Cirque du Soleil

Anna Sui spring 2010 RTW fashion show, look #29
Anna Sui dress. Vintage leather belt & flower necklace. Loeffler Randall sandals.

J'adore Anna Sui… Model Snejana Onopka pranced down Ms. Sui's spring 2010 runway in this gloriously gilded frock, daring to wear it over an Easter striped turtleneck. I styled the golden orange lamé more neutrally by brown belting my waist & slipping on some studded gladiator sandals. I found this rock bead necklace at a tag sale before the dress, but its tropical flowers serendipitously mirror the material's colorful varnish: lurex starry paisley patchwork embellished with a duo of bows & thigh-high slits. I'm channeling model Jean Shrimpton on a lark to the circus (the fashion show's theme) with fiancé photographer David Bailey circa 1960.
