MILAN — Evolution over revolution — that’s what accessories designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli plan for Valentino’s ready-to-wear now that they’ve been given sole creative control of the iconic Italian fashion brand.
Chiuri and Piccioli were tapped Friday to replace Alessandra Facchinetti, who was abruptly dismissed as creative director after a week of feverish speculation surrounding the company during the Paris shows. Facchinetti lasted only two rtw collections and one couture season. Her firing ironically came after a well-received second effort for the house last week.

"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.
