This weeks artist of the week goes to Designer extraordinaire Basil Soda. His conceptual dresses are the must have gowns for the Hollywood elite. Not only does he have an established Couture line but in 2010 he also launched a luxurious woman’s ready to wear line. I had the pleasure to style the beautiful Christina Milian of Young Money for the ROCNATION Luncheon this weekend and I chose this fabulous ready wear dress by Basil Soda. I believe this dress showed off her Hour Glass figure while highlighting some of her best assets. Paired with Shoes by Q by Pasquale and Jewelry by Bijou Tressor I would hope I made Basil proud : )
For todays model Monday I choose the incomparable Barrett Pall. Barret makes our job as stylist easy as he understands his body, his facial expressions and the garments he is wearing. He is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend working with this young talented model that will go far in his career. For all his possitive attributes this model has earned today’s spotlight. For more on Barrett or to see his work visit him on
This weeks must have item are these sophisticated Fendi pony hair booties. I love them for their classic structure and gorgeous animal print. This bootie is a great investment piece for its seasonal transition, wear them in the fall with a solid pant over the boot or wear them with leggings for a flash of animal print on a chilly spring day. Theses beauties are available at bluefly.com and wont last long, get them before they sell out.
This weeks must have item is from Civic Duty shoes. They are a socially conscious brand, which makes their shoes environmentally friendly while also making a charitable donation to hurricane victims. I’ve choosen the “Dedication” style for its unique fabric texture with its classic flair. These shoes are great for both men and women, which make them accessible for daily wear. Dedication shoe is extraordinary because it comes in an array of colors from periwinkle to gunmetal gray. Pair these fun shoes for an on the go look with your favorite denim and a cardigan. This pair is priced fair at a mere $54. Collect all the colors but feel good because its all for a fabulous cause.
For this week I have choosen to showcase the young and talented make up artist Ernesto Casillas. He proclaims his style as “Clean and classic” and highlights a women’s best features, her eyes. His favorite tones to use on the face are gold’s and or bron’z, they give a photo a stunning ready glow. Ernesto has a great personality, easy to work with and Understands beauty make up like no other. I have attached an image which I’ve styled and I believe it shows off Ernesto’s makeup skills
