MVW 2017 National Costume

The following is my description and pictures of my walk in the MVW 2017 National Costume competition on Saturday.

MVâ™› USA 2017 Brianna Beresford is ready to share her National Costume that represents the United States of America!! This styling is the result of the efforts of TEAM USA who have worked with Brianna for months to complete this classy costume for the contest. The partners in this effort are Ghee designers Beatrice Serendipity and Warm Clarity who brought Bri’s vision to the runway with elegance and style, Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey Couture Jewellry who searched her jewelry boxes for patriotic themes, and Evelia Verwood of Baxe for creating the fantastic poses.

The United States doesn’t have a traditional national costume as does many other countries. Brianna’s inspiration evolved from national symbols but she didn’t want to wear a flag or look like a statue🙂 The team understood her quandry and the final costume evokes the colors and designs of the flag and the major symbols of the Statue of Liberty (crown and torch). The fireworks add the flair of a national celebration. I can’t express enough gratitude to TEAM USA who put the sizzle on Brianna this afternoon!! Also thanks to everyone who worked to bring the MVW 2017 competition to you today.

MVW2017 – ELIE SAAB TRIBUTE

How lucky can I be – my favorite designer and a tribute to Delypop!! It’s been an awesome contest this year and many of my stylings in the past had used some Elie Saab designs as inspiration! While Elie’s signature style trends to glitter and gold I was enchanted by his flower inspired outfits in his “The Light of Now” show. Actually I have never seen a gown by Elie that wasn’t beautiful sooo my greatest challenge was to represent him with a styling that if he were in the audience he would be standing up and cheering for!!
Mix and match challenges are always the toughest – the greatest problem is finding mix pieces that maintain the character of the original concept. Bri scrapped many outfits in the creation of this styling truly inspired by Elie Saab featuring tulle, feathers, elegance, luxury and WOW!. Thanks to Miss Virtual World 2016 Delypop Cresci for such a glamorous challenge and an awesome year!!

If you would like to see the entire event you can see a video of it in this article with Delypop’s speech today link at the bottom of the page. https://givethescoop.com/miss-virtual-world-2017-fifth-runway-challenge/

MVW CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

Christmas Holiday Styling  for MVW 2017
Brianna wants to stand out at her holiday parties this year, no red, white, or green!! She chose her favorite color combination gold and black, it is glitzy yet classy and elegant. Bri is planning to wear this outfit as pictured to formal parties and for less formal parties she will change her jewelry and exchange her black lace undershirt for a black turtle neck.
She will attend about five parties this year and thinks that using the gold theme she will stand out and not be classified as any special season. This outfit could be the standout at New Years Eve parties as well. Happy Holidays!

Cosmopolitan Event open til Nov 5

I was in the mood to blog this morning so I wandered over to the Cosmopolitan Event which ends in five days! There were so many fun items there I spent more than I should but couldn’t help myself🙂 I have two favorites from my shopping today the TLC Deer Feeder and the Indigo Isaac dress.
I have to share a caution about the Isaac dress it is designed for only two mesh bodies, Lara and HG. In order to share it with you I had to wear an alpha from another outfit and put my arms behind my back so the bare spots wouldn’t show through. This works for photos but not for wearing into town. I own one mesh body and rarely wear it and can not afford to buy mesh bodies just to blog.  Soo I cheated a bit to show you this dress that I love and wish were in classic fit sizes!!
You have time to pick up many great items yet so stop over before it closes at:
