Robert Cavalli – The Fashion Icon – was born in Florence, Italy on November 15th, 1940Cavalli is known for using wild animal prints and sexualized cuts in his design, leading to comparisons with designer Gianni Versace and his popularity with many young celebrities, such as Victoria Beckham, with whom he famously signed an exclusive dressing contract. He is also known for his lavish lifestyle. He owns several houses and villas and is married to a former Miss Universe runner-up, Eva Duringer of Austria, with whom he has had one child and two from a previous marriage.

He has been designing outfits for Shakira‘s Oral Fixation Tour, and her Red Carpet appearances as well.
