Dear Shaded Viewers,
I just arrived, after a grueling 10+ hour flight, back in NYC this morning from Carnaval in Rio and somehow I managed to drag myself over to Victor de Souza's show at the lovely Egyptian restaurant Casa La Femme in the West Village.
The hair (Danilo) & makeup (Francois Nars in the flesh) were to die for and the couture-style clothes were beautiful. Indeed it was not an understatement that Victor's girls were, in the designer's words, "of an alternate universe."
Fashion & culture writer Katharine K. Zarrella. I love her vintage monkey-fur coat (from the 1920s) & told her it reminded me of Diane's beautiful monkey coat.
Michelle Harper brings a touch of the gamine to her Gaga routine.
