2. The Italian Touch: Valli is Italian, but shows his ready-to-wear and couture collections at Paris Fashion Week every season. (Psst! We're told his runway shows are typically over-the-top and fabulous.) He also designs a bridal line and a couture collection, which is a favorite among the celebrity set.
3. Vava-voom! His show-stopping pieces include high-drama dresses with serious volume in the form of ruffles, bows and ornate embellishments. His elaborate silhouettes and playful designs are adored by women of all ages.
4. Valli Girls. The designer is adored by an entourage of actresses. His celebrity fans include Jessica Biel, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Halle Berry, Brooke Shields, Lea Michele, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger, Rachel Zoe, Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Palermo and many more.
5. Mass Appeal. Just last fall, the designer expanded his reach and debuted an affordable capsule collaboration for Macy's. The contemporary line featured flirty cocktail dresses, chic day coats, tuxedo pants and embellished tees ranging from $50 to $150.
