Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is convinced George Clooney's romance with model Elisabetta Canalis will last, because the Hollywood actor is so "in love."
Cavalli has known Italian actress /model Canalis for many years, and was one of the first people she confided in about her relationship with the Hollywood star.
And the design guru is convinced the love affair is the real thing, because he's never seen a couple so happy.
He tells Britain's Hello magazine, "George and Elisabetta are in love. They're both gorgeous, fascinating people and their romance is a dream. This couple's love story reminds you of those legendary romances of the past.
"I think I was one of the first people (Elisabetta) confided in about George. At first I did wonder how an Italian girl like Elisabetta could date such an American guy like George, but time has shown that this great love is going to last. In fact, I'd bet anything on it."
