Valentino: Master of Couture Exhibit | Video

Watch: Inside Valentino's Master of Couture Exhibit

"For me it was very important to give the essence of femininity, the essence of glamour, and the essence of haute couture," said Valentino of his legendary body of work. "It's like a sculpture that is done in the body of the lady."

In a just released short film, the designer shows off some of the "sculptures" that are on display at London's Somerset House as part of the exhibit Valentino: Master of Couture. Mannequins dressed in some of the designer's most iconic dresses are arranged on either side of a long, wide runway. "It's quite amusing for people to go and do the runway themselves and to watch the clothes seated and being spectators."

Some of the dresses in the show date back to his first collections in the '60s, and some are seriously famous: Pieces worn by Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are featured, and so is the dress Julia Roberts wore when she won the Oscar for Erin Brockovich in 2001.

"I have been so lucky in my career," Valentino said of how important his clothing has been. "I don't know if I deserve it or not, but I have been very very lucky." Get an inside glimpse at the exhibit, which runs through Mar. 3, 2013, in the video below.
