Elsa Hosk Wearing Fantasy Bra

Elsa Hosk is a 29 year old Swedish model. She did spend time playing basketball in Sweden. Her  modeling career includes Dior, H&M, and Guess to name a few. Hosk began modeling at the age of 14 in Sweden. She moved to New York and signed with IMG Models. Her modeling with VS began in 2011. Hosk officially announced as an angel in 2015.

She is honored to wear this fantasy bra because of the glitz, shimmer, and shine. Her makeup will compliment the glamorous bra.

Creating the Fantasy Bra

This year’s fantasy bra is by Atelier Swarovski. It has 2,100 Swarovski Diamonds and topaz that is responsibly sourced. It is a sterling silver cage. The body chain is comprised of Topaz with the center stone being a pear shaped 2.03 carat Atelier Swarovski Created Diamond. This bra took 930 hours to create the hand set bra. It has over 71 carats. 

This is tied with Claudia Schiffer’s fantasy bra in 1996 (the first year for the runway) for 1 million dollars. The most expensive fantasy bra is Gisele Bündchen 2000, Red Hot Fantasy Bra at $15 million.

This year, for the first time, a similar fantasy bra will be open for purchase on Nov. 29, 2018. It will have Swarovski crystals for $250 at select Victoria’s Secret locations.

Stephanie Nauli ~ Look in The Mirror

Stephanie Nauli ~ Look in The Mirror

Stephanie Nauli, philanthropist, musician, and model, will be attending E-Feminista Freedom Tour by Crowned for Success in New York city. She brings with her talents, service, and inspiration to this event. Nauli motto is, “look in the mirror and know you can be anything.” Get a little insight to this amazing woman.

What is the one thing you do to start each day to be successful?

I thank God for all the opportunities at hand and read my Holy Bible devotionals to get my mind and heart right for the course of the day.

As a young child what was the one thing you wanted to be as an adult?

A star.

Being a single mother what is the one tip to scheduling and management of a busy life you use? 


Grant Cardone’s 10X Success Planner.

Thank you for your service in the military. How has being a member of the military benefited your current career in entertainment?

Being that I was the 1st Armored Division’s National Anthem Singer at Fort Bliss, Texas, with my face on a training site banner, I would say it was an honorable experience that better prepared me for the future.

Stephaie Nauli E-Feminista 4Chion Lifestyle
Key to your life is philanthropy what is the one area that you see we can get motivated to participate?

We can’t put full responsibility on the White House. They are doing their part as our nation’s leaders. But the people are the hands and feet of the changes we wish to see.

Health is wealth and doing everything we can to sustain and improve the health of our environment ensures that we ourselves can live healthier and more profitable lives, by saving money on medical bills and capitalizing on athletic endeavors, to name a few. Money does not flow without us and does not flow as productively if we are not at our optimal state of health. Our well-being is reflected by what we consume, and this includes the kind of air we breathe.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation has made such a lasting impact in my native country, Indonesia, who now have been all about going green, improving the overall health of their economy, and many others, to include the U.S. Definitely, support their work and progress.

You focus on empowering people to be the best most positive life. How did you gain 1 insight or tool for your book?

If you can dream it, you can achieve it. If you can see it, you can believe it. Before anything manifests into something, it begins with an idea. That idea requires a plan of action if you want to make it happen. That is why I included a visual planning exercise in the Master Life Assessment Tool in the back of my Amazon bestseller “Master Life: 7 Powers to Living At Your Highest Potential.

This way your dream goes from concept to reachable opportunity.

Stephaie Nauli E-Feminista 4Chion Lifestyle
Stephanie Nauli
E-Feminista is about creating a “laptop lifestyle” for women. How do you interpret that in your daily living? 

