Celebrity Stylist Recaptures Spirit of ‘La Dolce Vita’ for Playboy Magazine Cover
Sought-after celebrity stylist Sarah Wallner recently added Playboy Magazine to her growing list of cover styling credits. Wallner, founder of Musotica.com — a popular on line destination for sexy clothes and accessories — gathered inspiration for the cover both from her Roman roots and the critically acclaimed Federico Fellini 1960 film, “La Dolce Vita.”
Featuring Pamela Anderson as “La Dolce Pam,” the January 2011 edition of Playboy Magazine is a vibrant “feel good” romp back into cinematic time where “La Dolce,” meaning “the sweet life” in Italian, was the order of the day.
“Pamela was perfect for the cover,” said Wallner, who has styled magazine covers for a host of major national publications, including Fitness, Esquire and Oxygen. “Looking at her, you can almost hear Anouk Aime beckoning her leading man, Marcello Mastroianni, to join her for their famous ‘splashdown’ in the Trevi Fountain on Via Veneto Street.”
When she’s not celebrity styling on high profile photo shoots such as Playboy, Wallner is working at her second labor of love — running Musotica, where the mantra is “Undress for Success.” Fashion industry experts agree that the website benefits from her Hollywood styling background.
“What makes Musotica so unique is that a gifted Hollywood stylist is personally selecting each and every piece of apparel offered on the site,” said one industry insider. “You won’t get that anywhere else in our industry, because it’s typically corporate merchandisers who make decisions based on hard profits alone.”
Wallner says her website — which combines sheer sexiness, attitude with a fitness flair — has become an “on line” destination for women looking for a sexy, fresh alternative to confidently express themselves.
“Musotica really taps into my celebrity styling background,” said Wallner, who was born in Rome, and raised in an artistic family. “I’m able to offer all women – not just famous Hollywood actors – a truly diverse, yet incredibly flattering and fun array of sexy clothing and accessories.”
