WWD X Variety Stylemakers Awards

Variety and WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) joined together on Thursday to create a fabulous and inspiring event for young fashion followers and beauty gurus to remind them, “not only to go to the gym, but also find the light in a dark time” according to WWD writer Khanh T.L. Tran. An important message for not only the people who work in the fashion business, but for those who are living day by day and experience everyday challenges. Stars such as Nina Dobrev, Emma Stone, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Lily Collins engaged in a little “girl talk” while chowing down on some delicious delights like Fig and watermelon radish salad, roasted branzino, chocolate ganache cake, Meyer lemon shortbread and rosemary ricotta tartlets.

They presented awards to many other a-list actresses and actors, but boy were those awards heavy! “This thing is so heavy, so it must be important.” said singer Kelly Rowland who had just given an award to DJ and music producer Diplo.  Kelly had recently collaborated with him on a song called ‘Motivation’.  The former destiny’s Child member said Diplo is “literally everywhere and always looks so damn stylish doing it!”  While Emma Stone presented her Makeup Artist Rachel Goodman with an award. She and Rachel often dine together when they go on trips for work events or appearances. They once stayed out all night eating sushi till 5 in the morning. Emma said, “there is a reason Rachel is one of the top 5 Chanel makeup artists.” Rachel went up to the podium to receive her award from Emma, they hugged real tight. Then Rachel gave her speech. She  warned the audience that,  “I’m a crier, sorry!”  Rachel has worked for Chanel for 10 years.That’s a long time in the fashion business! She said, “makeup for me was a way to see beauty in the ugly world and I’m not going to stop now.” What powerful words.

The last award was presented to  Stylist Petra Flannery who won ‘Stylist of the year’. In her speech she thanked…her stylist of course! “It’s because of her I know what personal style is,” she said. Before leaving the stage, Petra thanked her mother who had introduced her to some of the top designers in the fashion business. She ended the speech with 3 words….”I LOVE FASHION!” What a woman! I’ve heard of Petra Flannery before but never seen any of her work as a stylist. I gotta check this girl out! (not in a “i fancy you kind of way”  more like “this girl sounds awesome!” way lol).

I love the fact that Variety and WWD were able to organize an event like this because it’s not everyday that a designer or stylist gets nominated for an award. I mean wouldn’t you agree? but also one that can inspire fellow fashion lovers to blossom, to do something with their lives and not sit around in the dark and eat junk food all day. I want to one day have a platform where I can use my voice to help girls with their style, to make them stand out more and know that whatever they wear can build their confidence. Whether it is just a t-shirt and ripped jeans or a mini skirt and some heels, they can go out there feeling like a real woman..no a real bad-ass woman!

Here’s some advice for my lovely fashion followers: Don’t settle. just do, be and grow. Don’t sit around waiting for something to happen because it most likely WON’T HAPPEN! Create something, something that can inspire others to do better, to be better. Because the chance to do that won’t be there for very long. So please do as I say and make things better for yourself, for your mind, soul and body, for your own sanity. Because I know a lot of you go crazy when you don’t know what to do with your lives and its sitting right in front of you! Just go.
