MVW 2017 Style Challenge #1

MVW 2017 Official Meeting

Today was an exciting day for the “Misses” competing in Miss Virtual World 2017.  All 24 of us met for our first official meeting with Reign and DiamondGem, the CEO and COO of the Miss Virtual World organization.  It simply wouldn’t be MVW if a style challenge wasn’t attached to the event!  We were asked to create a look inspired by the following Fall trends, using at least three different designers and no “off the rack” outfits.

I had many similar elements to create the all black look above (4th from the left), but was afraid it would look too much like I tried to simply recreate that outfit.  I then started gravitating to the pink look above (second from the left) and let that inspire me along with inspiration from some of the other styles in the photo.  Coats seemed to be a theme in the suggested fall trends so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into the look.  I’ve been wanting to wear this trendy fur coat by David Heather, and I loved the way it looked with the sequined high waist skirt by Tres Blah.  I added the pearl bib by United Colors as my top for a feminine and opulent feel.  The vintage Paper Couture hair I chose was inspired by the slick hair in look #3 above, and I added a hair ornament inspired by the ones in look #2 above (and also because I wanted to feel like a Queen at our first meeting…wink, wink).

Colour of Couture Runway Challenge “DSquared2”

Meet me at the Tiki Bar

CoC DSquared_full CoC DSquared_Close

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.

Happy weekend lovelies 🙂  There are few things I enjoy more than chilly camping trips down here in Southern Lousiana, armed with guitars, drums, wine, and good friends.  This outfit was one of my favorite finds at the 2014 Hipster Fair, and almost every piece of it is included even down to the cute hearts on my face.  I tried to show all of the great details.  So much fun!
