Last night Missoni and Iman were honored as the 17th and 18th inductees, respectively, on Rodeo’s Walk of Style.
The couture clan — consisting of founders Ottavio and Rosita along with kids Angela, Vittorio and Luca and the grands, Margherita, Ottavio Jr. and Jennifer — stormed the famed Beverly Hills walkway to be presented the award by friend and eternal pimp, Quincy Jones.
Jones surprised at the popularity cum hysteria of the Missoni Target collaboration, expressed hopes of scoring one of those bikes for himself.
Meanwhile, Iman turned over the reins to Rachel Zoe for dress duties — “She does Seventies ease well, which was really my generation” – and piled on some Fred Leighton jewels for the occasion. Greeting Ottavio, in Italian no less, the icon remarked, “I modeled in a lot of Missoni shows back in the day, so we know each other well.” Of course they do.
When you’ve been turning, musing, modeling and more or less owning the world for as long as Iman, you tend to get to know everyone. [WWD]
