“Music is the most direct art, entering through the ear and going to the heart.” ~ Astor Piazzolla
When I saw this gown from Carrie Snowpaw that she is featuring at Fashionart, I was immediately reminded of Astor Piazzolla’s “Libertango,” a famous piece of tango nuevo. I went searching online, of course, and found it being danced in a gown similar to this while being performed by the Russian Philharmonic, which I could only consider was kismet. (Click through because it is seriously gorgeous dancing and beautifully arranged and performed. And here is another dance performance even more gorgeous.) Why did I think of this music? The gown is elegant and dramatic all at once, ruffled and sleek at the same time, feminine and bold. With gorgeous jewelry from Zuri Rayna that includes texture change in the different gems and stones, it’s an elegant, dramatic piece perfect for this ensemble.
I can’t help but think that the drama also comes from this gorgeous skin that JuneMonteiro is featuring at Fashionart. June is, in real life, a textile designer, so her sense of fashion and art extends from RL into SL. Her skin is elegant with the heated zest of a Brazilian beauty. She offers the Slink appliers free at Fashionart for her skin, and she also sells a set of liners and lipsticks. My high up-do is one of Shylah Honey’s gorgeous pieces for Fashionart, an abundance of soft hair and wisps and drama, perfect for a passionate tango.
“Music is more than a woman, because women can divorce you, but not music. Once you get married, [it] is your eternal love for life and [you] go to the grave with her on top.” ~ Astor Piazzolla
