[On set for our Entertainment Tonight interview with Brice Sander at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR restaurant]
What a whirlwind it’s been the past few weeks! The awesome kind of whirlwind with plenty of ‘pinch me’ moments. I had a plush room at the Four Seasons and dinner at Mastro’s- my favorite LA steak place while sitting across from other fellow Bravo family members like Dorinda, Ramona & Jules from RHONY and Shep & Cameron from Southern Charm. When you’re told that you and your cast mates are heading to LA for a big press tour, the panic starts with what to wear! Thanks to the brilliance of superstar stylist Jeanette Chivvis– the panic turned to peace & power.
Jeanette has this intuitive aspect to her styling. She just knows what is going to look most fabulous on you. I squealed when she showed me this canary yellow dress by Pink Lucy! It fit me perfect and I just knew it was THE dress for our Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight interviews. As part of SOS, you know I’m a firm believer in the power of color. I felt happy, radiant and strong in this yellow. Day 1- a total style success!

Day 2- We had a full day of press junkets and red carpet interviews at the NBC Universal Summer Press Day. About 200 media outlets from all over the world are there to get the latest scoop on NBC Universal’s new stars and programming. My bestie, LeeAnne Locken and I were paired together for all the interviews so we made sure to coordinate our ‘power’ outfits. Jeanette had this stunning red custom made for me from London and she pulled this amazing white jumpsuit from Escada. To finish my look, she added jewelry from local Dallas designer, Harper Hallam. Nailed it! Oh and talk about a pinch me moment- looking over at the press booth next to you to see Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandell. I know what you’re thinking and yes, Heidi Klum is even more statuesque, stunning and stylish in person!
Back in Dallas, we started our local press tour with the lovely Meredith Land for NBC5 at the hotspot, Bistro 31. Jeanette pulled this off-the-chain Elizabeth & James dress from Rent The Runway. Ok…seriously, I want to have this dress made in every color! It fit me like a glove and was super comfy. All about class, power and great fit.
Then, we were off to Culturemap Dallas for a fun interview with the fab Dawn Neufeld. Can we talk about my ridiculously fabulous new nude Louboutin’s? Your dress needs to feel powerful, but your shoes should as well. I treated myself to a new pair specifically for this press tour. A great nude open toe heel is a life saver! If you do not own a pair put that at the top of your shopping list for Spring. I also love Stephanie’s patent nude Loubou’s. Really the perfect shoe. Period.

Our final stop was back at Bistro 31 for a very interesting interview with the Dallas Observer. I decided to change up my look and absolutely love a great jumpsuit! Love this kelly green, twist neck jumpsuit by BCBG is going to be my go-to for 2016. The Loubou’s worked again! Are you getting it now..the importance of color when you’re going to a special event? Cary, Stephanie and I just ‘pop’ in this photo. Whether it’s a job interview, a wedding, important event or hot date- YOUR power color is always best! A great LBD always looks chic, but I always go for color first.
The cherry on top of my big day was running into my BFF, Heidi. I love that our outfits matched! She was there for a quick happy hour with her hubby. Her colorful scarf style maxi sundress was so fun, sexy and fresh. Great tip: Throw a light sweater over your shoulders for the unpredictable Spring weather.
Our final Dallas press day began at the Dallas Morning News with the fun & sassy Dawn Burkes. We were told we could go more casual for this interview. I tried something I always want to do, but always forget. I added a contrasting shoe with my fabulous yellow blouse. It was so fun and I highly recommend it! Cary had an important surgery right after this interview and I love that she’s rockin’ her scrubs. It is REAL life!
LeeAnne finished the day at CW-33. I chose this nude blush flowy dress by BCBG. Another great tip for doing on camera interviews or if you are on stage for a speaking engagement- more than likely you will be sitting in a tall directors chair or bar stool. Make sure to never wear a super short dress. Not flattering on the legs!
