‘Taiwan’s Most Beautiful Aunty

Taiwanese TV personality Chen Mei Feng is a veritable treasure trove of tips. After hosting the long-running A Date With Mei Feng for 17 years, she is so accustomed to dishing out healthcare advice and beauty tips that she can go on and on without stopping.


“People should learn how to take care of themselves, especially those my age, so that the young ones can rest easy as they go about their daily lives and not have to worry too much about us,” said 61-year-old Chen.


She was speaking during a press conference in Petaling Jaya to promote A Date With Mei Feng, which is available on dimsum, with new episodes to be simulcast.


The personable TV host was also at dimsum’s “Celebrate Asia With Us” roadshow in Penang on Jan 13.


“In Malaysia, people like watching dramas. But this kind of show is even better. In every episode, you will get to learn new things that benefit you and your loved ones,” said Chen.


Dubbed “Taiwan’s Most Beautiful Obasan” (obasan means “aunty” in Japanese), Chen had no qualms about revealing her beauty secrets, from tips on how to stop the knees from cracking and popping, to her secret to hiding grey hairs.


“When I’m shooting dramas, I’m required to have black hair. The problem with dyeing hair black is that grey roots start to show in a week or two. So, when I am not shooting dramas, I prefer a lower maintenance way to hide the greys. What I do is lighten my hair colour and add in highlights.”


She then went on to talk about how people always complain about their noisy knees and other joints cracking and popping.


“We are always advised to increase our collagen intake. But that is not enough. We also need to strengthen our muscles, as these help to support the bones. ”


But she stressed that senior citizens need to go for more age-appropriate exercises.


“I don’t go to the gym because high impact exercise and heavy weights are not suitable for people our age. I prefer low impact activities. I like to take slow walks, do some yoga and light stretching.”


Food Matters


Despite hosting what is essentially a cooking show for 17 years and publishing five cookbooks, Chen admitted that she is still not much of a chef.


“I’m always shooting dramas or talk shows, so I don’t really have the time and energy to do much cooking,” she said.


Still, she has a positive way of looking at things. “There are many young working professionals who also don’t know much about cooking or are not familiar with culinary terms. So, I help to ask the pertinent questions on their behalf.


“Let’s say the chef talks about superior broth – I’ll get him to explain what it is or lighten the mood by asking whether there is such a thing as inferior broth.”


If there is one thing she can dish up like a professional, it would be her favourite bak kut teh.


“It’s actually not difficult or complicated. I just brew up a pot of the soup using pre-mixed herbs and spices. I like to toss in lots of garlic, whole bulbs, unpeeled, for best results. And if you like it hot and peppery, then just add in lots of pepper. I guarantee you that the soup will taste really good. My friends love my bak kut teh and tell me that it is really good,” she said proudly.


She may not be a chef, but Chen is very much an avid foodie. In fact, she loves food so much that there is nothing she won’t eat. But sadly, she is lactose intolerant, so she has to be more careful with desserts.


“This is where durian comes in! If I feel like eating dessert, all I have to do is put some durian in the fridge and freeze it. The taste and texture will be exactly like eating ice-cream,” she said.


“Some people like to eat it deep-fried or made into a dessert. But I prefer natural flavours so I’ll usually eat my durian fresh.”


Rich And Fulfilling Career


It has been 41 years since Chen made her debut in the Taiwanese entertainment scene. She has mostly been singing and acting almost exclusively in Taiwanese, a variant of the Hokkien dialect also known as Minnan or Hoklo.


The TV veteran has been acting in Taiwanese dramas since the 1970s, and has 29 dramas under her belt.


But it was only three years ago that she ventured beyond Taiwanese waters and tried her hand at acting in Mandarin in a Singaporean TV drama The Dream Makers II.


Asked whether she is keen to follow the current trend of Chinese-speaking artistes entering China’s entertainment scene, Chen said she has been hesitant to take the leap.


“The problem is my language skills. My Mandarin is not that good. All these years, I’ve been singing and acting in Taiwanese, so I tend to speak Mandarin with a Taiwanese accent. I also feel that I can express myself better in Taiwanese.”


Though she enjoys acting, Chen said she now prefers to keep her workload light and steer clear of heavy roles.


“Filming is usually very tiring and the hours are gruelling. There is no time to rest or attend to personal matters. I prefer to take on something less taxing. Maybe some cameos or even a guest spot on some shows and roles that don’t require me to project an unusually strong personality.”


A recording artiste who had released eight Taiwanese albums in the late 1990s, Chen said she enjoys singing, especially when there are good songs.


She is not in a hurry to release a new album though. “If there aren’t any good songs, I’ll continue to wait.


“I want the songs to feel right and the words to be close to the heart,” she mused.


