YYZ Living Magazine Summer Issue Launch Party!

28 Jun

On June 16th I had THE most amazing time at the YYZ Living Magazine Summer Issue Launch Party at Ultra Nightclub. We arrived for the 8pm media reception and mingled with some of the most fun in the industry as we sipped on Moet Champagne and enjoyed some delicious oh d’oeuvres. It was hardly passed 8pm and the event was on full swing with everyone catching up in their best spring/summer outfits on the roof top patio at Ultra. Here are some photos taken by Owen McLeod for YYZ Living (you can find the rest on their FB page):

At the launch party there were bloggers, investors, designers, entertainers; the list really went on and on. YYZ Living Magazine brought out the top within Toronto’s industries together, which is truly a reflection of what the magazine is really about; joining the chic and luxurious of the city under one cover, and in the case of this event under one roof.

From the images above, it is evident that there were a lot of  familiar faces in attendance and the event was a true success! The 10pm reception, which allowed for the general public to attend and celebrate the launch of the new summer issue with the YYZ Group by RSVP-ing prior to the event date, caused the Ultra patio to reach capacity shortly after the 10pm start time. It was brilliant to have the magazine give the public an opportunity to take part in such a huge and successful event, it really displayed the way that the magazine really wants to bring Toronto together through its publication.
If you attended the launch, I hope you had a brilliant time!

MTV Europe Music Awards – Best & Worst Dressed

8 Nov

The MTV Europe Music Awards were held this past weekend in Madrid, Spain and here are my picks for the best and worst dressed females of the show.

Best Dressed:

Eva Longoria-Parker

Rihanna

Shakira

Worst Dressed:

Taylor Momsen

Kesha

Natasha Gilbert

My Thoughts:

The best dressed ladies were definitely a hit without a single doubt for the event. Shakira is usually a hit or miss when she attends events with her wardrobe, but this time she happens to have picked the right stylist! The dress she wore hugged her curves in all the right places and really emphasized the curves on her small frame. Eva Longoria I find has recently picked up a “Victoria Beckham” style, particularly when it comes to the makeup for this event; but it is evident there is nothing wrong to say about her dress which is gorgeous! Rihanna looked fabulous in the very feminine piece that she wore which had a sense of serenity written all over it, yet her hair brought out a certain edge to the outfit as a whole.

The worst dressed ladies are fairly predictable when it comes to the “not so fabulous” of the wardrobes. Kesha and Taylor Momsen never ever disappoint when it comes to looking like white trash. They still haven’t quite gotten the concept that being in the spotlight does not allow you to play dress up out of a kindergarten classroom costume chest. Natasha Gilbert is not necessarily an A Lister, and this outfit is definitely not going to help her get there!

Just for Fun:

Below is a picture of Katy Perry’s outfit, which I don’t think is a best dressed, but it’s not a worst dressed either. It’s a very unique and creative piece and I do give her all the credit in the world for pulling it off and working it!

Those are my thoughts on the best and worst dressed ladies of the show. What are your thoughts??
