Giorgio Armani has been nominated to become an Italian “senator for life“. The fashion designer was put forward for the prestigious role by Santo Versace who says it is a thoroughly deserved honour. He said: “There is nobody that deserves it more or who better represents our country. He has earnestness, creativity and excellence. Armani embodies the beauty of Italy, the country the way we would like to see it represented around the world, and where meritocracy is fully applied.”

Santo also revealed his sister Donatella – who is Versace’s creative director – is behind the nomination. He told WWD: “She said it was a brilliant idea, fantastic and that I should do everything I can to promote it.”There can be five “senators for life” at any one time in Italy, alongside the 315 elected senators who also serve in parliament. President Giorgio Napolitano has not yet appointed a senator for life during his tenure and there is currently one post vacant. Good luck Giorgio, we think he’d make the world a more fashionable place.
