Sequins to the Stars: Naeem Khan

 Happy New Year Friends!

I saw so many fun, glitzy outfits on new year's eve and it reminded me how much I love the glitz and glamour of getting dolled up. Nothing says fabulous party like some old fashioned sequins! I love that sequins is so in this season. It's popping up everywhere and I love being able to dress it up and down.

Speaking of materials that photograph well; January kicks off Hollywood's movie award season and I know we're gonna see plenty of gorgeous (light-catching) gowns on the red carpet. No designer does sparkly and sexy better than Naeem Khan. He's not only a fellow Indian but he's so incredibly talented and has a knack for creating shimmering columns and elaborately designed frocks that ooze sophistication and embody old Hollywood movie star fashion and flair.
He's dressed countless Hollywood starlets including Taylor Swift, Eva Longoria, and Kim Cattrall and always made them shine. I'm seriously in love with his creations.

One of the shows I really regret not being able to attend last season was Naeem Khan. I mean hello, the stunning and statuesque Michelle Obama in Khan's amazing, shimmery champagne column!

Luckily I had the gorgeous, equally statuesque fashion stylist and friend Nakima Benjamin attend the show and get the scoop on what other treats Khan has in store for us.

NB: One word:  GLAMOUR, with a capital G.

Aside from glamour, glitz, sexiness, and luxury also come to mind. Khan's designs are perfect for women who are bold and confident. I kept imagining J. Lo as his ideal client. The collection featured long flowy pieces with incredible details. Each piece was enhanced with some type of embellishment -- crystals, sequins, or intricate beading. Each outfit would be stunning on the red carpet or for ladies on holiday in Monaco or St. Tropez.

--Interestingly, big, teased Dallas hair
--Makeup was clean, soft, and subtle. Makeup was understated. The clothes and hair were so WOW, the makeup was much more low key and natural.

--Chandelier statement earrings were paired with several of the looks.
--5 inch heels in metallic (gold, silver, pewter) or bold tones (red, pink) were paired with each look.

I wonder who Mr. Khan will dress for this year's Golden Globes. I have no doubt, whoever it is, they will look stunning and sparkly!
