Valentino on Rio: Just Like Home, Sans Pugs
I caught up with Mr. Valentino last night at the Claro Rio Summer opening party, where he explained his love of this beautiful, beachy city. “It feels like home,” said Mr. V. “I came here 30 years ago for the first time. I sat down and paid attention to everyone passing by in the streets. All of the sudden, it reminded me so much of home. It is a very familiar place to me, so I kept coming back all these years.” Look for the ever-tanned legend next week in New York. But with so many travels, does he miss his adorable six-dog crew of pugs? Yes, he said, but they’re safely ensconced in one of his houses.
