    Well I have to admit that he is quite a controversial figure. You may either love or hate him.
    However he deserves the credits of being often pretty original, within a business environment which has always been elegant but rather conservative too.
    In terms of look he really stands out.... besides his errand behavior.

    He often used to post here on StyleForvm under the username "Moo."

    He is truly missed.

    The Caraceni shorts were among the best pieces ever posted here.

    When you are wealthy you are merely eccentric and original. When you are poor, you are a wierdo.

    Is this what clothes does to you?

    BTW I hear he tailors his shirts with only 3 buttons.....

    Some other accessories weren't too shabby either.

    I prefer artists and loopy millionaire playboys to dress crazy.

    He's a rich trust-fund boy bearing his granddaddy's fame...

    besides, since when does fucking a dude has anything to do with style? tom ford looks good.


    tom ford looks and dresses gay. lapo looks and dresses gay. that is fine if you are gay or want to appear gay. gay it up if that is your desire and the message you want to communicate to the public. so if you are gay, tom ford and lapo would be great role models. i think that is why these type of men get so much run in the media and get named to best dressed lists etc. but just realize most well dressed straight men do not admire the appearance of these so called style icons, errrr, fashion icons. what straight man would ever want to dress in such a gay manner? doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of being a well dressed straight man?

    Lapo knows full well what he's doing. He just likes being the rebel. Agree with Barims that he actually looks pretty great sometimes.

    I don't think so. His gaze as well as his clothing look totally lost. He is just a brand monkey of his own choosing not a style leader and he should stop doing drugs. It shows.

    Au contraire. Lapo should do more drugs, if only to possibly reduce the supply reaching whnay.

    When Lapo dresses "correctly" he is unequaled, but often his ensembles can best be described as bizarre.

    theres a huge difference between fucking a guy and being homosexual

    besides, neither TF or LE t look flamboyantly gay; they are rather stylish, radical at times.
