Valentino: The Last Emperor

Essential Opinion – Valentino: The Last Emperor

There are many icons of haute couture, but only one that can leave such a piercing mark on your psyche and wittingly convince you that you have intimately witnessed the work of a master. Valentino: The Last Emperor is not a hyperbolic, overrated or tacky documentary of passing trends like many others, but rather a unique, abiding and eye-opening glance at the boisterous life of a legendary fashion designer who vehemently seeks pleasure only to be disappointed by its fleeting and faulty nature.
