The Colorful Weekend Romans

A very bright, eye-catching Andre Leon Talley and Jennifer Hudson arrive for Valentino's 45th Anniversary celebration in Rome over the weekend. I adore ALT, I think he is very inspiring but sometimes he goes quite far out on that (fashion) tree limb, that all that comes to mind is crazy. Not the man himself, of course, but his choice of dress. ALT is known for his off kilter caped arrivals, I guess he likes the show-stopping, entrance making awe. Yet, all he has to do (which he usually always does) is slip off the cape to reveal a well-tailored suit turning him, quite quickly, into a well-groomed fashionable man. He is like the male fashion version of Cinderella after she slips on her glass slippers.
