When Valentino’s worldwide brand ambassador Carlos Souza travels, he travels big. He hob-nobs with celebrities, dines at fine restaurants, attends the chicest parties and fashion shows, and mixes it up with people from everywhere. He simply has a fabulous life.
On November 4, he hosted a book signing at the Valentino store in San Francisco to introduced his new Instagram book, #Carlos’s Places. At the event, which was co-hosted by designer extraordinaire Ken Fulk, the ever-joyous Carlos Souza delighted each guest with warm and welcoming conversation, followed by a signing and photos with those who purchased the book.
Much more than a simple photo book, #Carlos’s Places is a never-ending Instagram roll of Carlos’s experiences in some of the world’s chicest cities and most fabulous parties, complete with recommendations for old favorites and new classics. He covers just about every major city from New York to Paris to San Francisco, and even his hometown of Sao Paolo, Brazil. Each photo is topped off with a short description.
We were delighted to meet Carlos and thumb through his book on the night of the event. Just a few of his fabulous San Francisco experiences include:
#Golf at the Lincoln Park Golf Club
#Cotogna, where the desserts are inspired by Valentino designs
#Big Sur, a truly magical place…the perfect setting for a wedding
There are many, many more. But you’ll have to check them out in the book or on Carlos’s Instagram roll.
