I was with my shopping mate, Kerry this weekend at Barneys and she said,” look there is Mr. Valentino”. He was speaking with the beautiful Renee Zellweger. We wanted to take a photo with the legendary designer, as both Kerry and myself love his shoes and clothes. What could we do to woo him into a conversation and ask for a photo without being rude and intrusive? Thankfully, I had on my new black lace motorcycle boots by Valentino!

So with my most charming smile I asked Mr. Valentino what he thought of my boots and he said,” I think they are very beautiful”. Then we asked for a photo and he was so gracious and lovely to take one with us!
