On account of the grey – a gallery of women’s images that have become iconic, and every film is a kind of Declaration of love Hollywood Actresses of all ages.
A woman of rare energy and a charming gentleness. On the street or on the screen – it is everywhere equally natural: there’s not one bit of pretense, she is divine,

For the filming of a promotional video the Director chose one of the most famous Hollywood movie studios – The Lot. Here were born many masterpieces, including “Guys and Dolls” with Marlon Brando, “In jazz only girls” with Marilyn Monroe and “the Thomas crown affair” with Steve McQueen. He called on the help of about 100 technicians, and has invited 175 extras, and used a bizarre decoration, fabrication and installation which took more than two weeks.
In the movie Julia Roberts starred in a dress from the couture of the famous Parisian designer Alexander Vauthier, who has already collaborated with Lancome a few years ago. The master of the House of Lesage has embroidered this form-fitting dress of silk crepe ivory 700 Swarovski crystals. All the work on the creation of the dress took 200 hours, about 150 of them left on the embroidery.
