When the thirst for clarification discriminates
Federico Fashion Style, VIP hairdresser and television personality with 1.1 million followers on Inatagram, responds to jokes and requests about his sexual orientation: "For me, in your underwear you are free to do what you want, go to bed with men and women"
He is certainly one of the most eccentric characters of the moment. Indeed, as he himself would say, more "crazy" than the moment. AND Federico Fashion Style , the glittery VIP hairdresser fresh from his success on 'Dancing with the Stars'. Federico Lauri – this is his real name – was born in Anzio, in the province of Rome, on 5 October 1989. He grew up with the art of scissors held tightly between his fingers, so much so that he opened his first beauty salon at just 18 years old.
The Anzio store is followed shortly by those in Corso Como in Milan and Sardinia. Then it lands in Rome (where it has more points of sale) and Naples. In short, a perfect businessman who juggles work and family as he has been with for a long time Letizia Porcu with whom he has a daughter, Sophie Maelle , born in 2017 via artificial insemination. But Federico is famous not so much for his role as an entrepreneur but for that of a VIP hairdresser.
After the first appearances at the ' Castello delle Cerimonie ', he debuts with a sort of reality show of his own: 'Federico Fashion Style', a program in pure Real Time style where the hairdresser, always dressed in sequins and colored sequins, between highlights and regrowth problems, becomes the guardian angel of many women, Valeria Marini included.
The program fascinates more and more audiences, followers are growing and Federico has become a true influencer on the web with the pseudonym Federico Fashion Style and well 1.1 million followers on Inatagram : from being hosted in various TV lounges we move on to a perfume of her own (Fanàtico), to her first literary effort ( ' The salon of wonders. My story, your hair, my passion ' ) , without forgetting the single with the evocative title 'I am crazy'.
And it really is crazy, at least in the exaggerated look, always poised between the chicest glamor and absolute trash. Without skirting around the topic, the VIP hairstylist has underlined several times that for his eccentric way of dressing he finds himself being pointed out and his sexual orientation questioned.
Even in 'Ballando', despite having demonstrated great ability to put herself on the line, the attention of judges and viewers was often on her sexual identity. “I go dressed like this even on the street. Sure that it happens that someone at 10 in the morning tells me 'look here, this is definitely gay '. But now I don't even listen to these people" he said during his participation in 'Ballando' explaining that " it's not that if someone dresses with sequins it means they're not straight ".
Federico also talked about his passion for fashion: "When I was a child and we went to parties, my friends showed up in tracksuits, and even then I wore jackets with rhinestones, for me it was normal because I looked good like that."
For Lauri, in short, the clothes do not make the monk : “We are free to wear what we like most. Not because someone dresses like that they have to have a different orientation, or be labeled as someone they are not. I feel good like this and I don't care about other people's judgments. Having said that, I'm straight and I really have nothing to hide."
But despite the explanations, meddlers of the genre continue to make hypotheses about Federico's sexual tastes, so much so that his partner recently intervened. “ Who questions Federico's sexual identity First of all, his words - his words - disrespect me. I don't tolerate these malignancies, we faced a tough journey to have our beautiful little girl. Being at his side is very challenging,” he recently declared Letizia Porcu an interview with the weekly 'Vero', mother by name Sophie Melle , born in 2017 thanks to artificial insemination.
Letizia is Federico's partner and was born in Anzio in 1989. She is 32 years old and the same age as Lauri. Their story has lasted 10 years. After about four years of relationship, their only daughter, Sophie Maelle, was born. At the moment the two are not married because it seems they don't feel the urgency to swear eternal love at the altar.
