Today Somerset House opened its Winter biggy, one for ladies and cross-dressers, Valentino: Master of Couture, a celebration of the life and work of a master of haute couture, now retired. His models may have been stick thin, but he designed clothes for more shapely ladies such as Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly and Gwyneth Paltrow. 130 of his gowns are on display for the first time in the UK and visitors view them from a catwalk created for the show (CLICK). Admission costs £12.50 for adults, £9 for silver surfers. Related events are already sold out. CLICK for a BBC video.
