Cavalli's Sexy Back

Every woman in this world yearns to be dressed by him and his strong understanding in what a woman actually wants. Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Posh Spice was said to have her whole wardrobe filled with his haute couture-inspired creations and his Ming vase dress was worn by a number of celebrities and socialites at events and parties around the globe.
His interpretation of feminity by exuding sensuality and allure has made him one of the most favorable and desirable designer on earth and he is no other than the Italian fashion and silhouette maestro Roberto Cavalli. Cavalli recently showcased his latest Spring/Summer Ready-to-wear creation at the notable yet prestigious Milan Fashion Week 2006.

Attended by his fans, celebrities (Victoria Beckham and Anggun are the permanent fixtures at his shows ever since), press representatives and fashion buyers from around the world, the latest collection features Cavalli's long-recognized trademark- the animal prints, beadings and feathers, giving it a fresh and exotic feeling.
Models paraded on the runway with their braided hair, hoop earrings dangling, and the application of minimal makeup on their faces making them look fresh and less dramatic, thus giving an air of reality to the runway show. Dresses with sexy silhouettes are the menu du jour and have been a part of Cavalli's trademark from the start of his venture into this business which dated back to the mid-1970's.

Pieces that should be a hit among Cavalli die-hard fans or Cavallinis (a term that I coined myself for Cavalli fans) are the red python bustier, yellow caftan dress in zebra print with elongated sleeves and plunging neckline that is suitable to be worn when lounging near the pool with a glass of Martini in your hand, and a flowy leopard print halter dress with criss-cross back and golden beading deatils on the neck and waist. For accessories, heels in braided leather straps, belts with jadeite and turquoise crystal details arranged in flower motifs, and lacquered cuff with a crystal serpentine motif detail graced the models of Roberto Cavalli runways.
As usual, Cavalli appeared on the runway side by side with his wife Eva, receiving applause from the audiences. The Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2007 Collection will be available at Roberto Cavalli stores and select department stores and multi-brand boutiques worldwide early next year.
