I am continuing my Valentino obsession this week after reading my new favorite book. In fact, there might be a weekly Valentino post from now on.

I also found the special edition of the same book on Amazon priced up to $5,000! Same book – but more special. I’m sure Anna Wintour has it.

However, nothing will ever top the New Yorker piece from 2005! Amazing! Please read.

On Galliano: “He is a great artist He can create the biggest fantasy in the world. But to wear those clothes in the street? I don’t think so.”

On Paris Hilton: “I don’t like her. She is marrying the son of a friend of mine. They have billions. She is vulgar and she is not even pretty.” He was silent for a moment. Then he added, dismissively, “The Hiltons. They have nothing.”

Specter, Michael.
