When In Rome...



On the runway...

Dress: Miu Miu
Belt: Max Azria
Pumps: YSL
~
I fell in love with Miuccia Prada's spring Miu Miu collection, and this dress, which took its inspiration from large Roman tile prints (see the two heads?), is so striking in its color palette and design (you can't see the back from these photos, but it's completely black).

On a side note, two days ago I managed to see Anne Hathaway in Shakespeare in the Park's production of Twelfth Night. For some reason, I've seen at least five productions of this play, and this one was by far the best one I've ever seen. Anne Hathaway was simply radiant as Viola/Cesario. For those of you who don't know, Shakespeare in the Park is a free, high-quality summer theatre series in New York City that attracts at least one big name each summer (Liev Schreiber enacted Macbeth recently); the only impediment is the interminable wait to procure tickets (I usually have to wait 6 hours to ensure a seat). As an added bonus, I giddily espied Hugh Jackman and Anna Wintour in the audience! (He's my imaginary celebrity husband. Wait. It's a tie between him and Christian Bale.) Oddly enough, Prince Edward (Queen Elizabeth's third son) and Miss America happened to be at my school the same day. I couldn't believe I saw five celebrities in one day!

Hello to the new Roman Goddess!
That Miu Miu dress is in one word A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! What a fantstic purchase! The belt is matching it wonderful!
The Shakespeare in the Park event sounds so wonderful, I would love to go there too :-D Even if I have to wait six hours as well for the tickets ;) And what a high cpd-rate (celeb per day)! Well, that's NYC! One of the best places in the world and where everything is possible on every day.
I'm a long term fan of Christian Bale as well. A brilliant actor who felt more attracted to the small but fine stories before. Now he's on the big screens all over the world, he's just amazing! As well as Hugh Jackman (aka your future hubby) - have you seen "Someone like you" before?
Wishing you a wonderful + sunny weekend!
xoxo, S.
PS. Perfect analyze of the Christopher Kane dresses :) and yes, i would be irritated as well if I saw Harry Potter naked on stage.... :-D

You would count as a celebrity to me!

That dress is fantastic. I have a friend going on an architectural dig in Italy later this month, wonder f she can find one of those for me...

I've always wondered how real women could wear runway clothes in the real world - looks like it is completely possible to do so and look beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration! You really have great ability to edit, and of course, great taste.

When I was little I wanted to marry Prince Edward because I'm from Prince Edward Island. I'm quite happy that I didn't, though. Sounds like a star-studded day for you!

And what a great dress!!

Oh my goodness, I love Shakespeare too, but I have never seen a play in the park! Maybe this summer.

Adore the dress. It's absolutely striking--the graphic print and contrasting colors! It looks great with your belt too!
