I’ve been attending different events lately and I must say the Orlando Fashion scene is getting better and better. Last Sunday I attended the much anticipated Life’s A Label Fashion show benefiting local AIDS charities for World AIDS Day. The show was a packed and I was pleasantly surprised by many of the designs on the runway. . I would have to say for me the best looks of the night came from Cheyenne Kimora and Jason Studnicky. Both designers brought a refreshing flair to the runway.
Cheyenne Kimora models walked the runway wearing my current fav look of the season black/white. A hot trend that definitely stands out because the look is so stylish and just about anyone can wear it. The models looked b-girl glam in striking black and fresh white. The looks really stood out and looked great on every model. My favorite piece were the black/white pants with fringe, those were really hot!
From where I was sitting the makeup looks appeared to be winged liner, and a red lip. Models had a variety of hairstyles but overall everyone looked great!
The Jason Studnicky collection was a bit more structured and tailored. Models walked the runway in a slow flow making sure that you were able to see every move and detail of the clothes. My fav look was the opening model who looked beautiful in a thigh high dress with elongated shoulders. The yellow flower print dress looks beautiful on her mocha skin and sublte makeup was the choice to go with these outstanding pieces!
Later in the week RAW Natural Born Artist held its final event for 2012. A holiday Christmas party, the night was festive and Merry! I for one decided to dress in my holiday apparel and it was fun to be glammed up.
Jacket: H& M
Dress : Vintage Halston
Makeup: shimmery ivory eyeshadow, MAC Raisin Blush, and dare I say it black lip liner with black shimmer gloss!
Footwear: Black Alien boots
RAW saved the best for last in an awesome fashion show for the night by:
A new brand of re purposed clothing designed by Anne Benson. Anne’s art is sculpture and her medium is fabric.
Each item of clothing is an original and one-of-a-kind, created under Anne’s artistic direction from 100% recycled materials. re:deux has minimal environmental impact.
Avi Salon provided the amazing hairstyles for the models. He went on to do a live on stage styling for the audience to see, he was great teasing and spraying and finessing that hair, love it!
Another great RAW Orlando event and I’m so so excited to see so many emerging artist getting out and doing their thing.
Until next time Love & Lipstick!

Over the last week you saw me tweet and post about the Heel Hearts Campaign that took place this past Saturday in Orlando, Florida . Well for those that made it out to the event thank you, what a great success it was and so much fun learning about getting our hearts healthy, our butts in shape and our makeup right! And for those that missed well here are a few pics to show you what you missed. I really appreciate Shaun of Dotcha i Artistry for inviting me to be apart of her vision and healthy heart movement.

Today’s feature Friday is long overdue for the uber talented singer J Randall! LM worked with J Randall last year on the video set for his song “Eye Ballin”. The song is all too flirty,crazy fun and full of energy and I loved hearing the song over and over again which is rare! After we shot the video I only saw a snippet of highlighted scenes. Well look what I found the entire video and I love it! If you haven’t heard of J Randall you need to check him out! He can sing his butt off, he’s as cute as he can be and he’s very NICE! I found him to be a talented gentlemen and rarely do the two match up!
