Naomi Campbell, Rita Ora and Liz Hurley all opted to wear Cavalli to welcome the opening of the V&A's The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 - 2014 exhibition

Roberto Cavalli was the designer of choice for the A-list on the red carpet at the opening night of the V&A's The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 - 2014 exhibition, with Naomi Campbell, Rita Ora and Liz Hurley all opting to wear dresses by the iconic designer.

Naomi Campbell paid testament to the title of the exhibition in an elegant below-the-knee dress, embellished with beads and red feathers.

Rita Ora opted for something similar by Cavalli, albeit at the opposite end of the colour spectrum, in a white beaded maxi dress which she matched to her silvery-white quiff.

Meanwhile, Liz Hurley stepped out in a classic Cavalli LBD (with sexy cut-outs, obvs), which she accessorised with a glittery silver clutch. We're just a little bit disappointed hat Liz didn't use this opportunity to revive her infamous Versace safety-pin dress.

Other guests at the star-studded event included Poppy Delevingne, who injected some colour into the evening with an eye-popping Emilio Pucci dress; Eva Herzigova who was stunning in a shimmering gold pencil dress and David Gandy who played the role of dapper gent for the evening.

The exhibition, which charts the rise and influence of Italian fashion and style – and how it changed the world's perceptions of postwar Italy – from 1945 to the present day, opens at the V&A on 5 April.
