Nicolas’ Cruise 2016 show included a bevy of red-headed beauties. Most notably the show opener, Rianne Van Rompaey (bottom right), who started the show by walking out of Bob Hope’s mansion and turning the music on for the show, she was followed by fire engine red-headed Nathalie Westling. Their other auborn headed companions included Varya Shutova, Madison Stubbington, Julia Hafstrom and Magdalena Jasek.
Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli delved into a fantasy world for their spring couture show, with an ode to the opera and the animal kingdom. The opening look, a tulle gown, was embroidered with the score from La Traviata; a gray cashmere coat adorned with a menagerie of jungle creatures took more than 300 hours to finish by hand; and a cape inspired by Madame Butterfly, covered with multicolored versions of the insects made of dyed feathers, took 550 hours to create.
“Couture is an opportunity to dream for us, whereas ready-to-wear is our opportunity to give dreams to many people,“ Chiuri said. ”My conversation is with all kinds of women. I’m not just interested in dressing myself. We respect and love all kinds of individuality.”
