Best Dressed Celebs Of The Week

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
We can't say she always makes our best dressed list, however this has to be one of her best looks yet.  Simple, chic, and stunning.  The Oscar-winning actress paired her sophisticated look with bright berry lipstick and tousled hair.

Coco Rocha in Zac Posen
This gown is everything.  "The Face" judge does everything right in this romantic yet bold gown.  The blush hue lets all details pop in the right places.

Adriana Lima 
Lets face it, can she ever look bad?  Our beauty idol looked gorgeous in this fuchsia gown with a thigh high slit that gave just the right amount of sexy.  

Cara Delevingne in Burberry
It's no shocker she chose Burberry, but we're so glad she did!  This statement dress gave the supermodel the perfect look, elegant yet sexy.  We loved her berry lip with diamonds to finish her evening look. 

Miley Cyrus in Valentino
Miley rocked this simple yet stunning Valentino jumpsuit!  We're loving Miley's looks lately and hope she sticks to this sophisticated yet sexy look, because she has been looking fabulous!

Jessica Hart
It's no secret we love rosettes at Soraya, so we are loving Jessica's look here.  The combination of her floral, romantic dress with studded Valentino's in the perfect balance.  

Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace
We are loving Selena's look here with the neon color blocking against the white, the sexy peeks of skin, and thigh high slit.  Ms. Gomez looks so fresh and chic.  Her metallic Jimmy Choo's were the perfect choice to finish this look.  Definitely one of our favorites!

Romeo Beckham For Burberry

I have always been such a huge fan of the Beckham family.  Victoria Beckham is absolutely one of my all time fashion icons.  She is the epitome of effortless chic.  David is not so shabby himself and has been recognized for his cool and fashion forward style as well.  Their children are no doubt some of the best dressed kids and now Victoria has her little girl, Harper to follow in her fashionista footsteps.

I am literally obsessed with these new Burberry ads featuring Romeo Beckham.  Burberry has stated they have an 8% increase in sales since this ad campaign launched.  Now that David has retired, I think the Beckham's have found their new breadwinner.  Check out these super cute images of Romeo showing his modeling skills.

Beauty Talk: Contour & Highlight

It's no secret that I love to contour and highlight, whether its for a light day look or full on glam at night.  There's nothing wrong with giving your cheekbones a bit more pop.  When I met my make up artist, Bria Valencia, her amazing work consisted of some of the best contouring and highlighting I have ever seen.  I immediately knew she had to do my make up!  It does take a bit of practice to achieve the perfect balance, but once you get the hang of it, you will wonder why you have never done it before!  

Under eye concealer is one of my best friends.  I love the way it makes your eyes pop and look so fresh.  After applying my Kiehl's moisturizer, I start by applying Bobbi Brown's corrector in Bisque.  This is not a concealer.  What this does is pretty much counteract with the color you have underneath your eye, and gives you a neutral palette to start applying your concealer.  For a night look, I then apply MAC's Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW20 (I like to use a color that is at least 2 shades lighter than my skin tone).  I blend it out using a Beauty Blender.  I then apply Make Up Forever's Lift Concealer in #1 on top, which is a liquid formula.  I like to use a cream based concealer first then a liquid on top.  I use my Beauty Blender again to blend and I set it with MAC's Mineralize Loose Powder in Light Plus.  I like to use a colored powder to set my concealer, so it gives my eyes a bit more brightness, but you can definitely use a translucent powder.  Again, this is a night look.  If I was going out for the day, I only use the Lift Concealer, and set it with a translucent powder for a lighter look.  I am obsessed with Smashbox's Matte Bronzer in Suntan.  It is the perfect bronzer to contour with because it is matte.  I find using a shimmer based bronzer makes you have that "dirty" look to your face.  

Below are all the additional areas you should highlight and contour and a before and after picture of Kim K's contouring and highlighting.  I have literally tried dozens of products to find the perfect combination and I love all the products above!

Post some of your reviews if you use any of these products above, share your favorites, or leave any questions you have below!

Love always,

Soraya's Fabulous New Blog!

I am so excited to do my very first post on our new revamped blog!  Soraya's blog will now incorporate beauty, style, and personal posts from yours truly!  My fabulous interns have done such an amazing job with posts, but I felt it was important to start connecting with my Soraya girls and give them an insider view in my world.  A few new categories were added to the blog and here's a little about them:

Style Guide:  Styling has always been a passion of mine.  My family laughs because they say I come out everyday with a different look, but that's just me!  I always stay true to my personal style, but I love trying new trends and being fearless with fashion.  Merchandising and working with several T.V. shows is really where I discovered my love for styling.  I learned what photographs well and what doesn't.  There's so much that goes into achieving the perfect look.  With my clients that I style, I try to make sure they are feeling confident and fabulous, head to toe.  This section will include posts from me on styling tips, newest trends, how to wear certain pieces, dressing right for your body and so much more.  My fashionistas aka my interns will also be posting their styling tips or favorite looks and keep you up to date with the hottest trends.  I love to see style posts from my girls, because everybody's style is so different and unique and I think its important for people to see.

Beauty Talk:  Anybody who knows me, knows that I love make up and all things beauty.  I have been sketching and oil painting since I was a little girl.  To me, make up is really creating a beautiful look from a bare canvas, just like art.  I love to try new make up products and looks, in the same way I love to switch up my style depending on my mood.  Over the years, I have had friends ask me to do their make up, people always asking me what products I use or how my make up stays on so well etc etc.  I have also learned some amazing tricks from the fabulous make up artists I have worked with over the years that I am so grateful for!  I think what makes beauty so fun is not being afraid to try new make up looks or hair styles.  This is why my Soraya photo shoots are always so important to me and I make sure I choose everything, down to the model's lashes.  I want to give my customers a sense of what I envision for each look.  I will be posting my favorite products, my favorite make up looks, and cool color palettes to try depending on your outfits.  I will also be posting video tutorials with my personal make up artists, showing you how to achieve runway looks or the perfect make up to match your Soraya outfit.

Rozi's Faves:  I thought it'd be fun to share all my favorites in one section!  It's always so inspiring to me to see how some of my favorite designers come up with their collection, what their hobbies are, what motivates them everyday or what they're into at the moment.  It gives you such a better explanation of their brand and personality.  I will also be hosting segments on our blog and all social media accounts, where you can ask me any styling or beauty questions!  This section is just a glimpse in my world and I hope you all love it!

Soraya On The Scene:  My fashionistas have always done such a great job staying up to date on celebrity style, gossip, the newest trends etc.  This section is dedicated to whats hot on the scene!  We will be updating you with celeb style, newest trends, taking polls on what you think is hot this season, celeb gossip, and keeping you up to date with fashion forward news so you can always stay on top of the trends!  We really want our readers to get involved and share with us what their loving at the moment!  It is so refreshing to hear and see everyones different take on style.

I am looking forward to interacting with other fashionistas out there and I truly hope you enjoy Soraya's new blog! Happy Monday everyone!

Love always,
Rozi Soraya
