"An evening dress that reveals a woman's ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen"
I adore the Valentino: The Last Emperor documentary which followed Garavani in the run-up to the Rome exhibit and his retirement. In this excerpt, there is a beautiful mid-air performance from dancers dressed in Valentino gowns. Enjoy!
Valentino: Master of Couture, is at Somerset House, London from 29 November to 3 March
