That's one of the key messages of "Valentino: Themes and Variations," an exhibition that opens here today and runs until Sept. 21 at Les Arts Decoratifs. The exhibit features 225 high-fashion creations by the Roman couturier, who hung up his scissors last January. Claudia Schiffer, Charlotte Casiraghi, Georgina Brandolini, Natalia Vodianova and Alessandra Facchinetti are among those expected at the opening this evening.
