I cannot even begin to tell you for how much time I’ve been keeping this article under wraps, but I wanted to lean into a bit of couture today, so here we are.
Actress Eva Green has that kind of mysterious energy that would make anyone fall for her and the dress she wore to the Bulgari WILD POP Gala Dinner, held at The Roundhouse on April 25, 2019 in London, was once again proof of it.
To attend the event, Green stunned in an archival Jean Paul Gaultier chartreuse ensemble from the Fall 2010 Couture collection, with a split sweetheart neckline and structured shoulders.
The fearless ensemble was paired with gold Jimmy Choo ‘Misty 120‘ heeled sandals and several Bulgari pieces: a pair of High Jewelry earrings in white gold with round brilliant cut diamonds, round rubies and pavé diamonds, a ruby ring, a diamond ring, a Serpenti Bracelet with ruby accents on her left wrist and another Serpenti Bracelet with emerald accents on her right wrist.
Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge painted the actress’ face, going for fresh skin with touches of highlighter and amethyst eyes (very much inspired by Liz Taylor). A very bright pink power pout sealed the deal and playfully contrasted the color of the dress.
Her hair was styled by Alain Pichon in a side-part bob haircut, with part of it behind her left ear to better showcase the jewelry she was wearing. The vibe was very femme fatale-esque with a hint of “Death Becomes Her” allure, one of my favorite movies.
Her short nails were painted with a dark burgundy nail polish, we will make sure to update this space if we’ll find out who did them for her.
At the time, Eva was styled by Nicky Yates, who accompanied her through her fashion journey for several years, delighting us with the dreamiest and most romantic gowns.
Make sure to follow her work on Phoebe Dynevor and Daisy Edgar-Jones, eye-wateringly beautiful.
Wild Pop is a Bulgari High End Jewellery collection from 2018, which drew inspiration from Andy Warhol.
Lucia Silvestri, the brand’s creative director, mixed together precious and semi-precious stones, a practice taken from the ’60s, while the design of the collection was inspired by the seventies and eighties, when Nicola Bulgari was just a young creative.
Warhol was a fan of the company and in Interview, the magazine he founded in 1969, he wrote: “I believe that your idea of jewellery is the eighties. Everyone attempts to copy you. Bvlgari jewels manage to perfectly capture the moment.”
Besides, Silvestri described her work on the collection as follows: “I have created interplay between references and ideas that reflect a whole series of aspects of the eighties, from the world of music to that of fashion, the clothes and colours from that period, through to the future as we saw and imagined it then. A mix of breaking away from conventions, of extravagance, freedom with colour and energy. Besides, Larger than Life is the mantra that makes up most of our DNA.”
