Golden Globes Gleaming

I know yellow is the trend this season, but I was blown away by these looks:   Stone ( or her stylist!) always makes great choices. I loved her beaded top and pants with a sash at the last Golden Globes. I’ve worn gowns that have various lengths and it’s really hard to pull off. Monae does this effortlessly! I normally think polka dots, tulle and sequins (!) are too busy, but she really slays in this gown! I normally wouldn’t go for a statement so bold, but Wood looks stunning and I’m a big Dietrich and Bowie fan, so […]

Covergirl Outlast Works All-Day Everyday

I had the opportunity to try some wonderful new Covergirl Outlast All-Day products thanks to the fine folks at Influenster. Their soft touch concealer, matte finishing powder and lipgloss duo were a part of my gifted voxbox.   Though the powder and concealer were a bit too dark for my complexion, they were good blenders for when I want to do a light contour, but not too extreme that it looks obvious. My favorite was the lipgloss duo. I love the nude intensity base for daytime use and then the clear gloss to bump it up for the evening. Great […]

Sue Wong’s Epic Fashion Show at the Avant Garde Masquerade Ball

I had a blast at internationally renowned designer Sue Wong’s EPIC fashion show at the Avant Garde Masquerade Ball. This phenomenal event was held at the Majestic downtown, which was an apropos location as it dates back to 1921 as the original LA headquarters of Bank of America, which is an era that Sue’s designs often harken to!  Many of the vintage design features of this location are similar to The Cedars, Sue historic estate. This enchanted evening was the second annual Masquerade Ball for Michelle Long’s Avant Garde Magazine. Her runway included celebrity guest models Eugenia Kuzmina and Ava […]
