I’ve styled looks at Firenze4Ever for four seasons now, and yet never on myself – this was too fun! I threw the outfit together with ten minutes of sunlight to spare for the shoot. The foundation was Valentino’s gorgeous red silk jumpsuit ($2,980), a piece that will flatter all shapes and sizes (yes, even you, petite Snobs!). The high waistline creates the illusion of long legs and the halter style elongates the neck. All you need is a pair of skyscrapers like these Giuseppe Zanottis ($950) to ensure the fabric falls gracefully. Roberto Cavalli’s jacket ($5,125) is a statement making piece that makes a wardrobe- I almost took it home with me! His love of textiles and rich color is in full bloom – the handpainted flowers have such depth it’s like gazing at the real thing. This is the way I like to wear leather jackets – with a ladylike twist. The jumpsuit and florals are super femme, which is why I loved juxtaposing it with the hard edge of Valentino’s Rockstud bag ($1,695). Available on Luisa via Roma.
