Art Gowns’ Paris Adventure

When Rene Rosso was asked to sing in Paris, well, she said YES!

Of course, she had several requests. One, was that the Art Gowns would open for her with a fashion show. She had a special gown designed, just to announce the Art Gowns.

First out on the runway in “The Tulle Collection” was Gigi. In an asymmetric one sleeved stunner named “The Twirl”,  she swept the stage with ease.

Holly totally glammed it up for the catwalk. She had wanted to ride out onto the stage on a motorcycle. It had to be a Harley, but they couldn’t find an acceptable one, on such short notice.

Rene Rosso, being a class act, sent out a big Thank you to the Beauty Team.

Taking care of the Wardrobe is the very capable Bijou. She wields a hot iron like no one else.  Stay good and  you won’t  get your  face pressed!

Margot is the hair stylist. She was once up for a Golden Globe award.

Geneviève, one of the best make-up artists, ever, to graduate from The Coop will be attending the Maquillage.

Of course there are unsung heroes. Rene Rosso insisted they come out to the stage for a bow, to hearty applause.

Above, Bridgette is responsible for all of the staging. Below is Adrienne, the Tour Manager.

Then it was back to The Art Gowns fashion show, with the vivacious Dale leading the way  in an Avant Garde specialty.

For Shey, inspiration was taken from her romantic period novels. During the flight to Paris, the Art Gowns read The Viking and The Courtesan. The girls are all still chattering away about it!

Marina is for real, even as she models this Faux Ballerina number.

It was time for Rene Rosso to perform a song. She adores the Parisienne audiences. In an Art Gown designed by Resa, and stage production design by Bridgette to look like a painting,

… she torched with “La Vie en Rose”. Her favourite version is by Melody Gardot.

Suddenly, on the last note of the song, the lights went BLACK!…..

… and Princess Blue Holly found herself in the night’s streets of Paris.Changing to her Crimes in a City’s Dark Corners outfit, she climbed to the roofs of Paris.

Hiding by a Gargoyle on on the southeast tower of Notre Dame Cathedral, Princess Blue Holly awaited the dawn and for her Tangle – Heart to guide her.

 What was happening? How had Rene Rosso become Princess Blue Holly without conscious effort? Where were the Art Gowns? Where was her Tangle-Heart? Would the master of her inner dragons, Hyperion be able to help her?

Mosaics, Mesh & Eyelash

While the world awaits Princess Blue Holly to save the Art Gowns Mermaids, let’s take a look at a photo shoot from last month!

Above: In a knockout mesh gown, accessorized with mesh fan, full length gloves and mosaic hair, renowned Torch Chanteuse, Rene Rosso, opens the layout.

Art Gowns was lucky to get Gigi for this shoot. Her fall schedule is hectic, as she devotes much of her time to saving all birds, with a focus on turkeys. Here she is resplendent in a mosaic gown, accessorized with mosaic hair and bracelets .

Shehanne is the meaning of splendour in a mosaic and eyelash gown with full length mesh gloves and mosaic hair. The beauty team gave her a 1980’s Italian vogue make-up look. When she got home the Hamster Dudes didn’t recognize her and called police.

Holly is adorned in a mosaic and mesh gown. Her hair mocks mosaic, with Jet beads set in at irregular intervals. Art Gowns wanted to do something special for Holly. Knowing she adores motorcycle adventures, mosaic gauntlets were added to the gown.

This shoot was Dale’s first time modelling for Art Gowns. We all had a lot of fun working with her. In a mosaic & mesh gown, accessorized with a mesh/mosaic fan, mosaic bracelet & hair, Dale does not disappoint!

Aquileana is marvellous in this mosaic & eyelash gown. Pulled together with a mosaic fan, full length mesh gloves and subtle mosaic hair, this outfit is deadly gorgeous.

 

The colours of Marina’s mesh & mosaic gown was largely inspired by the Aegean sea colours in a painting she sent me. (I love it!) Half length mosaic gloves and mosaic hair complete the outfit.

BTW! I bought a Marina Kanavaki calendar for 2020. It’s absolutely fabulous. Click on the calendar, and go to her blog’s calendar post. There’s PayPal buttons, and you can get one of your own.

As per her contract with Art Gowns, Ms. Rosso modelled 3  gowns, and had her choice of which gown to open the article with.

Ms. Rosso, a class act, shared her fruit plates and flowers with all of the models.

Impressed with Paloma Fath, Ms. Rosso is currently preparing a new act, featuring all new gowns, and a heavily directed stage presentation.

H’eye there everyone!

I want to let you all know that the new Art Gown is done. So, we’ll all have to wait to see the next episode of Princess Blue Holly.

 Of course I have to dress  the Mini-me, give the gown a final press, vacuum, arrange the plants and then shoot it. After that there is the selection of photos and making the post. I can hardly wait!!! 💖

Breaking News: Art Gowns’ Models Turned into Mermaids

Mermaid Holly here! It’s terrifying, but myself & some of the Art Gowns’ models have been turned into mermaids.

We know who did this, and Princess Blue Holly has vowed to capture the evildoer, and return us to our regular gorgeous model selves. In the meantime, we’ve decided to have a fashion show, and I’m your host for the Art Gowns’ Mermaid Fashion Show.

First on the Runway is Mermaid Gigi, in a very Avant Garde quadruple fin, one shoulder eye catcher. Right behind is  Mermaid Rene Rosso in an ultra-green sweeping fan tail extravaganza with strapless bra top and full length gloves. What a show stopper!

Unfortunately Mermaid Rene Rosso won’t be singing a Torch Song for us, as it just sounds like she’s gurgling.

The usual beauty team can’t breath under water, so some very talented MerChicklets were hired by Mermaid Gigi for the event.

Above: Nora and Skippy were in charge of Art Direction.

MiCHELL was in charge of hair.

Lacy was the make-up artist.

Pearl was the costume stylist.

Coming up is Mermaid Marina. This off the shoulder extra long sweeping, in and out, undulating uni-tail is all the rave this season!

Below, Mermaid Shehanne shows off her, direct from Europe, fan fin and tease tail couturier heartbreaker.

Thank you for attending our show tonight! The Mermaids are very tired now, and are hitting the seaweed hay.

Rene Rosso transforms to Mermaid Rene Rosso, then from Mermaid Rene Rosso to Princess Blue Holly Mermaid. ONE – Starts the show.

Mermaid Princess Blue Holly is off to avenge the Art Gowns’ Models. Stay tuned for more on this story.

🌹Big Thank You’s to all of the Art Gowns’ Models. 🌹

Their names, under their Mermaid selves, are hot. So visit their fab blogs.
