PICTURE: #10 IN SIXTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
LUCIA HWONG GORDON TALKS ABOUT HER 10th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Douglas Hannant cream silk cocktail dress overlayed with black lace bodice
Black silk Jimmy Choo sandals
South Sea pearl earrings, and pearl ring by Dorotea Liguori
Art deco diamond watch
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I was invited to the Douglas Hannant showroom and found this wonderful classically sexy cocktail dress.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Spontaneously, choosing shoes that caught my eye that day. Seeing that I had my pearls, I thought perfect. The cream color of the silk dress and creamy pearl would complement each other.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10! I love the classically sexy cocktail dress. This dress can look fabulous with pearls or diamonds or no jewelry!
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The bias cut silk drapes so beautifully and opens subtly when you walk. The black lace bodice and lace straps add a naughty evening element to the cocktail wear.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This cocktail dress is one of my eternal favorites. Douglas Hannant creates the most beautiful timeless dresses and gowns.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I have always admired the classically sexy and beautifully constructed dresses. Years ago when I was introduced to him, I was pregnant with twins. As soon as I lost the baby weight I jumped at his invitation to go to his showroom. I have been a fan of his ever since!
