Spring 2009 NY Highlight: Carlos Miele

Once again I give you the Big Apple's favorite Brazilian designer. This collection is said to be inspired from the vegetation of the Floarianopolis lush rain forest. The theme itself is far from being groundbreaking - the only merit being in its Brazilian heritage - but Miele's floaty chiffon gowns with their plunging necklines never cease to seduce. This season's props include splashy tropical patterns, extra-thin layering and stones sourced naturally from Brazil used around the trim of necklines, cuffs and rings.

Venice Film Festival 2008

It’s that time of the year again when international film stars and celebrities flock to venice to celebrate the 7th art. With the premiere of Matt Tyrnauer’s “Valentino: The last Emperor” a legion of the designer’s Hollywood friends came to Serenissima. The Valentino PR team certainly went to town with this one with virtually all the designs on the red carpet coming from the house of Valentino and showcased by Eva Herzigova, Claire Danes, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman to name a few.
Alberta Ferretti also did a great PR job among rising international celebrities Tilda Swinton, Ksenia Rappoport and Lika Minamoto. Here are a few shots from the city of bridges.
