I am leaving Las Vegas with a Virgin Airlines flight that will take me to London, the penultimate stop of my long journey.
I will be in London in nine hours. A private airplane is waiting for me to take me to Madrid for the opening of my new boutique. It is an event I have been looking forward to for a long time.
The Spanish market and especially the Latin one are very important for my fashion. They love the positivity of my colors.
The plane is moving and in a few seconds the hostess will tell me to turn off the phone, I never figured out if it is really necessary. On my helicopter, equally full of electronic instruments, I don’t feel the need to turn it off!
It was a long and hard week, Milan… New York… Panama… Los Angeles… Las Vegas…New York, nothing special, I went to dinner at Cipriani, I wanted to hug my dear friend Marco Revedin. After a long meeting in my showroom I left for Panama. The son of the President, Ricardo Martinelli, sent the president’s plane to pick me up. He opened a beautiful Roberto Cavalli boutique and he wanted my presence there for the inauguration.
After the ribbon cutting, I had to take a picture with so many Panamanian ladies excited to meet me and talk with me. On those occasions I feel like a “Rock Star”. It is fun, but very tiring… a smile and a compliment to everyone… I shall be charming! Besides the designer I must also show the Italian Latin Lover who loves the beautiful ladies… It is their beauty that inspires me to design and create my sexy collections!
The evening continued with a wonderful dinner in the best restaurant in Panama with the President and his entire family. I’m sitting at the right hand of the President and the First Lady is sitting to my left. A wonderful dinner with great food… the tiredness begins to take its toll… I cannot give up and I always have to look my best…
My American PR had organized a dinner for the fifty most important ladies, my biggest fans, of course! I had to brush up my whole repertoire of compliments… including a charmer look which I had not used for a very long time… Angela Mariani, my great long time PR, enjoyed seeing the happiness of all the ladies when they met me and could finally hug me with the excuse of a photo!
It is hard to describe their excitement… the entertaining evening helped me to forget how tired I was…Las Vegas is my next step. I was offered an opportunity to open a Cavalli Club in one of the most elegant and cool hotels…
I am very excited, the space that they showed me is special and I am already dreaming… a club with my name in Las Vegas… Fantastico!
I’m up in the sky… I try to sleep to make this nine hour flight shorter…
I close my eyes and I think of the many people who love me and admire me…
My life is a long dream!
I LOVE YOU
