Valentino: The Last Emperor

Valentino: The Last Emperor 

Produced and directed by Matt Tyrnauer, the film is an intimate, engaging and funny fly-on-the-wall exploration of one of Italy's richest and most famous men, legendary designer Valentino Garavani.

The film documents the colorful and dramatic closing act of Valentino’s celebrated career, tells the story of his extraordinary life and work, and also explores the larger themes affecting the fashion business today. But at the heart of the film is the unique relationship between Valentino and his business partner and companion of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti.

Matt Tyrnauer is a New York-based writer and filmmaker. He has worked for Spy magazine and The New York Observer, and is currently Special Correspondent of Vanity Fair. His book Una Grande Storia Italiana: Valentino Garavani was published by Taschen in 2007. Valentino: The Last Emperor (08) is his first feature documentary.
