Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chirui and Pierpaolo Piccioli celebrated 50 years of the brand this year (mazel tov!), and in honor, the Valentino Rodeo Drive flagship store in Beverly Hills threw open its doors last night for a star-studded fete that also marked the store's opening.
The celeb guests were an eclectic group that included Kim Kardashian, Rose McGowan, Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe, Ellie Kemper, Minka Kelly and a host of actresses from the CW and teen-oriented TV shows.
Style-wise, several guests opted for, well, Valentino: Kemper, McGowan and Teresa Palmer all picked red dresses from the brand, while Kim Kardashian went a different direction in a a black and white Lela Rose dress. (She luckily remained flour-free.) We also couldn't help but notice Ciara's dramatic ombre hair -- at least she paired it with a simple black dress.
Another star of the night was the Valentino clutch with its signature handle, tucked on the arm of pretty much everyone.
The fete also provided guests with a sneak peek of the 50th anniversary Valentino capsule collection, which features 50 ready-to-wear pieces inspired by Valentino Garavani’s animal prints from the sixties.
