PICTURE: #9 IN TWELVE ACTS

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
JEAN SHAFIROFF TALKS ABOUT HER 9th OUTFIT

 

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
This outfit was composed around a backless Carolina Herrera sequin palette halter silk gown. My accessories consisted of a plastic, spiked silver cuff that was given out as a party-favor at a charity ball. The chandelier earrings are from Van Cleef and Arpels. The shoes are silver- grey Oscar de la Renta sandals.

 

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
The dress reminds me of the Chrysler Building in New York City. I wonder if this fabulous Art Deco landmark was the inspiration for the design of this magnificent Carolina Herrera gown.

 

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
The outfit has been worn before, and hence, planned ahead of time.

 

 

On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
I rate this composition a 10.

 

 

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The dress takes on the shape of the wearer. Its intricate fabric, glamour, and historic New York elements make it especially unique.

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I will wear this outfit next winter. I don’t mind that I have already worn it a number of times . I love all aspects of it.

 

 

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 was first worn when I co-chaired the Morris Animal Foundation Gala in December 2011. I love my pets. I will always relate this dress to the gala and my love of animals.
