Sci-Fi Shimmer

Working from a gemstone inspired theme, Giorgio Armani presented his Spring/Summer 2011 Privé Collection last night to a packed house at Espace Vendome.  Almost from another planet, the closely articulated and curved silhouettes underscored a vision from outer space. Intense and vivid colors of red, blue and green predominated on a mainly metallic fabric which was a beautifully crafted silk, cut on the bias.   Front row were Sophia Loren, Jodie Foster, and Cameron Diaz. A very exclusive dinner followed at the ultra-chic Le Mathis bar/supper club as we all floated back down to earth.
