When I received an invitation from my dear friend Gabriel Rivera-Barraza to attend to a cocktail party honoring the legendary Rossy de Palma at the beautiful home of Jessica Sofia Mitrani, the Colombian artist and filmmaker, I said yes immediately. Then I paused to reflect and was thrown back in time perhaps to 1988 when at the age of 12, I watched my first Almodovar movie "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and was forever hooked on this brilliant director's films. No one represents Spain so well and depicts Latin passion with the degree of accuracy that Pedro does: bullfights, love triangles, flamenco, transvestites, hookers, polka dots, attractive people, drama and comedy all mixed beautifully in colorful sets and vibrant locations including Madrid, Barcelona, Toledo and Lanzarote. I even mention in my book how much Almodovar's colors and intense movies have inspired my design projects. Rossy -- who I first saw on Women on the Verge always mesmerized me with her Picassoesque's features, her height, her inimitable style and her very amusing ways. She has broken all conventional rules of beauty throughout all these years, and she's still as fascinating as when I first saw her in the big screen. I had the best time with Rossy and her friends and when the party folded, I was so inspired that decided to look at my archives, pictures, DVD boxes and books in search of images of my favorite Almodovar sets, film stills and shots in locations. Here is my roundup.
