Daily Candy Host 'Fashion Star' Designers & Style Suite

When DailyCandy sends you a party invite, naturally you say yes. When they invite you to a Suave Style Suite with free makeovers and hair styling by the lovely Leo Rocco, you say, how soon can I get there?

Now, when they invite you to a party, Style Suite and special viewing of NBC’s Fashion Star with the actual contestants of the show you say, wait, is that even a question?! Hell Yes!

That’s exactly what happened to me last week and so I headed over to the Viceroy with one of my besties to get our hair did and chat up the designers from 'Fashion Star'. Upon arrival, we were escorted to the Suave styling suite where staff from Rocco Donna salon was doing everyone’s hair. While my friend opted for sexy beach waves, I went with something a little crazier and did a front poof. My stylist used the Suave dry shampoo on my hair (which I really liked!) and went to work.

After our hair sessions, we made our way to another room where they had drinks and bites and that’s when we met the contestants from Fashion Star. I immediately recognized Nzimiro Oputa because he’s my favorite designer on the show and I remembered he was originally from Detroit. I started off by telling him I was upset I didn’t buy his coat from H&M sooner because they were all sold out. I even went as far as trying to purchase it on the spot, but my H&M iPhone app wouldn’t let me. #Fail Nzimiro was very nice to my friend and me and seemed so humbled by the whole “reality TV” experience. He told us how he had to lie to all his friends and family and tell them he was moving to Europe for the summer in order to be able to tape the show in secrecy out in LA. The things you have to do for Hollywood!

Some of the other designers from Fashion Star were there including Luciana Scarabello, Orly Shani and Ronnie Escalante. A lot of the girls were wearing pieces from their own collections which I thought were really nice. Check out some of the winning pieces from Fashion Star at H&M HERE.

After all the mingling, an intimate group went upstairs to Club 50 to watch a screening of the show. In the end, we walked out with a cute gift bag of goodies and lots of great fashion tips.

The season finale of Fashion Star is next Tuesday, and Nzimiro has officially made it to the final three. Needless to say I’m pulling for him to make it all the way!

Thanks again to the ladies at DailyCandy for the invite…
