A Night Filled with Vibrance

If the runways of Tampa Bay were anything, they were vibrant and exciting!  The much anticipated Rogerio Martins collection began with a very couture living snow flower, to give it one description.  Next came an abundance of colorful vibrance in flattering silhouettes.  A bit of Brazilian flavor brought to Tampa….what could be more perfect?

Another incredible designer, Lapratto brought surprising splashes of color in the form of ruffles and a stunning over-sized flower.

With so many amazing pieces, you may need to take a moment to let all of the fashion sink in.  I know I did!

The Golden Globes: What Was Your Favorite?

Everyone knows that our only motivation for taking time out of our busy schedules to watch an award show is the fashion.  At this year’s Golden Globes, those looking forward to flashy gowns popping with color may have been slightly disappointed with the surprising quantity of beige.  There were a few, however who saved the night in rich fabrics fully saturated with exquisite color.

The beautiful Mila Kunis was nothing short of a live, shining emerald in a one-shoulder Vera Wang piece.  The color complemented her flawless skin perfectly, and intricate draping sculpted her adorable shape.  Also from Vera Wang, Sofia Vergara appeared in a fiery pink gown accented with a black belt at the waist.  The gathered bodice and draped train provided a unique flair perfect for this event.

Of course, I am not insinuating in the least that bright colors are the only option for high style.  Eva Longoria was absolutely breathtaking in a black Zac Posen gown.  With a deep cut version of a sweetheart neckline and a matching black sash to cinch the already fitted waist, this dress was simply divine.  In addition, beige is not always bland when worn like Carrie Underwood in sparkling Badgley Mischka Couture.

To each her own: What was your favorite?
