When in Romeā€¦


Armani's Eccentrico exhibition

Throw an epic party—or, at least, that’s Giorgio Armani’s plan of action. At 3 p.m., we’ll be taking you inside Armani’s One Night Only Roma,—a celebration of Italy (and the brand’s new Via Condotti boutique) that will feature a triple runway event (the Fall ’13 Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani collections will hit the catwalk, as will the Spring ’13 Armani Privé range), the opening of the expanded Eccentrico exhibition, which first made its debut in Milan in September, and a cocktail party and dinner. The house expects the likes of Sophia Loren, Milla Jovovich, Tina Turner, and, of course, Mr. Armani to descend upon Rome’s Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana for the festivities. Before our live stream kicks off (below), take a peek inside the Eccentrico exhibition (above), or browse through Armani’s exclusive content at

Armani Takes a Roman Holiday


Giorgio Armani's Fall '13 ads

Tonight, Giorgio Armani and co. will head to Rome to open his new boutique on Via Condotti (think Italy’s answer to Madison Avenue). But this is Armani we’re talking about, so, naturally, there will be a grande event to celebrate the store. At 3 p.m., will live-stream the house’s One Night Only Roma—a fete that will feature runway shows of the Fall ’13 collections from Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, as well as the Armani Privé Spring collection, the opening of Armani’s Eccentrico exhibition, and, of course, una festa with plenty of star power (Milla Jovovich, Tina Turner, and Sophia Loren will all be in attendance). Armani, which has, in the past, hosted similar events in London, Tokyo, and Beijing, has also given us a sneak peek at its Fall ’13 campaign. Lensed by Mert & Marcus and starring Mariacarla Boscono and Florian Van Bael, the snaps have a slick, futuristic edge. Take a peek at the campaign’s exclusive debut (above), and check back this afternoon for the live stream of Giorgio Armani’s One Night Only Roma show and party.

What’s Tennis Got To Do With It?


Venus Williams incited a minor international debate with her slightly bordello-ish lace outfit at the French Open a few weeks back. But if you thought that was…well, whatever you thought that was, the unfazed fashion plate promises you ain’t seen nothing yet. “I know that the French Open outfit look caused a stir, but I think the one I will wear in the next couple days will be better yet—it’s all about lace and fringes, a lot of fringes. I’m thinking about Tina Turner here. I am not sure how that is going to go over, but at least I can say that it will catch everyone’s attention.”

For the moment, though, Williams was clad in Ralph Lauren, at RL’s New Bond Street London shop for his annual pre-Wimbledon party. (As the man is preparing to sell a tiny percentage of his company for quite near $1 billion, there was, needless to say, much Champagne flowing.)

Well, if anyone can avert eyes from World Cup mania, it’s Venus—she certainly held her own among Gwyneth Paltrow, her bestie/stylist Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, Matt LeBlanc, Love‘s Katie Grand, and of course, Lilly and Boris Becker (pictured above with Williams). But Grand, usually thought of more as LV than RL, only had eyes for shopping. “I was one of the first people here tonight, and I have already ID’ed this chair with the RL crest pillow as the next on my most wanted list,” she said, tucking her feet up into a rattan Montauk-esque jobby. And to go with it? “The navy jacket with the white piping—must, must have it. I am working on it.” Come to think of it, modify it for the court and it might be a good look for Venus, too.
