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.

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.

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…
