When I saw the peacock dress that Eva Longoria recently wore in Cannes, I wondered if it was the same dress I tried on at my friend Zang Toi‘s studio a couple of years ago. It was!
Back in the day, MrB loved the teeny-tiny dress on me, but I was more interested in the complementary gown. The gown had a looooong train featuring the same mix of beaded/real peacock feathers used on the Eva dress. I didn’t think that was practical for me. Unless you’re a bride or being photographed on the red carpet, you’re going to spend the entire evening holding your train or asking people to please step off your train. So Zang decided to make a gown for me in the same beautiful green fabric with a shorter, plain train; he put the peacock decoration on two accessories instead. Here I am carrying the peacock fan.
Want some peacock stuff of your own? Trend de la Creme has a nice selection here.
UPDATED TO ADD: Here’s another kind of peacock fan.
