Simplicity and elegance define his brand and his looks are both sexy and sophisticated. I had the privilege of working with the talented Khanh Nguyen, owner and designer of, “Envy By Khanh.” From a young age, Khanh’s interests and skills prepared him to become a global fashion designer.

His passion for fashion, paired with a finesse for drawing and sketching, led him to aspirations of becoming a designer that could inspire future generations. Khanh is inspired by designers such as Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Vera Wang. Bold Lines, bold colors and bold geometric shapes make Envy By Khanh immediately recognizable.

His looks are typically seen on the runway; so I thought it would be fun to shoot his looks on “real women,” in Arizona. I had the pleasure of working with photographer Jolene Eder with Lemon Heart Photography and make up artist/ stylist Janae Shields (that is a part of my style team). Also special thanks to Jenna Michelle for her hair styling touch! (Below is a shot of the amazing team the day of the shoot!

My vision for this shoot was fun and flirty but at the same time can be transitioned for day or night with just a simple jacket or boyfriend blazer as a layering piece. Every piece from Khanh’s collection has amazing color-blocking and shaping. It makes any and every woman feel beautiful and sexy the moment they slip one of his dresses on. Below are various dresses from his collection that were my favorites! Please make sure to also check out his video below!

I love how just adding a jacket can change the whole look of the dress.

It’s just another typical Thursday night around 7pm for me…sipping champagne and eating Hors d’oeuvres…….lol I’m kidding! =) I was lucky enough to be invited to Rolf Salon’s Grand Opening last night and had great company with me!

The moment I stepped into Rolf’s it was pure paradise; very sleek and colorful in the perfect places with a touch of glam! If you are needing an updo for an event or just want a fun signature braid in their Braid Lounge; Rolf’s got you covered!

(Love this model, Kimberly Lopez was my favorite look of the night!)

During his event; there were models dressed in silk, chiffon and crystals walking around his salon and of course I had to take a picture with one of the beautifully tiny model wearing Furne Amato.

Later in the evening we took a stroll to the Scottsdale Quarter and visited the Grand Opening and Collection Launch Party of Kendra Scott. Her collection is fun and colorful and can fit with any age.

Her color choices are my favorite; I feel that they could go with just about everything hanging in my closet. Throughout her boutique she has different collections in different sections all to fit a color scheme which works perfect if you are looking for a particular color. Whats also very cool is the “Color Bar.” It is the perfect way to style for a custom look you are going for….or even for your bridal party! It works with a television touch screen, you choose the piece and then choose the stones to go with it and then it is made for you while you wait. I think this is a great personalized gift for the person who has everything!

So in the end I had a great Thursday night that I would love to repeat every Thursday! Don’t forgot to check out Rolf Salon’s revamped location at Gainey and get a customized braid for $20 and also check out Kendra Scott at the Scottsdale Quarter for that perfect personalized accessory made by you!

Happy Friday and Style on Ladies!
