Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of rocking out during the Opening Night festivities kicking off Miami's Rock Fashion Week at the new and improved Eden Roc Renaissance. I had a dazzling night that was overflowing with sweet Stoli cocktails and a closet full of pretty pink dresses. I was tickled pink when I received VIP status and was totally treated like the rock queen that I am. My cheeks are still pink and flushed from the excitement.
The Pink Dress Collection (on it's second leg of a three city tour that also includes New York and Los Angeles) is an inspiring event that celebrates women, fashion and an overall hope for a world where women can don their little pink dresses, black dresses and multi-colored dresses without having to worry about the threat of breast cancer touching their lives.
A collaboration between the world's top designers and stars, The Pink Dress Colelction featured a plethora of pastel and hot pink dresse donated by top designers from Betsey Johnson to Nanette Lepore, Nicole Miller, Juicy Couture and other fresh faces of the fashion world. My favorite look of the night was this precious little pink and white printed mini designed by Lilly Pulitzer. As a matter of fact, I award it the Pulitzer Prize of pink dresses.
Celebrities and a few of Miami’s finest donated their time and their catwalks to rock some major looks in support of the cause. Local newcasters Lisette Gonzalez (in Nicole Miller), Roxanne Vargas (sporting Sue Wong) and Shireen Sandoval of Deco Drive (rocking Betsey Johnson) all did their little thing on the catwalk, as did singer/songwriter, Jamie Jo Harris and the bad boy of b-ball - Dennis Rodman who proved once and for all that real men do in fact wear pink.
For the most part the celebrities fared well without a single star trippin' on the runway. They all looked absolutely thrilled to be a part of it all in they're pretty in pink pieces, and some even walked with more confidence and oomph than a majority of the model pros. Once the collection hits it's last stop in LA, each piece will be auctioned off with all proceeds benefitting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure fund.
My eye is on you Lilly Pulitzer mini.
