We don't know Italian, but luckily several fashion folks who do have translated bits and pieces from an interview in Italy's La Repubblica with legendary designer Valentino.
The now-retired designer opened up about a variety of topics, including his portrayal in the documentary "Valentino: The Last Emperor" in 2009.
Valentino told the newspaper that he was less than pleased with how he appeared on screen -- "I came across as a despot," he said -- but that he might get a chance to do it all over: there may be a live Valentino show in the works.
According to the Telegraph, the designer told La Repubblica, "We're looking at the possibility of taking my story to Broadway, as a musical."
For realz, Valentino?? Now that we would go see. Considering the glamour and fanfare with which Valentino bid "adieu" -- er, "ciao" to fashion, a full-on Valentino stage production would be quite the glittering spectacle. We're picturing lots of sparkles, lots of red dresses and lots of tanner.
The only thing that's a definite "no" is calling it "Valentino: The Musical." That name's already taken.
