Today In Totally Gratuitous: Roberto Cavalli And Azzedine Alaïa Made Couscous Together

By: Rachel Krause / May 30, 2012

I know you’re being productive right now, or trying to, but you’re going to have to stop for a second and check out this picture. Roberto Cavalli, the man responsible for ostentatious high-end clothing so tasteless it transcends taste and becomes tasteful despite itself, and Azzedine Alaïa, the man hailed world over for creating the most flattering (and, it should be said, fairly minimalist) dresses suited to the female form, converged during Cavalli’s recent trip to Paris. What resulted from this meeting of the minds was not a fashion collaboration, or a long conversation disparaging Anna Wintour (Cavalli publicly, shamelessly, awesomely slammed her last month), but couscous. They made it together! At Alaïa’s house! Quoth Cavalli on his part in the meal, “I help him set the table and serve dishes filled with the new ‘hot’ creation of a great stylist!” Yes. [Fashionista]
