So I’m in Paris for Men’s Fashion Week and headed to the Valentino show today to take in the proceedings.
I was juiced to see Victor Cruz and girlfriend Elaina Watley arrive at the show, and knew I had to catch up with them afterwards to chat style.
It’s Victor’s first time in Paris, and he already has a full schedule of shows. His favorite designers? “Givenchy mainly because [Riccardo Tisci] goes out on a limb, he does whatever he wants, and it’s relatable. Second would be Michael Bastian mainly because it suits my style, it fits my aesthetic and it’s just some really cool pieces at the end of the day.”
Has he always been into fashion? “I think I’ve always been stylish in my own world. I think I’ve never monetarily had the opportunity to be as stylish as I wanted to be, but I made it work with what I had when I was younger. And now I’m fortunate enough to be monetarily able to afford the stuff that I want to afford and dress the way I want to dress, so I’ve definitely stepped my style up over the years.”
I stepped in to take a picture with the adorable duo afterwards.
I’m wearing a Richard Nicoll dress and my Gianvito Rossi x Altuzarra ikat pumps (last worn here).
What do you think?
