Although the redoubtable Miuccia Prada and the rambunctious Marc Jacobs have expressed their reservations over the worth of social networking (although Marc does have business partner Robert Duffy to do it for him), the lovely Roberto Cavalli has decided to embrace it warmly and kiss it on both cheeks.
Oh yes. Roberto is now officially a blogger – you can be privy to his inner most thoughts and inspiration just by logging on to http://www.robertocavalliblog.com/.
Here is an example of his brilliant mind “I keep creating dreams. You always have to dream.In all these years I pursued the dream of beauty. I created dresses for women who are the maximum expression of beauty and for men who need the beauty of women to complete themselves.” Erm.
What do we really think about this? It's brilliant news of course! True, just because you can design a slinky animal print frock like no one else could and your best friend is Veebie doesn’t mean you’re necessarily an insightful wordsmith to boot, oh no no. But it is nice that you’re not too arrogant and lofty to want to reach out to your fans.
Roberto, We’ll be sticking you in our favourites for the name-clanging celeb anecdotes alone. Mr Cavalli’s most recent after-show party had Courtney Love mingling with Lindsay Lohan AND Pixie Geldof in
We’ll also be going straight to Roberto when we’re thinking about taking our tan up a notch or two to deepest Ronseal and of course, when compiling our ‘Top 5 Most Enormous Belt Buckles’ we’ll be on the site quicker than you can say ‘yachts rock!’
