Funny Valentine

Valentino Red dress (last worn HERE). Valentino Mary Janes.
Eyelet dress with crazy clown collar used to be even more of a layered cake until I removed a few frou - now there seems to be a T-shirt underneath. Ostentatious ornamentation = Baroque or Rococo art...
CLOWNING AROUND: Watteau, Pierrot
Watteau's Pierrot is a stock character from Commedia dell'Arte (improvised comedic theatre) & perhaps his self-portrait. We view the painting from below, watching Pierrot perform center stage: a hauntingly static sad clown glowing white light in a ruffled collar romper, reminiscent of my mille-feuille neckline.
