Live Review: LPN's Twilight Masquerade @ The Beverly Hilton

The Beverly Hilton was the hot spot last Thursday night as stylish guests in "Old Hollywood" attire mingled poolside at the Latino Professional Network's Twilight Masquerade event. Thrown together by First Class Marketing's Elias Zepeda and sponsored by Moet and Chandon, the event was an overall success. Guests sipped complimentary champagne, danced to live Salsa music and watched a fashion show featuring designs from Paulina Lopez, Howl, Adolfo Sanchez, Devious Damzels and Hecho Latino.

The first designer to hit the runway was Paulina Lopez, who was originally scheduled to showcase her line at L.A. Production Studios but was displaced due to the sudden cancellation of the "Official Los Angeles Fashion Week" event. Luckily, we were able to get a peek at Lopez' latest spring summer 2011 rainbow collection, which featured colorful gowns with handmade stitching.

For the full runway collection, see below:

Next on the runway was a fashion line called Howl by Keyla Marquez, which was the complete opposite of the previous line. The darker collection reminded us a bit of martinMartin, which also featured goth-chic inspired looks. We saw sheer fabrics, edgy designs and a lot of dark designs perfect for Halloween, which was just around the corner.

See our slide show for more looks from the Howl collection:

Adolfo Sanchez showcased pieces from his "2080" collection, which featured designs destined to flatter feminine silhouettes. Dresses, pants and skirts made its way across the runway in neutral palettes comprised of nudes, whites, black and grays. Although the "2080" collection showcased futuristic designs, a relic of the past was thrown in as an accessory. Models wore cassette tape necklaces.

Our favorite looks are featured below:

After the Adolfo Sanchez collection, Maria Peralta's line Devious Damzels, was next featuring L.A. street-style inspired looks. When we last saw Devious Damzels on the runway back in March at Project Ethos, we found the line to be more rough, raw and rock infused whereas, this collection was a bit tame. We saw lace and comfy dresses/skirts that could easily transition from the bedroom onto the streets.

Check out the entire runway collection in our slide show:

Last on the catwalk was a collection called Hecho Latino by Johana Hernandez. Models looked glammed up courtesy of Tony Ynot, who did amazing hair and makeup. Strutting their stuff down the runway, models  sported leather pants, sexy short skirts and bright T-shirts with phrases written in Spanish. Guys wore T-shirts with unique designs.

After the fashion lines hit the catwalk, Johana Hernandez stepped on the runway for her grande finale recognition.

Overall, the event was a great turnout, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we were amused by some of the Halloween costumes. We even saw some familiar faces from previous fashion shows at  L.A. Fashion Weekend, Lauren Elaine and Project Ethos.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."


COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…
