Valentino The Last Emperor


Valentino The Last Emperor, the award-winning feature film by Matt Tyrnauer, about the legendary Italian designer, Valentino Garavani was released this month in U.S. theaters, starting with an exclusive engagement at the Film Forum in NYC. It has now become the highest-grossing documentary debut of 2009, with a completely sold-out weekend.

I was fortunate to have seen this film at the Chicago Film Festival last October. I personally am no fashionista but loved this beautiful film for its portrayal of Valentino, the man and the legend. In a random act of chance, I ended up hosting the Co-Producer/Co-Editor of this film, Frederic Tcheng while he was in town for the screening of the film and I was also able to meet the director, Matt Tyrnauer. Both are great men and I am happy to see their work being recognized for what it is, a great documentary.
