Costume Ball

May 23, 2016

I can’t imagine a more enchanting evening than the opening of Sofia Coppola’s La Traviata at the Rome Opera House last night. Monica Bellucci, Bianca Brandolini D’Adda, Delfina Delettrez et. al. gathered to celebrate Coppola’s foray into opera direction. “In my life I have always dreamed of doing a new version of La Traviata” said Valentino Garavani, who designed costumes for Violetta and Flora.“The great masters, from Visconti to Zeffirelli, from Callas to Piero Tosi have inspired me in my new endeavour.” Coppola, dressed in a floor length black lace Valentino, reminiscent of one of Flora’s gowns, has said that her Italian heritage provided inspiration throughout the process. “I wanted to bring out the personal side of the French courtesan –– the party girl used to the social scene. It’s a very feminine world that I love.”