I am a Regional Vice President of Crowned for Success, LLC, a sisterhood of entrepreneurial women and online business owners who contribute a portion of our proceeds against domestic violence and children’s education. We are all about the remote living lifestyle because we as women of ambition, have lots we are passionate about doing that can’t all be done in a cubicle. As an influencer and marketer, my work is done 80% on my phone, 10% on a laptop or computer, and 10% in a recording studio or film set. This allows me to travel where I want, when I want, and with who, doing what I love.

What is the one moment in your life that you felt that you had made around the corner?

When I started my own production and marketing company, Millennial Entertainment, LLC, that was the decision to create my own opportunities instead of waiting in line.

Your Motto is “Look in the mirror and know you can be anything…” Do you feel you have achieved that to this time in life?

Absolutely, I always will be, because I believe in having a growth-mindset and continually learning things that better myself, my life, my performance, and my business. Every time I reach a goal, I will always want to take it to the next level. That’s just me. Complacency is a dangerous place to be.

One beauty tip you use to be the best you possible.

Staying hydrated prevents wrinkles and keeps the skin supple, and lips plush, with the help of a natural color lip enhancer by IT Cosmetics, Je Ne Sais Quoi nourishing lipstick. It’s my everyday lip magic.


What are your current and upcoming projects for film, modeling, or entertainment?

I have an action/drama screenplay in development, it’s almost like Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets the Goodfellas, and there are several distribution opportunities for that as well as for brands and investors. I’ve been blessed to receive brand ambassador opportunities that I’m considering, in athletic gear and makeup. I also landed a supporting role in a military drama feature film, Charlie Med, in pre-production, and I’m releasing my first EP on my 27th birthday, September 9th, that includes the cinematic pop-orchestra song, “You Can Be”, on all radio streams.

The Walking Man ~ D’ Jesus Trujillo

Eva Capra D' Jesus Trujillo 4Chion Lifestyle

D’ Jesus Trujillo graces the world with his own personal style on the red carpet and catwalk. He states, “It is all in the confidence.” Trujillo brings his Latin flair, confidence, and style to his walk anywhere.

  • “How did life’s journey bring you to television, runway training, and production?”
    • “I have always had a fascination with Style and Fashion. When I was in my teens, I moved to Mexico City to become an actor. My dream was to move to the United States and break into Hollywood. While studying at the Andreas Soler Academy I taught modeling and choreography to support my education. I realized that I had a passion for the industry and my desire to pursue this path as a career developed.”
    • “After moving to California, I found it was a struggle just to survive. My resolve to succeed intensified not just for me, but to help others like me who have a passion for design, modeling and style. I wanted to prove to myself and show others that success can be achieved with focus, determination, and patience. One night while watching Univision, I saw a feature on a Latina designer who made it big in the U.S. Her story inspired me to reach for the impossible and to never be ashamed of who I am or where I came from.”
  • “As a business owner in the fashion and entertainment arena what one piece of insight would you share?”
    • “Never give up your dreams and never compromise who you are. Your uniqueness is one of your biggest assets.”

D' Jesus Trujillo Runway 4Chion Lifestyle

  • “What are the changes to fashion shows and runways you have seen in the last few years?”
    • “Acceptance of and a trend toward more ‘real’ models. I am seeing more models who don’t fit the traditional ideals. Models who are shorter, plus sized, older and those who push traditional gender boundaries are becoming more common. I believe this is a healthy trend for the Industry and for the public.”
  • “When looking for talent what are the top three items do you look for?”
    • “Personality. Charisma and personality is key to being able to sell a garment.”
    • “Looks. Uniqueness or the ‘X-Factor‘ needs to match the image of the designer and the garments that will be on the runway.”
    • Confident. All-inclusive walk and presence that will transform each garment into “fashion”
  • “How does social media play in your business and training?”
    • “Social Media is essentially primary to getting my image and my message out. It is invaluable for networking and for keeping up with fashion trends both in style and design. You cannot be successful today without a strong social media presence.”

