No, this model at the Armani fall/winter couture show in Paris last week isn’t crossing her arms in boredom. But, thanks to the magic of sequined trompe l’oeil (which literally means “deceive the eye”), her black-velvet dress gives the effect of doing just that. It, and that perfect little striped hat, made me smile.
