All You Need is BeautyPublicado: 3 mayo, 2012
What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you see the word power? We usually think about super heroes and all their special abilities to do the impossible. If we mix that with the female figure you instantly have Wonder Woman with super stamina and flying powers that could take here anywhere in seconds. Well, since she’s not your usual lady Puerto Rican designer Stella Nolasco didn’t think this would be a good blend so she chose to present her Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection representing beauty as the ultimate power. If you come to think about it beauty represents glamour and gorgeousness which equals strength that turns into power. She presented her collection “Beauty is My Power” at the Ritz Carlton Hotel & Casino.
Her inspiration went from mythical characters that represented what beauty could attain to far away princesses in their kingdoms waiting for Prince Charmin to cross their path. After the exquisite cocktail the main doors opened to the public. With no ordinary catwalk the room was decorated in hand made chairs floating in the center and precious chandeliers. The runway had an oval shape that rounded the entire room while in the middle you had the feeling of a castle bundled with all its fragments. Chairs, garden ornaments, jewelry boxes where among the article that you could regard and make your own little story of what the designer was going to show you and her story of beauty.
Once the models started coming out in long extravagant gowns you could see all the details from the garments to the hair to the accessories each one of them was transmitted. All the models came out bearing different variations of braided hairstyles which was very ancient and royal like. On top of those exquisite braided styles most of them had delicate and refined head pieces with jewels and stones. Also most of them hadHollywoodglamorous glasses. The garments were very womanly and represented strength in all its potential. Some of the models walked down the runway with words on their bodies painted on with red lipstick saying ‘I Love Stella’. The entire collection had a variety of color but most of all they were all very feminine ensembles in different styles. The designer had her big finale with a wedding gown and a groom. The story related completely until the happy ending. I am a true believer in happy fairytale endings and she brought it all to the table.
