... it's not a hobby, it's a lifestyle

Friday, July 16, 2010


ahhhhh the hoopla that surrounds Award shows.....Most importantly the fashions. Everyone knows you have to bring your A- game to the carpet. Its like its own mini fashion show. Most of the time people only tune into the awards show to see what their fave celebs are wearing. To find out the next hot thing in fashion and of course to talk about those that they felt didnt look so uhmm red carpet ready.

I happen to have had the honor to attend the awards and I must say it was pretty impressive. Kudos to BET. Definitely stepped their award game up. It was fun, creative, and very well organized. Not to mention the performances, EPIC....of course one of my faves was the tribute to Prince, Janelle Monae...is def one to watch out for...she is definitely a dope performer....LOVE HER!!!!...Chris Brown def did his thing, its about time they gave that boy a chance.. we all have made mistakes and have some skeletons lurking in our closets so who are we to judge... Jesus said it best... " Let him who is without sin cast the first stone". Anyways loved his whole performance and the tears definitely real.
Anyways my main purpose for being out there was to style the Simmons Sisters, Vanessa and Angela for the award show. Grueling week trying to pull from showrooms and get their looks together but at the end of it all ...everything worked out perfectly.
Vanessa also hosted the BET Award fashion special "who wore what" along with Fonzworth Bentley and Vivica A. Fox.
The Girls wore custom pieces from their secret society Pastry Line, a collaboration with supertalented upcoming designer Juan Vargas. Vanessa's shoes were by Jill Stuart and Angela wore shoes by Hernan Lander. Accessories by Rachel Roy, Sue Tsai and Phillipe Audibert. Bag by Cesare Pacciotti. Styled by yours Truly:-)
