Fashion News Live Founder Talks Guilty Pleasures


If your name is relevant in fashion, chances are he’s caught you on camera. If you attended New York Fashion Week, you likely saw him charming guests, mic in hand. His name is Rocco Leo Gaglioti, and he’s founder, host and executive producer of Fashion News Live.

Fashion News Live Founder Talks Guilty Pleasures

What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?

When I had free time, I enjoyed going to the beach, the movies, traveling and working out. I have an extremely spontaneous personality, and I like to go with the flow.

What do you do to find calm during the crazy-filled fashion days?

If I have an hour to spare, working out is my outlet for relaxation and it de-stresses me.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Aside from food, splurging on an article of clothing for myself to complete my outfit, which makes me feel extraconfident.

I can always go for an extra-large pizza slathered with cheese. My other guilty pleasure is warming up homemade chocolate chip cookies and covering them in vanilla ice cream. I’m really an obese guy stuck in a skinny man’s body.

What was your last indulgence?

My last indulgence was during my recent trip to New York where I snagged a new pair of Marc Jacobs boots… and then I ate pizza.

What are you doing this weekend?

Friday, my amazing team is working out of our L.A. office and then we are covering events. Saturday is going to be my relaxation day, so I’ll spend time at the beach and pick out my L.A. Fashion Week outfits. Sunday I’m picking up three members of my New York crew, we’ll have a meeting, and then party it up in L.A. But, I can’t stay out too late since I have to wake up early to renew my passport at the Italian consulate.

I eat fashion for breakfast. Cashmere sweaters taste funny.
