On April 1, LACMA presented the West Coast premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor, a film that offers an unprecedented look into the world of haute couture by examining the creative genius of Valentino Garavani and his business partner, Giancarlo Giammetti–both recipients of the 2009 Costume Council Legend Award–who together created an international fashion empire.

For almost half a century, Valentino dominated Italian haute couture, dressing the world’s wealthiest and most glamorous women. The film chronicles the lives of Valentino and Giammetti as they round out their 50-plus year careers.
