Mandrake Public Relations was yet again present for round three at the Miami Hair, Beauty & Fashion which took place at the always elegant Spa at the Viceroy, this past November 8th.  On its 3rd edition, there was more fashion, more celebrities and more beauty.

Miami Hair, Beauty and Fashion by Rocco Donna

Mandrake had the honor of being in the  middle of everything, handling the Celebrity Suite, where we met many Latin celebrities and were able to chat with them while they got ready for the pink carpet and the fabulous runway.

The behind the scenes was out of this world, as hair and makeup prep was like playing musical chairs while the Spa at the Viceroy filled up with more than 450 people, awaiting the night’s one of kind show.  Known as the event to showcase the latest hairstyles, makeup looks and clothing design, this VIP party was one not to miss, and this year it didn’t fall short to the hype of past years.

Personalities as Marisa Del Portillo, Sonya Smith and Karent Sierra, were a few of the guests invited this year to walk down the runway wearing unique designs from hip urban/chic Ixoye by Rosita Hurtado, full of one of my favorite painters of all times, Frida Khalo.  And designer Miguel Angel MasJuan who couldn’t get any elegant, with his gowns full of colors that exuded style and classic sophistication. How will Rocco Donna surpass this year’s success in 2013? We will have to wait and see…

We are not talking about the exaggerated Geisha-like fashion, but actually one in small dosages.  I recently bumped into kimono styled tops that have been re-introduced in several retail stores.

Kimono All Styles

Found this inexpensive option at Forever 21 for $13.99.

The trick of choosing the right top is selecting lightly loose kimonos that have delicate floral prints, in vibrant colors and have a silky feel.  Now, in order to balance out this loose fit, is to wear them together with skinny jeans in classic blue or neutral colors.  Let them shine and be the center of attention.  In addition, and very important, do not, even if you think is necessary, add any other Asian-inspired accessories.  We wouldn’t want you to go overboard.  The goal is to look sleek and natural while trying this trend.

ImageThe Avengers movie is out now, and even though I love the cool and smooth ways of Iron Man, I can’t deny the fashion determination of Thor.  In its honor, I have been wearing my new finding, the Rose Gold Wing Cuff from Wildfox.  I am completely obsessed with this piece, can’t quite put a finger on what is it that caught my eye, between its glam rose gold cover, its audacious wing design or its super hero cuff feel, everything exudes sophistication with a twist.

Rose Gold Wing Cuff at $75.00

Whatever the case it is, this is a keeper.

Wildfox Couture is a free spirited knitwear line based in California. It grew to offer swimwear, shoes in collaboration with designer Jeffrey Campbell and most recently in launched a funky jewelry line that offers a selection of attractive rings, bracelets and necklaces.

Gold high pumps are so back on!! I can’t remember when was the last time they were popular, but lately this gold accessory is taking over night and day fashion. With jeans, dressed up or with a casual day dress, they always seem to make a bold and feminine statement, which definitely are worth investing.  I cant quite figure out what is it that caught my eye, but their mature and classic look but still soft and young, add a special touch that complements any outfit.

I found these great and multifunctional ones from lulus.com for only $30; Gold never looses its value, lets see if this is right always.

Last week I bumped into one of a kind design by Tirana Jewelry, and was ecstatic as I found the perfect Earth Day jewelry piece. Tirana Jewelry items are made from oxidized recycled sterling silver and brass material.  The creator behind the brand, Graciela Fuentes, knows perfectly well how to balance old with new, as she plays with the mechanical and intricate details of vintage watches, keys and medals.  She creates necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, brooches and cufflings using parts she stumbles upon all around the world.   Her unique and edgy style of dismantling a jewelry item to create a totally different piece while using the same parts, works well with many styles that search vintage/classic fashion with an edge that separates them from the rest. As many pledge to do their part during Earth Day, we invite readers to analyze ways we can all help improve our earth and make it better and suitable for future generations. Happy Earth Day!
