Valentino: Rodeo King

-------

After a late night celebrating the premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor in
L.A. on Wednesday, the iconic Italian designer was honored again on Thursday morning. The City of Beverly Hills presented an emotional Valentino Garavani with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award, which has previously gone to Tom Ford, Donatella Versace, Giorgio Armani, Manolo Blahnik, and Mario Testino. “I feel as beautiful as I possibly can when I wear Valentino,” said Anne Hathaway, who made the presentation and became friends with the designer during The Devil Wears Prada. “I am drunk with compliments,” added Valentino. His signature will be permanently placed on the sidewalk of the famous street.

    I’m glad that he said I’m drunk with compliments. Yes an arrogant Italian, who’s company fired Alessandra Fachinetti after two seasons. He can be proud on what he has achieved, but NOT about coop with people. If he gets full attention it’s alright, but don’t stand up to him, then you have a problem. Actually I say every designer who has to much power, will become an Emperor. Look to Mr. Lagerfeld, YSL or others. What the fashion industry needs is fresh blood. Like Galliano, Ghesquiere, Gareth Pugh etc. We always will remember the “old” guys, but we have to look forward. Despite that I’m a countryman of Mr. Garavani I don’t like his celeb behaviour.
