That’s the DMV DIVA Jenee in the first picture and the great band The Rising Suns in the second, a contestant from one of our EveryDay Style photo contests in the third, and the hot DMV band Nu-Era in the fourth thumbnail. We say this everyday… DC may not be the fashion capital of the world, but no doubt it’s the Capital of Style!
Big thank you to each of the Show Us Your Style! photo contest entries and especially our guest entrants, Sir Daj and DB. There are a number of ways to interpret “style” but we look at it as a combination that begins with confidence, and then melds in a certain look, a manner of dressing, the way accessories highlight an outfit, comfort. Guess it’s swag when you add it all up.
So we asked our special guest judge, Eny Oh from Beholder EL, to curate the contest and be the sole arbiter of style. After all, she’s pretty well known as the go-to stylist for all things lavish. She’s got that eye for what works and she put it to use in selecting our contest winner, Shannon Smith.
Congratulations, Shannon! Your photo entry, Pretty Girl Swag, has all the elements of style described above. From the cap to the sneakers, the bold shorts complimented by a black vest, the confident tilt of your head, the relaxed pose on the steps … it worked for you, and stood out for Eny. Congratulations also to Adam George, our contest runner-up, and to all the other entrants. We love your style!
Stay tuned to OnStage. Follow us on Twitter @_OnStageDC. We’ll be back with another contest in November with a new set of prizes and we’re working to bring Eny back as a judge. Meanwhile she’s available to meet all your style and fashion needs when you contact her @BeholderEL.
Eny Oh, from In The Eye Of The Beholder EL, the DMV’s premier destination for fashion styling and event planning is our special guest judge for the new Show Us Your Style! photo contest which runs from October 20th through October 27th.
When we talk style we’re talking “Everyday Style” your style - that combination of clothes, hair, accessories, comfort and confidence on display everyday in the DMV. That Yung Richie P Style! We admire it and we want to showcase it for the world to see. So submit your picture for a chance to win one of our prizes:
Mr. West is notorious for his outspoken personality and even bolder fashion choices. Now, it looks like the rapper will be embracing his role as a fashion icon and will debut his collection during New York’s Fashion Weekin September.
Even better, Kanye has been working with some of the best designers in the fashion world to make sure his womenswear pieces are top-of-the-line. Maybe he will get some advice from his pal Marc Jacobs or the creative director of Givenchy, who designed his last album cover.
Check out some of Kanye’s fashion statements:
