Cannes 2012: back to the Dolce Vita

The 2012 Cannes film festival is about to end, and everyone in the industry is getting ready for  this evening gala ceremony,  where once again the Palme d’Or will be awarded to the best picture. For us who love fashion it’s time to vote for the best dressed celebrity…difficult choice, as we have seen so many stunning gowns on the red carpet!

But surely among all the  stars’ looks one stands out: it’s  Bianca Balti, dressed in an incredible Dolce & Gabbana black multicolored floral gown. She made a memorable entrance at the festival with all the glamour of a proper  diva, just back from the Dolce Vita. Bianca  is Dolce & Gabbana’s new muse, as the super model also appears in the designer’s 2012 spring summer campaign. Her Italian beauty definitely recalls the divas of the 50’s, and the model/actress has been compared  many times to the iconic Sophia Loren. The dress is inspired to the atmospheres and colours af Southern Italy, which is also the distinctive sign of Dolce & Gabbana spring summer collection for 2012.

Subtle make up and jewelery, black nail polish, and a natural curly updo hair style complete and balance this very sensual and dramatic look.

It’s almost July and I feel like the whole word but me is going on holiday!
Talking about holiday, Italy has countless beautiful places that are worth a visit.  In the south  west of Italy, in the region of Campania and not far from Naples, a must-go place is the Amalfi coast, wich is also an UNESCO world heritage site. On the Amalfi coast, linked by a stretch of road considered by many as one of the most scenic in the world, there are several picturesque villages overlooking a crystal blue sea.  Amalfi, Sorrento and Positano, are the most famous and exclusive destination of this area. I’ll let this picture of Positano speak:Positano, Italy

The beautiful little island of Capri can be easily reached by boat from the  Amalfi coast.  In these pictures are the well known ‘Faraglioni’ rocks and the ‘Grotta Azzurra’ (or the blue cave) one can admire in Capri. capri, italy


Capri is a really glamorous destination since decades. And guess what, capri pants ‘ name derives from the island , where  this style arose to popularity in the early ’60, thanks to the amazing actress Grace Kelly who in those years was wearing capri style pants precisely in Capri.  In Italy we call it mostly ‘pinocchio’ style, instead of  ‘capri’.  Anyway, capri pants are still now  a summer must-have.

Here is a very cool pair of capri trowsers in floral prints by Dolce & Gabbana, from their summer collection.  I love them, absolutely!
