Getting right to the point, Valentino Garavani's new book is called Valentino: At the Emperor's Table, and rightfully so. The fashion powerhouse teamed up with luxury book publisher Assouline to immortalise himself in literature, showcasing his incredibly posh lifestyle.

Expect to see photos of the extravagant parties he's hosted (we won't be surprised if it includes a certain Kimye wedding lunch) as well as of his homes. Yes, that's plural for the properties the 82-year-old owns in Gstaad, London, and Paris.

"I am very often alone and enjoying my houses," Valentino writes in the book, according to WWD. "Entertaining 30 or one is the same; the food has to be on a beautiful plate." What we'd give to attend one of his parties. Speaking of all things grand, let's have a look at Valentino's Haute Couture collection again.
