Valentino Garavani is a popular lad, as was proved at the New York première of Matt Tyrnauer's documentary, Valentino: The Last Emperor, last night. Movie stars mingled with designers and models alike at the glittery event held at Manhattan's Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Following television plugs on both Oprah and The Martha Stewart Show earlier in the day, the Italian design legend posed with Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway and Claire Danes on the red carpet. Representing the model contingent was Coco Rocha, Agyness Deyn, Jourdan Dunn, and Karolina Kurkova.

"He's one of the most talented men I've ever met. He's just a perfectionist to another degree. It's just great to be friends with somebody like that," Gwyneth told the press.
