StyleWatch: Red Carpet Style!

The carpet may have been all colors, but the ladies were white hot for the weekend’s awards celebrations! There was no shortage of color, skin ans sexy in this week’s lineup, check out the looks below:

BLF fave Dascha Polanco rocked the Heineken-sponsored green-carpet with this red-hot number at the Latin Grammy’s!


Abandoning her grey locs for a more classic style, Polanco let her curves be the star in this simple silhouette with minimal makeup and jewelry.

Model Mauza Antonio brought a well-needed pop of color to the carpet with her leggy ensemble:


This is normally not my favorite color but she rocked it! The peek-a-boo slits keep it sexy without being pageant-y. Love!

And *literally* bringing up the rear on the green carpet was Rocsi Diaz!


I absolutely cannot say enough about how enamored I was with this dress! It allows me to forgive her for this next misstep…


..later this week at the AMA’s. I’m not quite sure what she was going for here. It’s a bit too youthful, I would have liked it more on Zendaya or Ariana Grande.

On the other hand, Garcelle Beauvais shows the ladies how to keep it grown and sexy.


I have no idea why she is attending but I sure am glad she did! SPEAKING of grown and sexy..



Jennifer Lopez is 44.

J-Lo. Is. Forty. FOUR.

Out & About; BLF at Storefront & Repoproom’s “Fashion that Pops”!

Fashion Week continues to flourish and BLF is in on the fun! This weekend found me in Chelsea for  Storefront & RePopRoom’s Fashion that Pops champagne brunch!

Showcasing 6 emerging brands, FTP brought together influencers, tastemakers and fashionistas for a morning of fashion, art, home decor and innovative food. Creative bites were courtesy of Chef Jordan Andino  and LushCakez and featured tasty fusions of flavors such as the chef’s candied bacon sushi, which he enthusiastically exclaimed had been a creation thought up that morning!

Guests were treated to a variety of champagne concoctions upon arrival and were encouraged to sample the savory assortments and pick from the cake pop tree.  Lining the walls of the cozy loft space were designs by Vincetta, Ilana Kohn and more, with music pumping throughout the space courtesy of Soundwall.

Fashion that Pops was a welcome oasis to the fast-paced shows that define Fashion Week. I hope to see more events from the collaboration, and definitely will be using StoreFront in the future!
