Eva and Liz go head-to-head on the red carpet in Venice
Eva Herzigova and Liz Hurley went to head-to-head on the red carpet in Venice last night at the world premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor in Venice.
With all-out glamour the order of the day, a host of Hollywood stars had turned out for the fashionable event, including Diane Kruger, Claire Danes and Charlize Theron but it was Eva and Liz who stole the limelight in two very revealing gowns.
The film itself is an intimate look at the life of Valentino, who retired from the world of couture earlier this year.
Fittingly many of his guests at the premiere and, later, at an exclusive after-party at the Guggenheim Museum, were wearing Valentino. However, when asked who wore his designs the best, Valentino saved his praise for the one star not in attendance: Julia Roberts.
‘I have to be very sincere, the person that makes me feel very happy, also because [she] chose vintage, was Julia Roberts, when she got the Academy Award,’ he admitted. ‘I was very excited to see her when she appeared with my dress. It’s very important for stars to like your clothes.’
