Philly Style Magazine’s Best of Style 2017 – The Most Fabulous Fashion

Philly Style Magazine held their annual Best of Style 2017 party last night at the Kimmel Center. The theme this year was “Around The World”.

Over 1200 fashionable guests enjoyed food tastings from local Best of Style winners, including Little Lion (so many people wanted to know or asked me who was serving the sliders, it was them), Fine Palate (I loved how FP put all the forks in a big box ), HD1_5222 (Custom) Classic Cakes, Seasons 32 and many others while dancing the night away by CTO Entertainment, who’s been playing all the style events for over a decade.

There were so many beautiful dressed attendees, many wearing the very popular neon colors, which did my heart proud. You know I don’t want to see any black during the warmer months; although there are a few exceptions to my rule. It was hard for me to narrow it down, as usual, but I chose my favorite 24 photos. Some of these outfits are good examples of what to wear to a cocktail party.

As I made my way down Broad Street, I notice a fairly large crowd in front of the newly opened Palm restaurant. It’s back and better than ever. I really think the new Palm is going to be the new see, and be scene hot spot. A stand out in the crowd there was Francesca Ruscio looking stunning in House of CB.
HD1_5293 (Custom)Terry D’orsio and Ann Catania, Ten Pennies arrived to the party in style.

Actress Kristen Alderson looking stunning, attended with her mom Kathy. They came up from the shore to enjoy the hottest party of the summer, as many of the other guests did as well. Check out Kristen in the latest issue of Philly Style Magazine, she fills you in on what she’s been doing since she left General Hospital.

I caught up with Joseph Diorio with Buffy Harakidas and her former co-worker Ryann Olivia, who’s now over at Cheerleaders as Marketing Director working with another stunner in fashion – Vivian CamilleBOS17
Happy birthday earlier this summer, stunner Jill Rizen here with fashion stylist to the stars Alissa Frederico. Over the past 2 years her career has just blossomed like the Flower Wall she’s posing in front of; this morning she was live on Fox 29 chatting summer style with Jenn Frederick – down the shore!!

Seriously the best dressed couple where-ever they go, the next, if not now, Philly Power Couple.
This past year they both made big moves in their careers: LR2 Custom tux wearing Brandon M. Morrison is now the COO at PRDC Properties while his lady love Stacey Kracher, wearing Saint Laurent, is partnering with Ajay Raju on projects they will announce soon.

She and Jim looked fabulous on the Friday morning news, and not a hair out of placeHD1_5208 (Custom)Dmitry Aybiander and Irina Sigal wearing her own creation.
BOS17Feeling my age I asked Alexa Scaltrito on the right, if her outfit was inspired by Bo Derek, she never heard of Bo Derek, and our conversation circled the drain with the mention of the movie “10”. We settled on Marilyn Monroe’s famous birthday dress as possibly the inspiration for her sexy frock from Fashion Nova as her friend Ashley Gallo gave us eye popping fashion all night in House of CB.  I think these outfits are worthy of The Kate Beaver – Hair of The Dog Fashion Nod 2013 .
Later in the day when I was chatting with Rahel Solomon, she had no idea who Bo Derek was either, or that Julie Andrews ever flashed in the movie. “OMG not Mary Poppins” Rahel said. Exactly that’s why she did it….

20 Photos of the Most Memorable Radnor Hunt Race Fashions and Hats

20 Photos of the Most Memorable Radnor Hunt Race Fashions and Hats

The Radnor Hunt Races celebrated its 87th Anniversary on May 20, 2017. Thousands of guests were on hand to watch seven races, including the Preakness which was shown on TV screens high above the ground, after 6 Radnor Races concluded. Despite the gloomy weather, most guests dressed in their derby finest, although I did see a few ho hum dull colors dotting the landscape this year which was surprising; attendees enjoyed parading the grounds while party hoping from tent to tent, or enjoying  the races at tailgate parties, in sponsor tents or by pulling up a chair along the fence. All proceeds from the Radnor Hunt Races benefit the land and water preservation programs of theConservancy | Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
PS Please don’t take a photo off for 2 days, but instead link to the site to share the love. Thanks, and my mortgage thanks you too.
