Getting Glam for Avon Voices

This mom loves to get dressed up. And I had a great reason to get glamorous--a fabulous red carpet event with Avon. You can see a video of the red carpet reporting here(it's a fun interview with Fergie...who loved my dress!). Since I was going to interviewing glam celebs, I decided to pull out all the stops. Sparkle was definitely in order.

I started with a manicure at Sweet Lily in Tribeca. I think the silver Zoya polish shows off the dress and my Stella & Dot ring ($49)!

Since I am not one to go overboard with makeup and I wanted to go glam, I called in a pro. My friend Evey Drew is a professional makeup artist. She gave me fake eyelashes for the first time. Wow did they make my eyes pop. She also put on a bold navy and silver eyeshadow--I would have never had the talent to try this on my own--thanks Evy!

But really it was all about the dress--it's a Lauren creation from Ralph Lauren and I am smitten. The length on the Sequined Scoop-back Mini Dress($194) was lovely and I felt so stylish. Even Fergie stopped to ooh and ahh over the dress. I know this would look good in your closet too--where couldn't you pull off a look so elegant and timeless! And the shoes, well though they look like killer 3" heels the platform made them a delight to wear and walk in. The satin bow finished off the look.