Chen has hosted 17 different shows but the longest-running is still A Date With Mei Feng. “I’ve learnt so many things over the years. And the best thing is I get to share the goodness with so many people,” she said. “Even now, I still look forward to each new episode. I’m still excited about learning new things, and helping others to take care of their own health.”Read more at:cheap wedding dresses melbourne | wedding gowns sydney

Satisfying Your Beauty Fetish

Rumour has it that if you want sophisticated styles and professional service, you should go to 32 Kings Plaza to Beauty Fetish by Tan.


Flair Magazine took the trip and we met with owner and chief stylist Tanesha Barnett, who shared that she has always been passionate about the care and styling of hair. It is true that no matter what a woman is wearing, the look is incomplete unless the hairdo complements the outfit. In fact, she often asks what her client will be wearing to a particular event so that she can know what style would be best.


The world of business is hard and challenging, and truth be told, it is even harder for a young woman, but this one was determined to achieve her dreams. Barnett admits that her biggest challenge was actually fear, but she is powered by the reality that growing up she didn't have much, and she wants to create a different lifestyle for herself and her children.


It is because of her passion that she insists on the best customer service from her employees. "It is not just for the money. I am genuinely passionate about what I do," she shared. It brings her great joy when a customer is pleased when she gets up from her chair. She also admits that sometimes it is not all about the end product. She does what is best for the individual's hair. They might not necessarily get the desired style, but at the end of the day everybody is happy.Read more at:beach wedding dresses | cheap wedding dresses

No rush on weddings for same-sex couples

Couples can tie the knot from today after the federal government pushed through changes to the Marriage Act in December.


More than 60 per cent of Territorians supported marriage equality in the national survey last year.


Wedding celebrant Joshua Pucci said despite the change in law, most NT same-sex couples were opting to delay their weddings.


“Most of those people have already waited long enough,” he said. “For their special day, they’re saying it can wait another year and make sure that it’s special for them.”


Mr Pucci said it would also be more difficult for Darwin couples because the peak wedding season booked up so far in advance.


“I’ve already got bookings for the middle of 2019,” he said.


“If you’re trying to plan this year, you’re not going to get anything. Ideally, most people in Darwin do a year’s planning.” Mr Pucci said he believed the 2019 wedding season would be incredibly busy.


“A lot of people are still celebrating, getting over the crazy road of getting (the Bill) through and passed,” he said.


“And a lot of people don’t like settling for second best when they get married.”


Bride-to-be Jill Pope said she and her fiance Lucy Gunner had decided to delay their wedding to the middle of the dry season, and she knew a lot of her friends had made similar decisions.


“Being in Darwin, there’s a weather factor to consider, so unfortunately the timing isn’t great — we were also not sure that the marriage equality bill would go through so quickly,” she said.


“And it is worth waiting and planning for something you really want, even the seven-month time frame is sort of daunting.”


Ms Pope said the couple was considering getting legally married at the Darwin Registry Office sooner, and have their official wedding at the perfect time for them.


“(It would be good to) have the legal stuff out of the way before the celebration,” she said.Read more at:vintage wedding dresses | beach wedding dresses

The fashion and beauty news that rocked 2017

The fashion industry bid goodbye to some prominent figures in 2017.


In November, the Tunisian-born fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, known for his celebration of the female form through sculpted clothes that clung to the body, died at the age of 82.


As a young man, he moved to Paris and worked for the likes of Christian Dior, Guy Laroche and Thierry Mugler before setting up his own atelier with the help of rich patrons. In an industry that followed a strict seasonal calendar, Alaïa would prove to be a dissident: He showed his collections only when he felt ready.


In September, Pierre Bergé, the cofounder of Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, died at 86. Saint Laurent’s longtime romantic and business partner is credited for having been instrumental in convincing the designer to do ready-to-wear in 1966, which proved to be both a commercial and critical success. Even after Saint Laurent’s death in 2008, Bergé continued to be a moving force in fashion as well as arts and culture projects, and a powerful advocate of gay rights and AIDS research.


At age 89, Samuel Irving “Si” Newhouse Jr., longtime chair of Condé Nast and known arts patron, died in October. Under the company founded by his father, he hired British editor Tina Brown to resurrect Vanity Fair, and acquired the New Yorker in 1985 (also later helmed by Brown). In 1988, Anna Wintour was brought in to American Vogue from its British counterpart, also under Si’s watch.


Also in October, Hervé L. Leroux, the man behind the once wildly popular Hervé Léger bandage dress, died at age 60 of an aneurysm. In 1998, his brand was acquired by the American company BCBG Max Azria, to whom he would lose the Hervé Léger name after a falling out. He rechristened himself Hervé L. Leroux on the suggestion of his friend, Karl Lagerfeld. Later, Leroux briefly headed the Guy Laroche design team.


