-Styling Bianca Rae For The Red Carpet.|
i Heart Marina
Hey guys! So, this is my first article on the blog for 2018. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year’s Eve!
The 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival officially opened Hollywood’s red carpet season on Sunday, January 2nd, 2018. The event was filled with talented celebrities and head -turning red carpet gowns.
I had the honor to style my amazing client, Bianca Rae, an award-winning news anchor for ABC’s Channel 3 KESQ station. I’ve been working with Bianca for over 5 years now and I must admit it’s always been fun and never a dull moment with her.
This year, Bianca has asked me to find her a red carpet dress for Palm Springs International Film Festival held in Palm Springs, California. She wanted something that is long, elegant, glamorous and more feminine.
After trying on several beautiful gowns from different showrooms and designers, Bianca and I have decided to go with the off-the shoulder millennial pink Fouad Sarkis Couture gown from Regard Style House / MNM Couture. I have also been working with Mr.Sarkis for several years now and I will say this, his designs are just so impeccable, original and breathtaking! I have styled a few celebrities in the past in Fouad Sarkiss Couture gowns for their red carpet events. Additionally, I have also worn his gowns a few times for my red carpet events. My favorite Fouad Sarkis gown that I wore was when I judged IVBF’s Fashion Show in Temecula, CA.
Back to Bianca’s dress, what I loved about her pink gown is that it was exactly what Bianca was looking for …something soft, silky and elegant. Something that you’d wear to a royal ballroom.
As for her hair, Bianca prefers to have her hair away from her face while she is on the red carpet interviewing celebrities. So, we decided to have an elegant up-do accented with a one-sided stunning crystal-studded hair wrap. This accessory was actually a special limited edition hair piece designed by Marcela Cosmetics.
Bianca’s make up was very elegant and soft just like her dress with soft-smokey eyes and light pink lips. I think this was Bianca’s best red carpet look ever.
Some of the celebrities that Bianca had the pleasure to interview include…
1. Gal Gadot, the Wonder Woman who was wearing Esteban Cortazar. By the way, Gal loved Bianca’s red carpet look. I’d have to say, it’s always so flattering when your client is being complemented for her look by a celebrity when on the red carpet.
2. Mary J Blige
3. Allison Brooks Janney, a seven-time Primetime Emmy Award winner.
4. Armand Douglas “Armie” Hammer
4. Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., known as Common
5. Timothee Hal Chalamet
6. Mary Hart, the host from Entertainment Tonight. Mary also hosted the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival
7. Laura Elizabeth “Laurie” Metcalf
8. Saoirse Una Ronan
