Statuesque Gorgeous!!!
Mermaid Chic: Ali Landry--Actress and Host of TV Guide Network's Fashion Wrap" and star of the new show TV Guide Network "Hollywood Girls Night"--wearing NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul, TV Guide Network Academy Awards Countdown/Red Carpet Show
The 2012 Academy Awards occurred last Sunday and as you may know--from my last post, I was part of the TV Guide Network Academy Awards Live Countdown/Red Carpet Shows Hosted by Chris Harrison. Along with Tabatha Coffey of "Tabatha Takes Over" and TV hostess Maria Sansone, we gave LIVE hair and fashion commentary from right above the Oscars red carpet.
Best Dressed: Actress Ali Landry in NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul gown, and Marc Istook, TV Guide Network Academy Award Countdown/ Red Carpet Show
Joining our team from a nearby "Penthouse" rooftop overlooking the Hollywood & Highland Theater were also the very handsome TV host Marc Istook and the always GORGEOUS, actress Ali Landry. Ali is one of the stars of the new TV Guide Network show "Hollywood Girls Night" and of course, she was our Hostess-with-the-Mostess for our Award Show Fashion Wraps this season. I was beyond excited that for her Academy Awards TV Guide Network red carpet moment she wore one of my NIKOLAKI gowns!!! Amanda Jones, the TV Guide Network Wardrobe Stylist, brought her several gowns for her to wear for the Oscars and the filming, and after she tried my NIKOLAKI gown, I heard that Ali couldn't even see straight she loved it so much! She had no idea that it was one of my creations but when Jones told her, then it was "Done and Done"!
NIKOLAKI Spring 2011 dark raspberry silk ziberline sleeved mermaid-shaped gown
The gown is from our Spring 2011 Collection and is a Mermaid-shaped gown in a dark raspberry color of silk-wool ziberline (about 20 yards of it!)--a Couture fabrication my design partner, David Paul and I get from Italy. It features structured shoulders, cap-shaped mini raglan sleeves, a peek-a-boo cut-out in the front torso, open back and full pleated back train. Oh and yes, there are pockets (you know, to hide your lipstick and award show tickets!).
Raspberry Couture: Actress Ali Landry in NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul
Ali looked STUNNING in our gown and like I said, I was so excited that she chose to wear it for such an important event. I heard that when she made her way to film her live segment with Marc up in the TV Guide Network "Oscars Penthouse" location, EVERYONE gasped and literally stopped talking! Afterward, the entire crew--from the grips, p.a.'s to the cameramen--came up to me and remarked how beautiful and fabulous (OK, they didn't say "fabulous", more like HOT!), Ali looked. Now, you know it's good when BUTCH Straight men who normally could care less what gown an actress wears--are beside themselves saying Couture Compliments! And yes, I agreed 110 % with them. Ali: you looked stunning and made my design come alive! MY Best Dressed at the Oscars!!!
