Runway Video: Annie Lennox performs at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2011 show
Saturday at an Annie Lennox performance, a fashion show broke out. At least that was the way it felt when the curtains opened on the Dolce & Gabbana Men's Spring/Summer runway collection to reveal the singer sitting at a grand piano.
Lennox sang and played the piano for the duration of the 17-minute show, often to the cheers of the crowd, ending with a tableaux of tuxedo-clad models gathered around her and clapping to the music.
I'll cover the specifics of the runway collection in a later post, but suffice to say, the inclusion of Procol Harum's 1967 song "A Whiter Shade of Pale" was no accident.
(And my apologies for the errant foot sticking into the right side of the video -- I had to place the Flip video camera on the floor so I could take notes, and wasn't aware of the well-shod interloper until it was all over.)
