Like many Hollywood events, the inaugural "Rodeo Drive Walk of Style" awards ceremony was canceled last March after the U.S. went to war against Iraq.
But the show is back on. Tuesday, Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani will be in town to accept the award, a miniature bronze version of Robert Graham's "Torso" statue unveiled in June at Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way as the new symbol of the street.
One of the most influential designers of the 1980s and beyond, Armani, 69, is known for creating the power suit that so many in Hollywood have adopted as a uniform.
One of the first designers to understand the importance of the red carpet, he has dressed countless celebrities for awards shows, most famously Michelle Pfeiffer and Jodie Foster. Armani has also contributed looks to dozens of films, including "Made" (2001), "The Untouchables" (1987) and "American Gigolo" (1980).
