More coming your way from the Cavalli Chronicles. As we mentioned yesterday, not only is Roberto's Just Cavalli line under water, likely not to resurface, but the designer also been slapped with a lawsuit by Ittierre -- the production and licensing company that makes Just Cavalli. Despite these woes, Cavalli still found time to throw a star-studded celebration to launch his eponymous credit card. Yes, the snake-skin one.
Held at the Franco Parenti theater, Cavalli invited 300 guests to help him celebrate, one guest even exclaiming at the site of the immense amount of animal print, "I feel like I'm living in this guy's soul." Elizabeth Hurley, Sarah Ferguson, Milla Jovovich and CIS's Gary Dourdan all showed up, each worth mentioning simply for what was to be learned from them:
-- A portion of every sale made with Cavalli card will benefit the charity Sarah Ferguson founded, Children in Crisis. At least there's something redeemable about a snake skin card and lavish party to celebrate it.
-- Jovovich not only appeared in a special tribute video with Cavalli at the party, but she'll also appear in a viral campaign for the card again with Cavalli and..a Rolls-Royce?
-- Most surprisingly is the fact that Gary Dourdan announced that he's mulling over his own apparel line because his mother was a seamstress.
