Valentino, the ladylike, very-nearly-staid fashion house best known for its sleek tailoring and red-carpet gowns, is taking a sexy turn this fall with a new advertising campaign shot by David Sims. The new ads feature an intimate mix of nude and clothed models—Freja Beha, Monika Jagaciak, and Tati Cotlar—shot at Valentino headquarters at the Place Vendome in Paris. They bow in the July issue of Italian Vogue.
