Notte d'Estate


Notte d’estate, originally uploaded by Grazia Horwitz.

I used to love the summer nights in Rome. Standing in the dark at the Piazza di Spagna, or the Piazza Navona, watching the world’s top models strutting their stuff on the open air catwalks. The Spanish Stairs in Rome are an amazing decor for a fashion show… I think I liked those better than the ones at Piazza Navona. When I say top models, I mean top models. I’ve seen them all there… Claudia, Linda, Naomi, Christy, Helena, Tatjana, Cindy, Eva… and the beautiful designs of Armani, Gianfranco Ferrè, Valentino (i’m going to make that pose… I swear I will) and good old Gianni Versace (when the maestro was still around, not what it has become under the hands of the über tanned Donatella). Aaah.. oh well.. those were the days. I haven’t been in Rome for years now, and since we don’t have the Italian television station on our network anymore, I don’t even know whether these summer night fashion shows still take place. But when I was at Baiastice earlier, and saw this pretty Notti d’estate gown… I simply could not resist. The name alone triggered too many dear memories. And the design of the dress for me reflects the timeless elegance that above mentioned designers stood for. I usually am not a fan of satin, but this one looks pretty good I think. The set also includes a cocktail dress and the jewelry is from Baiastice too.

Hair is Tia, from Exile, and I’m wearing Kim theupcoming release from PXL Creations.
