Roberto Cavalli, Lina Nilson

This is what the high life looks like, folks.

Roberto Cavalli has figured out the way to beat heat, judging by this photograph of the skimpy swimsuit-wearing 72 year old being hosed down by his twentysomething girlfriend aboard his yacht while vacationing on the isle of Sardinia.

Britain's Daily Mail  identified the bikini-clad beauty as model Lina Nilson.

And if this pic of Cavalli taking a moment to clean up his, er, bathing suit area veers toward the shocking side, just know that there are other photos showing Cavalli really cleaning up—and of Nilson turning the hose on his bare bottom. 

The Italian fashion designer recently came under a bit of fire following the release of an illustration of his work for Beyoncé's world tour that featured a distorted version of Mrs. Carter's famous figure.

"Dear Fans, We would like to clarify that the image of the gown created by Roberto Cavalli for Beyonce is a sketch and not a photo, and therefore it is only meant to be a stylized and artistic vision," his design house responded to the controversy on Facebook.

"Roberto Cavalli loves women and more than anyone else has always exalted and highlighted the female shape with his creations, building his signature style on the glorification of sensuality and femininity."

And he obviously doesn't shy away from showing off the male shape sometimes, too!
