THE SILK LADY'S SON

Belén Rodriguez, the Argentian showgirl and top model that men love to ogle and women love to hate, is getting married. On 20th September she will tie the knot with Stefano De Martino and she has chosen a Modican designer to create both her wedding dress and a cocktail dress for the reception.

The designer is 28-year-old Daniele Carlotta, who comes from a well-known Modican family of textile dealers. Although  he has been working and living in Milan since 2005 and has dressed Lady Gaga, he still has a studio in Modica.   

Belén chose Daniele Carlotta because of his flair, unique style and the exquisite Italian textiles he uses, as befits the son of a woman known in Modica as "the silk lady".  The designer says that Belén's wedding dress will be made of Como silk studded with Swarovski crystals and a piece of 1940s French lace owned by the Carlotta family business and which was being kept for a special occasion. The cocktail dress is inspired by dresses in the film Scarface and will be made of ivory chiffon with Swarovski crystals and gold.

The groom will be dressed by the Udine tailors Chiussi who in the past numbered Gabriele d'Annunzio among their clients.

Belén seems to like Sicilian designers, for it was the messinese Fausto Puglisi who designed the dress - what there was of it - which caused every Italian male watching the 2012 Sanremo Festival on TV to fall out of his chair and every woman to go out into the kitchen to make the espresso machine hiss:




A little more refined this time, perhaps?

She's a statuesque, stunning looking young woman.

And, whew! I can see why she fell for Stefano!

What a beautiful looking pair they are!

I have to admit she is, Lee. Stefano is certainly easy on the eye. Lucky you, Nick! No idea, James. Yes, let's hope so, Hawkins Family.
