Weekend Review: Ricky “Trendy” Da’Vista’s Wear What You Fear Fashion Show

Heyyy

So this past Saturday, I had an amazing opportunity to cover the 4th Annual Wear What You Fear Fashion Show produced by Ricky “Trendy” Da’Vista. Ricky is a wardrobe stylist, accessories designer and morning host of “Trendy Tuesdays” on Hot 93.7 radio.

Not only did the night focus on fabulous fashions but also on health awareness with the American Lung Association. The show partnered with the Northeast division of the American Lung Association to increase awareness about the Emphysema disease, a lung disease that destroys lung tissue, reduces the elasticity of the lung and leads to the collapse of the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Partial proceeds of the show were donated to the organization.

The Wear What You Fear Fashion Show was hosted at the beautiful Bill Miller’s Castle here in Connecticut and showcased some of the top emerging designers of Connecticut! It was so nice to see Connecticut step up and step out onto the runway with some amazing fashion designs. Some of the designers included Chinnyere McPherson of La’Rose Faschinn Designs, Stacy Lawes of Stacy Lawes International, Carmen Veal of Sani Auri, Bertha Angelo of La’ Moo Deisgns, Yseline Suarez CEO of Vice Versa Boutique and Matthew Reisman of MistirMr.

Check out some of my favorite looks from the red carpet to the runway!

Celebrity Style: Rihanna Diamonds World Tour- Connecticut Edition

Heyyyyy!!!

OMG I have sooo neglected you guys and not on purpose but between trying to stay healthy and all this snow we seem to be getting you cant blame me! lol Anywho, guess who was in Connecticut this weekend??? None other than Rihanna aka @badgalriri! The Diamonds World Tour star definitely did her thang at the XL Center in Hartford, CT Friday night and I’m so glad because she had been canceling due to lerengitis, however she did not disappoint!

Rihanna’s voice was on point, she entertained from beginning to end and I loved how she took moments out of her show to talk to the audience and thank us sincerely for showing support, it was very sweet, opposite of how she is often portrayed in the entertainment scene. And let’s not forget the fashion! Rihanna definitely had some AMAZING costumes for the evening, my favorite being the blinged out halter jump suit not to mention the custom made python white thigh high boots by Christian Louboutin! Check them out!
