Another Sunday, another awards show, another E! Red Carpet. My assignment was to interview the night’s winners backstage for our LIVE After Party show. What a thrill! (The fan girl in me came out when Rami Malek made his way to me rather sweaty and smelling delicious! I digress.)
Anyway, always an essential and fun part of the day – my GLAM story.
It always starts with the dress and my stylist Becca Gross found several, but we quickly narrowed it down to this dramatic Stello gown. Since I would be working inside and it was a party atmosphere, we felt the strong shoulders and sheer underlay would create quite the wow factor! She found gorgeous ice at Simon G which dripped all over my fingers and wrists. The earrings from XIV Karats perfectly complemented the high neck.
It was obvious the hair needed to be back and off my face to show the neckline and open back. Ashlee Rose Boots showed me an inspiration photo of the double bun and I fell in love immediately. Her execution was total perfection. My favorite up-do ever.
Working with Maria Vargas so often is such a treat because she knows my face and knows what looks work on me and what doesn't. I can hold bold colors well and this cranberry purple haze eyeshadow was just the edge the overall look needed. She always gives me the most dewy amazing skin with the perfect amount of highlight. Seriously dreamy makeup by my friend and insane artist.
A huge thank you to this phenomenal squad and last but not least, Ginger Duran. Picture taker, drink maker, cheer leader. She makes my world go ‘round and I’d be on the floor a hot sweaty mess if it weren’t for her.
Until next year!
