Premièring yesterday at the 65th Venice Film Festival was Valentino: The Last Emperor, a documentary chronicling the designer’s last two years at Valentino.
With Vanity Fair’s Matt Tymauer directing, the film follows Valentino and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti with over 250 hours of footage shot.
The première was a ritzy affair with Elizabeth Hurley, Diane Kruger, and Charlize Theron in attendance. Valentino turned up looking his usual mahogany self and Fiat hier/Italian playboy Lapo Elkann accompanied girlfriend Bianca Brandolini D’Adda.
