Marie Chantal wore Valentino at her 1995 wedding and the wedding dress is among the more than 130 hand-crafted designs in the exhibit, which runs through March 3, 2013. Ferguson is the ex-wife of Queen Elizabeth II's son Prince Andrew, and her daughters are the queen's grandchildren.

Among the other guests, many of them dressed in Valentino outfits, were Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, and burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, Vogue reports.
