The Italian is not a Contessa.

Further about Italian titles… The correct title for the Italian girl is: Filippa Brandolini d’Adda [dei conti di Valmareno] . Her father was born a Count. As a result of the laws ending titles, none of his offspring can inherit it. Furthermore, as an Italian title… the females never inherit it or pass it on. They are simply ‘dei conti’… they can only marry a count to pass on a count title.

The other mystery nobiliese going by the name of Piccolomini does not show up in the Peerage at all.

But you should know that in 1946 all Italian titles ended when the monarchy ended. furthermore, in the 1960’s the Pope ended all Papal titles and by 1967 the constitutional courts officially declared the use of titles and or their application in law was no longer legal. Italian titles for younger people are bogus. The only titles le bal touted this year are BOGUS. Even the Arabian prince and his family who owns the hotel is no where to be seen when the owners were always present in the past.

To add insult to injury… the great mind Robert Burton says it best when he declared:

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.”

“Of all varieties of foppery, the vanity of high birth is the greatest. True nobility is derived from virtue, not from birth. Title, indeed, may be purchased, but virtue is the only coin that makes the bargain valid. ” (Robert Burton)

Oh and PS… when accessing the recorded archives of the designer Giambattista Valli Haute Couture for the dates of his time as a member of the syndicate of Haute Couture… I was not sure if I found the red dress anywhere. It might be spring 2012…  but if they lie about the title, what is to stop them lying about the dress. … any other opinions?!

As far as Piccolomini… her dress was supposedly Zuhair Murad Couture… but Zuhair Murad did not make the member list of Haute Couture in Spring 2012… Does have an Haute Couture for Fall 2012… But the dress that Piccolomini is wearing is NOT Couture. It is from the pret au porter season Fall 2012 (Automne Hiver 2012) just check out

As Burton said…  True nobility is derived from virtue… Lying is not a virtue.
