Always one of the highlights of the Miami social season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts’ annual gala is almost here, and this time it’s in celebration of the Arsht Center’s 12th anniversary. A black-tie affair, gala proceeds will support the Arsht Center’s mission-driven arts education and community engagement programs. Aptly named “A Celebration of Leadership”, the full gala experience includes a cocktail reception, dinner, concert, dancing and dessert.
Every year at the Arsht Center’s Gala VIPs walk the red carpet, making sure to dress to impress. Read on for some gown suggestions that’ll be sure to make you part of the fashion elite on this very special evening.
Social Styles: Standouts with Stylist Elysze Held (3/13/2018)
In honor of “International Women’s Day, I thought I would feature just a few fabulous women (and an honorary male!) whom I had spotted rocking great looks this past month alone…at FEMALE CENTRIC Soirées: A cocktail reception at Riveria Country Club in honor of Judge Bronwyn Miller; Wine, Women and Shoes for the MCHF; BBBS Gala Honoring Edie Laquer; Iran Issa Khan’s Birthday Month Celebration; the Miami Symphony Orchestra’s salute to Zaha Hadid at The Moore Building.
What to Wear Where to the Diamond Anniversary Gala
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami is celebrating a milestone 60th anniversary, and they plan to do it in style. Aptly titled Little Gems, Big Glow, this black-tie gala will take place on March 3rd at the JW Marriott Marquis in Downtown Miami, and promises to be the organization's most spectacular fundraising event of the year.
With a name like the Little Gems, Big Glow, this is the perfect opportunity to embrace your love of sparkle. This Jenny Packham floor-length gown has a swoon-worthy and elegant cut in the front, and an all-eyes-on-you open back. With all-over sequin embellishment, this number will have you shining bright like a diamond all night long.
Social Styles: Standouts with Stylist Elysze Held
I decided for this end of the year feature to focus on a few great looks...to share the photos of a few of my favorite looks. True style can be imitated of course, but never really copied. What is STYLE? The word itself is often overused but it"s still the only one that fits in this case-it is something more captivating than "BEST DRESSED" and something more enigmatic than the similarly global term "SO CHIC".
Social Styles: The Season Heats Up!
There is an eclectic fusion of style happening now in Miami - as evidenced by the stylish sightings by Elysze Held at October charity events. In kicking off the Miami Social Season, the local style set certainly hits the high notes when it comes to fashion!
