Last Thursday I attended the Red Dress Fashion Show put on by the American Heart Association in Miami with Kirstin (at the Setai hotel). Overall I had mixed feelings about the whole thing- it was a fun way to spend the evening with one of my friends (while doing something fashion-related), but they were very unorganized and there was a big drama (which I’ll tell you about later).
We registered as media since we were planning on snapping a ton of photos for our blogs. Right away, we were escorted to the top of the runway with the professional photographers in the pit and waited for the show to start. Imagine us in our pretty outfits and sparkly heels amongst seasoned male photographers in all black with their pro equipment… intense. (Luckily, I had this article from IFB to guide me through the process of how to shoot a runway.)
The show was two hours late (but I gave them a break since it was pushed back from Wednesday due to inclement weather) and Kirstin had to run out to the car to put more money in the meter… but then they wouldn’t let her back in because they were suddenly “over capacity.” So we drove an hour to get there, waited two hours in the pit holding our spots, and only one of us got to see the twenty-minute show. Anyway, that’s enough venting for a Monday morning… on to the pictures! And keep in mind, this was my first time shooting runway, so don’t judge me too harshly :)
They started off with swimsuits- this one is too cute, especially how they styled it. I’ve been wanting to get a vintage inspired one piece for a while. I believe this one is Jantzen.
I pointed out my favorite elements from this look. Those sandals were seriously sparkling as they came down the runway. She could probably hear me from the pit gasping and going “Oh, yes. Yes! Sparkle!!”
Loved the silhouette and the ruffles at the top on this one.
This was my favorite look because it reminds me of my favorite look of the season from Jenni Kayne. Would have been perfect if her hair was straight, but I like it like this also.
This one got some oohs and ahhs. Unexpected turquoise color in the red show. Isn’t that hat crazy?! I think I’d actually wear it.
Love the sleeves on this one. Reminds me of my orange Tucker x Target dress.
This dress is fantastic (I wish I knew who made it). I love the pattern and color, but would definitely have done without the shiny red spandex underneath. Also dying over the heels.
This dress was a bit more pink than everything, but it was a wonderful velvet. And these heels had the cutest embellished heels, I couldn’t resist showing you!
That’s the end of the show!
What were your favorites? And… did I do alright??
