(Act I, Sc. 5)On Juliet: Christian Lacroix Couture satin with embroidered lace dress. On the guests: Dresses from the Christian Lacroix Couture archive.

Nurse: His name is Romeo, and a Montague,/The only son of your great enemy.

Juliet: Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed./If that thy bent of love be honourable,/Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow. (Act II, Sc. 2) Nina Ricci silk tulle dress embroidered with silver leaves.

Friar Laurence: These violent delights have violent ends,/And in their triumph die like fire and powder,/Which as they kiss consume. (Act II, Sc. 6) Vera Wang washed-silk-and-cotton voile dress with tulle floral

Friar Lawrence: Dry up your tears and stick your rosemary/ On this fair corse, and as the custom is,/ And in her best array, bear her to church:/ For though fond nature bids us all lament,/ Yet nature's tears are reason's merriment. (Act IV. Sc 5) Dolce & Gabbana Empire dress with embroidered crystals.
Prince: A glooming peace this morning with it brings/ The sun for sorrow will not show his head./ Go hence to have more talk of these sad things./ Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:/ For never was there a story of more woe/ Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. (Act V.Sc.3). Alexander McQueen silk tulle dress and petal-pressed nude body stocking.
