She dresses like a lady


EN - Anne Hathaway told to be grateful to Kate Middleton for dressing like a lady and for making looking appropriate really fun again. The Duchess of Cambridge blossomed out in a refined elegance, based on a sober and well-groomed womanliness. Her style is embellished by tasteful details: the predilection for dresses, medium height heels, navy blue (instead of the usual black colour) and the use of not garish jewels. The Duchess of Cambridge is a real ambassador of the English style, interpreted both in a young and modern mood and in an elegant and sophisticated way.


IT - Anne Hathaway ha dichiarato di essere profondamente grata a Kate Middleton per vestire come una lady e per aver riportato in auge lo stile classico e raffinato. La nuova eleganza nella quale è sbocciata la Duchessa di Cambridge si basa su una sobria e curata femminilità, impreziosita dalla predilezione per abiti, mezzo tacco, blu navy (invece del solito nero) e dall'uso di gioielli non appariscenti. La Duchessa di Cambridge è una vera ambasciatrice dello stile inglese, declinato in chiave giovane e moderna, elegante e sofisticata.

EN - Berlin was divided until 1989, but now, thanks to the German tenacity and efficiency, it is a wonderful Central European capital. Berlin offers a lot to its visitors: a challenging range of museums, huge shopping (the main street of the shops, the Kurfürstendamm, is 3.5 km long!) and a good cuisine (both the German and the multi-ethnic one; the authentic Italian restaurants I tried were excellent. By the way, in some cafés, breakfast is served until 5 PM!). Berlin is a city with an alternative mood, where the contemporary art coexists with the classical one and where the modern but environmentally friendly architecture makes this city a fascinating European metropolis.

IT - Berlino è stata una città divisa fino al 1989, però adesso, grazie alla tenacia e all'efficienza tedesca, è una meravigliosa capitale mitteleuropea. Berlino ha molto da offrire ai suoi visitatori: una stimolante scelta di musei, tanto shopping (la via dei negozi, la Kurfürstendamm, è lunga 3,5 km!) e una buona cucina (tedesca e multietnica, ottimi i ristoranti italiani autentici che ho provato. A proposito! In alcuni bar  la colazione è servita fino alle 5 del pomeriggio!). Berlino è una città dall'aria alternativa, dove la cultura contemporanea coesiste con quella classica e dove l'architettura moderna ma eco-friendly rende questa città  un'affascinante metropoli europea.

EN - Just back from Berlin, I advice you to do not miss a lunch at the Gourmet on the sixth and seventh floors of KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens, Tauentzienstr. 21-24), an aperitif at the Winter Garden on the seventh floor of KaDeWe and a hot chocolate in the wonderful hall of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski (Unter den Linden 77) that is located just in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Gute Reise!

IT - Appena rientrata da Berlino, consiglio di non perdere un pranzo al Gourmet al VI e VII piano del KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens, Tauentzienstr. 21-24), un aperivo al VII piano del Winter Garden del KaDeWe e una cioccolata calda nella splendida hall dell'hotel Adlon Kempinski (Unter den Linden 77) il quale si trova proprio di fronte alla Porta di Brandeburgo. Gute Reise!
