Barbra Streisand wore this gold Donna Karan, two-piece look while performing in Berlin on her “Barbra Streisand Live”, international tour. These performances followed a successful run of twelve shows of her USA/Canada “Back To Brooklyn” tour in Fall of 2012. This segment of the tour was comprised of eight shows, beginning on June 1, 2013 in London and ending on June 22, 2013 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The twenty show tour grossed a total of $66.3 million dollars and was ranked the 22nd best selling tour during 2012.
This shimmering gold outfit was worn only once during the entire tour. It appeared during the first portion of Act One on June 15, 2013 at Berlin’s O2 World Arena, which had an attendance of over 11,000. Donna Karan and Barbra collaborated for many weeks to produce the looks worn during this tour. Sequins were an important factor in these outfits because they catch the light so fabulously onstage. This look was made from cashmere and silk which was frequently used as a part of Donna’s “wet look” sequined pieces. This three piece outfit consists of a sweetheart neckline top, with a draped loop at the bust which extends into a loose oval hem. A long sleeve, open front cardigan with two slash pockets was worn over this top. The matching fitted pencil skirt had a slight flare at the bottom, giving us 60’s Barbra vibes. This look was incredibly flattering on Barbra and complimented her skin tone and blonde hair extremely well.
