"Think Valentino, think luxury and elegance. Fashion’s most beloved upholder of refined decadence is the star in luxurious limited-edition book from TASCHEN that includes drawings, magazine shoots, advertisements, portraits of Valentino, and documentary photographs."— Yellow Magazine, Dallas, United States
"This silk screen behemoth is a striking homage to the life and career of Valentino Garavani- and the color red of course."— Gotham Magazine, New York, United States
"Diese luxuriöse Publikation in limitierter Auflage würdigt die ungewöhnliche Karriere Valentinos mit einer umfangreichen Auswahl an Bildern aus den Archiven des Couturiers."— Tango, Hamburg, Germany
"738 pages of drawings, magazine shoots, advertisements, portraits, and documentary photographs make up the weighty tome, covered in the most perfect shade of yes, Valentino red. For $ 1,200, the book costs about as much as a bag by the house, but who can argue with a piece of history?"—, Cleveland, United States
"Just like the house of Valentino, this book oozes luxury and glamour, but you don't have to know anything about fashion in order to be able to enjoy this coffee table tomb about the grand designer's life and career...You will drool over the photos documenting the style of every decade from the 60s to the 2000s, shot by photographers like Helmut Newton that capture the feel and general essence of the parties and craziness that surround those living the 'good life."— Color Magazine, Vancouver, Canada
"Realität gewordene Fantasien voller Anmut, Eleganz und subtiler Erotik dokumentiert die Monographie Valentino ... Abgerundet wird die Retrospektive opulenter Bilder mit introspektiven Statements, die große Gelassenheit und Understatement erahnen lassen. Very Valentino!"— Der Standard, Wien, Austria
"Valentino - das empfehlenswerte Buch über einen Modemacher, der sich allzeit treu blieb, ohne jemals zu erstarren."— Kunstzeitung, Regensburg, Germany
"Seine Mode spricht für sich. Und die kann man ausgiebig in dieser luxuriösen und gebundenen Prachtausgabe des TASCHEN-Verlags bewundern. Schönheitsideale zum Angreifen."—, Berlin, Germany
"You don't need to mention his last name, there's no point. This is the man who has been designing glamorous gowns since 1959, dressing the gorgeous in camera bulb flashing red carpet apparel. In this beautiful and glossy book, Valentino's world comes to life with myriad images and magazine shoots plus text from talents like Suzy Menkes, Ingrid Sischy and Anna Wintour. All the above help celebrate the artistic genius of one of the most accomplished and successful couturiers of this century. Ten highly recommends. Out now. Taschen."— Ten Magazine, London, United Kingdom
"For fashionistas everywhere."— Style, The Sunday Times, London, United Kingdom
