NWFC: Valentino: The Last Emperor

March 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Whitsell Auditorium, inside the Portland Art Museum

US, 2008

Shot by Vanity Fair Correspondent Matt Tyrnauer between 2005 and 2007, VALENTINO: THE LAST EMPEROR, offers an intimate and engaging, fly-on-the-wall insight into the personal and business life of one of Italy’s most famous fashion designers, Valentino Garavani. With unprecedented levels of access, we’re drawn into a rarified world of haute couture, glamour, and unabashed excess. Then in the twilight of his years, Valentino and his longtime partner, Giancarlo Giammetti, move regally between exotic locations and events worldwide as they prepare for Valentino’s final show. “At turns touchy and catty, a must-see for fashion-lovers and pop culture addicts alike.”—New York Times Magazine. (90 mins.)
