As Fashion Publicist for the leading online luxury jewelry retailer, you are correct in assuming that a portion of my job is to befriend stylists and dress their clients. Game 1 of the "World Series of dressing the Stars" began this past weekend at the Golden Globes. Game 7 of the series is of course, The Academy Awards.
Introducing Hollywood-based stylists and their assistants to Blue Nile's Red Carpet collection was a gigantic step for our company.
In the past six weeks, we've dressed stars like Helen Mirren, Maria Menounos, Penelope Ann Miller and Giuliana Rancic. Having a first-hand look into what goes into dressing someone for an award show, starting with the gown and ending with a handbag and jewelry, was incredibly helpful.
So much credit goes to the stylists and publicists who are constantly bombarded with showrooms, meetings and fittings the week before the big show. From Brad Goreski's assistant Thomas to Miss Golden Globes 2012 herself, Rainey Qualley, all made time for Blue Nile and for that I'm so thankful.
It's an incredibly rewarding, but demanding job that consists of extreme multi-tasking, product intuitivness, and the realization that there is no guarantee. Spending countless hours to perfect our jump into celebrity-ladden Los Angeles has already paid off and I couldn't be more proud of our team.
A special shoutout to my security guards & LAPD's best, John & Jesse, who always ensured I was in good hands.
And of course, any type of success wouldn't be possible without the support of my colleagues and my mentor, Aimee. My dear friend Aimee has provided invaluable feedback, is always lending an ear and has never stopped believeing in me. I am so blessed to have her.
Now, the show must go on. 10 Days Until the SAG Awards.
