>> Only a theatre production so ingrained in fashion would include a Chanel runway sample and Prada pumps as props. Mariacarla Boscono and Margherita Missoni starred in an off-off-Broadway production of Jean Genet's The Maids on Saturday. I knew Margherita had actress ambitions, what with her studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, but Mariacarla, too? Or maybe she just liked wearing a stringy black wig, crawling around on all fours, and whipping Margherita with a belt (all of which she did for the production).
The best news yet, however: Mariacarla's promise. "For couture, I am doing something different with my hair. You will see -- it will be a complete transformation!" Can't wait.
