"So he says, 'No Claire, I want her to look like a flower!' As if Ms. Madra Lord would wear anthing that made HER look like a flower..."
"So what did you do?"
"What could I do? I called the set dresser and asked what kind of flowers they were using. He is a real sweetheart! Wouldn't you know it, he brought me some of the most beautiful gardenias!"
"And then it came to me." Claire snaps her fingers. "Now, we just pray she'll wear it!
"Ms. Lord's dress is a heavy bridal satin, fully lined. The gown is really nothing more than a column, nipped and tucked in just the right way. The little jacket is what makes the costume though....and that lace. I don't think I could have planned it better; the way it opens out around her..."
"The pearl and crystal necklace was a last minute addition. I may still suggest that Herr Director throw some weight around or even some cash, and get something fabulous from one of the great jewlers we've worked with before!"
"Gardenia" is displayed on "Ultimately Madra."
