Verdi's aria Celeste Aida is commonly translated as Heavenly Aida (Aida being a woman's name, not undergarments). Regardless, it is a genius color as developed by Bianchi--a signature color that may be any of a thousand shades and still instantly identifiable.

I'm going to put on the 78 of Caruso crooning Celeste Aida and think about him singing about underwear. I think you guys have ruined that recording for me!
