I feel pretty!

The fabulous Nadine Sierra (singing the role of Tytania in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream) shares her experience at a photoshoot with Uptempo Magazine:

The entire experience was any woman's dream come true really. To have the opportunity to be photographed in beautiful clothes for a magazine feels incredible, like the movies. It's something we always see in films and wish that could happen in real life. For me, I've never felt like a diva and don't necessarily want to be one. But living a few moments in stunning Christian Louboutin's and sweeping the stage with an erotic Alexander McQueen dress made me feel like an opera diva! I got to play a part in many different designers and even walked with more character as I left the theater. But that's the point of wearing a $2,000 dress sometimes...to feel like your worth every penny and more. Each fold, pattern, color, texture, made me feel like I could express everything I felt in the clothes! And thats the point of fashion, to express something about yourself without the words written all over your body. Instead, there's fabric illustrating your personal tastes on your own skin. It's a fabulous feeling and I truly loved every minute of it.
