Look Prima della Scala

 

E’ la sobrietà la protagonista delle mise alla prima della Scala 2019: domina il nero, impera il velluto, compare il raso, rimangono contenuti gli strass e le piume, limitati a pochi dettagli. “Eleganza, solo eleganza”: sembra essere questo l’imperativo che ha guidato le signore nella scelta dell’abito in una delle serate più importanti per la cultura ma anche per la mondanità italiana. E lo dicono anche gli stilisti Dolce e Gabbana, in una delle loro apparizioni durante una delle pause. Poche le celebrities, molte le autorità, che per una sera hanno dismesso gli abiti di istituzionali, per vestire quelli del glamour, associato alle grandi firme del fashion italico.

Se il Piermarini è l’anima culturale di Milano, Armani è il suo simbolo nella moda, e infatti è proprio re Giorgio a vestire i personaggi più importanti: con la sua linea ’Prive firma l’abito della prèmiere dame meneghina, Chiara Bazoli, la compagna del sindaco Giuseppe Sala, elegantissima nella sua gown a sirena e scollo a V, nella parte superiore, basta un accenno di luce sulle spalle a illuminarla; al contrario il sindaco ha scelto uno smoking realizzato dal suo sarto napoletano di fiducia “20 anni fa” quasi a sottolineare – e un pò a vantarsi (stasera si può) – di una forma fisica intatta.

È sempre di Armani il tailleur-pantalone nero di Maria Elena Boschi (che si presenta insieme al collega di Italia Viva, Ivan Scalfarotto) con la chioma raccolta in una finissima coda ondulata, fermata da un fiocco di velluto, per richiamare i profili e i bottoni del blazer, e per confermare di essere perfettamente in linea con il pret-a’-porter di quest’anno; veste la stessa casa anche la moglie del ministro Dario Franceschini (in smoking e papillon), Michela di Biase.

Ha scelto il grigio scuro, ma non ha tradito Armani, la figlia del Presidente della Repubblica, Sergio Mattarella, Laura, che lo ha accompagnato per la seconda volta nel Palco Reale; stesso atelier per un abito serioso, in linea con la sua immagine, adatto alla ministra dell’Interno, Luciana Lamorgese. In Armani pure Evelina Christillin, cosi’ come la coppia cinematografica, formata da Francesca Barra e Claudio Santamaria: “E’ la nostra prima volta qui”, ammettono, ma non sbagliano di certo look, soprattutto lei, in blu scuro, con una cappa di toulle e strass a coprire l’abito con strascico; “Sono una ex cantante lirica – racconta la Barra – che da un piccolo paesino della Basilicata sognava un teatro come questo”.

Androgina Patti Smith, che non abbandona i panni della rockstar, nemmeno entrando nel tempio dell’Opera, e non rinuncia a portare il capello a falda larga, che l’ha caratterizzata da Woodstock in poi. Emozionata Valeria Puccini, attrice, anche lei per la prima volta al Piermarini: “Mi aspetto uno spettacolo meraviglioso”, sorride, dando cosi’ luce al raffinato abito blu scuro, associato ad una cappa di velluto, e griffato Etro. Hanno scelto lo storico marchio, noto per i tessuti e le inconfondibili stampe, anche il rapper Marracash e la compagna Elodie: “Siamo curiosi”, ammettono, muovendosi nel foyer, cosi’ diverso ma forse, nel 2019, non piu’ cosi’ distante dai palchi underground del rap. Un ponte fra arti e musiche suggerito anche la regia di questa Tosca pucciniana, che riprende l’essenzialita’ della prima edizione, ma si ispira alle inquadrature del cinema.
