Alicia Machado and Daughter Metropolitan Fashion Week

Alicia Machado graces the red carpet with her beauty in a gold form-fitting gown at the Metropolitan Fashion Week at Warner Brother Studios Saturday evening. She brings a bright smile and personality to the event. She becomes the spotlight of the media and is surrounded.

She recently became the forefront of the presidential campaign. When Hillary Clinton’s campaign released the details of being Miss Universe 1996. She took a lot slack at that time from Donald Trump. The difficult days were not as easy as she faced much criticism. The woman she is today brought forward her strength as one who stands tall and one has learned a lot about the beautiful woman she is inside and out.

Alicia stands with great strength and courage as she addresses the press on the blue carpet. She takes a moment to thank all those who support her throughout this time. She said, “I love you all, I love you all and thank you very much for all the people who are supporting me right now.”

Alicia presents the award for Outstanding Ensemble for Makeup Artistry and hair styling. This was presented to The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’s make-up artist Eryn Krueger Mekash.

Alicia’s daughter, Dinorah Valentina Hernandez, walks the red carpet for designer Ricardo Soltero. This dress is a soft pink with gold trim on the bottom. Her styling is soft with pink roses adorning her head. She enjoyed her moment on the runway.

Her mother, Alicia, did not let the controversy stop her daughter from walking the runway for the day. She faces the controversy with firmness and a bright smile. The lesson for her daughter and many at the event is to keep moving one foot in front of the other. Demonstrating that life continues and we move forward.

The New York chapter is Everywhere at the End of Time. This chapter takes us to the current times in the world now and brings about empowerment. Empowering women and those being poorly treated. The entire show from the dancers, to the opening model, Nykhor Paul bring the story to life.

The runway included celebrities models: Kiera Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter), Frankie Grande, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin,  Dylan Grieco, Mason Grammer, and Janine Tugonon. Each is a part is the weaving of the story about acceptance and hope.

Los Angeles story chapter, the Seven Deadly Sins. This runway brings the story back to hope, light, and empowerment with the use of color. The Phoenix in the triplet chapter story.

The collections’ stories inspiration is the 1930s, the loss of hope and death. The stories draw from Charlie Chaplin‘s 1930 films including City Lights and Modern Times. The collections present the story with perfection in fabrics, treatments, performances, and colors.

The fabrics are Asian inspired. The fabrics are organzas, silk Charmeuse, and recycled piettes. The piettes created from recycled aluminum cans. Breton uses a company in Twain that cuts, colors, and treats the metal.

Breton says, “I do my best to protect the environment when creating my designs.” This metallic dress moments and texture are extraordinary. Breton states, “the dress movement comes from the way I weighted and draped the dress. I am so grateful it turned out so well.”

The color in this chapter is green (earth and rebirth), gold (prosperity and richness), and deep blue (continuous flow of life). The floral prints brings beauty and a new beginning to the final chapter of the story.

Breton’s chapters stay true to his aesthetics elegance. The men’s silhouettes are very on point. This collection Breton styled and designed himself. His stylist for several seasons, Montgomery Frazier The Image Guru, said, “we do not put anyone in anything that is ill-fitting. If it is ill-fitted they do not wear it. The textures and fabrics fit Breton’s catch line ‘wherever you go shine.’ The fabrics are rich, opulent, exquisite tailoring, and he is about fashion. Being here with Breton is so glamorous at Style Fashion Week with the beautiful outdoor setting and jazz music.”

Breton develops his menswear after his own experience. He states, “when I was a ballet dancer in London and on Broadway every time I lifted my arm up when wearing a suit I would lose part of my sleeve. I knew I had to figure out how to cut a suit so I do not lose part of my sleeve. I trained at Turnbull And Asser, the suit makers for the Prince of Wales. He says, “I incorporate the English traditions in my designs. I learned there with my development for the men’s suits.”

The fashion show stayed true to the designers’ aesthetic while completing the story started in New York. The beauty, tailoring, and signature detailing tell the story of hope, equality, and empowerment. Concluding with the image of renewing and shining wherever you are.

Commatteo ~ New Lines

Antonella A Commatteo, the designer of Commatteo, takes the runway wearing an asymmetrical top with a peek-a-boo short underneath. The attention to her personal style concludes the runway with a strong influence line created in the collection. Lines bring this collection a perspective that creates a personal fashion statement.

The line creation for some dresses uses a slit to create a movement that is unique to the dress. The ability to vent the dress around provides a revealing sexy appeal in the movement. Taking the dart off the gown brings a free flow movement to the gown.

The empire waistline silhouette fits the bodice, but here is designed without the normally gathered skirt. The long loose flow provides more volume to the gown and places emphasizes on the bust line. The use of lines in different directions and angles provides a visual dimension and depth to the collection.

The front of Ava Capra’s, model, dress as well as the gown was worn by Sibley Scoles, E! News Correspondent, creates a line with the placement of the geometric shapes. The back of Capra’s dress is sheer black. Continuing with the revelation of sensuality. The pleat lines below the waist provide a voluminous flow.

The dress worn by Capra the collar gives the illusion that it continues down the back. When the model turns around you see that the collar is round. Scoles’ dress uses a combination of traditional collars and necklines to create the height and depth. The various necklines in the collection combine traditional collars and neckline to create new shapes, dimensions, and illusions.

“The runway makeup styling is natural especially the brow. We are going to see more natural brows this spring.” (Alejandra Barraza, TNT Agency) “The hair is soft waves with a little curl. This summer season does not forget the sunscreen for your hair.” (Maily O’Neil, Mai Salon El Paseo). The styling was slightly individualized with each look.

Commatteo states, “My inspiration for all my collections has always stemmed from my life’s journey. This part of my life was reaching the professional, ageless female, who loves fashion, constantly on the run, needing a mix and match pieces to change from day to  evening.” The collection brings the ability for self-expression with the ability to combine pieces and use the lines for accentuating. The fall-winter 2017 collection brings self-expression to the forefront with elegance and beauty.  See the full collection here.
