Valentino Garavani, the revered Italian designer, is known for for using vibrant red in his collections. The shade, so synonymous with the creative genius, is often referred to as "Valentino red." Though Garavani retired in 2008, his successors have kept the DNA very much in tact, so much so that no runway show from the Italian house is complete without at least one show-stopping crimson dress.
As a result, celebrities are often spotted in creations from the Last Emperor. Style icons like Jackie Onassis (Garavani created her wedding dress to the Greek shipping heir), Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn were known to wear Valentino. But it's the bold red pieces that always catch our eye -- who could forget Anne Hathaway with Valentino on her arm at the 2011 Academy Awards? Here, 28 stars who shone in the designer's signature hue.
