Good Morning, Fashionistas!
Since I have thrown a lot of these photos up on Facebook and Twitter, here are a couple of my outfits that hit the red carpet in the past few months. Let's go back to a May 20, 2009 and the recycling of wardrobe from seasons long gone by. I had only an hour to get ready for this premiere since it was a last minute call to cover it.
I took my royal blue Guess shirt that I bought for a trip to Mexico in 2007 and paired it with an Ann Taylor Loft sequined skirt from last summer. They work perfectly together, but I needed a good heel for the skirt. I found my sparkly silver Guess stilettos to accompany the ensemble. The shoes were bought for New Year's Eve 2006/2007 and I doubt this will be the last time you see them! While they are not the shoe to go walking all over LA in because of their 4" heel, they are perfect for the red carpet. In fact, I even wore them to the 2007 Academy Awards. Now, the all important accessories: the earrings were a find from Target or "Tar-jeeeh", my favorite store for costume jewelry, and the ring (which is hard to see in this photo) was designed by Alexander Kalifano, a vendor from my days as a host at ShopNBC. If you are ever in Las Vegas, his stores are all over the Paris and Bally's properties.
The red carpet was fantastic and fun. The night included interviews with Keenan Ivory Wayans, Damien Dante Wayans, and Heather McDonald who told me all of the Wayans Brothers smelled good. And you know what? She was right! I was the recipient of many hugs that night from the Wayans Brothers after mentioning Heather's observation. Also, the cast from the remake of Fame joined the gang on the red carpet. The movie debuts on September 25, 2009 and I cannot wait to see it. The trailer is amazing and I already put the word in to the MGM publicity department that I have to be there to cover the premiere.
