Out braving Milan's chilly November weather last night was Naomi Campbell with beau Vladislav Doronin, Giorgio Armani, Italian Vogue's Anna Piaggi, Margherita Missoni and the man himself Valentino Garavani with business partner and companion Giancarlo Giammetti.
They say that behind every successful man is a wise woman - or perhaps in the case of Valentino, a wise man. As Valentino: the last Emperor made its Milanese debut last night - the fashion pack got the opportunity to behind-the-scenes look at the world of fashion and Valentino's relationship with his long-time business partner, Giancarlo Giammetti.

Even for the fashion-obsessed the film makes for fascinating watching - exploring the role of Giancarlo Giammetti's in Valentino's crazy world. As with the film world's other recent release 'This Is It' which showcases the relationship between Michael Jackson and his ever patient and innovative director Kenny Ortega and 'The September issue' which sees Vogue US Editor Anna Wintour listen to nobody else but her long-suffering Creative Director Grace Coddington - the films highlight the quiet and often overlooked geniuses that support the world's more flamboyant figure heads.
