PICTURE: #2 IN TWELVE ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
JEAN SHAFIROFF TALKS ABOUT HER 2ND OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
The black and emerald green silk dress is by Oscar de la Renta. I added long black leather Giorgio Sermoneta gloves for drama. The other accessories chosen were black satin Christian Louboutin pumps and a black faux- diamond bow Tiffany & Co. clutch. The faux-emerald drop earrings are by Jennifer Miller.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love the shape of the dress and its striking green geometric pattern. l adore the style of the late Audrey Hepburn and added the gloves in remembrance of her. I decided to purchase the faux-emerald drop earrings after seeing a similar pair worn by Angelina Jolie.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
This outfit was worn when I first met Iké Udé . I decided to wear this in honor of our friendship.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
I would give the outfit an 8. I would give Iké Udé a 10!
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The colors are classic. The brushed silk is subdued. The fit of the dress is young. The dress has a great geometric but flattering shape.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I will wear this outfit only in Fall or Winter and will wait several months before wearing again.
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?
This outfit has great emotional and spiritual meaning and represents a new friendship.
Above, a detail showing the sumptuousness and richness of Jean’s green and black number by de la Renta. Notice the sheen of her long leather gloves, the gleam of it all. And to boot, the black faux- diamond bow Tiffany & Co. clutch. What wit! Lets drink to that!
