AN AFRICAN QUEEN IN THE MAKING!
I am absolutely loving Larissa Loughlin (played astutely by Freema Agyeman @FreemaOfficial) in this #Vintage #Treasure #Top! It’s such a royal eye-full I don’t know where to begin! It’s a crew neck, long sleeve black top with a spectrum of sequins in blue, lilac, mint, and rose gold with bird and flower emblems! A totally fantastic find unearthed by my team, probably from Cleopatra’s heirlooms. I mean, from afar she has the aura of an Egyptian queen… And her Phillip Lim butterly and flower pants accent it beautifully with touches of black, aqua, periwinkle, violet and plum!
Are you loving her, too? See the inspiration for Larissa’s style on my Pinterest!

THE BIRTH OF “THE CLEAVAGE RHOMBUS”
“Who needs accessories when you have an amazing Couture cut out tuxedo by Maxime Simoens?! Serena is no nonsense in this episode, so I wanted her formal wear to be fierce, severe, and traffic-stopping,” Daman explains. “New York Magazine actually called me the inventor of the “Cleavage Rhombus” for this inspired couture creation. So be it! I wanted her looking FIERCE!”

“Opening night of the ballet at Lincoln Center is a very hot NYC ticket and so is Serena!” Daman gushes.
“Breathtaking by the fountain, I wanted our gang to embrace a soft Degas inspired palette.
This Couture Zuhair Murad fit the bill! To give the dress an airier feel and show off S’s killer gams, we actually shortened the the floor length grey under-skirt to a mini!”
The high hem with a low train is what we call Hi-Lo! It’s one of the trends I recommend for Prom 2013.

The night I hosted Fashion’s Night Out with Vera Wang in her NYC Soho boutique I had the pleasure of meeting jewelry designer Magdalena Stokalska. Vera and I each invited a handful of our respective Twitter followers, and Magda was among those on my list, chosen to join in the festivities on that nights special occasion. One thing led to another and we received sample pieces from Magda’s jewelry collection. Goes to show you, if you’re open to new possibilities, expanding your horizons, and you’re prepared… you can go just about anywhere you want to go.