Closer to home, the biggest fashion and beauty news in the past year included:


The sold-out first makeup collections of local stars Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda. Curtis’ BLK Cosmetics and Ganda’s Vice Cosmetics were inspired by the massive success of international stars like Rihanna, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian, who each have their own beauty brands.


The respective star-studded and stylish weddings of Anne Curtis and Dr. Vicki Belo also made headlines this year. The actress-TV host wore dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang (with chunky boots) to her Queensland, New Zealand spring wedding to businessman Erwan Heussaff. The celebrity doctor, meanwhile, also wore several couture dresses (by Michael Cinco and Lhuillier) to her grand Paris wedding to Dr. Hayden Kho Jr. The reception was held at Paris’ Palais Garnier.


Another big Philippine event was the visit of Singaporean-American writer Kevin Kwan, whose third book in the “Crazy Rich Asians” series features characters based on his Filipino friends, and a pivotal scene set in Palawan. In the soon-to-be-released film adaptation, Fil-Am comedian Nico Santos plays a major character. Kris Aquino also has a cameo role.


In January, Filipino fashion designers showed their mettle as they dressed contestants in the noncompetition events of Miss Universe 2016, which was held in Manila.


Fashion entrepreneur Mark “Jappy” Gonzalez, who brought brands like Comme des Garçons, Balenciaga and Lanvin to the Philippines, made it to the prominent Business of Fashion 500 (BOF 500) list. The H&F Retail Concepts founder joined other global movers and shakers of the fashion industry, composed of executives, retailers, fashion media, celebrities and influencers.


Two major retailers marked respective milestones this year. The Tantoco-owned Rustan’s, the purveyor of luxury retail, marked its 65th anniversary, while the Ben Chan-led Bench celebrated its 30th year. Josie Natori also marked the 40th year of her brand.


There were several big fashion events in Manila in 2017, one of which was the Red Charity Gala featuring avant-garde designer Joey Samson. Accessories designer Wynn Wynn Ong also presented a retrospective exhibit at the Yuchengco Museum on her 15th anniversary.


Meanwhile, at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts’ Costume Institute in New York, the big-ticket event was the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibit.


Edward Enninful released his first edition for British Vogue as its editor in chief, with model Adwoa Aboah on the cover. The Ghanaian-born stylist succeeded longtime editor Alexandra Schulman, who resigned in January, and is the magazine’s first male editor.


On the 20th death anniversary of Gianni Versace, his sister Donatella reunited ’90s supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer, in very-Versace gold lamé, for the Versace Spring 2018 show in Milan. Gianni Versace is widely credited for his role in creating the ’90s supermodels. In 1991, Campbell, Crawford, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista strutted arm in arm on the Versace runway while lip-synching the ’90s George Michael anthem, “Freedom.”


Michael Cinco, the Samar-born Dubai-based designer, was on a roll this year. The wedding dress he made for a Swarovski heiress, reportedly worth $1 million, made headlines around the globe. Victoria Swarovski’s dress took five months to make and consisted of a ball skirt with a stretch tulle nude bodice encrusted with thousands of Swarovski crystals. The designer said the bride and her sisters brought him three suitcases of crystals for the dress.


His was a private visit, but shoe maestro Christian Louboutin’s Philippine sojourn was still the talk of fashionable Manila. At the Philippine Tatler ball, he was seen dancing with actress Heart Evangelista, and also graced a couple of private dinners hosted by longtime friend Maritess Tantoco-Enriquez.


2017 fashion icons


The Trump women, Melania and Ivanka. The world was agog about everything the two women wore, like the world always does when there’s a new woman in the White House. The American First Lady was ruthlessly compared to her predecessor, fashion plate Michelle Obama, and was pilloried for wearing towering stilettos to visit the victims of Hurricane “Harvey” in Texas. Overall, however, the former model wowed wherever she went.


Move over, Kate. Kensington Palace has another fashion icon in Meghan Markle, the fiancée of Prince Harry. In her first official appearance as a soon-to-be royal, the “Suits” actress hit all the right notes with two unknown brands, one Canadian and one Italian (both pieces reportedly sold out online), according to fashion critics. On her first official engagement a few days later, she wore a critically approved beige skirt from British brand Joseph, and a purse from Edinburgh-based Strathberry. Her coat was by Mackage, a Canadian brand. The American future duchess lived for many years in Toronto, where her hit show was filmed.Read more at:wedding dresses melbourne | wedding dresses online

Apparently, she is one of the esteemed Reggae and Dancehall songwriter and singer not only in Jamaica but worldwide. Her popular albums include; No Ordinary Love, Sacrifice, Obsessed, Baby Love, Without You, Forever More, Color Blind and Flash Back to Dancehall among many others. Aliane has also worked alongside other artists including Kenyan Wyre the Love Child and Willy Msafi.


