Valentino- The Last Emperor- excellent for a lazy Sunday morning

This morning, when I woke up, my Husbee was watching a movie on SKY.
Instead of waking up and making breakfast, I stayed in bed and watched the movie with him.
After 10 minutes I was watching it, I was totally hypnotized by the beautiful images.

The movie was "VALENTINO THE LAST EMPEROR", which is an intimate portray of the singular world of one of Italy's most famous men. The film provides a first-time glimpse into Valentino's world of bygone glamour. Filmed over the course of two years, the movie highlights include an intimate, behind-the-scenes peek at his relationship with longtime business partner and lover Giancarlo Giammetti, as well as an up-close and personal look at the designer's creative process.
I was impressed by the big role Giammetti played and still plays in Valentino's life. It seems that if Valentino became famous all the merit goes to Giammetti, who patiently stayed by his side for over 45 years.

The movie ends with Valentino's last show at Ara Pacis (Ara Pacis, or Altar of Peace, built for Rome’s first emperor, Augustus, between 13 – 9 BC) in Rome. The exhibit opened to the public in October 2007. The pictures below are about the exhibition which featured 300 dresses designed by Valentino over the course of his 45-year career.

Beautiful dresses, totally unaffordable, but definitely true works of art designed by one of the best Italian stylist.
