For those of you who have been following the 2014 Colour of Couture Top Model Competition, I thank you for your support! This amazing experience is nearing an end, and our final runway challenge before the grand finale and crowning of CoC was our interpretation of the RL Spring 2014 DSquared2 Collection. This collection was inspired by 1950’s bombshells and was just dripping with old hollywood sex appeal. From the tousled curls to the legs with no end…this collection was all about femininity.
I took my inspiration from the Monochromatic section of DSquared2’s Spring/ Summer collection. There were a few black and white looks which I felt really exuded old Hollywood glamor and sex appeal. I knew I wanted to show LOTS of leg, and to do so with a retro high-waisted bottom. I loved the rich look of a snow-white outfit with black accents on the shorts, bra, and jacket.
Many of the models in the collection were seen in big-brimmed sun hats and cat eye glasses so I knew I wanted that to be a part of my styling. I also stuck with soft retro waves and coral colored gloss which I noticed on many of the models, particularly in the monochromatic designs. The over sized tote bag features a crocodile print which I chose after seeing it on some coats in the collection. I completed the look with some statement earrings and an elegant brooch for an elegant finish to the look.

Hello lovelies! Today I decided to have some fun with my big ole collection of Loovus Dzevavor pieces and put together a sunny and colorful new Spring look. One of the things I love most about the entire LD line, is that it practically screams “mix and match me”! You will see this in the wild patterns paired together intentionally in sets, as well as in the fierce and fresh styling of the LD Models in the ads, blogs, and publicity photos. Such was the case when I laid out my LD separates and played dress up, I hope you will like the result!

It’s past midnight lovelies but I am so amped up with today’s good news that I just can’t stop 🙂 My dear friend and Mom Charltina Christenson is back with us (thank you God!) and doing what she does best…creating one of a kind statement creations woven with love and faith and the family we call “Charltina’s” here in SL. Charltina passed me this lovely treat the other day and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. It evokes pure positivity and a sunny new outlook which is just the kind of vibe we at Charltina’s are sharing with the return of our leader. Perfect for sunny spring days, “Oriental Sunrise” is classy and feminine with a fun asian flair. I enjoyed using that as my inspiration playing dress up today for all of you!

Cheers lovelies! Today I was honored to walk in the live casting for the 2014 Colour of Couture Competition. If you recall the post from February 12, you will remember just how excited I was to submit for this wonderful competition. Well, luckily from those photos I was chosen to walk in front of the CoC judges, an esteemed panel of well known power houses in the SL fashion industry. The next day I was asked for an interview in ModeLS magazine! Check it out here:
Our task for the live casting? Create a look inspired by the Spring ’14 collection of Giambattista Valli. Here are a few pictures which inspired my creation today…
I had a great time today sharing the runway with some good friends of mine and many people I admire greatly. After changing my styling about 8 times I finally settled on the look you see above, which I felt showed enough leg, asymmetry, and bold color to do Mr. Valli’s creations justice. Luckily the judges agreed, because I am now officially one of the 16 candidates chosen to compete in this years competition! (And I can’t stop smiling).
