Barbie The Ultimate Fashionista

Today I want to dedicate this post to one special lady that has touched many little girls childhood, including myself. I want to talk…BARBIE! The Barbie doll was a major part of my days as a child. My Barbie dolls were special to me and were some of my first fashion muses early on. As an adult, I would have loved to become a professional Barbie collector, but as many of you know, it can be a very costly hobby. Through the years, Fashion Designers have partnered with Mattel to create the most incredible and fashionable dolls. They have designed looks that have been inspired by their own runway collections making these dolls even more exclusive and marketable. This week, news broke that Mattel is releasing a Grace Kelly Barbie. How wonderful that they are dedicating one to America’s Princess Grace. She was a lady of class, poise, royalty and of course great fashion.  From Hollywood…

Hot & Spicy!

One of the most dazzling and beautiful Latin actresses in Hollywood is by far Oscar nominated Salma Hayek. We all remember her firing up the Hollywood big screen with co star Antonio Banderas in the movie “Desperado”.  Today, she is not just an actress but also a director and producer.  She was nominated for an Oscar in 2002 when she co-produced and starred in the movie “Frida” based on the legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. As far as Fashion goes, Salma Hayek has always been a risk taker. She has evolved her style and her looks have transformed throughout the years. With her dark brunette locks, olive skin and hourglass figure she has brought her great style on many occasions to the red carpet. She has not been afraid to bring her bombshell curves and combine it with great feminine classiness. She varies her looks from short dresses to long gowns and from…

Coming Soon: “Center Stage with…”

I wanted to share with you a new feature theme post that is coming to One Style at a Time. Coming soon is “Center Stage with…” Here, I will bring one fashion designer to the center stage and discuss their career highlights. It’s my way of paying tribute to some very talented and favorite Fashion Designers and their work. In this day of age of celebrity fashion lines and Internet information overload, we tend to forget the mastery and unique quality that is the designer’s craft. The hours of study or work dedicated to sketching, pattern making, draping, and trying to execute a design is overlooked at times. Before a collection is brought to a showroom or even a runway the designer and his or her team have arduous hours of labor beforehand. Years of hard work and a business savvy sense are just some elements that come into play for a successful fashion…
