Maybe the Senate of Fashion, but the Italian Senate? Really?
Versace sent a letter to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano saying: "Armani is the best candidate to receive the nominee for senator for life. The image of our country would’ve been very different without" Armani's success in fashion.
Donatella Versace's brother just so happens to be a member of the lower house of Parliament, so maybe that could help Giorgio land a seat.
Even if Armani gets the seat, which could be appointed by Italy’s president as a “senator for life” recognizing the designer's lifetime achievements, he's 75 years old and as of late hasn't been in great health.
But, Santo believes Armani is the man for the job saying: "No one can do a better job than Giorgio Armani in showing the beauty of Italy — the Italy that we desire."
If anything that's quite a compliment from a competitor.
Congrats on the nomination King Giorgio!
