Keira Knightley’s Tiered Valentino Gown Is Among Fashion’s Greatest – There are totally acceptable celebrity fashion moments, and then there are the styles that you attempt hard to replicate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ editors of Fashionista examine their greatest ensembles of all time.
Over the course of Valentino’s existence, one thing has remained constant: the Italian fashion house’s exceptional gowns. It is no surprise that so many celebrities continue to choose the brand for important occasions, such as red carpet premieres, award ceremonies, and magazine covers. Valentino sells clothing that excite, stir the imagination, and, perhaps most importantly, endure.
This holds true for almost every era, whether it is the heyday of Valentino Garavani, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, or Piccioli’s celebrated solo career. And since this home is so steeped in history, you will recognize remnants of the past in its most recent acquisitions.
Look at this gown Keira Knightley wore in 2008 to the Orange British Academy Film Awards; it’s from Garavani’s final haute couture collection for the brand he founded, but the airy tiers, uniform embellishments, and contrast between the fitted strapless bodice and petal-like layers on the skirt have all been reinterpreted and pushed even further by the designers that have succeeded the founder. Plus, it seems current: This outfit could walk the red carpet in 2022 and still be one of the night’s audience favorites.
