The functional and fashionable award goes to the talented designer, Maria Cornejo! Her dresses are not something you would gravitate to by seeing them on a hanger at first. However, once you try on one of her masterpieces - you will quickly understand the buzz. I certainly did.
Its newest effort is Nike 1 Reimagined, a collection of 10 new takes on the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 designed by a team of 14 female Nike employees — including colorists, materials specialists and mainline footwear designers — handpicked by Footwear Director Andy Caine. "The genesis of creativity is diversity," says Caine in an official statement. "From a design point of view, each of the designers has a very unique background and personality. Our theory is that when you mix diverse creative talents you realize some magic."
With a simple brief by Caine ("Make some cool shit."), the select designers had complete creative power to produce their own interpretations of two classic Nike sneakers. Georgina James, Design Director for NSW Women's footwear and notable designer behind Nike's Studio Wrap, was assigned to lead the group, spearheading brainstorm meetings for a week at the brand's headquarters in Portland, and four days in London to actually execute the 10 sneakers.
My eyes light up whenever I see that distinctive blue - Tiffany & Co. box! I am also a big fan of their newest Chief Artistic Officer, Reed Krakoff who took the creative position earlier this year.

Heidi Klum is a woman that I admire. She is the queen of multi-tasking and just so happens to be one of the world's most hottest supermodels. In addition, she is a TV host, businesswoman, designer, and mom! Can you imagine what her calendar looks like?
Klum is used to wearing many hats and she cultivates a style as versatile as she is. Her personal wardrobe is sexy and always on trend. Recently, she launched a clothing collaboration - Esmara with German retailer Lidl Klum brings her perspective to the masses with a line of affordably priced statement pieces that dare wearers to try something new. For example, mixing basics like tailored blazers, little black dresses, and white sneakers with flashier pieces like billowing caftans, and animal print covered blouses.
When Maria Grazia Chiuri debuted her first collection as artistic director of Christian Dior back in September 2016, models wore t-shirts emblazoned with the statement “We should all be feminists.” And, indeed, since the appointment of its first female artistic director that same year, Christian Dior has become a vocal supporter of gender equality and female empowerment both on and off the runway.
I am a girl that loves lipstick and the ease of being able to put some on and run out the door! When in a rush or a quick morning jam - lipstick is always my answer when trying to pull a last minute look together. However, If you were to peak into my bathroom cabinets you would basically find a mini Sephora. Yes, I love products. Obsessed. But, I have learned to only stick with the basic essentials.
