Giorgio Armani is finally going to Los Angeles. The designer has scheduled his rain date to receive the first “Rodeo Drive Walk of Style” award in Beverly Hills for Sept. 9, after the original Oscar Week presentation was canceled during the war on Iraq. Armani’s engagement is expected to be announced at today’s unveiling of Robert Graham’s 14-foot sculpture, “Torso,” which stands as the new centerpiece of the Walk of Style at the intersection of Dayton Way. The event is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz and W, WWD’s sister publication.
