AmfAR recently took place, a gala specially made to raise money for important AIDS research. The event took place during the 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival and was hosted by Queen Latifah, who paid tribute to 18 iconic moments in fashion history.
For this moment, joining the glamour and the classic air that only Cannes has, I chose an iconic look by Patrícia Bonaldi, an amazing Brazilian designer, owner of the PatBo brand!
It is impossible not to be charmed by this ombré dress handmade by a talented team of couture artisans, part of the brand’s new Spring Summer 2023 collection.
Delivering a striking, daring and super elegant shape, this and other pieces in the collection feature powerful references from the 1960s and even elements from the 1970s, with lots of shine, fringes and cutouts that recall the glamor of productions from those eras.
To get in the mood and let the dress stand out, I chose a classic ponytail with a half moon side bang that reminds me of the classic hairstyles from that era.
In midi length, my dress was made to order in 45 days and has ombré glass beads and crystals that form beautiful fringes, being fully lined underneath – which creates an optical illusion.
In addition, this piece has details that make it even sexier on the body, such as a long V-neckline in the bust area and a deep closure that goes from the neck to the end of the back.
What detail most surprised you about this look?
