Roberto Cavalli Conducts His Business on a 15-Year-Old Nokia Phone the Size of a Shoe

>> Roberto Cavalli doesn't like to be told no. He just celebrated his 40th anniversary in September, and when pondering the guest list, he told W in its December 2010 issue: "I will invite other designers, but they won't come — they are all sh*t."

He also hates to be told he can't do something. "I never understand why God gives the possibility to have children just to woman," Cavalli said, clutching theatrically at his belly. "Oh, my God, my dream would be to have a baby!" And: "When I go to a restaurant and they say, 'We're fully booked,' I say, 'It's Roberto Cavalli,' and they say, 'I will check.' I love it!" the designer said, clapping his hands with relish.

Cavalli, who turns 70 on Monday, definitely has his quirks — he conducts business from a 15-year-old Nokia cell phone the size of a shoe. "I bought all of the ones on eBay," he told W. And late at night, he has been writing a memoir of sorts — on his life in fashion, but more importantly to him, on the way he has fashioned his life. "I don't know what to write [about the] last 15 years," he said. "What model I have in my fashion show?"
