Fashion Hippo recently had a conversation with Mom (Mama Hippo that is) about grand gestures, during which Mama Hippo mentioned that Vladimir Doronin’s gift to Naomi Campbell was a grand and beautiful gesture. (Read the full story here.)
Fashion Hippo, however, thinks that it was equivalent to a bouquet of flowers, well..may be not flowers, but a relatively inexpensive earrings… A gesture? Yes. A grand one? No…at least not for Vladimir Doronin.
So while to us mortals, $18.5 millions is a lot of dough, to Doronin this is small chunks..Also “GRAND Gesture” encapsulates meaningful, which is not the same as monetary.
