Closet Profile: Persian Masquerade Gala

THE GREAT GATSBY

What I love about the roaring 20’s is that style, flare, and excitement eclipsed all forms of practicality. This Halloween, Zooom Box organizers (www.zooombox.com), Sepehr Askaryan, Farzad Biuok, and Nima Soofi brought back 20’s frivolity at their Persian Masquerade Gala.

My presence with guests was marred by my judging eyes for red carpet style, which I described in my fashion commentary before the event. My top three red carpet picks seemed to have taken my advice.

Red Carpet Report

I always like to see women in a bold color choice when dressing for an event. This masquerade guest wowed me with her choice of color, and flawless fit. Her muted gold bag was on-point for the season, and her black mask created an air of mystery. Good to know behind the mask was simply beautiful.

Look #2 (Snow White)

To step out in all white to an event is a risk on its own, but add Vancouver pouring rain–standing ovation. I liked this dress because of its gold-embroidered embellishment and asymmetrical hemlines. This masked guest blew onto the red carpet like wind through a meadow. I maybe obsessed with gold as an invest strategy, but she took me to a new bullion standard level.

Look #3 (Purple Princess)

With purple being one of the biggest color trends of the Fall 2012 season, I was excited to see my last red carpet pick give me style, grace, and elegance in the color purple. Her best accessory to coordinate her look, is a style mavens go-to accessory, her companion. He complimented her look with mirrored color points and chivalry.

A successful event always begins with an amazing backdrop, The Vancouver Art Gallery, non-the-less, a fabulous red carpet, free drinks, and food; this event did not disappoint. As the drinks flowed and music blared, guest received a burlesque themed showcase.

My time was spent exploring the exciting guests and taking in the fashion show; two Vancouver designers featured; Jacqueline Conoir and Elik+Asfi. Each mask held a story, but like Vegas, I don’t kiss and tell. However, I will share some of the fun looks that graced the party. Enjoy!!
