You could never accuse Roberto Cavalli of being bland. Coming the week after his OMG dissing of Anna Wintour, the master of leopard print is back again with a stream of curious twitter updates. While we too have had our moments of twitter overshare - usually after that extra glass and a half - Cavalli’s brazen say–it-how-it-is attitude is pretty extraordinary. Starting with a collection of tweets about potential girlfriends, Cavalli the old joker is clearly not worried about ruffling any feathers.
Now while we also don’t like to beat about the bush, Cavalli’s outspokenness does suggest he could do with some help in editing his thoughts – for instance “wich girls do you like….beautiful and intelligent….or beautiful and stupid (sic)” – charming indeed.
Railing against the ‘fashion mafia’ and the fact that there are no ‘franch’ designers in any ‘franch’ design houses (we are guessing he means French), Cavalli leaves his most forceful tweets for Anna Wintour - drawing attention to the fact that she doesn’t attend his shows because his brand doesn’t advertise in US Vogue. The RC vs. AW vendetta is becoming the biggest fashion fall out since Emmanuelle and Carine and while Ms Wintour is remaining tight-lipped, we are sure Cavalli will be ruing his ramblings in the not too distant future.
To be fair even the designers Cavalli does seem to like don’t get off lightly – while he anoints Marc Jacobs as ‘THE ONLY AMERICAN DESIGNER THAT I LIKE’ he also says his collections for Louis Vuitton are for ‘old ladys’.
So car-crash twitter over-share or refreshing filter-less banter? Either way we bet Cavalli is racking up record followers with his rant-arama.
