Roberto Cavalli On Being A Straight Fashion Designer: Questions Ralph Lauren's Sexuality in Conversation

Too Funny! Cavalli on Being the Only Straight Man in Fashion

This is too amusing for us not to share! Vogue UK transcribed the below frank and very funny exchange between the king of glamour Roberto Cavalli and Colin McDowell during a Q & A session for Selfridges department store in London. Read it and try not to smile...

RC: In my planet, fashion, I’m the only straight man.
CM: There’s a few.
RC: Who?
CM: Ralph Lauren, he’s straight.
RC: Are you sure?

CM: So, does being straight make you a better designer?
RC: Yes, maybe. Because I think of how I would like to have a woman close to me, in that moment. The femininity, the softness. Maybe, yes, anyway I’m happy as I am.
CM: I think there must be a little bit of gayness in you, given the way you design for men.
RC: I take that as a compliment.
