…Let me count the ways, for there are no words to describe my love for both Mr. Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti. Two years ago, I had the ultimate pinch-me-am-I-dreaming moment when I had the honor to be a part of Valentino’s 45th Anniversary Celebration in Rome. To revisit that beautiful experience in this documentary is surreal—I get teary-eyed just thinking about it.
I am forever grateful to Mr. Valentino, as I have had more unforgettable Valentino moments in my career as a stylist than almost any other designer. The Emperor’s success lies in his ability to truly understand how to make women look and feel beautiful, often through his signature red dresses. Throughout his reign, he has set the bar extraordinarily high and continues to inspire an entire generation of new designers. This documentary not only illustrates the influence he has on this industry, but what lies beneath one of the most iconic brands in fashion history. You don’t have to be a fashion aficionado to appreciate Valentino: The Last Emperor, because at the film’s core is a true love story between two extraordinary and unique individuals. It is a universal masterpiece that everyone needs to see. So, in their honor, put on a red dress and pay homage to the masters! xoRZ
