I don't remember it too. I guess that there was a market: some shoes against a bit of publicity. Wasn't PG's name linked to Tod's in the past?

He will always be a handsome man - he was a pretty boy, now he continues to blossom into a handsome man (prefer him w/more hair - NO facial hair!!); I think the shorter hair shows his incredible facial features, but he's sexier with longer, tossled hair. I'm glad we're getting more pictures of him.

Andrea Casiraghi lost his driver licence this afternoon after having being caught while he was driving at a very high speed: 125 mph, while the limit was 80, 8 (or 68, 35 if it was raining). Source: le Figaro.
He will probably be fined and will have to wait before he gets his licence back (he could theoretically wait three years. According to one of the press reports, he had to finish his journey by train.

Oh how tragic it would be for him to be in an automobile accident like our beloved Princess Grace and the scars that Princess Stephanie may still carry today.

Think so as well. I hope he learns a lesson from the consequences.

Here's a link to the news:

I think he is the simplest of the Casiraghis.
Unfortunately, people will think he is a douche because he has lost his driver licence. Happens to lots of people.

I have nothing against Andrea Casiraghi, but 200 km/h (125 mph) is definitely too much and loosing a driver licence after such an infraction does not happen to "lots of people". It is regarded as a severe infraction in France and he could be sentenced to jail if it happens once more. Most likely, people are loosing driver licence after lot of smaller infractions.

It's ok. I wasn't talking about you precisly, not anyone from this forum. Is just a general impression Andrea makes wherever i read.
But i do agree with you, it's very dangerous to drive at 200 km. Quite irresponsible. Here in Argentina they don't take you away the licence, but you do have to pay an important amount of money for having done it.

Last year i remember there was an article that said that Andrea suffered an automovilistic accident the night of the Rose Ball. But i don't know if it was true.
Maybe it was, because this news makes me think of it.

I had absolutely no idea of an impression Andrea may make on forums and newsgroups so I just wanted to post an information I read tonight. No harmful intention towards this young man intended

Well it's good that he wasn't hurt and that nobody else was involved. Driving at 125/mph is simply insane.

Yes, and anyone who does that has no regard for his own life or anyone else's. I can't help but wonder about the judgment and character of anyone who has that little concern for the safety and well-being of himself, any passengers, and any people that could be on the road that day.

At that speed, ANYTHING can cause a fatal crash. A bit of debris in the road, an animal running out by the car, and you have an accident like the one that killed Ryan Dunn (American reality tv star) and his passenger. And luckily, that was a one car accident, because any other cars involved would have lead to more deaths.

I'm glad he lost his license and I hope it teaches him a lesson in responsibility.

If he wants to drive that fast he should switch to the German autobahn.

Yes, that speed is unsafe and unacceptable suppose he hit someone, or another driver?! I mean, he/his family can pay to get him out of trouble, so hopefully this doesn't become any sort of norm for him.

I actually didn't know anything about Andrea Casiraghi until reading this, because Charlotte is the only Casiraghi I really follow. Between this and the way Charlotte manages her horse riding hobby, I'm beginning to believe they're spoiled rich kids without much in the way of character. Which is a shame- they've been given everything, and it'd be nice to seem them use their many gifts to do some good in the world. Charlotte's not doing anyone any harm, she's just being rather foolish- but Andrea is actually putting himself and others in danger because he's too selfish to consider the possible consequences of his actions.

That's upsetting. Makes it very hard to like him.

Andrea is a very nice boy, and i knew people would start to attack him for news like this.
Yes, the speed was very high, but that doesn't make him the worst person in Earth. How many people drive at that speed? Why not liking him because he drives so fast?
It was irresponsible, if the news was true, poor guy is always blamed for everything.

Driving at high speed doesn't make him spoiled! What is the conection?

Well, that all depends. What kind of car was he driving in that gets up to that speed easily? And how did he pay his legal fines?

Young rich guy driving recklessly and aggressively in a luxury sports car paid for by family money is a pretty old story as far as spoiled rich kids go.

So, according to your way of thinking, if his family has lots of money, and he can buy a luxury car, and drives at high speed, that makes him spoiled? Are you expecting him to buy a regular car with all that money he has? He can have any car in the world. Why buy an average Joe's one?

Besides, (and i'm not justifying him because what he did was wrong, indeed) according to the articel, he was driving in the freeway, which was made to drive a little faster. Not that faster, but fast.

If you say you never follow Andrea Casiraghi and you made your mind for having seen this only news, without knowing that he, for example, always organize every year a charity ball for Fondation Motrice, that is attracks no paparazzi attention unlike her sister, that has a very private life...i think you are misjudging him for one news you have read of him, that we don't even know if it's true.
