The Real-Real Behind the Scenes
Actually Suki is headed to Utah where she will cook a Thanksgiving spread for her bachelor-son in the Air Force and twenty of his fellow officers who are unable to make the trip home for the holiday with their own families.
A Little Background Music
Lady Gaga wears white to perform for five living U.S. presidents and raise money for hurricane relief in Texas.
Suki’s top is by Samuel Dong, one of the most popular boutique brands in the world, and was a gift from her mother. He’s a very artistic designer, known for bubble hems and ornate collars, as if he is trying to get as much of the luxurious fabrics around women as possible. This extra fabric and puckering define a woman’s shape in flattering ways instead of adding bulk. Two options still available from his 2017 line follow.
So, weird story: We searched forever for a similar blouse online. Finally I did an image search using Suki’s photo wearing the top. The results were two dictionary entries for “Lady” followed by photos of Kate Middleton in an array of white blouses. There you go. The mighty Google oracle has spoken. Ladies of the house (women with proprietary rights, refinement, and gentle manners) wear fancy white blouses.
