Moderated by Cheryl Locke, Fashion Journalism Coordinator

Matt Tyrnauer, producer and director of Valentino: The Last Emperor, the widely acclaimed documentary with unprecedented access to Valentino and his extended family, previewed the trailer and clips from the film and spoke of his experiences and impressions as a journalist and a documentarian who spent two years, from June 2005 to July 2007, capturing 250 hours of footage of Valentino’s private and public life. Matt Tyrnauer is a Special Correspondent at Vanity Fair magazine and this is his first documentary. In his own words, Valentino: The Last Emperor is an “…engaging and entertaining portrait of an extraordinary partnership…and a dramatic story about a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career”. He further states, “What started as a journalistic inquiry, in the end, revealed a unique love story with the world of fashion as a backdrop.”
