Last night the lovely Markus Van Driel took me as his handbag to the DLM Photographic exhibition at the Ivy. It was a very snazzy affair and I wanted to do it justice by wearing a proper cocktail ensemble.
The last time I wore this dress was to the FLS First Birthday High Tea and a few things went wrong. It was too cold so I had to wear a coat and pantyhose, and the shoes I chose were too chunky for the dress. This time I wanted to do Mr Posen properly so I paired the dress with simple accessories, actually no accessories except earrings and a clutch purse.
I love this dress, it is so classic. I feel like Audrey Hepburn without the big glasses and hat.
Outfit brought to you by: Dress – Zac Posen, Earrings – Chanel, Shoes – Christian Louboutin, Handbag – vintage from my mother’s closet
My 300th Post!
For everyone in Sydney and coming to Sydney in February for Mardi Gras, please make your way to the Blank Space in Surry Hills for the cut-throat exhibition.
This exhibition of glamorous drag, is a highly-stylised montage of images that reflect menacing dark undertones that are highlighted by the subtle gender ambiguity: the unexpected upon closer inspection.
The bold use of colour complements the courageous, in-your-face characters that many of us would like to be but few have the courage to realise.
cut-throat features prominent Diva award winning Drag Queen, Tora Hyman, and newcomer Giselle wearing beautiful gowns from Jovani and Blue Velvet Fashion. The extremely talented and popular Drag Kings, D’Vynal and Suitor, were dressed all in vintage from Mr Stinky’s. The fantastic setting of the Barberia barber shop on Crown Street lent to the air of barber shop drama that sets the tone for this collection.
