QUEEN BEAUTY UNIVERSE MAKES DEBUT IN SOUTHEAST FLORIDA

Miami Hosts International Pageant for Models
LOS ANGELES, CA., July 19, 2019 – International beauty and modeling competition – Queen Beauty Universe set for July 28, 2019 at Miami’s JL Knight Center who last hosted a major beauty pageant 24 years ago – the Miss Universe pageant in 1985.
Originating from Spain, the nearly decade-old Queen Beauty Universe competition known by Hispanic and Latino communities around the world as La Reina Belleza Universo, was recently acquired by a US beauty brand marketing company Brodeur Kazanjian Beauty & Fashion in collaboration with international model and talent management company J. Severin Talent.
Dubbed, “the pageant for models”, Queen Beauty Universe has been described by industry insiders as where Top Model / Next Top Model meets Miss Universe. The show will be hosted by Venezuelan model, actress and former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza and Miami-based Venezuelan actor Willy Martin known for hosting EVTV Miami show Chic Al Dia and as a member of the cast of Telemundo’s popular telenovela Betty en NY.
Partner hotel The Hyatt Regency Miami will host 30 contestants from Europe, South America, North America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia. The contestants – models, actresses, TV hosts and performing artists – will compete in swimsuit, spokesmodel and couture gown competitions for a chance to win a cash and prize package valued at nearly $75k that includes modeling contracts, brand collaborations, TV hosting and other opportunities.
“We chose Miami for several important reasons. First, I was born here, and a lot of my family still lives in the area, so it was important to me to bring a business that I love to a city that I love,” said Thom Brodeur-Kazanjian, CEO of Queen Beauty Universe. Also, Miami is where the African American, Latino, Afro-Latino and Afro-Caribbean cultures and communities converge in a really special and unique way unlike anywhere else in the United States, and quite possibly the world. These cultures are big consumers of beauty pageants and love to celebrate beauty, unapologetically. Since that’s what our brand is about, Miami is the right home for us,” said Brodeur-Kazanjian.
Headlining the show are Puerto Rican Hip Pop artist Estacks and Broadway Showtune vocalist Morgane Grace. A special guest appearance will be made by model & actor Jordan Kimball best known for his appearances on ABC’s hit shows The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.

Reflections of MIU Style ’19 Annual Fashion Show Featuring Student Collections on 4/4/19

The latest collections from the Miami International University of Art & Design Associate of Arts and Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fashion Design students. More than 20 fashion design students presented their collections during the show and I have to say, WOW. I’m fairly particular about fashion, but most of these were quite impressive. Flattering to the body, beautiful colors, interesting materials, and some real innovative lines in this collection. Congratulations to all the students, I look forward to seeing more in the future.

Cost:

André Leon Talley has been a fixture in the world of fashion for so long that it’s difficult to imagine a time when he wasn’t defining the boundaries of great style. Kate Novack’s intimate portrait, The Gospel According to André takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.

Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.

Produced by the team who brought viewers The First Monday in May and Page One: Inside The New York Times and featuring commentary from fashion luminaries including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, The Gospel According to André is an indispensable addition to the growing canon of fashion documentary.

On Saturday, Jan. 27, Istituto Marangoni Miami-the first U.S. campus of Italy’s leading fashion, art and design school-will bring together industry leaders, alumni and celebrities for a VIP ribbon cutting and grand opening party in Miami’s Design District. The exclusive evening, hosted by campus President Hakan Baykam, will infuse new energy into the city’s fashion scene and will be the first step to legitimizing Miami as a serious fashion capital of the world. The event features tours of the finished building, a fashion show showcasing alumni designs as well as a high-energy after party performance from DJ Mia Moretti and Margot of the Dolls. The group is known for creating soundtracks for fashion’s most recognizable brands, such as Moschino and Alice & Olivia; opening for major acts like Katy Perry, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder; and for performing at the Met Ball after party, the Louvre and the Guggenheim. The Dolls will be joined on stage by a troupe of voguers, who will amp up excitement for the first class of Istituto Marangoni students in Miami.

The evening will begin with a ceremonial ribbon cutting and cocktail hour at the new campus, where guests will toast to the brand’s expansion. Roberto Riccio, CEO of Marangoni Group, and Hakan Baykam will give their opening remarks and welcome the audience to a first look of the seven-story building. Guests can then go on self-guided tours throughout the space and view the unique mannequins outfitted by Istituto Marangoni alumni, Piazzalunga.

