Shopping and Pool Time, with Nick:Prom Photo by the Pool: Nick Verreos and Marisa Miller, W Hotel Los Angeles (Westwood) cabana When I got the call to do a shopping segment at Intermix on Robertson Blvd. AND interview Marisa Miller and have an exclusive peak at the newest Victoria's Secret Swimsuit Collection--all for MSN Style Studio, my response was "YES and YESSSS!!!!!!"

Intermix First stop: One of my favorite stores in Los Angeles, Intermix on Roberston Blvd. It carries EVERYTHING a hip, young Hollywood girl wants and needs to have in her walk-in closet! With the help of two lovely models, we shot a segment highlighting the NEON trend for this Spring/Summer '09 season and how you ladies can wear this hot look; whether it is on the weekend, at the office or a night on the town. Bubble Gum Barbie: Heidi Klum in the fabulous Matthew Williamson jacket and slim trousers For the weekend look, we put together an "LA Casual" yet "Hampton's Chic" look which I LOVED: The exaggerated-shoulder white jacket, the bright royal blue top, the acid washed "holey" 80s style jeans, and the studded sandals. So cute! For business--I found the SAME bubblegum pink silk-cotton Matthew Williamson jacket that Heidi Klum wore to the Project Runway Season 6 Finale and paired it with some pleated and tapered black pants, some black heels and a hefty metallic bag, roomy enough to put all your papers in but stylish enough to be worn after work. Who says you can't wear Neon to work-- only if it's done as we show you!Nick and Christian Siriano's...Dress: Nick Verreos with model (in Christian Siriano), Intermix on Robertson Blvd. Finally, for evening, we found this hot chartreuse colored silk chiffon and organza muti-layered dress at Intermix which just screamed "Take me Nick!". Wouldn't you just know it: It was designed by none other than Project Runway Season 5 Winner, Christian Siriano. I loved the way it moved so effortlessly and floated beautifully away from the wearer's body. You can eat a big ol' Filet Mignon and still go dance it off afterwards! W Hotel Los Angeles: Victoria's Secret Swimsuits!Can we Reserve a Cabana: Nick Verreos poses with Victoria's Secret Swimsuit-clad models After my jaunt at Intermix--and after a quick outfit change--I headed over to the sunny W Hotel in Westwood to say "What's Up??" to the sexy and gorgeous Marisa Miller who was debuting the Summer '09 Victoria's Secret Swimsuit Collection. When I arrived, the pool area was already filled with paparazi and press photographers wanting a glimpse of Marisa and the latest VS Swimsuits, which by the way, were so adorable, wearable and still very stylish. Turn here Marisa: Marisa Miller poses at the press photo op, Victoria Secret Swimsuit Launch at the W Hotel Los Angeles I was TOTALLY OVERDRESSED of course, somehow I left my Speedos at home for this segment--Ooops! But then again, I was there to interview Marisa and see the new line--not to be swimming or modeling (thank the Victoria's Secret Gods!). Marisa was SO unbelievably cute, it's BEYOND words. I had interviewed her a few times before for my "Behind The Scenes at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" segments and she remembered. Watch the video below to see how Marisa said "Goodbye" to me. Let's just say A LOT of Straight men wish it would have been them!!!!!
