In an alley in the old town, a few Americans drag their slippers onto the sidewalk without really knowing where to go, and they are already hawks from their day. One of them wears red suspenders over a white tuxedo shirt. On his shaven head and rosy by strong sunlight, a palm-shaped tattoo appears.

20:30 – The battle of dresses

Dress fight in the palace. The steps are good. Once you get in, it gets more complicated. Thanks to XXL dresses, it’s hard to occupy just the place you have. The dress overflows onto the next chair and goes down the aisle. Maximum tension when the second elegance arrives. We should have 6 cubic meters of tulle.
