Valentino joins ladies in red at Natalia's Love Ball in Moscow

14 FEBRUARY 2008
Despite retiring from the fashion business last month Valentino continues to be surrounded by some of the world's most beautiful women. Russian belle Natalia Vodianova, Czech catwalk queen Eva Herzigova and Torn singer Natalie Imbruglia - all wearing his favourite shade of lipstick red - joined the Italian designer at the Love Ball in Moscow on Wednesday.

Philanthropic beauty Natalia, who modelled for his swansong couture show in Paris, had invited the couturier to the glamorous St Valentine's event in his honour. The ball, in aid of her children's charity the Naked Heart Foundation, was the climax of a three-day fundraiser organised by the 25-year-old mum of three.

Natalia made a stunning hostess in a dramatic scarlet gown with red feather shrug and a bejewelled hair band. And she wasn't the only one on sparkling form. Eva, looking fabulous after giving birth last summer to son George, dazzled in diamonds and emeralds.

Joining them was a solo Natalie Imbruglia, who split last month from her Aussie rock singer husband of four years, Daniel Johns.
