Night of the Diva




If I could live my whole life in evening wear, pampered, made-up, and elegant, oh, how much I would! When I was a child, I used to think that I would make formal wear an obligatory dress code in my house (and yes, I also had a bit of an obsession with weddings, but that's a different story).

In any ways, yesterday, before the Oscars, I decided to create the look I would actually wear at a formal occasion (there were many in DC, embassies and such, but not so much in Montréal). I gasped when I saw this gown by Zac Posen, because it is SO similar to the one Maria Callas wore in the legendary Covent Garden Tosca, produced by Zeffirelli.  (You can see the original gown here, and worn by Callas here). 
For me, it is the ultimate formal attire: elegant, classic, timeless, and spectacular. So naturally I decided to style the gown with gold, pearls, and diamonds. As finishing touches, red lipstick and nail polish bring chic sophistication, huge eyelashes, (which, as I always say, are a must!) and finally, a fur throw, to add some Old Hollywood glam diva touch!
