So one post just was not enough.

Last night Taraji looked absolutely amazing on the red carpet; before later taking to the stage with her cast mates, winning (in every aspect) and giving a memorable, emotional and inspiring acceptance speech! Wearing a powder pink Reem Acra, New York original, Taraji looked stunning as she had a strong and sassy ora about her, a radiant glow and showed off her new hair cut at the SAG Awards. Complete with minimal jewellery and what looks like, no accessories; Ms Henson rocked the see-through, hand embellished gown with more than just a touch of class.

Inspired by ancient traditions and the Sicilian Cart, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have created a special Sicilian Carretto eyewear collection. With only 100 numbered pieces, the mixture of both optical and sun glasses have been individually crafted by hand; representing the definition of “One of a Kind”; as no two glasses have been decorated the same – making each one completely unique!

Made from canaletto walnut, each frame has been delicately hand-painted with images, symbols and iconography of Sicilian folk culture and history of the Italian island’s famous artistic mode of transport; the Sicilian Cart! Just like the original Sicilian Carretto, every one of the 100 limited edition pieces in the special eyewear collection, reflects Sicily’s tradition and culture through the ample use of of bright colours, multiple layers of paint, Carretto motifs and a great attention to detail!

Personally, I think this is amazing! Dolce and Gabbana have out done themselves in terms of creative inspiration, but on this occasion I have to compliment  the artists/decorators for the precision, time consumption and delicate craftsmanship. The results are truly beautiful. I only wish I could afford a pair and be one of the lucky 100! The pieces from this special eyewear collection are definitely collectable pieces, worth treasuring. Like any high-end limited edition fashion piece, I’m sure these glasses will increase in value and be considered a stylish investment!
