I couldn't wait for this movie to appear; so I finally saw it in a pretty little boutique theatre. Then I bought this DVD and have seen it more than a dozen times already. I love fashion and collect fashion books. I also love fashion videos. This one is the best. I loved seeing how the clothes are made and the inside workings of the company by Mr Giammetti (who I have a big crush on). I bought the book too and will read it leasurely because it is such a beautiful treat. Mr. Valentino Garavani is a lovely, demanding, genius. I honor his talent.

If you love fashion and want to experience not only a behind the scenes look into what goes into a runway show but to learn about one of fashion's true icons, run to buy this documentary. It was truly moving at some points, funny at others and so informative. And personally, being of Italian descent, I found the, shall I say "passion" of so many of the characters heartwarming. To watch the most beautiful dresses made completely by hand, not a sewing machine in the atelier, was incredible! Bravo! There will never be another Valentino!

Valentino: The Last Emporer was an homage to an earlier era when fashion was elegant and beautiful...not simply excessive. It was also a cautionary tale. When greed and extravagance supplanted art, the era of elegance was over.
