For all, Styling by Zoe Costello, Makeup by both Carlene K & Patrick Ta, and hair by both Dimitris Giannetos & Randy Stodghill, but the remainder of the look details, left to right —







It looks like Mila Kunis is just as obsessed as the Internet is with Pat McGrath’s amazing highlighter. The Bad Moms actress used the cream part of McGrath’s Skin Fetish on her cheekbones along with EX1 Blush in Natural Flush. Makeup artist Tracey Levy used the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Coco Mirage and Seductive Rose. And a pop more of the Skin Fetish cream.

Originally from New York Carmichael Byfield now lives in the Netherlands, where his passion for designing men’s clothes returned. House of Byfield’s designs can be described as discreet and elegant wear, with an eye for detail and a sportive touch. His ‘daywear suits’ are for men who dare to dress well and still aren’t afraid to use color. A/W 15 Collection is an arc between classic, risqué and sports with of course the extravagant edge of Byfield and his design team the TDUTCH6.


There were such fresh designs seen from this collection, dapper suits and bold, contemporary dresses for women. This season Arts Heart Fashion was presented by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. AHF is he largest global AIDS organization, currently provides medical care and/or services to nearly 365,000 individuals in 36 countries worldwide in the US, Africa, Latin America/Caribbean, the Asia/Pacific Region and Eastern Europe.

Hallie Sara


Known for cutting-edge custom creations and exquisite luxury statement pieces, Hallie Sara’s signature style has gained a devout following since the brand’s debut in 2011. Crafted from the finest luxury materials, her A/W 15 presentation will showcase the designer’s sophisticated reinterpretation of classic silhouettes. Hallie Sara brings back iconic style fueled by old world glamor and modern sensibility.


The pieces here were high quality, fine craftsmanship. They were super luxurious and reminiscent of old-school glamor — timeless, feminine silhouettes. I’m sure with work as great as this, AHF is getting very excited about their series of designer shows in LA coming up, with presentations from Nicole Miller, Sue Wong, Hale Bob, Michael Costello, Walter Mendez, Mister Triple X, MT Costello, Pedram Couture, Maya Hansen, Zhang JingJing, Mimi Tran, Cary Santiago, M the Movement, Courtney Allegra, and many more!


Major celebs in attendance were Lilly Ghalichi, Miss J Alexander, Foxy Brown, Micah Hughes, Chantelle Fraser, Mimi Faust, VH1’s Black Ink Crew, Lilly Melgar, Kendall Schmidt, Karlie Redd, and Che’nelle.


Mimi Tran    imagesCU62RU7P

Known for her contemporary style that enhances a woman’s natural beauty and celebrates her femininity, Mimi Tran’s collections of embellished cocktail dresses and evening gowns incorporate only the most luxuriant materials and rely on superior construction for a look that is elegant and sophisticated – with a hint of the sensual. Mimi points to a hybrid of European luxury, Hollywood glamor and high-fashion couture influence when asked to describe her aesthetic. For her Fall/Winter 2015 collection, she channeled 1920s Paris: a black palette of intricate beading, lace and lattice work with gold accents accentuates the natural beauty of the feminine form.



I’ve been a huge fan of Mimi Tran since I was first introduced to her work at Nolcha Fashion Week, last season. The bold colors, eye-catching embellishments all make for an elegant and feminine collection. The official makeup sponsor for all of the designers was Organic Face, with the official hair sponsor being FHI HEAT.



The shows featured top celebrity models — Lilly Ghalichi, Shaun Ross, Miss Universe Janine Tugonon, Jimmy Q, and Anna Demidova. Production for the show was by ParkerWhitaker.

Best Dressed from the 2014 Grammy’s!

Red carpet season continues and up now, the 2014 Grammy Awards. The night is typically filled with daring looks, ones of a unique spirit, and really just a mix of so much — it can be sexy, fun, flirty, the sky is the limit! Here are my fave looks of the evening, ENJOY!



The Grammy’s seem like the perfect time for a different mix of gowns — risky, unique, etc. So for me, for this year, Katy gets props for this literal musical # she selected for a gown — a cream-colored, silk tulle gown from Valentino’s Spring 2014 Couture Collection. She paired with this look some great burgundy jewelry pieces by Ivy – spinel & diamong earrings and rings. You will also notice a wonderful nail gloss as well; you have to think of everything, right! And so Katy is wearing CoverGirl Outlast Nail Gloss in Everbloom, in a bubblegum pink hue.

Taylor has a very well put together look — a form-fitting, short-sleeved, gold lamé gown by Gucci Premiere, which is comprised of a crystal mesh overlay & gemstone detailing at the neckline, arms, & waist. I mean there is very little to dislike about a gown with such clean lines, except I think I read Tay said it was a bit scratchy! She completed her chic look with complimentary jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz — diamond drop earrings & a diamond ring & Jimmy Choo heels.

taylor-swift-earrings            taylor-swift-ringtaylor-swift-3-290BTW, T. Swift also looks great in her performance look for “All Too Well”! She is wearing a nude sheer overlay Alberta Ferretti dress with a jeweled & sheer bodice. She completes her look with matching nude Arika Nerguiz heels and Cathy Waterman earrings.




I often do not know every designer detail when I do my best dressed lists and Nancy is the one for me this time. But really, it doesn’t matter. Regardless, this is a stunning and sexy mini and hey, at the Grammy’s, you are free to show the stems! This is such a fun look with the printed sequins and complete with shimmery pointed-toe pumps. Job well done!



Ahhhh!! I love Bonnie McKee and I had no clue she co-penned “Roar”. So on top of a great song, she then pulls of a great look for the Grammy’s and I love it!! She looks glamfab in this sapphire blue gown by Memeka by Gustavo Cadile, which comes complete with a full train. So happy for this gal; she deserves it!



Miranda looks glamorous and effortlessly chic in this popping red, plunging neckline gown by Pamella Roland. The delicate satin twist at the waist is a perfect touch! She keeps in the “red” family by using a burgundy Judith Leiber clutch. But for the jewelry she mixes it up — silver bracelets & dramatic earrings by Kimberly McDonald for Forevermark.

alicia-keys-blue-dress-grammys-red-carpet-best-dressed-h724alicia-keys-earringsALICIA KEYS: Cobalt or royal blue gowns always grab my attention as it’s my fave color! Alicia doesn’t disappoint in her selection of this custom-designed, silk jersey gown, with a plunging neckline by Armani Prive. It features a black beaded Swarovski bow detail. She doesn’t go overboard with her accessories for this look either as she is wearing a stunning pair of Stephen Webster “Deco haze” green agate earrings with black and white pave diamonds.



Anna strikes the perfect balance of sexy and not going over-the-top in this blush pink Azzaro gown, which combines details of a crystal detailed bodice, impressive thigh-high slit, & caged bustier. She is perfectly accessorized with a Joan Hornig alligator cuff, Chimento diamond earrings, and metallic silver Barbara Bui pumps.

This is a very minimalist look in a jersey drape, but very modern as well. She does a a great mix with metallics and gold accessories by using this shimmery Emm Kuo clutch and Samantha Wills jewelry.

I have to include at least one dapper guy on my list, right! And tonight, that one such guy is Hunter Hayes. He looks very handsome in this Tom Ford suit, sans tie, love it!
