Update: Roberto Cavalli Creative Director Rumor a Hoax!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We got an email from Christopher Michael, the originator of the rumor about Roberto Cavalli getting a new creative director, that the whole thing is a hoax. Michael writes: "It appears the joke was to see how fast it would be tweeted, only in the end it was not even true."
