Ever since Valentino: The Last Emperor, the film documenting legendary designer Valentino Garavani's life, premiered at the Venice Film Festival last week, we've been desperately trying to find out when we'll be able to see it ourselves. After all, not only does it reveal the intimate workings of one of the world's most famous couture houses, there are cameos from Elizabeth Hurley and the designer's six pet pug dogs (who have their teeth brushed!). And now we'll get to see it at last! Even though the film hasn't got an official distributor in the UK yet, London's Hospital Club will be showing excerpts during London Fashion Week. The Samsung-sponsored show, The Red Thread: The Inspiration and Passion of Valentino Garavani, runs from 14 until 19 September and will also include photographs and couture gowns from the master of Italian glamour. Even better? It's free!
