Valentino Relocates, Expands in the Galleria

AS THE LIGHT at the end of the Covid tunnel brightens, and people feel increasingly comfortable resuming previously "normal" activities — like shopping at an indoor mall, sans anxiety — one luxury brand has unveiled its beautifully expanded boutique.


Earlier this month, Valentino relocated within the Galleria, to a larger, 4,000-square-foot space. The new interior is outfitted in luxe materials like gray Venetian terrazzo flooring, with accents of walnut and kilim wool. The combination complements the collection of womenswear and menswear, displayed on sleek, black metal, LED-illuminated shelving hung on fluted gypsum panels, and geometric rugs add a dynamic pop.

Guests can try on Valentino's ready-to-wear apparel in an equally beautiful, textured dressing room, featuring plush velvet in shades of green and blush.

The new boutique is located on level one, near Neiman Marcus.

With Expertise in Blondes, Extensions and More, the Janelle Alexis Team Is a Go-To Salon

YOU CAN'T LIMIT Janelle to one title – Hairdresser. Her career and business has been established and built on a strong foundation. Using her two business degrees + one more in-process, this enables Janelle and the team to deliver not only a customer-focused experience, but a foundationally solid business. There is much more than meets the eye, and in sharing a little bit about Janelle, she was not only an international hair extension educator for over 14 years, but brings extensive expertise to blondes. She rounds this out with her previously launched namesake cosmetic line, which is a perfect complement to her belief that “Beauty is our Business”.

SEVERE WEATHER — NO, not the Derecho or Hurricane Beryl, but one of the other storms that have battered Houston this season — did its best to derail CityBook’s second annual “Cool 100” party. But hundreds of H-Town’s most notable VIPs and influencers braved the elements and made the event a smash.

THE WRATH OF Hurricane Beryl couldn’t stop the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo from presenting 70 students, representing 57 Future Farmers of America chapters from across Texas, with $1.4 million in scholarships to a college of their choice. Scholarships were awarded at last week’s 96th annual Texas FFA State Convention which, amazingly, was held July 8-12 in the George R. Brown Convention Center for the first time in 20 years. The scholarship awards are part of Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s $27.3 million dollar commitment this year to support Texas youth and statewide educational programs.
