Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red
~ “Red” by Taylor Swift
The Miss Virtual World contest is over and the glitter and sequins have been swept up from the runway, but that doesn’t mean a little sparkle doesn’t remain from the contest. Mohna Lisa just released the dress made for the MVW winner, Eleseren Brianna. Based on the designs of Peruvian designer Noe Bernacelli, the gown is a magnificent example of James’ (Mohna Lisa’s) skill with translucent mesh, creating a piece that is provocative and elegant with deep red roses embroidered over the mesh and a very subtle glitter you can see as the gown moves in SL. He has included a dramatic cape, rendered beautifully with a satin exterior, really suitable only for photo taking but absolutely gorgeous.
Strip off the cape and the gown is breathtaking in its silhouette with an amazing translucency and a glittering texture applied to the fabric that can only be appreciated with movement in SL (see above). As the eensy little gems pick up the shifting windlight in SL, the gown glitters. It’s a fabulous use of graphics in SL especially added to the dramatic look the beautiful mesh overlaying the body provides. (And in this case, I am wearing it over the Belleza Venus mesh body.) The roses coverning the gown give it its South American flavor, a lusciously romantic and sensual look. I can’t help but think the gown itself helped Eleseren’s win. I know I feel like a winner wearing it!
My skin is one of Shyla Diggs’ for Uber, which I believe is now closed so I am certain she will have them at the main store soon if not already. I loved the sophisticated matte lip matched with the daring red eye makeup. I wore this pretty braided updo from Nontroppo Torii as it conveyed a sort of South American flavor that suited the dress itself. Gold earrings from AvaGardner Kungler echo the gold in the belt. I had to wear Senzati0n Domenitzo’s new elegant and sexy slingbacks again.
