Valentino has definitely influenced my wardrobe. http://observer.com/2013/01/meet-audrey-gelman-shes-like-marnie-only-successful/
Valentino is the original Italian Dandy - he has such style and elegance in his dress and lifestyle - however you always feel that he has a sense of humour and does not take himself too seriously.
