What a spoilt main in a spoilt world! Madness indeed! Yet compelling.
Bravo! I feel the need to say something flouncy like that. Loved this.
didnt know much about the history of valentino. this movie was fantastic insight to the high end fashion world. the glamour. yetwith human touch. beautfiul people an beautiful dresses. very entertaining
It's not bad as far as doco's go, but it would help if you were a fan of fashion, as it is jam-packed with prancing, primping fashionistas.... You can't deny Valentino's passion for design and his creative abilites, but there are alot of tantrums thrown for grown men...
A perfect insight into the guarded world of fashion.
A fabulous insight into creative haute couture and the mind, personality and lifestyle of Valentino. This film pays homage to his outstanding achievements as a fashion leader over 45 years until his retirement.
An interesting insight into one of the most important designers of the last 50 years. You need to be a documentary fan to enjoy this one I think, as the film doesn't flow smoothly at certain points, but worth it.
Valentino, The Last Emperor was a fascinating look-in behind the scenes of this great designer - a wonderful sketch of the man, his work and his relationships. The film was done with meticulous care, as if to echo the meticulousness of Valentino, a work of art in itself.
The doco is a fascinating insight into the world of high fashion and the personalities involved. Not always flattering of Valentinoe, it does convey the drive for excellence and beauty. The accompanying short films are fabulous, particularly The red dress. Great to see when the exhibition is in Brisbane!
A fascinating look behind the scenes of literally the last emperor of fashion. Intriguing and very enjoyable.
I now know about Valentino Red! Fascinating look into the machinations of the haute couture fashion world. A lot of smoke and mirrors ensue and it seems to me that the seamstresses are the unsung (and probably underpaid) heroes and artisans of this world. Valentino and his partner of many years have a lot of balls to keep in the air and they manage to do it with aplomb. Lots of very, very beautiful gowns and beautiful people to see, not to mention the fabulous mansions and locales.
A good, honest documentary. Valentino comes through as the genuine prima donna of fashion that so many film and book characters are based on. These people really exist. Good attention to detail with an appreciation of the work done by his expert seamstresses. All the work is hand sewn. They bought a machine but never used it.
A good insight into the fashion world. I liked Valentino's dresses, simple and elegant. No wonder he lasted so long. The relationship with his partneris thoughtfully done. If you like Pugs, they are an included "extra", and probably the only normal people in the film.