After the cocktail party, attendees will be escorted to the iconic Moore Building, known for its distinct Zaha Hadid installation. The space will be transformed into a futuristic garden featuring flower fantasies and modern motifs. Envisioned by StudioKhom, the concept is inspired by classic Italian gardens and is designed to be the epitome of elegance and style. Guests will be seated to enjoy the fashion show, which will showcase collections from recent alumni Ece Sahin, Claudio Potenti, Lu Xia, Irina Demyanchuk and Armando Costa. With bold colors and avant-garde flair, the show will be representative of the diverse skills and techniques taught by Istituto Marangoni professors. Guests are also invited to use the interactive Istituto Marangoni-branded social wall and photo booth that will be on-site.

At the end of the night, there will be dancing, light bites and flowing champagne, and guests will be treated to a two-hour, high-energy set by the Dolls.

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Five FOMO-Inducing Miami Swim Week 2016 Moments

Have you ever suffered from FOMO? Well, every time I leave Miami I’m plagued by major fear of missing out and last weekend it hit an all time high as Brad and I jetted off to California right smack in the middle of Miami Swim Week. Swim Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year for three reasons: (1) it is my chance to catch up on the swimwear trends of the upcoming season, (2) the rosé and champagne filled parties are always super fun, and (3) I can stock up on bikinis at bargain prices. Alas, this year it was not meant to be for me but I was super grateful that #ThankYouMiami contributor Celeste was able to capitalize on (and cover) the beautiful chaos in our absence. Thanks to her excellent reporting and our ace investigative skills, I was fully aware the entire time of how much awesomeness I was missing while out of town. Here are the five Miami Swim Week 2016 moments that elicited the most FOMO:

1. Miami Fashion Bloggers modeling at Miami Magazine’s Splashion 2016
On Wednesday, July 13 several Miami Fashion Bloggers, including our tot-loving, trouble-making friends Evelyn Torres of Brickellista Files and Kelly Saks Guerra of Kelly’s Kloset, kicked off Miami Swim Week by strutting their stunning bikini bodies down the runway. The event started off like your run-of-the-mill swimwear runway show but the blogger babes turned it into an entertaining affair by putting their personalities on full display. I award full points to Ginger Harris who broke out a flawless bird of paradise pose on the catwalk. (I mean, I can’t even get my leg half as high in the comfort and privacy of a yoga studio.) Way to show the world that Miami bloggers bring it, ladies!

2. 6 Shore Road by Pooja x Jose Cuervo’s #BeachToBar Party at the FAENA Hotel
On Friday, July 15 it was all about the 6 Shore Road by Pooja x Jose Cuervo limited edition swimsuit collar. Celeste reports:

“Right upon entry we were greeted by Jose Cuervo stocking up the pool bar with amazing ready-to-drink margaritas, in every flavor you might have ever fantasized. Although we can definitely vouch the deliciousness of every flavor after trying them all, the refreshing watermelon margarita was our favorite and the perfect poolside companion during 6 Shore Road by Pooja’s Resort 2017 reveal. Across the pool we could see pastel florals swaying in the wind and decorating the crowns and bodies of 6 Shore Road’s girls—until surprise host Adrienne Bailon brought the unique designs over for a closer look. (We were delighted to have the pleasure of catching up with her and admiring the curve hugging one piece she was rocking!) From the collection, the long sleeve one-piece caught our eye because it looked feminine and the model vouched for how comfortable it was to wear. That said, the entire collection was beautiful in its retro-inspired goodiness. It’s exciting to see a comeback of one pieces and those retro high waisted bikini bottoms past generations had the pleasure of experiencing back in the day.”

