Luisa Via Roma Dinner Party

On Sunday evening LUISAVIAROMA.COM hosted a dinner party to celebrate the success of the FIRENZE4EVER event.

We all arrived decked out in our fancy dresses for the occasion.

I wore the most prized possession in my closet: my Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

The aqua dress has a silver and green panel which gives the illusion of a very narrow waist and has also been worn by Giovanna Battaglia.

I styled my dress with a Rafe clutch and a silver pair of Nicholas Kirkwood metallic peep-toes I had purchased at the sample sale last week.

I was very proud to be wearing British designers on the night.

The dinner was hosted outside at the Nuovo teatro dell’opera di Firenze on the world’s longest dining table.

After dining, we worked off the calories on the dance floor with DJ Misty Rabbit spinning the deck and a live performance from Neimo.

On Saturday, Luisa Via Roma took to the Madonna concert.

Having never been to a Madonna concert before I didn’t know what to expect.

What I saw was an amazing performance, electrifying production and I was surprised to see her son Rocco join in for some of the performance.

Madonna, at 54, was able to outdance her dancers 30 years her junior. I have a new found respect for the Queen of Pop.

After singing some of ‘Born This Way’, Madonna then went on to sing, ‘She’s not me….and don’t you forget it‘.

Meow…saucer of milk for Ms Ciccone. Go to TheBagHagDiaries to see some amazing pictures from the concert.

    To me you’re just like the Madonna of fashion! So happy for you FC.
    I saw her concert in Milan and I agree with you, she’s ageless (I loved Vogue in Gaultier, Like a Prayer, Masterpiece and Girl Gone Wild).

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 22:59 #

  24. Faelllie June 20, 2012 at 22:45 #

    The dress is gorgeous, and suits you to perfection.

    But …. no black pumps? No white shoes? No mixed metals or ugly watch? Hair not left unbrushed and make-up not done? Don’t you know that means you now have to put yourself into BDOTW?

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 23:01 #

      LOL…no way…I would be so embarrassed x

      • Sharon June 21, 2012 at 02:22 #

        I think you’re going to have to overcome your embarrassment, FC. It looks like we have an overwhelming write-in vote to nominate you for BDOTW. That’s what you get for looking so fabulous!

      • Rash June 21, 2012 at 02:27 #

  27. Hannah June 20, 2012 at 22:39 #

    You look gorgeous! The dress, the colour especially, I’m such a fan of aqua blue, is to die for. Also majorly jealous of the Kirkwoods, I wish I could have gone to the sample sale but I have exams :(.
    Glad to hear you had such a great time, you truly deserve all the perks of being such an amazing blogger!

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 23:04 #

      I spent too much at the sample sale so be glad you didn’t go 😉

    Gorgeous dress FC!

  34. CreoleLady June 20, 2012 at 22:17 #

    Swoon. BDOTW. Beautiful spring color, killer silhouette and silver peep toes. Look and weep celebs jumping ahead to fall. This is how its done. And lol about saucer of milk.

  35. Sanette June 20, 2012 at 22:16 #

    Wow, you look great! I’m completely in love with the dress.

  36. Yeliz June 20, 2012 at 22:16 #

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 22:12 #

      thanks x

  38. Molly June 20, 2012 at 22:08 #

    You look amazing! I have been lusting after that dress ever since I saw it on the runway, so right now, I have some major fashion envy! I hope you had a great time. It looks like it was a lot of fun!
    By the way, aqua is definitely your color 🙂

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 22:13 #

      It was my favourite dress of the collection. I am honored to own it.

  39. Christine June 20, 2012 at 22:08 #

    You like nice, FC! I am a bit jealous of you attending the Madge concert. Lucky girl. Glad you had fun!

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 22:13 #

      Madge was AMAZING

      • Christine June 20, 2012 at 23:08 #

    FC, you looked wonderful! Thanks for sharing this with us.

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 22:15 #

      My pleasure. I had an amazing time

  42. auntychrist June 20, 2012 at 22:05 #

    wow you look stunning.. that colour and the dress looks great on you..

  43. Marybeth June 20, 2012 at 22:05 #

    WOW! FC, you look gorgeous!
    I adore both the lines and the color of that dress.

    The model’s styling with green clutch and shoes is okay, but I much prefer your use of silver. I think it gives the whole look a feel of lightness and elegance.

    Thanks so much for sharing all of this with us!

  44. noo June 20, 2012 at 22:05 #

    FC you look fantastic! this dress somehow makes you look even taller and slimmer and i love your styling (especially the cute clutch). It’s lovely to see you out and about looking this good 😀

    • Fashion Critic June 20, 2012 at 23:20 #

      thank you noo xx

  45. Alice June 20, 2012 at 22:04 #

    The dress is stunning! And the silver accessories are a million times better than the green ones used on the runway!

    You also look amazing in turquoise.

  46. Magdalena June 20, 2012 at 22:03 #

    OMG you look amazing! I am speechless. And btw it looks much better than on Giovanna!
