The Bride Wore Navy
Word's out! Mel Odom's Phoenix Gene Marshall by JAMIEShow gets married. Luckily, its only for a film. In the Oscar nominated None of The Good Ones Want to Be Taken, Gene plays Roberta Rogers, a trailblazing independent woman who defines her own life and fashion style.
For the city hall marriage scene, Gene wears the Ashton-Drake produced Mood Indigo ( #76710, released in 2002 in a limited edition of 3000) that was first seen on Gene's friend Violet Waters. Designed by José Ferrand, the elegant 1948 navy satin day suit boasts a diagonally draped jacket and an A-line skirt embellished with a panel of three pleats across the front. Four little Mother of Pearls buttons evoke a constellation on a midnight blue sky.
The drama of the white satin portrait hat with navy blue feathers cannot be beat.
