NOT The Sartorialist


I cannot imagine The Sartorialist stopping and whipping out his camera for this model of style and grooming. Thankfully someone else did.
Last weekend, when Flavio Briatore, Renault F1boss, and co-owner of QPR, married former bra model Elisabetta Gregoraci, the groom chose to wear a pair of rather bizarre-looking slippers, each bearing the initials "FE", reported to stand for "Flavio" and "Elisabetta." How sweet. From here
Did Briatore, perhaps have them embroidered as a sort of emergency crib sheet, so that he wouldn't forget the name of his bride as he knelt at the altar and took his vows? It's a possibility. After all, he has dated some of the world's most beautiful women - including models Naomi Campbell, Adriana Volpe and Heidi Klum (with whom he had a child) - and it would be easy to get confused.
He must have the wittiest, most sparkling personality ever. He must be a wonderful tender lover, for how else do you explain the attraction of a man who is happy to look like this in public? Oh, there is the money of course, but what woman would be that shallow?
However even wealth cannot stop the age old problem of wearing 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time as he explains.
"You have 50 pair of jeans, but you wear only two of them. You have 200 suits but you wear only five."

I have seen slippers like those before on a *famous movie director* of a similar age/cheesiness/list of conquests - maybe they're the new medallions or they make it easier to hop from limo to yacht in comfort??
