  • Kardashian Sister and Sherri Hill Hit It BIG!

    Many blog years ago, we posted about the up and coming model and Kardashian sister Kendall Jenner. Kendall was just on the scene in the fashion world then, but her break out moment came from a trip to New York with her sister Kim. C’mon! Remember the “Keeping Up With The Kardashian” episode where Kim took Kendall to New York for her shoot with Designer Sherri Hill? Well, if you forgot, Kendall spent the whole day shooting at Sherri Hill’s showroom in a penthouse suite on New York City’s Fifth Avenue!

    Sherri Hill creates couture one-of-a-kind gorgeous gowns… the kind that will make heads turn on entrance! Beautiful cuts with intricate details and embellishments, Sherri Hill’s dresses, both short and long, are Prom perfect picks and give an aura of sophistication! Sherri Hill offered Kendall the opportunity to walk in one of her shows ON THE SPOT, but Kendall was too nervous and declined (much to big sis Kim’s disapproval, but Kendall didn’t want to miss cheerleading practice, GO TEAM!)

    In true Kardashian fashion, Kendall conquered her fear and took Sherri Hill’s offer! Kendall hit the runway at New York’s Fashion Week on September 14, 2011. She looked fun, fresh and fabulous as she strut her stuff on the catwalk in some of Sherri Hill’s newest styles for 2012!

  • Muy Caliente! All Hail the Columbianas!

    The 12th Annual Latin Grammy Awards was held on November 10, 2011at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada! Vegas aside, the title of this post should have been "HOT, HOT, HOT" because it was by far the sexiest and biggest night for the Latin Music Industry. And we've got the pictures to prove it! Modern Family's Sofia Vergara, Pop Icon Shakira, and Avatar's Zoe Saldana all shimmered and shined in metallic gowns. Check out these famous ladies, who all hale from Columbia, as they donned their Red Carpet looks on the Green Carpet!

    Notice anything similar amongst their choices? Glitter, sequins, stones and beading make for Evening Gown Glamour! Unique and intricate embellishments and skin tone flattering colors, all chose a more fitted, figure enhancing cut! Rather than shy away from their curves, they embraced them! Totally fierce and exactly what the world needs more of!

    So in true Gloria fashion (if you  haven't seen Modern Family, you're not living), I turned to my inner Latina. I scoured Rissy Roo's and found that Sherri Hill offers some sleek and sultry styles of their own, guaranteed to give you the confidence of these stunning stars! (I also threw in a Shakira inspiration for my Ball Gown girls!)

    ** Pink Mittens Note ** Shakira went home with a Grammy for Best Female Pop Album!!!

  • Alice Cullen Stuns!

    Ashley Green looked gorgeous at the Twilight franchise's premiere of Breaking Dawn Part I on Monday, November 14, 2011. Breaking Dawn Part I is the 4th installment of the mega blockbuster movie, which first gained acclaim the old fashion way, by book! Green plays Alice Cullen, Edwards sister and Bella's best friend who has the ability to see the future (but according to Edward, her visions are subject to change). Need more info on the new movie, due out in theatres November 18? Visit The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I. (I can't give you all the details, it took me a whole summer to read all 4 books!)

    Ashley Green wore an elegant custom Donna Karan gown with her hair in effortless loose waves, only a cocktail ring and matching red lips. Absolutely stunning, fresh and flawless!

    For much of the fall, we have been posting short cocktail dresses, which work perfect for Holiday parties and New Years Eve, but soon will be the return of the Evening gown. We've channeled our inner Alice Cullen, and can see your future in Jovani Style 17438! The dress is a strapless fitted sequin gown with netting over a nude base and a gorgeous sweetheart neckline. The bodice is embellished throughout the bust with intricate beading and sequins running through the length of the dress in a leaf like pattern to the mermaid skirt. This dress is a show stopper and would make you the "it" girl at your next formal event, not to mention a shoe in for Prom Queen! Jovani Style 17438 is available in Sizes 0-24 and comes in Red, Gold/Nude, Royal and Black/Silver.

  • She's Got Game!

