From Anna Magnani’s obsession with petites robes noires to the “goddess-style” dresses with drapes favoured by Ingrid Bergman. From the whims of Lana Turner and Kim Novak to  the maniacal attention to detail endlessly sought after by Audrey Hepburn who could spend whole afternoons haggling over the length of a sleeve. Between the Fifties and the decade that followed, Fernanda Gattinoni created the look of the best-loved stars of the “Hollywood on the Tiber” era, bestowing them with an air of glamour and distinction based on the conviction that the secret of true elegance is embodied in just one concept: minimalism.
