Luxury lifestyle pros Quintessentially and Gilt Groupe hosted the premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor Tuesday night at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Tons of familiar faces from the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and media came together to salute iconic designer Valentino Garavani as friends and fans to view the behind the scenes documentary chronicling the last two years of the designer's time as head of his empire captured by filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer.

More photos and story from this event below... The premiere was followed by dinner at The Plaza Hotel's Oak Room where Madonna, who skipped the red carpet, sat sandwiched between pals Claire Danes and Gwenyth Paltrow; Agnyess Deyn had girl talk with Fiona Byrne; Gayle King exchanged digits with Karolina Kurkova; and Diane von Furstenberg, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Christensen all arrived looking stunning per usual.
