I always look forward to award season in Hollywood because I love watching all of the beautiful couture gowns floating down the red carpet. They are always so inspiring to me artistically and I love trying to paint them.  I had a bunch of favorite looks at this year’s Golden Globes but Emma Stone’s Lanvin pantsuit definitely stood out as one of my favorites.  It was so classic and chic but also so fresh and fashion-forward.  I look forward to painting more looks from the red carpet over the next few weeks to come.



Ever since I tried on this Ersa Atelier wedding gown this past weekend at Panache in Beverly Hills, I can’t get it out of my head.  The lace is so luxurious, the hand-beading is so stunning and the way it skims the body is so flawless.  When you step into it, you feel like a million bucks and you can picture yourself walking down the aisle in uber-style.  I couldn’t help but get inspired by this gown’s intricate details last night as I sketched away.  Above is my own interpretation of the gown.
