The diva loves Chanel – La diva ama Chanel

From Salzburg to Vienna to Warsaw, where an important opera event took place on September 1st – Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. The protagonists of the event were the sopranos Mariana Petcheva and Carmen Giannattasio. Mrs. Petcheva wore a black dress with lace and sequin bodice and silk full skirt. On the other hand, Carmen Giannattasio surprised the audience wearing a sophisticated black and white dress by Chanel Haute Couture. The dress, made of white silk, has pleats on the bodice and skirt. The neckline (accented by a classic Chanel bow), armholes, waistline and bottom of the skirt are trimmed with contrasting black silk. A dress of great elegance and originality that recalls some early 1900s designs of the Queen of French fashion. “I love this dress so much,” – said a glowing Carmen – “because it was chosen for me by Karl Lagerfeld himself. It’s an almost unique piece. Hilary Swank wore something similar at the Cannes Film Festival some years ago.” This is what happens when movies, music and fashion come together, creating a perfect combination!

Da Salisburgo a Vienna a Varsavia: anche qui la serata del primo settembre è stata caratterizzata da un evento lirico: la Messa da Requiem di G. Verdi con la Warsaw Philarmonic Orchestra. Protagoniste della serata le soprano Mariana Petcheva e Carmen Giannattasio. La signora Petcheva, per l’occasione, ha indossato un abito nero con corpetto in pizzo illuminato da paillettes e ampia gonna in seta. Carmen Giannattasio, invece, ha stupito con un ricercato abito black and white firmato Chanel Haute Couture. L’abito, in seta bianca, è composto da un susseguirsi di pieghe che, partendo dalla scollatura rotonda, arrivano a comporre anche la gonna. Scollo (con classico fiocco Chanel), giromaniche, puntovita e fondo della gonna sono evidenziati con applicazioni in seta nera. Un modello di grande eleganza ed originalità che ricorda alcuni abiti creati dalla signora della moda francese agli inizi del ‘900. “E’ un abito a cui tengo moltissimo” – racconta radiosa Carmen – “perchè è stato scelto per me da Karl Lagerfeld in persona. Un modello pressocchè unico” – continua – “un altro, con dettagli diversi, è stato indossato dall’attrice Hilary Swank in occasione di un Festival a Cannes”. Quando cinema, musica e moda creano un connubio perfetto!
