Beyonce and Balmain: A Coachella Love Affair #Beychella #Balmain

I am DEAD.

For those of us who were unable to attend Coachella this year (shut up, I hate my self too) Beyoncé proved that she IS EVERYTHING. Goddess, artist and fashionista supreme. Working her bey-otiful booty for 3 hours she pretty much swept the floor with all of us. This is the only time I will ever say this: I am shook.

I’m talking fashion. Yes, Beyoncé is amazing. Yes her performance was a once in a lifetime experience, but so was her insanely over the top outfits. I was floored by the amazing, never-ending, insane, over the top outfits by Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain.

Look at this and tell me you are not overwhelmed and want to happy cry.

These designs by the house of Balmain realized are beyond the beyond. The original sketches are surreal and show the work of the talent and imagination of a true artist. Realized, they are exemplary and enduring. Sorry Jay-Z you have competition. Beyonce and Balmain are truly, unforgettable.

Didn’t see Coachella but dying for your daily tidbit. Here is one of the only decent copies of the show circulating at the moment. Watch Beyoncé and Jay-Z kill “Deja-Vu” at Coachella.

Check out that outfit on Queen B. It’s just devastating.

Jewelry can be sweet, cute, romantic, sentimental, seductive, enticing and has a full and passionate history. It has has been given as a gift for centuries. Some jewelry is passed down generations, some given romantically or as a symbol of dedication and celebration.

It’s what everyone wants, men, women, my BFF gal pals, everyone I know.

My best friend loves personalized gifting. She adores giving custom pieces, gift baskets, cards, and simply adores bling. This year I want to give her something just as personal and beautiful. However, I am feeling a bit frugal but I do not want anything that looks frugal. I want something FABULOUS that screams I love you, without losing quality.

Thank you South Hill Designs!

Perfect for the holidays and perfect for the wallet, in home South Hill Design parties require no selling, cold calls or unnecessary speeches.

South Hill Designs, started in 2012, in Tempe Arizona. In just over a year they have developed a celebrity clientele, and have had a 400% growth in sales! I did a little research on South Hills Designs and found out they work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Charity work always gives me the awwwz. No wonder they are growing so rapidly.

With such a beautiful, and very unique idea, South Hill is definitely my destination for Christmas shopping. Even my dad is getting something from them.

10/15/2012 Maggie Barry & Michael Antonio Shoes Fashion Show. #LAFW #SS2013 #Stunning (photo/video)

I am a Michael Antonio Shoes fan girl. For a long time I have been wearing, toting and secretly adoring their shoes. I love the style, grace, comfort and sexy they bring to my petite feet. Quite possibly, I dream of Michael Antonio shoes, because they are not only wonderful to wear but a late night fantasy (shhh it’s my dirty little secret).

Michael Antonio Buckled Heels

Maggie Barry is a creative genius, bringing imagination to life. Her clothing has been worn by stars who walk on air and want art in fashion as much as she does. She created Cher’s famous leather thong outfit from her ‘Turn Back Time’ video and she works, and plays with such famous names as Lady Gaga, Miss J. Alexander (ANTM) and uses singer and model Morganne Picard as her spokesmodel for her brand.

LA Fashion Week on Monday, October 15th was a visual collaboration brought together by both of these artists & designers to create a step away from traditional fashion to bring Fashion fusion/footwear to life for Maggie Barry and Michael Antonio’s SS 2013 show in downtown’s nightspot, Exchange LA.

This brought designers, stylists, fashionistas, actors, actresses, fashion/event photographer, trend watchers and the artistic diva’s of the night out.

I ran into Eric of Prep Jerks whose business as a stylist and fashion forward man is booming. Keep an eye on him here http://www.prepjerks.com. He’s got a taste for business, design and fashion that is unparalleled. Go Prep Jerks!

The collection was stunning, eclectic, bright, beautiful, unique and I loved every moment. I ran into friends (Vikki Lizzie, Sabrini Paridisi) saw a freak chic ladies from acting (Bai Ling, Phoebe Price) and loved the sleek futuristic runway clothing and shoes. From the flash to atmospheric after party, this event was a win/win.

Let’s take a look at who and what showed up,

A very HUGE thank you to Bob Degadillo for use of his photos!! He always makes me look gorgeous

Yes men dressed well too. Kilt’s are ALWAY in.

Showing shoes to Eric of Prep Jerks. Available at Bizzy B of Hollywood.

Loved her outfit, classic black with perfect bow topper.

This is how to steal the show. Greatest hat I have ever seen as well. unfortunately it’s a New York city one-of-a-kind find. Sorry ladies.

Best guys to party with. Over bar the bar these guys were cracking me up.

LA girls

Packed!

The most fabulous jacket there. Missing in photo, the sequins attached to this were iridescent.

The show ended with a giant dancing orb

The show tapped into an amazing visual of light with a cross of adult animation come to life. Think Aeon Flux done right. I have to commend and recommend checking out Maggie Barry for those who haven’t seen her art and fashion. The woman is beyond a visionary.

Check out the runway video below (I was in an uncomfortable position making, however it somehow made great footage).
