Miranda Kerr, Stefano Tonchi Show Support at Just Cavalli’s New SoHo Flagship

Walking into Roberto Cavalli’s new Just Cavalli Store in SoHo is like taking a little break from reality and entering the world of gold encrusted animal prints. Being lured with bubbly and a signature martini featuring Mr. Cavalli’s namesake vodka is certainly an element that helped with that.

The Italian designer pulled out all the stops for the opening of his ultra glam shop at 434 West Broadway, just steps away from Cipriani Downtown. A quick fashion show engulfed the crowd as models strutted looks from Just Cavalli’s collection through the entire store, ending outside in the freezing cold as they posed for photos with Roberto. A match made in heaven! A shopping spree at Just Cavalli and a bellini spree at Cipriani’s. I’ve probably already made your Saturday plans!

Inside the shop, Miranda Kerr barely posed for photos, as she was too busy lounging in V.I.P. of course. The scene was getting pretty nostalgic… Heather Graham was making small talk with former “Runs House” star Angela Simmons… I wonder what that conversation consisted of. Making a commotion when he walked in, Jonathan Cheban showed up sans Kim Kardashian- what a let down. And all W‘s Stefano Tonchi had to do was christen the space with his glorious presence.

Walking up and down glass staircases covered with translucent snake print is something everyone should do at least one time in their lives. The flagship store carries ready-to-wear, runway pieces, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. Stop by to get your print-fix.

Watch Roberto Cavalli Drink Vodka With His Exotic Parrot

Roberto Cavalli is glamorous, gaudy and filthy rich. The Italian fashion designer wears a bedazzled crucifix around his neck and has a stainless steel kitchen stocked with fresh produce from exclusive farms. He’s constantly surrounded by $100 gold-wrapped vodka bottles, which the Italian fashion designer doesn’t have to pay for because, after all, he created them. But don’t be fooled by Cavalli’s over-the-top lifestyle. Although he likely spends million on marketing his Roberto Cavalli Vodka, he’s not above promoting it himself—as long as he can bring his extremely exotic parrot.

In a new video for Purple TV, the designer demonstrates how to pour a perfect Cavalli cocktail, which consists of vodka, lemon juice, triple sec and liquid sugar. Prior to beginning the lesson, Cavalli says that this cocktail "is the number one cocktail in my club in Milano, in my club in Miami, in my club in Dubai," lest we forget that he is superior to us. He then adds two shots to the shaker (one for his "beautiful girlfriend"), along with the rest of the ingredients, continuing to stress that his girlfriend will not be left out.

After pouring his pristinely crafted libation, he whispers "I love you" and "Ciao" to the camera before taking a sip. So suave, that Cavalli! His beautiful girlfriend never does show up to claim her drink, but his exceptionally well-behaved parrot was a prime stand-in. Watch it all here.
