Believe me, I have no clue about the fashion world, and the fact that the fashion guru Valentino had retired two years ago was news to me. Call me a socialist, but I find some aspects of the capitalist life (brushing your dogs' teeth?!) disgusting. Watching the life and times of this most famous of all fashion designers wasn't boring, but for a more honest behind-the-scenes look at the fashion world, I would recommend Robert Altman's "Pret-a-Porter" (1994) - even though that is not a documentary.
