I Was Enchanted To Meet You:
Dolce & Gabbana created an enchanting love at first sight at their recent runway show on the Island of Capri in Italy just the other day.
Guests of all types of fabulous boarded a flotilla of little sailboats that had their prows garlanded with swag of lemon and bay leaf, and set off to the rocky beach club of the Fontelina, where the designers would unveil their fall Alta Moda collection.
Doesn’t get more fairytale than that! But it truly does!
Waiters served pink champagne in matelot shirts and guests sat anticipating what would happen next. Swan-necked Dolce model beauties, stepped out on their Capri runway barefoot in Second Empire ball gowns with tiny, jeweled, cut-velvet bodices and huge crinoline skirts with hand-painted stripes of yellow, green, blue, or red on white. Pure Luxury.
“On Capri, a woman doesn’t live the seasons,” wrote Stefano and Domenico in the beautiful little book they produced for guests, filled with images of the island and the legendary women who have fallen in love with it through the years—Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Maria Callas, Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ingrid Bergman among them. “She lives life, love and passion.”
All this event was missing was the perfect romantic Princess Diaries foot pop.
