125 Years of Italian Magnificence Bulgari au Grand Palais


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last night was the vernissage for the '125 Years of Italian Magnificence Bulgari' at the Grand Palais. The exhibit pulls out all of the stops showcasing Bulgari jewelery from the past 125 years. I particularly enjoyed the Elizabeth Taylor room and based on all of the people there when I finally squeezed through, I don't think I was the only one to feel this way. The exhibit opens today and runs through the 12th of January 2011.

The center of the exhbit was this massive structure made of dark colored mirrors reflecting the ceiling of the Grand Palais.

Elizabeth Taylor intensely looks down upon visitors perusing the Bulgari items that she's worn over the years.

I am off to celebrate my birthday.

Until next time,
