Valentino: The Last Emperor

October 29th, 2009 by Inkslinger



You may find this hard to believe, but PX This has always been much much more about Fashion than the F&B Industry. But, that’s not the only reason my Netflix recommendation of the week is Valentino: The Last Emperor.

You see, one of the perks of being a PX This Dot Com administrator is that I now have access to the official email inbox — which even includes emails from long, long ago before this new version of the website was even built. Well, to try and make a long story short, a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon this old email from the past. And one of things I found very intriguing was this passage:

".. You migth definately find this interesting, Well like I said I used to work at [withheld] and so I know [withheld] and you know she had to leave beacsue they found out about all the [withheld] she stole that she was giving away to all her big-name clients and friends and such. Scandal! And did you know she works for [withheld] now… but the way she cemmented herself is that she introduced [model] to [withheld] who is the son of [withheld]… which is the company that OWNS [withheld]….because of her client list whcih little do they realize she gave away half the stock for free to get…Well I don’t have to tell you fashion is sooo shady…"

But, of course, in the original email, the "[withheld]" parts are all visible. Well, wouldn’t you know, browsing through Netflix last week, I just happened to stumble upon a certain documentary about the fashion world, and I simply couldn’t resist adding it to the top of my queue. And I’m so glad I did!

What a fascinating movie! I mean, if you’ve read PX This, that is. And have access to the email inbox. And do a little creative Googling. And think for a couple of minutes.
