  Current Validity of Cultural Dimensions Model
Henri de Jongste
  Dear Ilonka, To my mind the standard answer would be that cultural core values are slow to change, so in that respect the answer is yes. On the other hand, the dimensions are no more than a necessarily coarse framework that can only indicate general preferences, as Hofstede says himself. In that respect it may be that stronger claims are sometimes made than are warranted by the master himself.

  Cultural Dimensions are still valid
Eleazar Guillen Valle
  The five dimensions of Hofstede are still valid even though the idea was developed more than 30 years ago.
But, one thing is for sure: cultures are constantly changing and a country that had a certain score or classification on any of the cultural dimensions may not be in that spot anymore.
And: other dimensions might have to be added now that we have a better understanding of the issue. Conculsion: the basic framework is excellent to study culture, but knowing that we have to update the classifications of countries from time to time.
