Last night, I had the honor of attending an evening of charity and fashion at the Fountainebleu hotel in Miami Beach. The event was sponsored by the shops at Bal Harbour & LANVIN to benefit Project Newborn. I got there in time to browse the silent auction goodies–there was so much up for auction! The crowd was bidding of luxurious things like fashion items from Bal Harbour Shops like Carolina Herrera and Yves Saint Laurent, and weekends at Miami Beach hotels like the FB and the Mandarin, just to name a few.
At around 9pm, IT HAPPENED. The FIRST EVER LANVIN RUNWAY SHOW IN THE USA. The clothes were UNBELIEVABLE. I was situated at the end of the runway by all the other press and photogs and the spotlight made getting pictures kinda tricky. With that said, please excuse some of my photos that look overexposed–I did the best I could! It was such an amazing experience and I am so grateful I got to attend.
Note, things got a little nippy in Miami this weekend, hence the faux fur vest. People here are so funny–it gets down to 60 degrees and people bust out the winter clothes. I love it. Silly Miami.
Such a great experience! Hope you guys like my pictures though they really don’t do the collection justice…
On me: Faux Fur vest, Capelli; Ann Taylor dress, Nine West heels, Walmart belt.
I always read Victoria Tornegren’s blog (er, read is kind of a stretch, since its in Swedish), and I love looking at her pictures. Victoria is pretty consistent in her style, mostly black clothes and stark-white hair with extensions. I think she is a great example of how you don’t have to have a bunch of crazy clothes to look stylish… though it is nice when she adds a splash of leopard like in this recent photo:

Wednesday night, Exposed PR head Sara and I went to the KREL fashion show at the Setai on Miami Beach. The show started about an hour and a half late, but the Setai has such a great vibe it wasn’t bad just hanging out poolside and sipping cocktails.
The models were so over the top and fabulous, with big teased hair and dramatic doll-like makeup. The knit wear was so fun, especially the thick stockings worn under the teetering platforms.
And YES that is my DIY lace trim top from a few weeks ago!
Sorry I have been MIA the past week! It’s been a wild time, I was sick, then I had my birthday (thanks for all the warm wishes!), now I’ve got fashion week… sigggh. Anyway, here are some updates and a lovely photo from my beautiful friend Jenn of us at Evelyn Lozada’s shoe party about 2 weeks ago.
Anyhoo, tonight is the opening night of Funkshion Fashion Week… so time to gather up your finest fashions and go mingle among some of Miami’s most stylish folks. I’ll be there with the lovely Sara Shake of @ExposedPR. Tomorrow, I’m braving the crowds and strutting down a runway (eek!) for the most AMAZING new swimsuit line of Lopez Henrique Couture, previously mentioned here. Friday my big brother will be here, and of course fashion week continues through the weekend, though I’ll be attending the ShopSwagg event on Saturday.
Can I catch my breath yet? Hey, I guess you get what you wish for. For my latest updates, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, @itsmeerikat
