We missed the party...

I didn't get my invitation to this:

21fpucci250FLORENCE: Like psychedelic clouds, wildly patterned balloons floated over the ancestral courtyard. Among the vivid swirls of pink, purple, turquoise and lime - the graphic designs of Emilio Pucci - bounced feather-light jersey dresses.

"Joyous - and cool," said the singer Kylie Minogue, who was wearing a tiny sequined minidress and had the current Pucci designer, Matthew Williamson, on her arm; while Elizabeth Hurley incited paparazzi flashbulbs in a corseted dress by the former Pucci designer Christian Lacroix.

For a 60th birthday, last weekend's party to celebrate Pucci's world was as vivacious as those iconic prints. By the end of the evening, the thick stone walls of the Renaissance palazzo resonated with dance music, as guests from current celebrities to aristocratic Florentines - Corsinis, Frescobaldis and Nicolinis - took to the dance floor or viewed a small exhibition of terry-cloth beach cloaks and densely embroidered beaded gowns.
