Armani a Star on Rodeo Drive

Designer to be first honoree on Walk of Style



Beverly Hills, Calif., and the Rodeo Drive Committee have chosen Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani as the first honoree on its Rodeo Drive Walk of Style. A 14-foot torso-shaped sculpture, created by artist Robert Graham, will be unveiled today at Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way on one of the country's most fashionable retail streets.

There will also be an Armani star on the sidewalk, celebrating his contribution to fashion and the movies. Other designers will be added to the walk in the future.

“He is the definition of elegance,” said Peri Ellen Berne, president of the committee, “he is the culmination of fashion and film.”

Armani's contribution to the movies is perhaps still best-known for the clothes he created for Richard Gere in the 1980 movie, “American Gigolo.” He has since been the designer for such actresses as Jodie Foster and Julia Roberts, both on and off the screen.
