Loss of a Teardrop Diamond Style
The latest film recreation of Tennessee Williams’s play, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, starring Bryce Dallas Howard as troubled southern belle Fisher Willow, drips with debutante glamour and French-American flare.
The film’s costume designer, Christi Karvonides-Dushenko, who says she was inspired by everything from Elizabeth Taylor to 1920s Sears Roebuck catalogs, told us that “Diamond was a costume designer’s dream!” Among her favorite pieces in the film are Willow’s cotillion gown, which she discovered in a friend’s private collection and immediately sketched, and, of course, the custom-made teardrop diamond earrings inspired by a pair belonging to Marie Antoinette. But filming wasn’t without a few hiccups: “We filmed down south and the humidity was so intense… the vintage clothing was so delicate, it would disintegrate!” The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond is in theaters now.

Exclusive Giada de Laurentis Recipe!
We're having a Giada moment!
With a new line of affordable and lustworthy kitchen tools launching this month at Target and a new book, Giada at Home out in March, de Laurentis makes it easy to entertain with style. Enjoy an exclusive look at one of our favorite recipes from the cookbook, cheese-stuffed dates with prosciutto:
1/4 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup (2 ounces) mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
16 Medjool dates (12 ounces)
8 thin slices prosciutto, halved lengthwise
In a small bowl, mix together the cheeses and basil. Season with salt and pepper. With a knife, make a lengthwise incision in each date. Gently open the dates slightly and remove the pits. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cheese mixture inside each. Close the dates around the filling. Wrap a piece of prosciutto around each date and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the stuffed dates on a platter and serve with a crisp white wine as the ideal before-dinner tidbit.