D' Jesus Trujillo Strut The Walking Man Art Hearts Fashion 4Chion Lifestyle

  • “Recently you had some cameos on Strut,  produced by Whoopi Goldberg, what does this show bring to the transgender community and the fashion industry?”
    • “Strut is groundbreaking in showing that the Transgendered Community consists of people with normal lives who have the courage to be who they are. It provides courage and inspiration to an unimaginably huge population of people who struggle to find themselves and fully develop to their full potential regardless of the challenges they face in our culture. It also shows the status quo in the industry that it’s who you are, not what you are supposed to be that holds star potential.”
  • “What is the one thing you do each morning to start off your day?”
    • “Each day I wake up, put my feet on the floor and thank God for the gift of another day in this life. Then I go to social media to review what’s come in overnight and to communicate with those who reach out to me. I review the latest fashion news about my friends and colleagues and begin to formulate a motivational message that I can send out to those who follow me.”
  • “When was a time when an event went from stress to best?”
    • Every event presents different challenges, from models who do not show up to missing accessories or shoes. No show ever goes off without unexpected events that must be dealt with. The key is to expect the unexpected and to improvise. The public doesn’t know the planned script so the final product is what’s important.
  • “Working fashion shows what is a typical day start to finish?”
    • “The day cannot start without my coffee! LOL Typically I begin by reviewing the lineup for the show, from garments to accessories to make sure everything is correct according to the models who are going to wear them.”
    • “Next I have a meeting with the Team (keeping in mind that the show is based on teamwork). Review any last minute changes. Communication is important.”
    • Check on hair and makeup to ensure everyone knows their assignment and they have what they need to do their work.”
    • “Assign an assistant for each model.”
    • “Rehearse each model so they know their timing and choreography on the runway.”
    • “Coach individual models as needed”
    • “Review final preparations and make sure the team is ready for the show.”
    • “Lights, Cameras, action.”
  • “Working with some of the top fashion magazines, fashion weeks, and photographers what does working behind scenes bring to the final production?”
    • “As with any production, what you see on stage is only the tip of the iceberg. There is so much talent, creativity, and intensity that takes place behind the scenes it’s really unbelievable. Working in a creative and cutting-edge industry such as fashion requires quick and innovative thinking, coordination between designers, models, producers, hair and makeup artists, right down to those who take care of the coffee. Every person, no matter how seemingly insignificant to the final product, is essential to the success of that production. I am always amazed at the dedication of everyone involved and how it brings the final show together as a success”

d-jesus-shoes-4chion-lifestyle-a
D’ Jesus Trujillo The Walking Man

  • “Image is an important addition with the rise in selfies what is one focus you think could improve a person’s image?”
    • “Confidence! Confidence with a bit of sassiness really provides the charisma that attracts others. Wear it, Own it, Sell it!”
  • “You present a great cohesive style. How did you discover your personal style?”
    • “My style comes from a desire to be sexy, sassy, and fun to work with. My inspiration comes from my native culture in Mexico. I seek ways to use and promote indigenous fashion in the mainstream. Being bold, confident and sometimes outrageous is what inspires me to create and to be who I am.”

Trujillo works this at each event, project, and runway he attends. We always look to see the shoes that tie his personality, style, and confidence together. Many days on Facebook you will find words of wisdom with a picture of one sexy shoe. He practices what he teaches each day.

Trujillo states, “I always encourage everyone to practice, practice, practice and to be comfortable with who you are. Have patience and remember, it’s not enough to dream. You have to take action for those dreams to become reality.” He draws his influence from Coco Chanel.

Chanel demonstrates Trujillo’s statement about never giving up. Chanel’s life story is her determination, energy, and ambition coming from nothing to big global success! His favorite quote from Chanel is, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, in our ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Trujillo lives this each day.

He provides a vision to his life with his personal style, work ethic, and dedication. Keep an eye this year on social media to see the shoes that tie Trujillo’s style, mission, and uniqueness to his inspiration.

