Movie Review: Valentine: The Last Emperor

Valentino: The Last Emperor follows the Italian haute couture fashion designer in his final years as the principal designer of his line. As the oldest standing iconic designer the documentary is an interesting look at the man behind the famous gowns.

Although this film is definitely primarily recommended for those with an interest in fashion, it is also an in depth look at the world of design in general and how the balance of business and art mesh together, revealing ultimately that the glitzy end products and rail thin models are the least of anyone's worries.

Check out the trailer below & checkout the 2008 doc. on dvd.
