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…

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.

Currently, fashion has made a total overhaul and given an overall transfusion to those items that made style in the past, so stylish.  Lets bring forth Exhibit A, the magic of tights A/K/A panty hoses — yes that name makes everyone cringe – but lately, little by little tights have taken over fashion and have become a vital accessory to any outfit. Panty hoses became fashionable as they were introduced in the 1960s to provide a convenient alternative to stockings.  Now tights come in so many colors and forms: neon, graphics, lace, leather, metallic, they are so incredibly chic and they perform their role to perfection.  I guess granny is not old-fashioned anymore.

Now lets focus on Exhibit B, headbands and barrettes.  Besides Gossip Girl, these accessories were only stylish back in the days, mainly in private schools, where girls were obligated to use them in order to keep their hair away from their faces.  At the present time, hair accessories of the best caliber will easily sale for amounts as high as $400! They are so cute that simply it is worth the splurge.

And finally Exhibit C, brooches, yes those little “clip ons” that really had no real purpose but signified heritage and class.  This decorative jewel dates back to the Romans, Greeks and research has even found some as late as the 800 A.D! Today, brooches are used as a way to express your style and creativity.

So look around, do you see any fashion revivals?