Ava Capra joins us on the red carpet at Metropolitan Fashion Week Closing Gala & Awards Show.  She graces the red carpet in a gorgeous lace top double slit gown with her best friend Brandon Cole Bailey.

One year ago she was working the challenges on America’s Next Top Models (ANTM). She’s dream was to appear on ANTM and work the runway. There was a height requirement in seasons past. She was just a little shy of the need for the last season. Tyra Banks saw something in the 5’5″ model.

Capra works hard and focuses on the challenges on ANTM. She has a major look change and takes it in stride because this is her dream. She gains a following that loves seeing this young model make her dream come true. This experience is a fabulous opportunity for her.  It is heartbreaking for viewers when her time ended too soon on ANTM.

She continues to focus on her goal of modeling and makes it very successful. She says, “I turned to my faith, family, and good friends to pick myself up. I learned a lot about myself and modeling. I knew this was my dream and I love the work.”

Capra has done just that. She graces the runways, the cover of magazines, red carpets and more. She commands the runway as if she is taller than life. Her runway shows have included Art Hearts Fashion Week, Metropolitan Fashion Week, LA Swim Week, and more. She is often called the flower Child Virgin and her flower brand, “Bloom by Ava.”

Her mother, Ann Marie, states, “Ava has worked hard to stay focused, true to herself, and is making her dream come true.” Her mother states it best. Capra during the last year after leaving ANTM accomplishes a lot. Tyra Banks saw something in Capra, but she continues to shows that something special. She brings a strong determination to fashion, runway, commercial, and beauty making her dreams come true.

The designs are strong Victorian with a hint of the 1980s. The earth tones draw in the southwestern US and soft colors bring a romance to the fashion. This collection brings a strong modern edge to the old. Nicky Zimmermann takes a little step from her traditional bohemian fashion, but there are hints if you look real close to some of the pieces you will see the ruffles and crocheting. Simple and pure really add to the earthy look.

This collection will bring ready-to-wear and simplicity to your fall-winter fashion.

Rising Above ~ Dustin Quick

Rising Above ~ Dustin Quick

Meeting Dustin Quick at LA Swim Week 2015 was a fabulous evening. Quick with her husband Medi eM performed the opening act. Quick continued the evening with a great runway showing.

Quick brings solid talent and exceptional beauty to her modeling, acting, and performing. She is always rising above to bring great entertainment to her audiences.

Dustin Quick Art Hearts Fashion Week 4Chion Lifestyle b
Dustin Quick with her Husband Photographer Raymond L Forchion Jr.

How did your life’s journey bring you to modeling, singing, acting, and performing? 

“When I was five, my mother took me to see The King and I at the Omaha Community Playhouse, created by Marlon Brando‘s mother and the Fonda’s.  Between the vivid, silk costumes and exotic makeup, my senses were piqued, so once I saw two children actors on stage, I quickly nudged my mom and whispered, ‘How did those kids get up there?’  She replied, ‘I think they had to audition’, so I asked her to take me to the next one which was for, ‘A Christmas Carol’.   We showed up to a big room filled with pro-kids and stage moms who had recorded accompaniment or sheet music, we didn’t know to bring anything, so when it was my turn, I sang, ‘Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah’ a cappella with some moves on the fly, and they cast me as the new angel.”

As an entertainer and fashion model, what is one piece of insight would you share?

“Stay in school, #Instafame is fleeting, an education is an asset that you can trust in for life.”

You released a new music video. What can we expect with this song and video?

“Medi eM is a guitarist/composer, I write and sing the lyrics, and on this song, ‘Heartbeat‘ we both sing about what happened when we found each other.  When two heart cells are near each other, they start synchronizing their beat, so Medi fused his flamenco and house music backgrounds to create a tribal rhythm that gets hips shaking, together.  The video is a symbolic story of us, our love freed each other, and set our hearts on fire.”

Dustin Quick LA Swim Week 4Chion Lifestyle k
Dustin Quick wearing Grace Moon

What is the one thing you do each morning to start off your day?  

