THE PERFECT LIFE (30 Minutes) takes the viewer inside Valentino’s homes around the world, revealing the unique lifestyle he’s created for himself and the amount of work it takes to maintain it. We follow Michael Kelly, Valentino’s Irish majordomo, as he prepares a lavish party at Chateau Wideville, Valentino’s estate outside of Paris. In the style of Robert Altman’s Gosford Park, we go back and forth between upstairs, where Valentino entertains his guests, and downstairs, where Michael Kelly directs the army of waiters, chefs and maids. In a second chapter, we fly on the private aircraft with Valentino and his entourage to Gstaad for a vacation at the glamorous ski resort. Lastly, we discover Valentino’s residence on Fifth Avenue, as Valentino visits New York for the Costume Institute Benefit Gala.

In THE LAST COLLECTION (8 Minutes), we see Valentino’s farewell haute couture show. The show took place in January 2008 in Paris, five month after Valentino announced his retirement. Memorable for its all-red finale, the show was a last homage to Valentino’s creative genius, attended by the likes of Uma Thurman, Claudia Schiffer and Muccia Prada.

A RED DRESS (8 Minutes) takes us inside Valentino’s Rome haute couture workshop where the seamstresses work on the red dress that is featured in the movie. Antonietta De Angelis reveals some of her secrets about dressmaking and working for Valentino.
