens at Somerset House tomorrow (29 November), and we've got images from the press preview to show you.
Following on from the Tim Walker fashion photography exhibition at the same venue, comes this ode to the Italian master of haute couture, a red carpet favourite who created designs for Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Gwyneth Paltrow.
