Unfortunately, he died in 2010, but his legacy was not forgotten. Sarah Burton, his right hand, took over his place and continues to produce beautiful French couture mixed with British tailored pieces. The brand is also very known for being one of the favorites of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
The name of the label came from their mother's maiden name. Oddly enough, they have found inspiration for their dresses in Japanese horror films, but that has not stopped many Hollywood celebrities like Natalie Portman, Kirsten Dunst, Keira Knightley, Dakota and Elle Fanning and Cate Blanchett –among others– from wearing them.
Diane von Furstenberg
But now, wrapdresses are not the only pieces that Diane von Furstenberg designs. Her collections also include chic suits, fluid blouses, accessories, swimmer and luggage. Celebrities like Kate Beckinsale and Gwyneth Paltrow are just two of the many that have been wearing her designs. She got elected as the president of CFDA in 2006.
All his collections are known for being glamorous, well tailored and with dramatic details. Now he is a favorite whenever there is a red carpet in Hollywood. Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce and Natalie Portman consider him a favorite.
The name of the brand was even lent for the novel and movie "The Devil Wears Prada". Though the brand has been present since 1913, the first ready-to-wear collection launched in 1989.
And even though he doesn't speak English, he is a favorite among Hollywood celebrities. Some of those celebrities are Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Cate Blanchett, Jodie Foster and Penelope Cruz.
Dolce & Gabbana
Some of the celebrities that like to wear Dolce & Gabbana's designs the most –especially for red carpet events– are Madonna, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lopez, and Kirsten Dunst. Their dresses are known for always being super stylish and glamorous.
He launched his first collection in 1986 and then his second one, Marc by Marc Jacobs in 2001. But he is not only the head of the label, but he is the creative director of Louis Vuitton as well.
Gianni died in 1997 and never saw the great success of Donatella, but still, the world has. If Versace is known for just one dress among all, it would be the one Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammys in 2000.
Now –after Phoebe Philo became the creative director in 2008– the brand has gotten the most recognition that is possible. Tilda Swinton and Jennifer Aniston are just two of the many celebrities that wear the brand. And it would be an understatement to say that the Céline Luggage tote has caused madness for every fashion-conscious girl all over the world .
