Let's take a break from the shop talk for a moment and discuss Valentino the Last Emperor. So I watched it last night and loved it. Now, I know, this was not a significant part of the film (or is it...) but like a scene out of Alice in Wonderland I could not stop laughing when Mr. Valentino had the less than perfect patches of grass spray painted green. Like the Queen of Hearts before him, this was a testament to an eye for perfection. It's the details...the amazing hand crafted details...that make a Valentino couture gown a piece of art.
