I shot this look for the Stylemakers collaboration with Jimmy Choo just on sunset at Sydney’s Art Gallery a few weeks ago. I was given this dress by the beautiful Patricia Bonaldi while in Brasil last year to wear to our event with Vogue Brasil. When I first stepped in to her store in Sao Paolo I felt the influence was a mix between stunningly tasteful red carpet gowns, and Balmain. Photos cannot give this piece justice, with the phenomenal beading creating so much weight that is somehow balanced with a plunging back on a sheer netted underlay.
