The Final Show

For his last show, Valentino decided to be his own face. The invite features the designer sadly looking out a car window in what I assume is a reflection of his almost half a century career in the industry. His last Haute Couture show will be held Wednesday evening at the Musée Rodin where all the who's who are expected to attend. This will be the designer's final show bow after 45-years designing his namesake label. Alessandra Facchinetti, former Gucci designer, will take over beginning with, fall 2008, her first collection for the house. For those interested in going behind-the-scenes and viewing an edited version of more than 250 hours of footage can view Matt Tyrnauer's documentary, Valentino: The Last Emperor, which will premier at the Cannes Film Festival.
