Glam, glitz and true runway style were abound at the Beverly Hills Fashion Festival on Saturday November 6th. Decked out with posh seating, tented areas for eating, and pop up boutiques, the BHFF was a sight to be seen. Hosted by Jonathan Antin of Bravo’s Shear Genuis and Blowout, the day was slick and sleek just like his hair. The red carpet brought out the celebs, such as Paul Sorvino, Adrienne Maloof and Mischa Barton. Not only did celebs show up, some also had products to show!
Mischa Barton was also in attendance to promote her own handbag line which was a part of the pop-up boutique. I love the color palette and the different styles. There was definitely something there for everyone! Paul Sorvino showcased his art, while Custo Barcelona brought the clothes. Perfekt Beauty was my favorite vendor, which sold an amazing sweat and water resistant foundation called Skin Perfection Gel. I tried a sample of it and my skin was flawless. I have been on the search for a product that would work well on my face without spending too much and I believe I’ve found it!
On the red carpet I spotted Merle Ginsberg from Launch My Line, interviewing celebs as they came down the red carpet. I love her on the show and her designs which were all convertible. I asked her if she launched her line and since she didn’t win the show it didn’t happen. She did say people have been asking where can they buy her items including myself! I hope someone will invest in her. Maybe she should try out for Shark Tank?
Another contestant from the show, Vanessa Gonzalez, came to the event along with her boyfriend. Staying true to her vintage, cooky style, she looked amazing from head to toe. He boyfriend also had on an amazing jacket he made himself. She’s is still running her events company and hopefully she will launch her line as well!
There were four runway shows, featuring Elie Tahari, Teresa Rosati, H. Lorenzo and William Rast. Part of the proceeds for this event went to charities picked by the designers and the food sales supported St. Vincent Meals on Wheels.
This was a fashionable, fun event that brought the finest in food, vendors and fashion to Beverly Hills. If you weren’t there, make sure you go next year!
