Director Emmanuel Itier and Sharon Stone
So, I got out of my Pj’s and off the computer to attend a fancy event recently for my husband’s documentary, ‘The Invocation‘. Emmanuel Itier directed it and Sharon Stone narrated the documentary on Religion around the world and how it effects our world today. Deepak Chopra, Desmund Tutu, Mark Wahlberg, Rosario Dawson, Dave Stewart, and music by Annie Lennox and many many others are all in ‘The Invocation’. The event was The Beverly Hills Film, TV, and New Media Festival and the cast of ‘The Invocation’ was awarded a Humanitarian Award. Here is a clip of Sharon Stone’s speech that night ( I am on the far left side):
I wore a custom-made (by Lillia) 1950’s-style toile dress (it was upholstery fabric, so it was a little heavy) with a bow (can’t not wear a bow- I’ve tried- doesn’t seem to happen). My necklace was Vivienne Westwood, gloves by Arden B. and my shoes were satin Chanel ballet heels from the spring 2001 collection and the ballet handbag is something I made and can be purchased here. My phone, lipstick, a piece of chocolate, some cash and a credit card fit well in the handbag- that’s it.
For the second night, I wore a flapper-style dress I made ages ago with feather, lace and bead detail. I was feeling a little Boardwalk Empire. I have to say this dress is pretty comfy because the fabric is stretchy cotton. I had just had a delicious meal of half rack of ribs, fries, coleslaw, soda, and a slice of ice cream pie before the event, so it was nice to not have to loosen my belt…my dress just s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. Love that. You can buy one here on my Etsy.
I did my hair and make up for both events and used Puppycatmeow’s rosettes and braid extension found here. All styling was by moi.
