Mondo Guerra

Project Runway Season 8 first runner up, Mondo Guerra, was the clear winner in our eyes, but guess we are not eye-to-eye with the judges, this time.  Disappointedly, granola Gretchen Jones was selected as winner for this season.  Personally, I felt cheated as not only did Mondo have a winning streak during the show’s weekly competitions, but also his collection was a total showstopper.  It was rich of our most favorite ingredients color and freshness.

With a Latino-inspired collection, filled with his clear and unique fashion sense, Mondo Guerra is the new king of prints, as he made this difficult art look so effortless! The fashion walking down the runway was rich in color and had a very special treat, images of the Day of the Dead, which were also designed by Mondo. As we celebrate this day on November 2nd, I wanted to dedicate this post to Mr. Guerra’s fashionable interpretation of a timeless classic tradition that bumps Halloween anytime, in the scary department.

We can’t understand what happened to Michael Kors and Nina Garcia this season! But we definitely believe bigger and wonderful things will come to an out of this world, talented individual as Mondo Guerra.

Here comes another Hollow’s eve, full of joy and mystery.  But most of all, it is the time to let your imagination go wild with fun. Every year there are some costumes that override any other for its popularity and just the fun statement they represent.  This year we do the honors of enlisting those few that we believe we will bump into while Trick o’ Treating:

5.    OctoMom

4.    The Fruit of The Loom Guys

3.    Celebutards like Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan

2.    The Jersey Shore Cast

1.      Lady Gaga

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish all of you a great and scary  Halloween and hope this costumes ideas help you ease the hardship of finding that great selection for this special night.

The Location:

The Water Spa at the Viceroy was stunning, surrounded by Velati Candles that provided a very special touch.  The venue was divided into three different levels: first level had two glass suites that offered the “Backstage” experience of hair and make-up.   Suave Professionals ® and Babyliss PRO in conjunction with the amazing team from Rocco Donna Hair and Beauty Art, were in the house making everyone look beautiful.  On the second level, we had the main space, with pools delicately spread around the “floating library” that included the Fashion Lounge.  And finally, the third level had a  unique full bar that provided guests with a wide variety of exciting concoctions.

The show started with a magical fashion show filled with Hispanic celebrities that “floated” over the various pools showing the latest trends for fall, styled by Irma Martinez and her team from Trendy Inc. The night was hosted by Telemundo’s very own Candela Ferro and Univision TV personality, Poncho de Anda.
