175. A Tuscan in America…

Definitely, my confidence is higher in America than in Italy… I know it is absurd.  Perhaps it is because English is not my mother tongue and so I can get away with everything!

I have participated in many shows in America.   One of my fondest memories is of  “AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL” with Tyra Banks, in addition to the special memory of her beauty… unique… indescribable!

It was fun, Tyra paid ​​me many compliments…
She liked to play with my deep voice and told me that I had given a different “tone” to her Show…

The director asked me if I would host a TV show of my own in the future!  I cannot forget the cover of the New York Times, a whole page with my photo!

The next morning I was awakened by a thousand phone calls congratulating me!  Unfortunately my joy and fame lasted only a few hours because the next day there was the attack on the twin towers. It was September 9, 2001.

America began to love me!  Linking my colorful and positive character to the positivity of my collections.

The Italians of America chose me to represent Italy on the celebrations of Columbus Day…

I’ll tell you the rest of this story tomorrow…

Un grande abbraccio…

I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli
