Also be sure to check out the local premiere of V
alentino: The Last Emperor, opening Friday at Oak Street Cinema and the Theatres at Mall of America. The new film documenting the life and career of legendary Italian fashion designer Valentino very nearly didn’t make it to Minneapolis. Fortunately, the film lovers behind the Oak Street decided to take matters into their own hands and were able to secure a two-week stint. The feature-length film was made in the wake of his 2008 retirement from the company he founded more than 45 years ago, and shows all the goings-on behind the scenes as the designer prepares to send his final couture collection down the runway. The film is only coming to a handful of U.S. cities, so consider yourself lucky.
