Note from the Show Host:
This episode is very special to me. After our first successful show with a guest, featuring Foxxy Blue Orchid, I knew that our guests were meant to be part of this series. When I thought of who could be the next guest, I first looked at the Hollywood Award Season Calendar and realized that it was the Oscars. So, naturally only ONE name came to mind. Kirsten Thompson! Kirsten is a distinguished member of the San Antonio Fashion Community as a renowned Stylist and TWO time San Antonio Fashion Award winner for Stylist of the Year. The most amazing thing about Kirsten, among so many wonderful attributes, is her heart. Kirsten always greets you with a warm smile, will be there to celebrate with you and when the chips are down. With her amazing world views, she will always be able to quote her favorite poet or philosopher while incorporating it into her daily lexicon of style, as you will see in this episode.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to House of Hybrid for sponsoring this dress, which was the PERFECT look to wear for an Oscar’s Red Carpet. I am in a debt of gratitude with the amazing team at House of Hybrid for allowing me to not only wear this dress for our Style Lush TV ad (yup, that’s me!) but also for this episode. I also want to thank my amazing glam team for my hair and makeup. I got completely dolled up by the talented Jessica Van Nordheim for my makeup. I was so fortunate to have 2016 San Antonio Fashion Awards Winner for Hair Innovator of the Year, Dominic Alonzo, work his magic on my hair. Thank you so much!!

For this episode of Fashion Round Up, Kirsten Thompson gives us incredible insight into how stylists must understand the client’s figure, proportions, attributes and of course personal style while playing with the boundaries established by major black-tie events/Red Carpet such as the Oscars.
We coincided on many of our favorite looks, while appreciating the main theme of the evening, for both women and men, and that was embellishment. Somewhat straying from the beginning of the season, where metallics and stripes reigned the red carpets, exaggerated embellishments were everywhere at the Oscars! It dived more into Spring themed looks with more florals, sheers, ruffles and embroidery. Here are some of our favorites of the evening, but for the full review, tune into the video above!
