The iconic designer who is particularly famous for his red-carpet creations and sizzling scarlet gowns, revealed the musical plans to La Repubblica: “We’re looking at the possibility of taking my story to Broadway, as a musical.”
Valentino’s life has already been examined before – but this time on the lens, if you remember the 2009 documentary on the designer ‘Valentino: The Last Emperor’. And Broadway had better be careful how they portray Valentino on the stage, because the designer was initially not pleased with how he came across on the film.
He said: “I came across as a despot. The director had surprised Giancarlo Giammetti [Valentino's business partner] and me when we were arguing, which we always do in French. But then (at the end of the screening), the applause never stopped and I saw that people liked me as I am.”
Naturellement, Valentino! Every one simply adores a diva. Save up for your Valentino gowns now ladies – we guarantee that the opening night of the show will be a fashion night to remember.
