Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture: sweet sophomore

Ulyana Sergeenko had her second Haute Couture show last week at the Théâtre Marigny.  I loved walking in to spot all of the Ulyana clones with long prairie dresses, braids and a ethereal aura.  There is just something so special about this style of dress that intrigues me.

The show opened with the music of Somewhere Over the Rainbow quietly humming.  So much more restrained and less costume-y than her last show, these clothes remained true to the Ulyana spirit while also becoming wearable.  

Pieces were adorned with precise embroidery, lace and pleats.  Her accessories were endearing and sweet: parasols, hats, small clutches and lace gloves.  

An Americana theme was brought to life as Copland's Rodeo: Hoe-Down exploded through the small theater.  And the musical overture from the movie Rocky  (downloaded immediately). Dorothy from Oz visited and as a Southern girl, I couldn't miss Scarlett walk the runway.  

The show ended with a little peek-a-boo from Ulyana from within the little book at the back of the runway.  And then the sweet sounds of Tara started as the crowd exited the theater, Gone With the Wind.
