ROME — Louis Vuitton will unveil its first Italian maison with a star-studded event this evening that is expected to draw the likes of Cate Blanchett, Catherine Deneuve and her daughter Chiara Mastroianni.
Located in central Rome, the three-story Maison Louis Vuitton Rome Etoile will open to the public on Sunday. The site was previously one of Rome’s most iconic movie theaters, the Etoile, the city’s first cinema, which shuttered in 1991. Built in 1907 in San Lorenzo in Lucina Square, the neoclassic facade and its bas-reliefs were carefully restored by Vuitton and its longtime collaborator architect Peter Marino.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
