Renowned Italian-Venezuelan journalist, radio and television host, Caterina Valentino, has taken to social media and conquered the hearts of thousands with her “VIP” etiquette video series on Instagram. Through the dozens of now viralhow to videos — shared weekly with her more than 2.2 million followers and posted on the site’s “Reels” feature — Valentino offers quick tips & powerful advice on “how to” display proper etiquette when “sipping a cappuccino at a five star restaurant, walking down a staircase at a fancy hotel, or getting out of a car in the most ladylike way,” and much more.

Valentino, who in 2019 was granted the prestigious “Ordine Stella D’Italia Cavaliers” award — the highest distinction awarded by the Italian government — for her work as both a journalist and an ambassador of Italian culture in the world, says it’s her goal to show fans and followers, “fun, easy and simple ways” that will help them become the best versions of themselves. An easy feat for a seasoned media professional like Valentino, who in 30 seconds or less, teaches how to do just that and more: not sure how to properly hold a wine glass at the dinner table or how to set the table when having guests over?, with Valentino’s VIP series, you’ll get a step-by-step “how to” that’ll have you doing all your daily activities the “VIP” way.

“I come from humble beginnings and managed to get ahead with a lot of work, effort and discipline,”said Valentino. “Now, I want to share everything I’ve learned throughout these 26 years or so years of my professional career, so that people can continue to learn and grow with me. As humans, we’re constantly evolving and learning and it’s up to us to do the work to create the best version of ourselves.
