Couture Week: Armani contrasts classic with exotic
PARIS (AP) - The red-carpet glamour of haute couture - with its dripping paillettes, glistening silks and exorbitant price tag - makes it a natural bedfellow for A-list actresses the world over.
The spring-summer season 2013 is certainly no exception, with Tuesday, the second day of couture week, attracting a throng of top stars, old and young - as it has for decades.
Kill Bill star Uma Thuman likes Armani couture so much that she flew in hundreds of miles especially to catch the 15-minute show.
"He's one of the few designers who's been dressing Hollywood actresses since the beginning," said Thurman of the Italian fashion legend, who held a typically sumptuous couture display of luxurious silks, with rhinestones, jet and crystal.
