Valentino: The Last Emperor

I saw Valentino: The Last Emperor last week and I can honestly say it's the best thing I've seen in a long time. The documentary chronicles the two years leading up to Valentino's retirement and features so many beautiful clothes, people, and homes it will make you giddy. The film ends with Valentino's three-day 45th anniversary celebration in Rome and seeing all the work that went into producing the spectacle is awe inspiring - this man (and all the creative people who work for him) certainly knows how to throw a party!
