Roberto Cavalli catapulted to the spotlight when screen goddess Brigitte Bardot wore one of his colorful creations in Saint Tropez—and he’s remained a star ever since. Cavalli is synonymous with drop-dead glamour and jet set flair. His signature goddess gowns are lavishly draped and embellished for an unabashed, sexy finish. Trained as a painter, he’s a master of color and prints, mixing an intoxicating array each season, from wild leopards to vivid paisleys. Megastars like Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Heidi Klum lust after his Midas touch. The full range collection includes ready to wear, jeans and accessories, but center stage always belongs to his red carpet dresses and knockout cocktail numbers, which guarantee star wattage.
