WEDDING BELLE…

Chanel Iman Is A Model Bride!

Mr. & Mrs. Sterling Shepard

While Tinsel Town was in Academy Awards mode this past weekend, top model Chanel Iman had her own major production: her wedding! The Victoria’s Secret favorite jumped the broom with New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard in her hometown of Los Angeles. The beautiful ceremony was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel with guests, including Gabrielle Union-Wade, Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn, joining the happy couple. The bride wore two breathtaking Zuhair Murad dresses: a gown detailed with floral appliqués and a cape accent and veil for the ceremony and a blush pink gown for the reception. The new Mrs. Shepard opted for a sleek upsweep under her veil while taking her vows then switched to a long, wavy style swept up on one side with a bejeweled hair accessory at the reception. Congratulations to the happy couple!

The bride let her hair down at the reception and swapped out her wedding ensemble for this pretty blush gown.

Styled, Gifted & Glammed!

ORS Olive Oil Takes NYFW In Style

ORS Olive Oil hosted a VIP Style Salon & Gifting Suite to kick off New York Fashion Week last Friday. The invite-only experience consisted of top media and influencers who enjoyed the many offerings of the style suite. The ORS Glam Team provided dry hairstyling for guests using ORS Olive Oil products—featuring its new refresh packaging and reformulated products including Sheen Spray and its Edge Control (the new products are available in stores).

A special panel discussion on “Women of Color in Fashion & Beauty” was also held with panelists Shawn Tollerson, CEO of Namaste Laboratories (Creators of ORS Olive Oil); Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily; legendary fashion activist Bethann Hardison; Allison MCGevna of Hello Beautiful/Madame Noire and with moderator, lifestyle & media personality Harriette Cole. An engaging and empowering conversation was had on the representation of women of color in the beauty and fashion industry.

The day ended with a special live performance by Neo-soul husband and wife duo Kindred The Family Soul.
