Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani - or better known as Valentino - is a stellar example of classic consistent style. The Italian fashion designer, born May 11, 1932, is a different breed of "style transformation."

For a fashion icon who is known for a signature look - exquisitely tailored suit, coiffed hair, and bronze skin - it was a challenge to find images that displayed an evolution or change in style, as Valentino has always been consistently classic, put together, chic, and professional.
