Red Carpet Ready

alina-malibuEvery time I am in LA I feel that I have to be Red Carpet ready 24/7. When I think about the style and looks of LA, this is what comes to mind: obsession with fashion, vanity, tan, slim, high heels, extravagant and chic. This city keeps you on your toes. You watch what you eat and you watch what you wear. Because who knows you may dine next to Steven Spielberg or bump into Arnold Schwarzeneggerr on Sunset Boulevard like it happened to me last year. So make sure you have your SPA treatments, makeup and hair done before you are out of the door. The best place to pumper yourself is Bel Air Hotel located in a lovely green oasis of palm trees, and maze of gardens. The bungalow style rooms create the atmosphere of harmony and relaxation. This exclusive and stylish hotel has been recently renovated and La Prairie Spa is one of the best new additions. I would go for Maximum Indulgence option from a SPA menu, where you can get a La Prairie signature facial, manicure and pedicure at the same time. 1.5h and $385 later you will look fresh and glowing. Professional hair styling by Joseph Martin will get you your dream hair for the award shows, business events or any other special occasion. While you are getting ready you may enjoy a light snack from Wolfgang Puck restaurant, so try Original Nancy Reagan salad or delicious blue crab cakes.

sohohouseWhat to wear for your night out? Tricky question…This is what you shall keep in mind. It doesn’t matter if you are going out to a nightclub or if you are meeting someone at the elegant members-only Soho Club. LA is all about standing out. LA style is the opposite of bohemian and casual wear of New York. Forget your trainers and flats at home and put on the highest heels you can find. Giuseppe Zanotti, Christian Louboutin, and Jimmy Choo are my first choice. Find bright colors, elegant but provocative apparel. It doesn’t have to be too flashy, too short and too sexy. It has to be just enough racy to boost imagination. I would go for Dolce & Gabanna, Tom Ford or Gucci dresses and tops. Try to wear eye catching jewelry, sparkling bling, and hair accessories to create a fashion forward look. I prefer to accessorize with Pucci scarfs, Bulgari earrings from a Diva collection and Hermes bracelets such as Rivale Double Tour. Enjoy LA!
