Getting GLAM

by Jessica Sturdy on February 6, 2013

I am so happy to announce that I signed on with the GLAM Network just a few weeks ago! You may have noticed a few new additions to my sidebar, but that’s really the only thing that will change here on Bows & Sequins. Oh, and you might see a few more absolutely AMAZING opportunities, like the one I was tweeting and instagram-ing about on Monday!

Monday was definitely one of those pinch-me-moments! I was at the Rent the Runway HQ here in New York to talk about Red Carpet Trends happening this season! I was getting my makeup and hair done by the pros, dressing up in fantastic jewels and dresses, and getting filmed while doing it. Talk about star treatment, right?! It was surreal!

Most of the celebs this award season have been rocking one major hairstyle, and my hair followed suit.. A deep side-part with soft, retro waves. Talk about Old Hollywood Glamour!

My makeup was peachy-keen! Peach shadow, peach cheeks, and peach gloss.

I went with the Winter White red carpet trend. But the shorter hemline makes it perfect for day time, too!

Don’t even get me started about THE SHOES. Like I said, GLAM spoiled us!
