It sounds like Tina Turner stole the show at Giorgio Armani on Monday. The singer hit the Emporio Armani front row in Milan last week and made another appearance for the designer's namesake line. Women's Wear Daily reports that Turner was greeted by photographers and "walked in to a sound track of her own performances and another round of audience applause." Wow! She also hobnobbed backstage with the likes of model Elisa Sednaoui, who remarked, "My great aunt always said [Turner] had the most amazing legs."
Oh, yeah. Then there were the clothes. From the Associated Press:
The new Armani black suit exudes class with its double-breasted tiny buttoned long jacket paired with a wide trouser cut, cuffed at the ankle. Another jacket in soft pleated fabric buttons up the back recalling a couture blouse.
There is a soft fluid feel to the collection, with its long skirts and dresses which caress the body but never hug it. Colors range from black, pewter and brown to romantic powder pink.
Fabrics including velvet, silk and chiffon, researched for super softness, complete the look. Footwear is ultra feminine with peep toe satin heels embroidered in lace and satin embroidered short boots.
The designer decorated his collection with a myriad of sequins and lurex fabrics, a trend seen on many runways over Fashion Week. But at Armani, glitter sparkles rather than dazzles. Elsewhere, showy jewelry jazzes up downplayed styles, but at Armani rock crystal and filigree do the job.
