Despite the RL example, initially this outfit  wasn’t modelled after Audrey Hepburn’s look in “Roman Holiday,” but rather grew into resembling it so much that eventually  I decided to go all the way with it. It had started with the hair and skin -for several weeks, the Kitten 1 make up had been the only skin I owned (aside from the Fleur newbie skin), so the 1950s look was a bit of a no-brainer. The shoes were part of the group gift LeLutka gave out several weeks ago and quickly became a staple in my inventory. The rest just fell in place, and in the end I only added the scarf and the scooter as a reference to the original.

Interestingly, it was only when creating this outfit that I noticed that I actually had no idea which colour exactly the original from the film was. There are several colourized DVD-covers, and they all vastly differ in that regard: one shows a red skirt, another a blue one, and I think I even saw one where the skirt was white and the blouse pink… To me, it looks as if the skirt was made from a quite fair-coloured material, so I went with yellow. I opted out of the bigger belt because unlike the original it made my outfit look too bulky.

I couldn’t find a scarf/ necktie which would have been an exact match, but I like how the scarf, skirt and shoes compliment each other without having the exact same hues.

There’s a scene in the film taking place at the Piazza Espagna, and my idea was to shoot there, but it ended up so crowded in this particular sim that I decided to leave again. I prefer quiet places for taking pictures… so, this “Roman Holiday” actually should be called a “Venetian Holiday,” since the snapshot was taken in the Venezia sim.
