Why is it that Notorious loves Constanza Pascolato? Well, she is 73 years old and one of the most amazing Brazilian beauties. You have to think, she is competing with Gisele Buendchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Carol Trentini…
Besides being charming and stylish, Constanza is an important piece in Brazilian’s huge fashion market, helping the country to find its own identity. She used to be Brazilian’s Vogue fashion editor, before joining her family business, one of the biggest weaving company in the country. And she designed one of the best sellers jewelry collection for H.Stern. Respect!
A year ago, Garance Doré interviewed Constanza during the New York Fashion Week, and here is a list of her essentials:
My Jeans: J.Crew. I admire the perfect cut of their basics with beautiful new colors. They seem to be in sync with the times, always!
My Evening: Miu Miu, almost all of the time. It is classic with that Italian culture of sophistication and Miuccia’s irony!
My Intimates: La Perla.
My Swimsuit: Lenny from Brazil. Classic, elegant and iconic beach wear.
My Coat: I always wear coats, heavy or very light because, at my age, they give polish to the look. Miu Miu, Prada, the new Belstaff and one of my favorites is an old Dolce and Gabbana. For blazers, I like Givenchy.
My favorite “fast-fashion” store: Cos and J.Crew. Usually I buy separates in summer. Simple, clean and well cut. And they do not have to last forever! Anyway, at my age (I am going to be 73), I do have to mix cheaper things with luxury ones to look good.
And sometimes I have some bespoke suits done for me in São Paulo by a young Chinese tailor. They are not expensive, and what a pleasure!
My Bag: Chanel, Celine, and Gucci. I prefer small ones. I cannot carry a heavy weight!
My Shoes: Valentino, Manolo Blahnik, Repetto flats and some extraordinary Prada’s. I have a very difficult time with heels nowadays–my feet hurt!
My Accessories: I love H.Stern jewels, most of all, the ones I designed with their creative people. I love Prada’s custom jewelry and Francesca Romana Diana (from Brazil). I love when they are a little over the top.
My Watch: A Rolex from the 1960′s.
My Scent: Eau du Soir from Sisley.
My Brunette: I always go to Paris, to have the colour of my hair re-designed at every “turn” of style. My friend Rodolphe, from Coloré par Rodolphe, does it. We’ve known each other for 15 years now. Same with Delphine Courteille, she cuts my hair in Paris.
My Lip: MAC Spirit.
My Inspiration: Life! I was so lucky to be born in the first half of the twentieth century and have lived through the most incredible, fast changing times. I am lucky to still be so active and able to be fascinated by everything new. The good and bad, people and facts.
