THAT (Green) Dress!!!!
We interrupt our regularly scheduled program to bring you this special message.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all of my Irish friends (including those of you with Irish roots). In keeping with my annual efforts to post something "green," I offer you that dress exceptional dress spotted on last month's Academy Awards' red carpet. Worn by Scarlett Johansson, the Atelier Versace gown wasn't so much a standout by it's rather simple design as it was for its color.....EMERALD green!
In the United States, one rarely sees green dresses in the stores because, according to many buyers, the American market doesn't find it to be a flattering tone. You'll find this same phenomena elsewhere in the world like.....Asia. What you, the consumer don't see is that, after the catwalk shows, there are meetings amongst the design houses, magazine editors and the retail buyers to determine what will actually be ordered. In many cases, this means the clothing we see online or in some newspapers will be changed to suit the tastes of the various markets around the world. But this sublime, jewel of a dress and its statement necklace was part of Versace's Haute Couture line and as such, there are no market constraints to consider. Like that, we were able to see such a beautiful color grace a most prestigious red carpet which inspired the Dolly version worn by Muriel.
And now we return you to your regular scheduled program......... We'll be right back with Paris Fall trends part II!
