July 2007 Rome - Valentino 45 Years Anniversary

Eddie Redmayne attended the celebrations with Tara Hacking (his girlfriend at the time).

I found them in a video about the opening of the exhibition ‘Valentino a Roma: 45 Years of 
Style’ at the Ara Pacis in Rome on Friday 6th July 2007. They had a chat with Claire Danes 
and Hugh Dancy ... With around 300 garments and rare archive material, the exhibition was 
a retrospective that celebrated Valentino’s 45 years of creativity.

Let's play spot them in the red carpet video here

Mayor Walter Veltroni gave his full support to Valentino's celebrations, permitting the
use of historic venues such as the Santo Spirito in Sassia, founded in 727 as a refuge
centre for pilgrims to the nearby tomb of the apostle Peter, and the Galleria Borghese.
Veltroni, who in fashion parlance is planning a comeback for the Eternal City, is hoping
that the glamour of the weekend will rub off. A retrospective exhibition of Valentino's
designs, which opened at the Ara Pacis museum in Rome on Friday, served to illustrate
the timelessness of his designs: almost all of the dresses would work on a red carpet
today. The retrospective, featuring the best gowns from almost half a century, was a
hard act to follow, but the presentation of Valentino's latest collection on Saturday
provided yet more examples of the designer's best tricks: the precise nip of a waisted
jacket, the opulence of a dress rustling with jet beads and trimmed with ostrich feathers.
A gala ball in the Galleria Borghese followed, beginning with a ballgown-clad
passeggiata beneath the Caravaggios, and culminating in a dinner for 1,000 guests.
