Just me! Just Roberto Cavalli and me

A once in a lifetime opportunity! This is what the launch of Roberto Cavalli’s autobiography is in the life of a fashionista. And, so it was for me!

During the electric Milan Vogue Fashion Night Out, stars shone even brighter over the Cavalli boutique on Via della Spiga. The master himself was there, to host a wonderful evening dedicated to his barely launched book, Just me! and to his fans – famous, or not. Supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Nadège, stylist Marta Marzotto, actresses Simona Ventura and Federica Panicucci and, of course, Franca Sozzani, the editor in chief of Vogue Italia, were there celebrating mister Cavalli (I mean, Roberto, as the designer corrected me once) and enjoying the distinct atmosphere he added to VFNO!

Because as much as the excitement was centred on his life and carrier, he hadn’t forgotten to mark the occasion with a celebratory scarf bearing his signature and the cult Vogue event’s logo.

But what I will truly carry with me from that night are the fascination of witnessing the emotional moment of a wonderful man’s seeing the world embrace the life, personal and fashion, confessions of small village Tuscan boy gotten self-made legend.

And, of course, the words written in his dedication… ‘’Janina sei bellissima.’’

Grazie mille, Roberto Cavalli!
