Some historical shots of Valentino and his collections:
"I love beauty. It's not my fault"
Yesterday = Lazy Sunday afternoon spent watching ‘Valentino:The Last Emperor’ documentary for the 3rd time. Even if you aren’t into fashion it’s a really funny film and I totally recommend it. Valentino Garavani comes across as almost cartoon-like due to his unbelievable stubbornness and grandeur. Other things I love about this film:
1) Dresses: They are beautifully breathtaking, feminine, detailed, elegant, and show fragility and a level of craftsmanship that you just don’t see in dressmaking today.
2) The Dogs, and when Valentino says “I don’t care about the collection. My dogs are much more important.”
3) Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti’s relationship. Giammetti’s Patience. Giammetti says “If two people ride a horse, one person must sit in back”. An unsaid fashion truth. Every fashion powerhouse has its silent brain.
