8 of Giambattista Valli's most jaw-dropping red carpet creations

A Vogue review on Giambattista Valli's Fall 2017 haute couture collection aptly described his work as a visual representation of a designer who "makes things for the world his women live in." 

And "his women" include the likes of Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Giovanna Battaglia, Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong'o and Olivia Munn. Quite a powerful arsenal of A-listers to have under your intricately embellished belt, I must say. 

While Amal Clooney often opts for Atelier Versace on the red carpet she does love a lot of Valli for her other appearances. This was her post-wedding ceremony frock in Venice in 2014.

Another bride who slipped into a Giambattista Valli creation on her wedding day was Vogue Japan's senior fashion editor, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert. The fashion mogul had four wedding gowns and this was one of them...
