Valentino: the last emperor

I finally got to see the Valentino documentary last night and it was fantastic! I was completely captivated by the meticulous process of creating a Valentino masterpiece, starting from just an idea in his mind all the way through to the runway show.

The movie was a fascinating glimpse into Valentino's life...the dresses, the villas/chateaus/yachts, the 5 perfect pugs, the celebrities, fashion shows, and even the business side of the industry.

But, at the core of it all, this movie was a sweet love story about Valentino and his business partner of 45 years, Giancarlo.

It is a must see!!!
