Ahhh. Nothing like a double whammy feature of fashion documentary films. After hearing many rave reviews, the boyfriend and I treated ourselves to Valentino : The Last Emperor last week. It is a beautiful movie, one part reality television (the cameras follow Valentino, his partner and crew around for many months – real moments ensue) and one part fairy fashion tale displaying the extravagant lifestyle we all associate with mega successful European couture designers. The film creschendos in Rome with a fete fit for a king to celebrate Valentino’s 45th year of crafting stunning dresses and strutting down runways.
Unzipped and Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton are two fashion documentaries that came out several years ago and profile some of most celebrated designers. Intern Rose and I are stocking up on Kettle Corn and paying a visit to Blockbuster later this week.
What other fabulous fashion documentaries are out there that we should know about? Let us know!
