Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a beautiful book with amazing graphics, which makes for a great coffee table book. The book is divided by decades throughout Valentino's career; it gives a great insight to each one. There are pictures of his ads, celebrities wearing his clothes, and of Valentino. I highly recommend this book for any fashionista or fan of Valentino!

I love this book. There are some great photos, a beautiful story and obviously Valentino's luscious dress collection to drool over. Definitely the best book out of all the other Valentino's books.

I'm so glad I got this book. I picked it up at a major Canadian book retailer for $40 (half the original price) and it's fantastic. So many photographs and stories that capture the lives of Valentino & Giametti. The book is divided into sections. It begins with the commentaries of other celebrities, fashionistas, designers and editors in the fashion world speaking about Valentino. There's another section with news/press excerpts, another with photographs of the collections. It's a great book to read and a beautiful book for any fashion-foward person's coffee table.
I would reccommend this DVD as a companion:Valentino: The Last Emperor
