Valentino is one of the great legends of fashion who has been making women look beautiful for over 45 years. We went backstage at Valentino’s Fall 2007 show in Paris to find out why he says “beauty is in his blood”.

Valentino Garavani’s Fall 2007 collection was inspired by a forties movie star, it’s “old Hollywood” glamour, a look that has really defined this designer’s extraordinary career –

” I put this collection together thinking about the glamorous girl, the glamorous people and they are around and they want to be beautiful. This is my final arrival – I want to make women look beautiful. I always loved glamour because I love a woman being beautiful, this is in my blood. You know what do I have to do – it’s beauty, like I love a beautiful lady, I love a beautiful dog, I love a beautiful piece of furniture

I love beauty, it’s not my fault” – Valentino

Featuring Daria Werbowy, Julia Stegner and some of the world’s top models including Anja Rubik, Gemma Ward and Natasha Poly. Interviews with makeup artist by Pat McGrath, Hair by Orlando Pita.

Interviews by Karen Morrison, Executive Producer & Director.  Camera: Sebastien Goyer. A production of MODTV Fashion Network
