I finally watched the documentary about Valentino’s reign in the fashion world and recommend that you see it if you haven’t already. Best scenes include the retrospective of his work, his five pugs and Karl Lagerfeld whispering to Valentino; “Look what we do. Everyone else â€” they are making rags.” If you are curious about the formula that comprises the Valentino red it’s 100% magenta, 100% yellow and 10% black.
