Keeneland Concours d'Elegance HANGAR BASH 2011

What a fabulous evening it was for two of Lexington Fashion Collaborative's designers Soreyda Benedit and Maui Crane as they displayed their creations during at fashion show at this years Keeneland Concours d'Elegance Hangar Bash! After the annual car show, a snazzy soiree was held in an airplane hangar at the Lexington airport. There were cars, amazing aircraft, great food, haute fashions, and even a salsa band complete with latin dancers! What more could you want from a summer night?!
A group of models including myself from the LFC put on a show for the crowds and wowed them with Soreyda Benedit's impeccable fashion designs and Maui Crane's exquisite accessories.

"Historically, Concours d’Elegance, or “a gathering of elegance,” originated in Paris during the 1920s. The Concours quickly became not only an event for automobile manufacturers to parade the latest edition of extravagant automobiles, but also a spot for fashion designers to showcase the latest styles. The Keeneland Concours d’Elegance is pleased to bring this tradition to Kentucky in celebration of the automobile, which consistently ranks in the top 10 attractions and events of Central Kentucky as awarded by Southeast Tourism Society and Kentucky Tourism Council." ~ Julie Meador for UK News

I am already looking forward to next year!

Sophisticated Living POLO SERIES Photoshoot

Fancy a Polo Match? Sophisticated Living Magazine just kicked off their polo series in Louisville, KY! I modeled for the Series poster and it was shot by Andrew Kung at historical Hardscuffle Farm. Keep an eye out for more sets in the future from the polo themed photoshoot. I love working with horses. I even got lucky enough to do a few shots on it! I'm crossing my fingers that one of those eventually makes the cut. It was certainly one of my favorite parts of the day!

The SL Polo Virgil Christian Tribute was July 9th at Hardscuffle Farm and had an incredible turnout! The weather was gorgeous and there was food, drinks and fabulous fashions throughout. There are three more games in the series:

July 23rd, John Darmuth Memorial
September 4th, Brownsboro Conservation Council Benefit
September 24th, Commonwealth Cup

I hope to make it to all of them! It is such an impressive sport and makes for a fun and exciting evening for the entire family. For more info call 502.582.6563

Summertime Greetings! Tis the season for swimwear...
The July/August issues of Sophisticated Living Magazine have a gorgeous fashion spread appropriately titled "Well Suited" featuring Lexingtonian designing duo Sarah Jane Estes and Pilar Marite with their swimwear and lingerie line 'Penny Royale'. I was so lucky to model for this fantastic photoshoot because I am such a fan of their creations! It was a steamy, hot day but all survived with only minor tanlines as a result. Photographer Andrew Kung shot five looks, and every suit was as detailed and adorable as the last. The photoshoot ROCKED and ran in the Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Nashville versions of the magazine! Can't wait to see what the future holds for Penny Royale!! Those girls better hold on tight!

Several months back, Laura Kirkpatrick was in the studio at Boudoir Louisville shooting some pinups... and as usual the two of us were professional goofballs! So after I was done doing her hair and makeup, we shot a couple fun pics together. Because after all, girls just wanna have FUN!!
