Live Review: Styling the Modern Man: Pre-Oscar Gala at Siren Studios

Hollywood's Siren Studios was home to the Pre-Oscar Gala dubbed, "Styling the Modern Man" - The Gentlemen's Closet, presented by Chivas, Barefoot Wines and Ekquality Style Hause on Saturday. The crowd consisted of fashionable men and women who celebrated the one year anniversary of Ekquality Style Hause. Attendees enjoyed complimentary massages and stylists provided grooming tips as well as on the spot haircuts. Party goers sipped on Chivas and Barefoot wines as they browsed the latest in men's fashion from Tallia, Gemelli, Luka Prado shoes, Pocket Change clothing and Naked Suits, among others.

Upon arrival, we headed straight for Luka Prado's table who had colorful, edgy shoes on display. Prado explained that he started creating studded guitar straps two years ago and then evolved into designing shoes.  Musicians Nelly Furtado and Nicki Minaj have been spotted wearing Prado's line. The humble and shy designer reminisced about his days working at a restaurant and how all of a sudden his love of design took off and celebrities are knocking.

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."

A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…
