The last time I was in Miami, I had the pleasure to get my nails done by Norma Gazonni at the downtown Studio-D. She's a lovely lady who I previously met in New York during Fashion Week.
I'm extremely happy to find that Norma has now moved to Miami, and is now rocking celebrity cuticles in the Magic City and Gotham.
Norma is very professional, caring, and has and radiates a positive energy around her.
In New York, Norma has done nails of the likes of Daphne Guinness, Claudine D’Niro, Channel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Cassia Lara, Ana Beatriz Barros, Izabel Goulart, Adriana Lima, Beta Minard, Ayda Tuturo and Luciana Gimenez.
Of course I had to ask her what it was like doing the nails of a fashion icon like Daphne Guinness. Norma tells me she is absolutely chic and elegant – and very sweet too. I knew it.
I adore having Norma work on my nails, and I'm definitely not alone. On my visit, she even had one of the Victoria's Secret models asking for an appointment.
Nails are important, girls (and boys)! And there's nothing like doing it right with the right person.
You'll find Norma at Studio-D at 117 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132. Telephone is 305.375.1149 or 718.685.8831.

As expected, Mara Hoffman's runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim was a big success.
The prints were phenomenal, colorful, and extremely sophisticated. The way Mara Hoffman mixed the fabrics with images of animals was unique and absolutely wearable.
The Mara Hoffman girl for its 2015 Summer Collection is confident and stylish. They were great pieces for fierce women.

While getting ready for a hot, hot weekend at SoBe for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from Guess inviting me to a rooftop pool party at the glamorous Soho Beach House.
You see, when I was assigned to attend Fashion Week Swim, I promised myself I would save one day for fun no matter what. It was the perfect excuse. A highlight of the trip. My cherry on top.
The Guess team did a fabulous job with everything. My friends and I felt like it was an exclusive party just for us while lounging in our little cabanas by the pool. The amazing DJ Caroline Damore, rocked the rooftop and got us dancing. She even took my request. I asked for Madonna's Celebration, of course.
It was a party full of beautiful and cool people. Everyone was happy and satisfied with the awesome treatment that Guess provided.
So here's a little secret: besides making fabulous fashion, Guess really knows how to throw a party.
Their Summer Collection never looked so hot, happy, and full of prints. It was absolutely sophisticated and chic. Perfect for a pool party, yet glamorous enough for a cruise on a yacht.
We Are Handsome is the perfect match for confident women who know where they want to be - and exactly what they'll be wearing at the perfect time.

I had a princess moment last Friday at the Studio-D in downtown Miami.
Dinho Payan is one of the owners, and his simply amazing team took very good care of my hair and nails for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.
Studio-D is a fantastic salon. The energy is contagious. The people there are not only professional, but really great people. I was amazed how confident Dinho was with my hair. The salon was full of beautiful people – and busy! But everyone was very calm and joyful.
Ten years a blonde, and I've never loved my hair so much as I do now. The highlights that Dinho applied make it shine more than ever. So don't be surprised if you see me driving back down to Miami again for a touch-up!
You will find these angels of beauty at 117 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132. Telephone 305.375.1149. Tell them I said hello.

Poko Pano rocked the pool side of The Raleigh hotel in South Beach Miami.
The Brazilian brand kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim as the first show last Friday.
True to their origin, Poko Pano's bikinis are a reflection of Brazil – happy, colorful, and full of life.
The music was also amazing. I couldn't help but sing (quietly) along. I almost cried thinking of my summers in Brazil in the 90s.
The Poko Pano show was unforgettable with high energy. It was BRAZIL!

Wildfox is one of those brands that's hard to forget. The girly prints and forms always leave an impression.
I absolutely adore Wildfox. They have this silly, fun, and – yes – wild way that makes a girl like me go crazy.
At their runway show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, I found their 2015 Summer Collection very hippie-chic and (ahhhhh) romantic! Wildfox is surely a brand that has come to brighten our lives.
