Miss Yozmit Birthday DIVA! Giving Eye: Yozmit, Saint Felix West Hollywood Last Tuesday, on Cinco de Mayo (May 5Th) was my very good friend Yozmit's Birthday. Yozmit is an artist, singer and performer and all around DIVA!-- she even performed in front of MADONNA, for her Birthday last year! Yozmit Couture: Performance Gown We celebrated at Saint Felix, a bar/lounge right in the "heart" of West Hollywood! Being that it was Cinco de Mayo, I just knew West Hollywood would be a mess! But I didn't realize HOW MESSY:It was like a Saturday night! Yozmit lives and performs mainly in NYC but was in the West Coast visiting a friend in San Francisco and decided to make a "Birthday pit stop" in LA. Miss Yo: Yozmit in Nikolaki "Vintage" silk polka dotted cowl neck jumpsuit, Dec 2000, notice her SKY heels (like Madonna's from "Nothing Really Matters") I've known Yozmit since Fashion Design School--yes, we both attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising back in the day...She was Lady Gaga BEFORE Lady Gaga was FOUR; always giving COUTURE, fashion with a capital "F" and Vogue Italia Editorial...even if it was 3 in the afternoon! So I made the drive out for two reasons: To say "Happy Birthday" to my old friend, and B) To see her outfit! She didn't disappoint, featuring TWO outfit changes in the period of an hour! Her first: A black plunging-neck mini dress/tunic knee-high blue suede stacked heel boots, a purple belt and a fabulous "crown" worthy of a Peruvian Princess...or... a very Gay Mad hatter from 'Alice In Wonderland" , here in her second outfit... Many of her friends came out to celebrate, including "Underwear and Swimsuit King" fashion designer Andrew Christian, who is actually opening his store right next to Saint Felix on Santa Monica Blvd; fashion designer Peter Cruz (who has been designing for Kimora Lee Simmons and her line) and Artist, Illustrator and Photographer Miguel Angel Reyes.V Necked: Fashion Designers Nick Verreos, Andrew Christian and Peter Cruz, Saint Felix West HollywoodBrothers From Other Mothers: Avi Ivan (love the Maria Callas T-shirt) and Nick Verreos, Saint Felix, Yozmit Birthday Cuddling Couture: Yozmit and Miguel Angel Reyes, Saint Felix West Hollywood I only stayed for about an hour since I had to go back to my "Nick Bat Cave" (I had a lot of work to do). But, I hear that Yozmit and Miguel Angel Reyes kept the party--and impromptu photo-session--going, at various West Hollywood bars. Happy Birthday Miss Yozmit!
