The Emperor Knows Clothes

Après moi, le déluge.

Last week I had the (guilty) pleasure of seeing Valentino:  The Last Emperor.  The film was a surprisingly candid look into the divinely glamourous life of Signore Valentino Garavani and his lifetime partner in business and life, Giancarlo Giammetti.  Elegant, touching, humorous, with a touch of drama, the film contained all the elements one would expect in the telling of any life story.   A must see for every fashion enthusiast, you will leave feeling inspired after a peek into the life of one of the world's greatest fashion inamorata.
