: : : Valentino: The Last Emperor

Story

Valentino: The Last Emperor is a retrospective, a story of friendship, and a look at haute couture as business. The film revolves around Valentino Garavani (1932- ) and partner Giancarlo Giammetti from preparation for the 2006 Spring/Summer Collection in Paris to a July 2007 retrospective of Valentino's 45-year career, which included dressing Jacqueline Kennedy.
A year of work is documented from locations such as Paris, Rome, and Venice, including shows, business changes, and decisions. Creations are followed from sketch to the runway, from a man who's always in pursuit of beauty. He also receives the French Legion of Honor medal, delivering a moving acceptance speech.
But through all of this, one question looms: is the retrospective his career finalie?
