ROME — In a tribute to the Eighties and the special bond between Bulgari and Andy Warhol, the Rome-based jewelry brand unveiled its new haute joaillerie collection “Wild Pop” here on Thursday at the stunning Renaissance Villa Farnesina frescoed by Raffaello. To showcase the collection, though, Bulgari re-created a colorful set inspired by the extravagant decade. Power suits and shoulder pads left room to the “Magnificent Green Ruffles” necklace set with an exquisite 34,12 carat Colombian emerald, inspired by some retro fashion advice courtesy of the Dynasty character Alexis Carrington, who said “When in doubt, add some ruffles to your dress.”
Cosmetics entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury came face to face with one of her inspirations when Queen Elizabeth handed her an MBE, or Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, at Buckingham Palace earlier today. #wwdbeauty
Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
