Fashion For Life – Tribute to John Galliano & The 7 Wonders of the World

Update:  I want to spotlight the ethereal Lolly gown designed by *SoliDea FoliEs*, exclusively for Fashion for Life.  It was worn by the beautiful, talented, creative and soulful Cao Lionheart, Miss. Virtual World, South Korea (retired).  Personally, I’m always inspired by Cao’s dramatic artistic styling, the humanity she portrays in her blog and her generosity of spirit.  The Lolly gown embodies all that is soft and graceful, airy and fragile, qualities that personify Ms. Cao.

The Fashion for Life final runway show was a tribute to John Galliano that took place on the  Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 10am SLT.  I was invited by Warm Clarity-Jupiter, CEO of Ghee and unfortunately, I crashed more times than Liz Taylor married.  However, I was able to see the final ‘one of a kind gown’ worn by Frolic Mills, CEO of BOSL and designed by the extraordinary Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey.  Frolic was dripping in 500 diamonds and rockin’ a nice weave.  The gown was auctioned off right there on the runway.  Drama and catfights abound, and that was in the audience.  The auction started at 5,000L and quickly turn serious when a two ladies tried to out bid each other (and at some points out bid themself).  Finally, the price hit 100,000L and everyone was sure that one of the ladies were going to be seen on the grid in this gown….but out of nowhere a silent bidder drove the price up to 140,000L and crazy offers were being thrown in to sweeten the pot (Frolic will style you in the gown for 150,000L, Belle will make the same gown in black diamonds for 175,000L, and a little something about someone sucking on toes,  eeew).  The winning bid was from the silent bidder for 150,000L and one of the ladies donated 100,000L for the black diamond gown.  All the proceed goes to the American Cancer Society.

Following the live auction, some of the exclusive runway gowns were placed ‘on sale’ for 50% off, at the back of the runway available until close of FFL, Sunday, March 17, 2013.  Honestly, the sale prices were so high that I couldn’t consider attempting to justify taking any of the gowns home.  But, I took a few pictures of some of the creations to wet your appetite.  And, if you have not checked out FFL, do so now.

The week-long event closes on Sunday, March 17, 2013.  There are 7 sims, designed after the Seven Wonders of the World.  The Egyptian sim, Temple of Zeus at Olympia is awesome and houses Liv Glam, Body Doubles and Amacci.  The Greek Temple, Artemis at Ephesus houses Virtual Impressions, Mohna Lisa Couture, Belleza, and Bliss Couture.  For a lush and tropical escape, stop by the Gardens of Babylon.  This sim is truly gorgeous and it’s my favorite by far, it houses Tres Beau, Gizza and !deviousMinds.  The far out Pyramid of Giza sim is sensational, just the ride alone entering the sim is worth it….. well for anyone who saw Star Wars opening with Luke speeding in and out of tunnels, you get that and so much more.  The sim houses Chop Zuey, Madrid Solo and Morea.  Up next is the half under water sim, for a lack of better description, Lighthouse of Alexandria.  (And, for all my Steampunk lovers out there, a crazy cool half chair, half eye, half garlic thingie that worth a peek).  Personally, I got a little creeped out here but it could be my fear of seagulls rather than the sim.  This one houses Purple Moon, Boudoir and Carrie’s Lingerie.  And, finally the giant stone man, Colossus of Rhodes.  Honestly, I have nightmares about this dude and my constant climb up his leg.  He houses Finesmith, Emotions and Wet Cat.  For the sim build only and the art, go and participate.  The runway and party lounge represnted the final Wonder of the World, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.  Also, at the main landing point there is a memorial garden, hope haven, resource library and a survivors gazebo, a peaceful and serene escape that you need to see.  Remember 100% of the proceeds goes to charity, so that’s worth taking a look for, right?

Ready, set, pose!

A few photo contests ended this evening, Thursday, February 28, 2013.  I wanted to share my entries with you for the Angel of Angel Dessous, coldLogic Anniversary Celebration Poster contest and I “Love New York City” hunt Sweepstakes.

The Angel of Angel Dessous monthly contest theme was Valentine.  Angel Dessous is searching for the next face of AD 2014 and is hosting a monthly contest that has different theme every month.  The top five monthly contestants will receive a 1000L GC and their photo displayed at the store as well as on the website.  There were a number of wonderful entries this month and I wanted to portray cupid magical powers.  I used a black box Wednesday special, Scarlet lingerie, and paired it with red wings and a cupid bow & arrow.  I also added a fabulous hat from Vita Boudoir and was covered in kisses tattoo. The photo was taken at a magical sim, the Beguiled Art Gallery, and my targeted couple for love was in plain sight….once hit with the bow they were Love Struck!

The coldLogic Anniversary Celebration Poster contest grand prize winner will receive all new releases until February 1, 2014.  For my entry, I paired the coldLogic anniversary mesh dress in black & white, and used a vintage rose sweater as a pull over (free item at the sample sale room @NYC).  To highlight spring, I wore suede boots and handbag in dusty pink, and a beaded floral fascinator.  I wanted to capture a college girl who planned a weekend trip to the big city for museum and shopping.

The I “Love New York” City hunt sweepstakes grand prize is a 2 week stay in a posh New York City Loft.  The object of the contest is to feature hunt items from the Golden Heart hunt.  The Golden Heart hunt had 14 hearts hidden around the sim (14L for 14 days between 2/15 – 2/28).  I was not able to find all the hunt items but I think the gifts will remain hidden because I was able to find someGolden Apples from the December hunt.  The New York City sim is very realistic with tons of areas to use for photo backdrops, new stores to explore, and a sample sale room with exclusive items.

Gloria wakes in her NYC loft and enjoys a cup of morning joe while wearing the red nightie and slippers from Apple May (hunt gifts).

Excited to explore the city, Gloria slips into the Beusy sweater dress (hunt gift) and pairs it with Chop Zuey Pretty Kitty jewelry set, Ploom dipped blond buns,B!asta lavender belt, and The Apple canvas bag (hunt gift). The wonder and joy of the city takes over and Gloria hops on the swings, slides down the slide and sight-sees by the pier.

Spotting the LOVE sculpture from Robert Indiana, Gloria flies high above the city with her heart balloons while donning the {le fil casse} Queen of hearts pink dress (hunt gift), PM Mara suede boots in Old Pink and Frozen Dew jewelry set in Pink.  I also wore the Pididdleceramic floral fascintaor from the Golden Apple hunt that completes the look.  Dinner is next on the agenda.
