Luisa Via Roma FIRENZE4EVER Event Part 3

For my final ‘Style Lab’ shoot for LUISAVIAROMA.COM’s Fifth Edition of their FIRENZE4EVER event, I selected something more colourful and impactful.

Nothing has more colour or creates a bigger impact than a Roberto Cavalli dress.

The glamorous jewel-printed kaftan dress would make for the perfect evening gown.

I went heavy on the accessories for this chic draped look with a contemporary silhouette by adding Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ gold metallic crossover sandals, gold triangle Maria Francesca Pepe earrings, a LedaOtto ‘Castel del Monte’ bracelet and a Stark gold panther with Astrakhan clutch.

The makeup was a lot bolder on this occasion with smoky green eyes and a bold fuschia-pink lip colour to match the jewel tones in her dress.

I requested that her hair be styled into a top-knot as I didn’t want her glossy locks covering her statement earrings.

Even with the busy backdrop of the merry-go-round, the model and all her accessories still stood out.

The model created so much attention that even locals and tourists were taking her photo.

All of the pieces are available from Luisa via Roma

        With my resources you are so right!

    FC, I love this look! This definitely my favorite of the three. I love the bold colors and accessories. I’m also drawn to the less is more approach to sexiness of it.

      thank you. I had an amazing time…it is stressful but so much fun

    The outfits you have put together are amazing! This one is so beautiful. I also love your green playsuit – the weather in Florence looks gorgeous.

  6. Rafael June 20, 2012 at 18:12 #

    This is my favorite look love it!!!

  7. Hannah June 20, 2012 at 18:18 #

    I’ve loved a the looks, but this one was me drooling. The accessories in particular are divine, especially the clutch.
    I hope you had a wonderful time in Florence, it looks like it must have been so much fun (and so sunny)!
    P.S. I adore what you were wearing too, the cuff is exquisite. You should become a stylist!

  8. Alina June 20, 2012 at 18:25 #

    I looove the clutch!

  9. Marybeth June 20, 2012 at 18:28 #

    OMG. The colors are gorgeous and the clutch is to die for!
    I would never have thought to use gold shoes here — I would have been ultra-conservative and gone with black sandals to pick up the black in the dress.
    This is so much more alive and elegant: the gold picked up in all the accessories and the black in the clutch and bracelet.

    Can we all chip in some money to hire FC for Blake Lively (and a few others)???!!! :D

    You should’ve modeled the look! Great job

  11. Yeliz June 20, 2012 at 18:47 #

    Three stunning looks in one weekend. Not even the most of the celebrities can do that!
    I’m not a Cavalli fan, but this is fantastic! She looks flawless from head-to-toe.

    You did an amazing job FC, thanks for sharing it with us.

  12. CreoleLady June 20, 2012 at 19:02 #

    The accessories, oh my. I can’t stop at just one, want them all!

  13. Linda June 20, 2012 at 19:04 #

    J’adore!!!
    I scrolled down and thought, who’s this? Another Style Spotlight?
    This is so striking, original and colourful – it looks chic, sensual, exciting, mysterious – j’adore!!

    Now this is one eye-catching, attention holding look for all the good reasons :) I will vote for including this in best of the week contest!! Stylish, exotic and glamorous! You did a great job!

    Beautiful work! You’re taste and sense of proportion are exquisite. This looks great :)

    Now, whenever life hands you lemons, you can say to yourself “I can make a kaftan look sexy” and then hold your head high and go on about your day.

  17. Nat39 June 20, 2012 at 19:48 #

    Beautiful, the ‘heavy accessorising’ approach works really well here. My fav. of the 3.

  18. Lina June 20, 2012 at 21:20 #

    Wow, all three looks are absolutely gorgeous, but this one especially! Would love to see more of your styling. :)

  19. Christine June 20, 2012 at 22:17 #

    Gorgeous! The dress is beautiful. Good eye, FC!
