Bloomingdale's Love Where You Live

I had the great honor of styling two fashion shows for Bloomingdale's Love Where You Live Event. The event benefited 5 very deserving local charities. Here's some images from the show I styled for After School All Starts with Shaun Phillips and Stephen Cooper of the San Diego Chargers.

Fashion in The Valley

Fall fashion is looking fierce, and thanks to a fabulous show at Fashion Valley, I can't wait for the temperatures to drop! Riviera Magazine and Fashion Valley teamed up to give San Diegans a taste of autumn's killer trends. Tory Burch opened the show with coats to die for! The Blue Darcy coat had me longing for a cold front to swoop in- and camel color Aaron coat was none too shabby either!
Custo Barcelona did a gorgeous job paring kooky prints together with unique dress and jacket combos. Kate Spade stayed true to the classics, and with the lady-like trend being so delicious this season, every look shown was on trend.
M Mission didn't disappoint with their yummy knits. The long, subtly sheer dress that closed their section made me want to go to an office- any office- holiday party stat!
Neimans closed the show with a Chanel tuxedo to do for. It's easy to forget sometimes how chic a simple tux can be on a woman- stunning!!
Here's to a fashionable fall!

Arctic Chic at Chanel

Never has a glacier been so hot as the 265-ton one Karl Lagerfeld had imported from Sweden to the Grand Palais for Tuesday’s Chanel Ready to Wear Fall 2010 show. Models splashed down the runway in winter wear as only Chanel could fashion. Fur was everywhere ( relax PETA, it was the MOST convincing faux fur I have ever seen) and it looked fabulous. Woven into rich tweeds, it modernized their signature suit, as a trim on dresses and pants, it was a divine detail, and as hot pants, well it was just fur-ocious ( sorry-I couldn't resist)!

As with every runway show, several looks were over the were over the top ( only a wookie should wear those boots), but there were actually some pretty wearable pieces. I am crazy for the graphic print white dress, and the fur worn as a dress... perfection. This is one cold front I won't mind weathering.

Oscar hits and misses

Many in the fashion industry refer to the Oscars as the "World Series" of red carpets. Every eye is fixed on Hollywood's biggest stars as they sashay into the Kodak Theater. Having dressed clients for several awards shows, I know first-hand the painstaking detail that goes into the dress, jewelry, shoe and bag selection. You're not simply just dressing someone for a night, you're creating the look that will be splashed across every gossip and fashion magazine and website. So without any further ado, here's the homeruns, grandslams and, of course, the strike-outs....
Dainty decolletage:
Bare necks were everywhere this year! Gone were the statement necklaces we saw take over the fall and winter runways. Everyone from Jennifer Lopez in Armani to Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta to Carrie Mulligan in Prada rocked a strapless dress with bare necks.

Singing the Blues:
The hottest hue of the season is blue. Cobalt, pastel, indigo... as long as it's blue in tone, it's in! Maggie Gyllenhaal in Dries Von Noten, and Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab looked lovely in graphic prints while the usually flash Mariah Carey finally toned it down in navy Valentino.

Feminine Frills:
Rouching, tiers and layers reined supreme on starletes this year. Zoe Saldana's cascading Givenchy skirt was perfection, I wanted to get lost in Demi Moore's honey colored Versace and Vera Farmiga was a vision in Marchesa.

Best and worst dressed:
Every year, one or two ladies top everyone's lists and a few fall straight to the bottom. My picks for best dressed this year were Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel and the afore mentioned Demi Moore. Worst dressed has to go to Charlize Theron in Dior and Diane Kruger in Chanel- yikes!
