Nancy O'Dell in Custom Nick Verreos/Nikolaki

9
Miss Universe Telecast, Sunday July 23: As I was sitting in the audience last night, front row, next to the beautiful Brook Lee, Miss Universe 1997, wearig a gown I created for her, I was nervous as heck, waiting to see if hostess Nancy O'Dell was going to open the show with my gown. As she was announced , my heart pounded faster, she began walking out, and there she was wearing the design David and I created for her: a black lace with hand-applied paillettes Mermaid gown with ice blue silk charmeuse backing. She looked glorious to say the least. David was many seats away from me so I could not enjoy the moment immediately with him, but you can guess that Brook and I were grasping our hands like CRAZY!! I will post more photos soon, but I wanted to show a photo of the gown since many of you might not have realized which one was mine. And by the way: it is NOT a fishtail!! This is just considered a "Chapel Length sweeping Train".

LOVED this dress!! It was stunning and I immediately knew it had to be a Nikolaki...it looked like your style and it was just gorgeous. Thanks for explaining more about the construction and fabric. Sounds like that would have taken forever to make but the effort certainly paid off and produced a show-stopper dress. Congrats!

Nick, the dress was stunning. I knew that it was yours right away, and you and David did a beautiful job on it :) Can't wait to see more photos!

Wow! Great job on her dress! What did you think about the top 5 finalists evening gown dresses?? I think Kayne did a fantastic job on Miss USA's.

Hi Nick:

The minute Nancy walked out, I knew you designed that little number. It had the "Nick look" all over it.

I had to rewind my DVR to catch you sitting next to Miss 1997. You looked so happy and like you were trying to look at the camera without being too conspicuous!

You are adorable. Wish David could have been closer to share your moment.

XO

Beautiful, Nick.... LOVE IT!!!!!
Must have been surreal seeing her up there in your gown... although I imagine now these lovely moments will be happening a lot more often!
By the way...
LOVED LOVED LOVED you on PR! I was so sad you did not make top 3. The editing seemed to show that you were really busy helping Kara, almost to your own detriment. Could you comment on this?
