Designer and southern boy Billy Reid took home the big prize this November at the CFDA Awards. Among those in attendance to celebrate the winners were jewelry designer Monique Pean and actress Nora Zehetner. Fortunately for us, I was asked to help them get extra gorgeous for the evening and I even got to bring along my pal, the fabulous hairdresser Michael Angelo. Celebrity stylist Nick Steele found them some great dresses for the occasion.
Makeup.com totally loved their look and even mentioned it on Twitter!
I was thrilled to work with Monique for the second time, having done her makeup previously for the Costume Institute Gala. Nora and I hadn’t met before, but we got a kick out of learning that we both
did ballet when we were younger and she was born in El Paso, Texas, where my mother grew up.
