80 Reasons Birthday Boy Giorgio Armani Is the World's Most Stylish Man

Jul 11 2014 - 6:00am

Happy birthday, Mr. Armani [1]! Just one day after throwing a celebration of a runway show with his exuberant Armani Privé collection [2], the designer is once again the man of the hour, as he's set to blow out 80 candles. And in the spirit of giving (this is a birthday, after all), we're feting this day with a look back at some of the most fabulous moments — because we can think of no better gift for the man who has everything than with a look back at his incredibly stylish life.
