V Day

As if you didn't already know, tonight is the New York premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor at MOMA (opens to the public tomorrow at Film Forum). Produced and directed by Vanity Fair's Matt Tyrnauer, this is the feature-length docu-draaaama of the Italian couturier and his emotional retirement last year from the house he spent 45 years building—and which made him one of the richest men in Italy. The best part—besides the pugs, if you're a dog lover—is watching Valentino's co-dependent relationship with his business partner and loffer of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti, who says brutally honest things like, "You're a little bit too tan." But then, as you wait for the bitch slap, Valentino just sits quietly and takes it. We should all be as whipped in our golden years.
