Chagoury Couture's Fall/Winter 2012 Sneak Peek

Love this dress, love this model who stuck a pose for me.

It's no secret that I love Chagoury Couture and you've seen me in their gowns here, here, and here.  So when I was invited to take a look at their Fall/Winter 2012 collection, I immediately called my stylist, Roni B. and told her she was going to come with me.  Yep, that was an order.  Gilbert Chagoury creates amazing silhouettes for women that drape and hug the body in such a flattering way.  Every time I put on one of his gowns, I feel good about what I am wearing and how my body looks.  That is a hard thing to accomplish since women are so notoriously critical of their figures.

The evening was all about "Philanthropy of Fashion" to create awareness for the Children of War Foundation where twenty percent of the evening's proceeds were donated to the charity. The keynote speaker was Dr. Mark Urata, the Chief of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.  He spoke of his work with children who had cleft palates and how they were often mistreated in their cultures because they different.  With simple procedures to correct the cleft palate, the children were able to go on to lead normal lives.  Small things can make a big difference.  Dr. Urata's work has also been seen on a bigger scale working with separating conjoined twins.  His work truly is a miracle.  To learn more about the foundation or to donate to the cause, click here.

Now, here is what you have been waiting for, a sneak peek at Chagoury Couture's Fall/Winter 2012 line.  I think my Oscar dress is in here, can you pick out which one it is?

 I love this color.  Perfect for the red carpet.

 The flowing lines of this dress is what captured my attention.


 Look at the incredible beading on this dress.  

 Every angle is consider with a Chagoury Couture gown. 

 Divine.......


 I love this shot from the window, very Toulouse-Lautrec inspired lighting.  You can see how packed the event was.

 Roni B!

Me in my new Ted Baker dress from this event. 

Many thanks to Gilbert Chagoury and Marco D'Angelo for the invite to the event and for always being so gracious in letting me wear their designs on the red carpet.  It's such an honor and privilege.

  2. Me too!  I have to get my press credentials first.  That's the big hurdle.  :)

  3. I would love to see the rest of that beaded gown. Looks gorgeous! The first one is stunning too. Just let me know what you pick and when you're going to sell it. (And then when you're going to invite me to an event where I could actually wear it...)
    xoxo

    1. I actually borrow the gown for the night, so like Cinderella....it gets returned the next day. Sigh.