    Alright ladies, now I know most of us cringe when our guys have ESPN on every second of the day (which is safe to say the same way they must feel when we have Keeping Up With the Kardashians on for the 900th time, but how much Stuart Scott do I really have to listen to?!) The only shining spot on the telecast is on Saturday afternoons when Reporter Erin Andrews hits the scene. Erin has beauty and brains and is the face of ESPN's College Gameday! This girl reports on college football and basketball games every Saturday afternoon in an arena usually reserved for the boys! The girl's got game, literally! Incase you're still fuzzy on who Erin Andrews is... She was also on the 10th season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars (She placed 3rd, her partner was that crumb, Maksim).Sherri Hill 2771 - Country Music Awards - Erin AndrewsOn November 9, 2011, Erin attended the 45th Annual Country Music Awards at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. A lot of people have been trash talking Erin’s outfit, but she’s young and beautiful people, get real and stop judging! I have no idea why she attended the CMA’s either, maybe she can relate to Taylor Swifts heartache, but Erin wore what I consider a dead ringer for Sherri Hill.Rather than bore us with the usual evening gown and long trains sweeping around the Red Carpet, Erin glowed in her sequin mini cocktail dress! Sherri Hill Style 2771 will have you at mega watt celebrity status and is available in  a rainbow of colors! Shown in Green/Silver, Purple/Silver and Turquoise/Silver, also available in Pink/Silver, Silver/Silver and Ivory/Gold! Is this a New Year’s party ready mini or what?! In true Erin fashion, report back!Homecoming Dresses, Prom Dresses, Rissy Roo's, Sherri Hill

  • Entourage's Total Package

    The 2011 Espy Awards (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award), which awards the top professional athletes year in and year out was held at the Nokia Theater July 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Always a part of Hollywood’s hottest Entourage, Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays “Sloan” on the hit HBO show, looked F-A-B-O at last night’s Espy Awards!

    Sloan was one of many presenters for the night and killed it in a black strapless Herve Leger by Max Azria dress! If the dress wasn’t smokin’ enough, the actress paired it with gorgeous, vibrant strappy platform sandals- LOVE! Can’t wait to see more of Sloan this summer on HBO’s Entourage, whose 8th and final season premieres on July 24, 2011! (Vinnie Chase, you should have never given her to E for Mandy Moore!!)

  • Music... Runs The World!

    Performances may have been hot at last night’s 2011 Billboard Music Awards (I mean did you see B?), but the Red Carpet was aflame!  Looking for a Red Carpet look? Take a page from Queen B, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Kelly Rowland! They were bringing the noise in more ways than one!  Check out the sizzling songstresses and their Billboard’s choice.  Award winning or not, they were all on top!

    Sophisticated in her long sleeve stretch Lanvin pre-performance, Beyonce, who later gave a killer performance with her new single “Who Run the World”, was presented with the Millennium Award for her career achievements (thus far, because you know she won’t quit!). Go B, Go!  BFF Kelly Rowland looked HOT  in her fuchsia Max Azria mini.  Destiny’s Child reunion, pleaseeeee!? In a stunning sequin blush Ellie Saab, Taylor Swift continued her run, earning Top Country Artist and Top Billboard 200.  She was also nominated for Top Artist and Top Billboard Album nominee.  Presenter Selena Gomez rocked in Dolce and Gabbana (her boy Bieber<3 had a BIG night, taking home an armful of awards and matching in D&G… if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is!) So they looked great, right? Well so can you! Dress like these stars! Similar styles are offered below from some of the top evening designers.  Hot styles just in time for your next special event... talk about deja vu! Sherri Hill Style 1450, compare with Beyonce's Lanvin dress. Available this August in Gold, Black, Gunmetal and Silver. Kelly Rowland's Max Azria is a double take with Sherri Hill Style 2220 (Available in Fuchsia, Black, Red and White),  Alyce Designs Style 8901 has sequin appeal similar to Taylor Swifts winning gown.  Selena Gomez shined in Dolce & Gabbana and you can look alike too in Panoply Style 14392 (Available in Red and Black).
