It is time to book an accommodation for a midwinter holiday, be it a Florence apartment or a Tuscan villa in the immediate surroundings offered by Tuscany Holiday Rent. A great opportunity to spend a holiday in Florence, enjoying both its charming glamour and the many events taking place there.
Madonna, the great chameleon-like pop star, is going to come to Florence on June, the 16th, 2012, as officially announced by the mayor. The site of the concert is Florence Franchi Stadium. After 25 years Madonna will be back in Florence, the town which welcomed her 1987 show ”The Material Girl”. She was already a show icon at the time. The fans were thrilled by her impressive silhouette in net stockings, biker boots and ragged wedding dress. Rob Sadusky, at the time, her stage costume supervisor, chose carefully her fashion designers who had to give the right shape to her on-going changes. Madonna’s shrewd and very personal taste often urged her to address the aesthetic sensibility of Old Europe to frame the image she had carefully planned. Thence J. Paul Gaultier, the French fashion’s original enfant terrible who designed Madonna’s risqué cone bra for the Blond Ambition Tour in 1990 and the following stage costume for the 2006 Confessions Tour.
This year, 2012, at the Super Bowl Indianapolis, U.S.A. the Material Girl has dazzled football fans at Lucas Oil Stadium for her Cleopatra- style. The dramatic performance, highlighted by her Egyptian regalia, headdress, spiked black boots, was enhanced by other visual effects planned by the Canadian Cirque de Soleil. Givenchy haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci has perfectly matched the show.
Italian style fashion, synonym of quality, style and elegance, is not forgotten by Madonna. She particularly adores the long-established Florentine Salvatore Ferragamo, “the shoemaker to the stars”, who after earning a name in Hollywood in the 20s, came back to the native country in search of high quality human resources. He settled in Florence at Palazzo Spini Feroni.
He is still there nowadays.
For the shoes worn by the pop star in Alan Parker’s Evita, she chose the Florentine craftsmanship because of the functional, aesthetic and fashionable accent in her overall female look.
Even in her private life the Florentine timeless elegance and striking style have become a common connotation.
Feeling quite confident of her stylistic choices, she can conjugate the fashion designer Roberto Cavalli with Frida Giannini of Gucci Fashion either for a soirèe at the MOMA in New York City or for day at the Venice Film Festival.
