Alessandra Facchinetti gets the boot!

Alessandra Facchinetti's gig is up. In a dramatic fashion, immediately following its runway show, Valentino confirmed the swirling rumors regarding Facchinetti's leave and announced Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, longtime accessory designers at the house, as her successors. "Absolutely nothing was selling. The traditional Valentino customer was completely alienated," said a Valentino source.

Valentino fans and industry professionals are optimistic about the newly appointed successors. "Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are madly in love with the Valentino style," said Valentino Garavani intimate Carlos Souza. Another one bites the dust.