3. ESCAPE Miami at The Sagamore Hotel
Back for its 4th year in a row, the ESCAPE Miami Style Lounge curated by Annie Vazquez of The Fashion Poet and Peroni was hot, hot, hot. Celeste recounts:

“On Saturday July 16 the ESCAPE Miami Style Lounge transformed the usually serene environment of the Sagamore Hotel into a hustling-and-bustling pool party celebrating Miami’s visionary entrepreneurs. We stopped by to meet local up-and-coming businesses who were showcasing their products on-site. The main attraction was the fashion show launching ZK Swimwear by the beautiful Zuleyka Rivera. The former Miss Universe 2006’s swimwear line may be inspired by her home of Puerto Rico, but thanks to its delicately crafted patterns and tropical vibes fits seamlessly in the Miami style. Pool parties can get messy—especially given how brutally hot this summer has been—so we couldn’t have been more grateful for ESCAPE Miami’s beauty vendors. We were able to keep ourselves looking (and smelling) presentable with our DIY signature scent from Akscent Perfumes, beautifully braided tresses by Blo Blow Dry Bar, and expertly groomed brows from the Brow Lash Brow Bar. They worked hard to us on fleek from head to toe, while we cooled off with deliciously naughty mango slushies by Kryogenifex.”

4. The Mommy & Me Cuteness from Tori Praver of Tori Praver Swimwear and Sharleen Ernster of Hot-As-Hell
To our absolute surprise (and delight), Miami Swim Week 2016 was all about working moms and their super cute kids, with designer mamas Tori Praver and Sharleen Ernster leading the way. In addition to celebrating her 10th year showing her collection at Miami Swim Week, Praver shared some incredibly adorable moments with her husband, her daughter and her son while living our dream life (i.e., daily SoulCycle, green juice, avocado toast and ocean views) at the penthouse of the 1 Homes South Beach. Meanwhile, Ernster kicked some serious butt with the debut of her second collection for Hot-As-Hell and the first-ever children collection, Hot-As-Halo. Hot-As-Hell’s Miami Swim Week 2015 show took us for a walk on the wild side. This year, it gave us all the feels thanks to the show’s mommy (and mommy-to-be) models and their mini-me’s, including Ernster and her two beautiful daughters.

5. “HEALTHY” Rooftop Party Launch hosted by MIKOH Swimwear at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach
Exhausted from a general lack of food, sleep, and “me” time, Miami Swim Week goers need nothing more than a relaxing day by the pool as the weekend comes to a close. The 1 Hotel delivered just that with the launch of their “HEALTHY” Sunday rooftop pool party series on July 17. Fresh cocktails, juices, and bites, accompanied by the sounds of DJ Hannah Bronfman, was just what the doctor ordered to recover from a long week.

Photographs of 6 Shore Road The Beach to Bar Party by Bob Quesada

During Swim Week we were invited to the Beach to Bar Party, the launch of the limited edition swimsuit collaboration between 6 Shore Road & Jose Cuervo Ready to Drink Margaritas poolside at The Faena Hotel – Miami Beach.

The 6 Shore Road collection by designer Pooja Kharbanda, who is an industry leader in swimwear & women’s apparel, was inspired by lazy beach days. 6 Shore Road captures the spirit of carefree days amongst friends. Intended for sipping champagne at the bar and dancing as the sun goes down, the effortlessly sexy styles easily transition from day to night.

The authentic Cuervo Margaritas, made exclusively with Cuervo Gold, are the world’s number one ready-to-serve margaritas and come in six flavors: classic lime, strawberry lime, mango, watermelon, grapefruit-tangerine, and coconut-pineapple.

 

For those of us who count calories, the Authentic Cuervo Light Margaritas offer the same great taste as the original, but they have fewer than 95 calories per serving. These no-guilt margaritas come in three flavors: classic lime, wild berry, and white peach.

We sipped as many flavors as we could (responsibly, of course) and they all tasted great!

South Florida’s in for a hot summer, and Miami Swim Week has just what you need to cool off, look and feel your best. Miss Universe 2006, Zuleyka Rivera, was raised in the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico where the idea of creating her personal hand-picked collection ZK Swimwear was sparked. In efforts to beat the heat without relinquishing style, she presents her swimwear collection at Miami Swim Week’s Escape Miami Style Lounge! Zuleyka’s swimwear collection, ZK Swimwear, is composed of pieces that were hand selected by Zuleyka herself, with the intention of each swimsuit to make any woman feel sexy and empowered in her own skin. When putting together this collection, Zuleyka looked for pieces that had all the qualities she looked for in a bathing suit: sexy, classy, comfortable and versatile. Her collection is filled with fun and bright-colored swimsuits between $20-$80 that create a youthful yet modern line. She aimed to have pieces that can be worn all-year-round, each piece being a fundamental must-have to every woman’s closet.