“I open the curtains in front of our bed which looks out to our fruit trees, I’ve seen a mockingbird feed her babies (I call her Mama Rockingbird), put the tea on, and then curl up with Medi in bed, and we watch the political satire that aired the night before together. “

When was there a time when an event went from stress to best? 

“Yes!  I was asked to model the finale look for these gorgeous couture hats.  The incredibly talented millinery (hat designer), Annette Higgins picked the perfect dresses to compliment her creations, and my gown was a gorgeous full, floor-length satin strapless number to match her biggest hat ever, in a luscious shape and classic red.  The only problem is that my torso is just naturally built more narrow than most (designer Sue Wong affectionately says that I’m size, ‘sub-zero’), and as a result, strapless dresses end up becoming belts on me.  Now, this show had grand steps coming down to the runway, so I’m backstage quietly trying to figure how I wasn’t going to face-plant for the grand finale.  I tried puffing out my chest and then wrapped a padded bra around underneath to keep the dress up, and clinching the strap built inside the dress for support, all to no avail.  This is when I start lamenting myself for not bringing my taller heels.  I was freaking out internally because I didn’t know how I was going to be able to walk in the show without becoming a YouTube fail.  So I prayed, and the inspiration came to me to draw from flamenco dancing and hold the dress up like a bullfighting femme fatal enticing her mark to tango with her.  The crowd applauded, the designer loved it, and I got to feel like I was in a Fellini film.”
 Working fashion shows what is a typical day start to finish?
“My call time is usually 4 hours before showtime, so that morning I eat, shower, pack my bag, do my nails, rush out the door and race to the runway  Once hair and makeup is done, I get dressed carefully, line-up, wait (this industry is the genesis of the phrase, ‘fashionably late’), strut like I mean it, red carpet photos with the designer, and then find Medi!”

An image is an important addition to the rise in selfies what is one focus you think could improve a person’s image?

“I actually don’t care for basic solo selfies, but I know people take them sitting in their car because it’s good angle and lighting.  However, unless it’s a dope car, or you just passed your driver’s license, it’s too common, so I would focus on replicating that angle and lighting that reveals more of the person’s imagination.”

You present a great cohesive style. How did you discover your personal style?

“Awe thank you, well I’ve been passionate about fashion since I was pre-school I only wanted to wear silk, satin nothing too cutesy like big buttons, denim or dresses without waistlines.  Although I was otherwise a really good kid, honestly the only time I ever got upset was when my mother or sister had me wear something I didn’t like.  One winter my mother had understandably forced jeans on me, I took them off in the car on the way to the sitter’s house, and ran out in the snow pant-less because I didn’t want to wear ‘boy clothes’.  My mother is a traveler, so she took me with her to Spain when I was 6 and fell in love with a long Flamenco dress, I kindly pleaded for her to buy it, I wore that gown from when it was too long on me too when it became skirt length.  Throughout school I was known for wearing unique outfits, from hats every day for a year (including a raspberry beret), lime green patent leather heels, to a long body-con velveteen leopard print Betsy Johnson dress (and years later I met her backstage right before I was going on the runway what a vibrant fabulous force she is!)  I have since learned to appreciate denim, and have traded in the outrageous for more body-con and couture, but the passion is still there.”

What is one winter fashion/beauty tips you use?

“For winter fashion, accessories keep functional layers exciting, so Obelo Jewelry, Ronaldo Designer Jewelry, and Artizan by Robin Barre are my goto’s for interesting statement pieces.  As for beauty, although I use Sunless Beauty Organic Spray Tanning and self-tanner throughout the year, in winter it’s obviously more essential I love that it’s organic and it smells like dessert. I’ve also fallen in love with TNT Agency for make-up, and I will be wearing all of them to award season and on New York Fashion Week runways in the new year.”
Quick will continue rising with appearances on red carpets, runways, and more during the upcoming year.
