Valentino dresses elegance Sofia Coppola’s La Traviata

He is 84 years old and just see fulfilled one of his dreams: make a Traviata at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. Valentino Garavani, the famous Italian designer, lives retired fashion since 2008 but has now resumed needles to make a unique wardrobe.

“I always dreamed to perform it in a new way,” said Valentino, “but did not want to do a modern version absurd, like many of the artistic representations that are made today, I wanted a classic and magnificent Traviata”.

It was a desired project designer and Giancarlo Giammetti and, former partner and right hand almost fifty years. His goal was to make a special, unique version.

To do so they resorted to the talent and sensitivity, Sofia Coppola, why were fascinated since they saw her film Marie Antoinette in 2006. “I asked if I wanted to do La Traviata with me and if I could give a modern touch to make it more special “said the designer.

And so it has been. Garavani has created four dresses for Violetta, the protagonist, who is played by Francesca Dotto (with Maria Grazia Schiavo as a substitute). The designs have been made in the Roman workshops of his house, founded in 1959.

Red dress, Valentino Rosso, is one of the symbols of the house and a timeless fashion(red formal dresses) icon. He never lacking in parades and fashion designer Violetta, the protagonist of the opera, brings an impressive.

The current creative directors of Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, have worked closely with professional theater workshop for making costumes Flora, played by Anna Malavasi, and choir.

“The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma is one of the representations of the heritage of our city,” said Chiuri and Piccioli that in several of his couture collections have been inspired by the aesthetics of the bel canto, as the spring of 2014, one of the most applauded.

Valentino Garavani said that this production will surprise and, despite the modern touch of Coppola, his inspiration has been the work of great artists who, in one way or another, have made La Traviata, as Visconti, Zeffirelli or Callas .

This unique spectacle can be seen at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma until 30 June. A unique opportunity to enjoy the music and fashion capitals. La Traviata, Verdi work based on The Lady of the Camellias, Alexandre Dumas, premiered in 1853 at La Fenice in Venice, but it was a major failure due to the choice of the protagonist.

Maria Callas was Violetta between 1955 and 1958, year in which he sang Victoria de los Angeles. Monserrat Caballe performed it in 1967 and Renata Scotto in 1980. Violetta has been in theaters, recording studios and film. Franco Zeffirelli directed her in 1983 and did so with Teresa Stratas and Placido Domingo in the lead roles.(semi formal dresses)

The legend is called Maria Callas. The interpretation of the diva in 1955 was a huge success and played 17 times masterfully. Thus, the Teatro alla Scala of Milan decided not to represent it again.

It was not until 1964 to again hear Violetta in Italian city, this time with Mirella Freni’s voice on the orders of Herbert von Karajan. But it was a big failure. In 2013 was Diana Danrau which got into the role and performance divided critics.

The 14 Oscars Dresses Impress more


The Golden Globes and the Met Gala always have exquisite fashion moments, but the biggest red carpet event of the year is the Oscars. It is the finale of awards season, so it is the event that celebrities save their very best dresses for and really prove their style credentials. It’s no wonder that the Oscars has given us so many memorable fashion moments. Who could forget Julia Roberts‘ black and white vintage Valentino gown, or Michelle Williams marigold dress? You know exactly the ones I’m talking about, even without any photos.

Here are 14 Oscars dresses that we are still obsessed with:

1. Michelle Williams, 2006Michelle Williams red carpet dressMichelle Williams has become known for her fashion risks, but this marigold Vera Wang shocked everyone. We knew she had great taste, but this took it to another level. The vibrant red lipstick and that loose bun were the perfect beauty look for this outfit.

2. Marion Cotillard, 2008Marion Cotillard  80th Annual Academy AwardsNo one really knew who Marion Cotillard was when she attended the Oscars, but she made quite an impression in a white fish scale Jean Paul Gaultier gown. That dress alone guaranteed that everyone would remember her for all the right reasons. It didn’t matter whether she won an award or not.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow, 1999Gwyneth Paltrow pink prom gownGwyneth Paltrow‘s soft pink Ralph Lauren inspired so many prom and wedding looks. The dress was the perfect color pink. It wasn’t too Barbie or too white. The look was simple, but it had a timeless appeal and elegance that was pure Grace Kelly.

4. Halle Berry, 2002Halle Berry floral dressHalle Berry knew she was creating an iconic red carpet moment when she chose this Elie Saab dress. Most celebs tend not to show a lot of skin at the Oscars, but Halle figured out a way to do it that was appropriate for the occasion.

5. Hilary Swank, 2005Hilary Swank red carpet dressIf a celebrity wants to create a lasting impression, they need to wear a dress that looks good from all angles. Hilary Swank’s navy Guy Laroche gown fulfilled that requirement. It looked like a minimalist long-sleeved gown from the front, then when she turned around it had a very sexy low back.

6. Cate Blanchett, 2014Cate-Blanchett-Oscars-2014When Cate Blanchett showed up on the red carpet in this embellished Armani Privé gown, she looked like someone who was about to take home an award. If you are an Oscar nominee, this is the type of dress (and jewelry) you want to wear.

7. Kate Winslet, 2002

Sometimes all it takes is one detail to captivate us. Kate Winslet‘s scarlet Ben de Lisi dress had that asymmetrical floral detail that was better than any sparkly accessory. We also can’t forget about how this dress’ fit was flawless.

8. Penelope Cruz, 2007Penelope Cruz red carpet dress

Nude dresses are very tricky to pull off. Penelope Cruz proved that it was possible to wear one without it looking like some weird naked look.This Atelier Versace dress was the real life couture version of a princess gown.

9. Charlize Theron, 2004
Charlize Theron at the Kodak Theatre in HollywoodCharlize Theron is always on best-dressed lists and based on this look, you can see why. The fit on this Gucci gown was perfect, and she managed to make it look so effortless with the minimal accessories and beach-y hair.

10. Gwyneth Paltrow, 2012

Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow gets two spots on the list. She deserves them. Everyone still obsesses over Lupita Nyong’o‘s red cape dress that she wore to the Golden Globes, but Gwyneth did it first in this brilliant white Tom Ford gown. She looked so modern and statuesque.

11. Julia Roberts, 2001Julia Roberts (Photo by Mirek Towski/FilmMagic)Julia Roberts wore this vintage Valentino dress almost fifteen years ago, but it seems like it happened much more recently. It was such a hit that it has been copied in every bridal boutique again, and again. All it needed was that contrasting white trim and sheer panel, and people were in love.

12. Keira Knightley, 2006Kiera Knightly claret prom gownKeira Knightley‘s mermaid Vera Wang gown would have still been amazing without the accessories, but that statement Bulgari necklace helped catapult this look onto every best dressed of all time list.

13. Mila Kunis, 2011Mila Kunis arrives at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards at the Kodak TheaMila Kunis‘ unconventional lilac Elie Saab dress was different compared to all of the usual style of gowns we see on the red carpet. It was romantic, sexy and made everyone want it to be spring so we could wear a dress in a similar color.

14. Nicole Kidman, 2007Nicole Kidman We’re used to seeing trains on the red carpet, but not a train from a massive bow. Nicole Kidman‘s red Balenciaga gown’s bow detail was risky (what if someone stepped on it?) but it paid off. She made it look effortless by wearing her hair down and not in an updo, like you would expect.
