What to wear to: Stakes Day

There are two things you need to know about Stakes Day at the spring racing carnival. The first is that it’s Flemington Racecourse’s last carnival day. The second is that it’s also known as Family Day at the races. Usefully, both these things lead us to one conclusion- you will be exhausted by Stakes Day.

By Stakes Day, you’ll want to burn the uncomfortable heels you wore consistently throughout the week. But to no avail! You promised us that you’d wear heels (see provision 1 in our Charter of Racewear Fabulosity). Oh ok, we’ll let you off the hook for Stakes Day – you’re allowed a pair of comfy wedges. After all, we are but a benevolent fashion dictator.

You’ll also probably be a little burnt by Stakes Day, so pop on your hat in place of a sun-unresistant fascinator. Also, remember that kiddies will be running amuck, so keep your mini skirt for next time and wear an elegantly kid-friendly maxi dress.

Finally, f you’re thinking about tottering to the races with your tot, we’ve created little lady’s racewear outfit in the same style as our womenswear outfit. Ain’t it cute?

 Here’s how you get our big lady and little lady’s look!

Bag by L.A.P.A, dress by Topshop, hat by West Coast Wardrobe, shoes by Steve Madden, earrings by Dori Csengeri, little girl’s dress by Gumboots, little girl’s sunhat by Bebe by Minihaha.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Sacramento, CA (October 15th, 2012) – Beverly Johnson, The First African-American Supermodel, is Ladybrille Magazine Woman of the Month for October 2012.

The Ladybrille ‘Woman of the Month is a monthly feature on Ladybrille magazine which celebrates women, locally and internationally, for their brilliant contributions to their communities and society at large.

Beverly Johnson’s stunning features and superstardom landed her on the cover of Vogue magazine in 1974, making world history as the first black model to ever grace the acclaimed magazine’s cover, and forever changing the beauty ideal in the fashion world.

Beverly’s remarkable career, which spans three decades, is a showcase of accomplishment: from model to mom to actress, author, activist, businesswoman, TV personality, and—finally—icon.

As a model in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, Beverly appeared on more than 500 magazine covers from Glamour and Cosmopolitan to Essence, Ebony and French Elle. She has thousands of editorial pages, and hundreds of advertising campaigns to her credit. Her success during the 70s and 80s transcended race as Beverly became a household name. She signed with the Ford Modeling agency and was one of the highest paid models in the industry in a very short period of time. Her work wasn’t limited to print; Beverly also worked the runway for such designers as Yves St. Laurent, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Halston.

In the 1970s, Beverly embarked on an acting career appearing in such feature films as Ashanti, Deadly Hero and The Baron. She continued her acting career throughout the 1990s and more recently, appearing in movies, including Meteor Man, National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon, 54, How to Be a Player and Crossroads. She also added TV to her portfolio, playing guest roles on popular shows as Martin, Law and Order, 3rd Rock from the Sun and Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns. For two seasons Beverly appeared as a judge on the reality show She’s Got the Look, which launched in the spring of 2008.

In the 1990s, Beverly appeared in Revlon’s “The Most Unforgettable Women in the World” legendary campaign. She also penned two books, Beverly Johnson’s Guide to a Life of Health and Beauty and True Beauty: Secrets of Radiant Beauty for Women of Every Age and Color.

Throughout her career, Beverly has been active in charity work and speaking out about health issues. In the 1980s Beverly worked as an AIDS activist and continues to this day to support health issues affecting gay men. During the Clinton era, Beverly was appointed the Ambassador of Goodwill to the Fashion Industry to help with the elimination of sweatshops. In 2008 she became the national spokesperson for Ask4Tell4, a campaign that seeks to educate women about the options available to treat uterine fibroids, a painful condition that affected Beverly’s life for more than 10 years. In the fall of 2008, Beverly appeared on NBC’s Today Show to discuss the protocol for the Ask4Tell4 campaign.

A media mainstay, Beverly is often called upon to speak about beauty, fashion, style, hair, fitness and health. She has interviewed with many news outlets and TV shows, including OPRAH, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Good Morning America and The View.

Beverly paved the way for future African-American women in the fashion industry and set the standard for models venturing outside the industry. She would eventually become the first “modelpreneur” with the launch of the Beverly Johnson Hair Collection. She unveiled a new e-commerce site—BeverlyJohnson.com—featuring a luxurious line of haircare, bath & body and skincare products in late 2011. In February 2012, Beverly introduced the Model Logic haircare line and Beverly Johnson Drawstring Ponytails at select TARGET stores nationwide. In the summer of 2012 she brought The Beverly Johnson Luxurious Lifestyle Brand to Frederick’s of Hollywood, featuring hair, bath & body and skincare product lines—Model Logic, Beautiful Body and Flawless Skin.

“We could not think of a personality more fitting to celebrate as our Woman of the Month for October than Supermodel Beverly Johnson,” said Uduak Oduok, Editor-in-Chief for Ladybrille Magazine. “Beverly embodies all that the Ladybrille (brilliant) woman is about: intelligence, beauty inside and out, a genuine care for her community, giving back and so much more. We are truly honored to celebrate her this month.”

“I appreciate the honor, and there is nothing better than being a part of a group of celebrated, intelligent and hardworking women,” said Beverly Johnson on being honored as Ladybrille Woman of the Month.

Beverly Johnson’s interview will be published on Wednesday October 17th, 2012 on the magazine’s website at www.ladybrillemag.com.

Fatima Lopes, Spring-Summer 2013, Paris

IMG 8101

Dans le Jardin d’Eden, la nouvelle Eve fantasmée de Fatima Lopes frise la mise à l’index. Le Théâtre du Chatelet s’était pour l’occasion transformé en véritable forêt amazonienne pour ce deuxième défilé du printemps/été 2013 parisien. Fantasmée, la nouvelle silhouette l’est d’un ancien voyage dans des îles paradisiaques.

La ligne et les découpes futuristes contrastent ainsi avec un imprimé au motif kaléidoscopique de plantes, d’arômes et autre oiseaux de paradis. Les robes sont, dans la majeur partie du temps courtes et coupées genoux. Les nombreuses découpes laissent entrevoir ici une épaule, une hanche on bien même un dos, la un décolleté plongeant ou encore tout une cuisse et donnent à la silhouette Fatima Lopes une sensualité affirmée a la limite de l’indécence.

Les nombreux arômes dorés utiliser en accessoire comme collier, manchette ou encore minaudière rehaussent l’élégance et donne le coté  » natural chic « . La longueur apparaît finalement pour accentuer la féminité comme cette longue jupe fendue noir ou ce pantalon 6/7 à pinces. Fatima Lopes nous livre ici une très belle collection personnelle d’une femme épanouie, en pleine floraison.Dans le Jardin d’Eden, la nouvelle Eve fantasmée de Fatima Lopes frise la mise à l’index.
