Grazia Daily would like to send out a great big thank you and hooray! For Armani – both Emporio Armani and Armani Jeans for bringing us this visual delight on such a grey and grizzly morning. Oh Rafa. Rafa. Or, as we like to call him; BIG ARM. For the tennis-playing, pant-wearing legend has completely cornered the market on lopsided sexiness with his bulging, powerful, almighty serving arm which is slightly bigger and more muscley than the other. Rrrrrr.
And yes, we do feel bad about coming across so lechy. Every time we read an interview with Rafa or a profile piece about him we hear the same thing; Rafa is really only into tennis. Rafa doesn’t want to be a big personality or showbiz figure. Rafa leads a simple life, on the tennis circuit and then occasionally in Majorca, where he is from. He’s not a big chatterbox.
So, that is why we LOVE Mr Armani and are forever grateful to him and EVERYONE in his fine company – for persuading Rafa the racket wielder and reluctant model to part company with his clothes – however temporarily, for the purposes of this fashion shoot, to display these high quality pants in a context that befits them.
It has certainly put a teeny spring in our step this morning.
