Winning Fashion

Congratulations to all the winners from the Women of the Year Awards hosted by Harpers Bazaar UK, which took place at Claridges in London last night. Some of the winners included Stella McCartney for British Designer of the YearVivienne Westwood for Inspiration of the Year, and Anya Hindmarch for Businesswoman of the Year. Unfortunately there wasn’t an award for the best dressed of the night, but if there had been, it would have went to Emily Blunt. Her tangerine gown is from Alexander McQueen‘s 2013 Resort Collection, which she accessorized with a black satin Alexander McQueen clutch. Doesn’t she look flawless? xxSharona

Saint Laurent Paris Makes A Debut

Heidi Slimane debuted his first collection for Saint Laurent Paris (no Yves in sight) on Monday at Paris Fashion Week. The show was influenced by classic 1970′s YSL fashions, brought back with a modern twist. The runway was filled with models wearing lace up dresses, oversized bows, capes and many other stand out pieces. Below are a few of my favorite looks from the show, Happy Fashion Weeek!

EngieStylin’ Fashion Week

Last night, EngieStyle produced and styled a fashion show at NYC hot spot Arena. The show featured Dore Designs Spring 2013 collection of spectacular floor length gowns. As famous faces were piling into the audience, the EngieStyle team was hard at work backstage making sure everything was perfect. Behind the scenes of a fashion show is pure adrenaline, as everything you have been working on is about to come together. The show was amazing if I do say so myself, and on behalf of the team I would like to thank everyone for their participation in making it happen! Most of all, shout out to Engie for being super talented and for being an inspiration to all of us!  xxSharona

Black, White, and Glowing All Over

Unless you have been sleeping, you were either in attendance at Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2013 runway show on September 8th, or heard how amazing it was. With a strict palette of black, white, tan and silver, Wang let the garments do the talking. The leather and rubberized twill collection included overlay tops, boxy dresses and cut-outs that came in all shapes and sizes. The striking gladiator sandals and knee high boots with cut-outs complimented the looks perfectly. The show’s finale included platinum blonde models clad in white, and a very cheerful audience as the lights went off and the models garments suddenly glowed in the dark. Now, that’s a finale.

Happy New York Fashion Week! xxSharona

Fashion Week First Timer

Who remembers their first time at New York Fashion Week? The first show I was invited to attend was at the Metropolitan Pavilion in September 2010. Boy Meets Girl, Caravan and Bobi were the three collections showcased that morning. The show opened up with a performance  of “Animal” by Neon Trees, to which the audience sang along enthusiastically. From the moment the first look hit the runway, the energy in the room was amazing. After the show, I was mistaken for a celebrity by Bobi designer Kara Lusardi, and was told by Caravan‘s Claudine DeSola that I had great style. Fashion week is one of the most amazing experiences, and I look forward to it every season! xxSharona

Kate Hudson in Nude

Kate Hudson looked flawless at the Venice Film Festival last night. (DON’T YOU AGREE?) Her nude embellished ensemble was an Atelier Versace gown. Kate looked sexy without baring it all. Her messy updo suited her simple look on the red carpet. Enjoy your Labor Day fashionista’s. Stay beautiful! xxMaya

Street Walkers-NYC

As soon as I get off the subway, I am always amazed with the fashion and style New York holds. However my last trip, I actually asked a few people if I could take a picture of their unique ensembles.  At first I was intimidated to ask others but towards the end I got so comfortable to compliment their outfits. Here are a few street walker outfits I loved! Which one is your favorite? Stay beautiful!

Spoiled With Bergdorfs

Congratulations! Bergdorf Goodman will be celebrating its 111th anniversary this Fall with many exciting things to look forward to. BG magazine will focus on the milestone and include quotes and illustrations from designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and Marchsea. There will also be a section of the magazine featuring men and women’s RTW fashion and accessories created for the special event. A documentary directed by Matthew Miele is also in the works, and it will include people such as Mary-Kate Olsen, Michael Kors and Giorgio Armani sharing their experiences of shopping at Bergdorfs. The film also shares behind the scenes footage of preparing for the renowned holiday windows. It doesn’t stop there, because a book is also in the works focused on insider stories regarding the store and its many celebrity and socialite encounters. Gotta Love Anniversaries.

obsessed with POLKA DOTS

I’ve noticed that my closet has been overflowing with polka dots! How about yours?  I love to mix them with  patterns such as stripes. Polka dots make your outfits more enjoyable when matching them together. I just love how simple the pattern is,  yet can pull off a fun look! Are you beautiful fashionista’s loving polka dots as well!? Stay Beautiful!
