Dance Intensives: Studio Look

It’s important to dress for the occasion, and work is no exception! I have coached hip hop intensives over the past couple weeks, and this was one of my favorite looks.

If we have a networking event with other dance companies, I dress professionally. For ballet class, a leotard of course, and for hip hop I get funky and fresh with it. Having the right ensemble really sets the tone and gets me pumped for the task at hand! This is a hair and make up look I had with a different hip hop outfit. The hoops are from Francesca’s, and I’m wearing Lancôme Hypnose Star mascara.

MTV VMA’s BEST DRESSED

Whilst the Oscars are a time for fashion-trés-classique, the VMA’s are an occassion for funky, fun and daring garb. Many artists get the balance of edge and fashion SO wrong, but these 3 ladies knocked it out of the park! Hot, youthful and still high-fashion! (Needless to say- between these garments and the N*SYNC reunion, I was very happy!)

20130826-073115.jpgTaylor Swift stunned in a floor-length, navy Herve Leger bandage dress. The plunging neckline and chest detailing gives this garment the extra glam factor, and brought her right to the top of my Best Dressed list. Leger scores a perfect 10 in terms of structure and fit! This dress is GORGE on her! The styling of this piece is perfect; great job.

I had a really hard time deciding between Taylor and her BFF Selena for the #1 spot, and I’m still on the fence…that’s how INCREDIBLE Selena Gomez looks in this knock-out navy dress by Atelier Versace! Wow! The thigh high slit, and built in exposures are incredible! She is wearing the PERFECT ensemble for the VMA’s. Completely event appropriate. Go Selena! This was one of my favorite gowns of the night for its unique qualities and beautiful structure.

20130826-073626.jpgShailene Woodley was ab-solutely beautiful in her Emilio Pucci crop top and mini skirt! I chose this for the perfect balance of color with a solid top, and the crop gives it the PERFECT youthful edge that we are looking for at the VMA’s. She nailed this fun look by styling it with classy, pulled back hair, showing off her gorgeous face and body.

All 3 ladies look gorgeous, and I would have put them all in 1st place but it’s fun to have a friendly fashion ranking. Who was your favorite look last night?

Flying Home! Airport Style…

Flying home from Alaska, with multiple layovers … It was a LONG travel day, so comfort was a must! I love this cozy scarf because it doubles as a soft pillow, without the bulkiness of those semi-doughnut neck support pillows.
