Bulgari celebrated the re-opening of its redesigned London flagship on New Bond Street, with a red-carpet affair inspired by Italian glamour, on April 14. A number of famous faces were present to fete the redesigned store, including brand ambassadors Luke Evans and Carla Bruni.
Guests were treated to a performance by Italian soprano Carmen Giannattasio, who sang “O mio babbino caro” from Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi accompanied by a live piano performance by Angelo Villano.
The primadonna wore an original creation by Antonio Riva, her favourite designer. This gown has a wide neckline, long loose fitting sleeves with high cuffs and flowing skirt with an overlay of silk layers, final trawling.
Bulgari jewels, of course. Serpenti collection parure: bracelet with pear-shaped and pavé diamonds in pink gold; necklace in pink gold with two pearshaped diamonds and diamond pavé. Italian charm and beauty!
