On Sunday night, I made my way to SoHo to view the “Valentino: The Last Emperor” screening at the Angelika. I was super-excited about the film and hoped I’d get to chat up ALT himself, who hosted a Q&A right after the movie. Lo and behold…

If I look shell-shocked, that’s because I was! Mr. Talley was gracious enough to pose for a pic but, alas, was in too much of a rush after the event ended to give a Fashion Bomb exclusive. Maybe next time…
Valentino: The Last Emperor” is sumptuous: chock-full of laughs, tears, and fabulous fashion. It revolves around the deisgner’s relationship with his longtime partner, Giancarlo Giammetti, as well as his retirement in 2007. Cameos galore and and an inside look at how Valentino plies his craft and managed to stay at the top of his game for 45 years. A *must-watch* for stylephiles!
