Shoppers at the Beverly Center craned their necks (or looked down from higher floors) last night to catch the stylish action at center court as the winners of the mall’s third annual “Show Us Your Style” challenge were announced at a dessert-filled ‘do. FIDM students were on hand making fashion sketches of partiers, and our own style editor, Linda Immediato, led a Q&A with the evening’s judges: celeb fashion designer Nick Verreos and bloggers Jacey Duprie (Damsel in Dior) and Dani Song before they announced the contest winners. What was on the stylish group’s minds? Fall fashion trends.
“You will definitely see a lot of the Marsala color or wine color for fall—the deep grapes, the deep reds,” Verreos predicted. “And another big thing: the near East, the far East—little hints of it, not full on costume.” Judge Jacey Duprie also announced that she has a line of cotton clothing called Splendid By Damsel coming out in November. Blogger Dani Song took everyone to school when she listed her travel necessities, which include The Bible. “Well, The Bible App,” she clarified. Then, without further ado, the winners of the style challenge were announced. L.A. bloggers were given $250 to shop the Beverly Center and find a complete fall look. Who were the winners for the $1000 shopping sprees? Minnie Schedeen of The Stylish Wanderer (Verreos’s pick), Joann Doan of Love Fashion Live Life (Duprie’s pick), and Jaime Walsh of Glam Latte (Song’s pick).
The crowd got in on the action as judges picked one member each from those assembled for a $500 shopping spree at the mall based on their looks for the evening. Congrats to all the winners and happy shopping!
