Nick Verreos’ Oscar Party

Designer and television star Nick Verreos sure knows how to throw an Oscar party.

With the Academy Awards approaching this weekend, Verreos invited the press to an exclusive Oscar-themed media event, where he premiered his latest NIKOLAKI gown designs.

I was invited to this event two separate times: once for Four Eleven and once for my position at Annex Magazine (you can see my Annex write-up of this event here.) I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty excited to learn that Four Eleven is on somebody’s media list somewhere…

My front row seat at the runway–omg I’m the media? Woah!

I was equally excited to find my lovely blogger bestie, Mariya Dandonyan of The Gracious Lady blog, at the event. I also met several other bloggers, writers, and stylists throughout the night–all while sipping a glass of champagne. I was definitely in my element and having fun playing the part.

Verreos’ models walked down a luxe red carpet as photographers flashed and captured their every move. I really felt like I was covering an actual awards show. Maybe one day I will be :)
