1. Calvin Klein lol

2. Score one for the "good guys"? Are gay fashion designers super villains?

Valentino is with his life partner Giancarlo Giammetti & Calvin Klein is Bi-Sexual, he was dating a Male Model/Porn Star recently.

^ What is it with the designer/porn star pairings ... it's getting to be like models + rockers.

I too take issue with equating straight men with good guys. I give you Donald Trump as exhibit A ...

Haha you're right, on the top of my head I can think of Calvin Klein, Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs. Are there any more?

Also, Lacroix is bi, but we already had that.

Karl Lagerfeld is definitely gay, even though it seems kinda hard to tell nowadays. Look at him in the nineties, he was extremely flamboyant. And if you look at him in the seventies it's even more obvious. He was hanging around with a lot of gay people (Andy Warhol, Antonio Lopez) plus, he was in this video made by warhol from the seventies.

video dot google dot com/videoplay?docid=5758212800748544886

but I have a question about Raf, does anyone know if he's gay, bi or straight? i heard he was with some woman but i'm not sure.

Oh yes, I forgot about his 'Mr Stag' ... I read that the guy was called Aiden Shaw, an infamous porn star at one point... not that I would know
I did also read that McQueen also liked to be dominated in the bedroom, this was reported in the Isabella Blow autobiography 'Blow by Blow' by Detmar Blow, there was another harrowing report in that book regarding Lee, but it is too distressing to write about here, Isabella was also very furious with the way he treated himself with partners, possibly linked to the domination etc, I think that is pretty obvious from the many interpretations of domination over his infamous collections.

Marc also dated Jason Preston, another porn star, around 2006-2007.

He was dating a porn star, Harry Louis, not too long ago... I think it was around June-August.
