Valentino: The Last Emperor

[Billy Farrell/Sipa Press]

Valentino: The Last Emperor hit select cities yesterday. The film, directed by Matt Tyrnauer, tells the story of the legendary Italian fashion designer Valentino's life and illustrious career with business partner Giancarlo Giammetti. It gives a glimpse into the world of haute couture - French for "high dressmaking."

Anne Hathaway wore this lovely Valentino dress to the NYC premiere of the film. Often times, white doesn't look great on fair-skinned gals, but Hathaway pulls this off. Is it just me, or are celebs wearing a lot of dresses in shades of white? I love the draping and one-shoulder strap, and the gold clutch is a nice touch. Hathaway is featured in the documentary.

The film has been showing in film festivals around the world including Venice and Chicago. It opened yesterday in select cities. I can't wait to see it!