Alaine and Willy Paul


I doubt there is no one who does not know who is Willy Paul. He is a talented young and promising talent who has been circle in controversies and drama from his religious practice to relationship with women. Nonetheless, the Fanya singer is still doing just fine in the gospel industry and popularity raising.


Alaine and Willy Paul Msafi recently caused a stir online when wedding photos of the two surfaced online. They both confirmed that indeed they had gotten married and were happy about it. Alaine confirmed that she had finally found Wafula – Lover and has always wanted to settle in Kenya and this was the chance. Willy Msafi nods and says, “You heard her”.


Willy Paul Wife Age


They fans expressed their mixed reservation some send congratulatory messages while some questioned the union. They dug deep and discovered Willy Paul age was 24 while for the Bride, should I say how old is Alaine, 38.


However, days after the release of their Project, ‘I Do’, and Willy Paul revealed that no wedding had taken place and that the photos shared online where from the video shooting of the I Do song.


Clearly, they deliberately caused the public excitement so that when the song is finally dropped it similarly is received with excitement. Quick assumptions we made right?

This Jamaican ace keeps a low profile especially in matters concerning family and love. Little is known about her love life although we know that the lady is not yet married even at 38 and neither is she with a child.


There has been alleged news of her getting married in Kenya; to who may be Willy Paul or is it Larry Madowo. These are just allegations, she loves the country and the love her fans give her whenever she is around.Read more at:cheap wedding dresses melbourne | wedding dress

Bridesmaid dresses in Melbourne get a stylish hand

Pope, along with her business partner Bonnie Sinclair, recently opened The Bridesmaid Studio in Prahran in the hope of offering an antidote to traditional bridesmaid shopping and off-the-rack wedding attire.


The new bridesmaid business allows brides and their maids to choose from a selection of gowns from international designers including Monique Lhuillier and Jenny Yoo, and have them made-to-order in the colour, size and silhouette of their choosing.


Pope, now based in LA, is responsible for dressing an A-list clientele for red carpet events, and said her position in the industry has allowed her to address a gap in the Australian fashion market that she is passionate about.


“Before becoming a stylist I worked in retail, and bridesmaid shopping could be so fraught,” she said.


“People would be looking for numerous sizes and if one store didn’t have them all, they would have to put dresses on hold and traipse all over the city until they had a dress to fit everyone.”


“Our showroom makes it easy and convenient for brides to accommodate their entire wedding party because being made to order, we are able to offer clients a huge range of sizes, silhouettes, colours and fabrics, and because we are working with large international brands, we are able to offer prices that are affordable and accessible while maintaining high quality and integrity.”


Prices range from $350 to $550 while Sizes start at a US 00, the equivalent of a size 2 in Australia and go up to a US 28, which is the equivalent of a size 32 in Australia, as well as maternity styles.


While the showroom only stock dresses currently, Pope said clients receive the full celebrity experience.


“There’s a lot of communication back and forth between me and the designers and we are so involved in these people’s lives; we exchange texts and photos, I recommend shoes and accessories or cover-ups. We are providing a very tailored, intimate experience,” she said.


Dresses can be ordered within 6-12 weeks prior to the weeding, with a “rush fee” option available for last-minute brides.Read more at:One Shoulder Bridesmaid Dresses | Beach Bridesmaid Dresses

12 Effortlessly natural wedding

Every woman wants to look her best on her wedding day. Of course, nothing beats having a glowy, healthy-looking complexion on your big day. In order to achieve that, it’s important you start prepping your skin early to avoid any disappointments.


6 Tips to jump-start your wedding beauty routine:


Staying hydrated: It’s a surprisingly easy celebrity secret: drinking lots of water, particularly before a major event, to keep their skin dewy, radiant and in tip-top condition. It makes a perfect canvas for makeup application too.


Facials: To keep your skin in check and acne free, get a few facial treatments at least one month before the big day. Getting facials too close or right before the day is a surefire way to get blotchy and cakey.


Multi-Masking: Face masks are the easiest way to give your skin a quick TLC. With the multi-masking technique, you can boost moisture, brighten your dull areas and improve your skin’s texture in all the right places.


Teeth Whitening: Keep your smile brilliantly white by going to a dental cleaning service a week before. For a more inexpensive option, you can opt for Crest 3D white strips or teeth whitening kits.


Eyelash Extensions: Eyelash extensions or false lashes are great way to enhance your pretty peepers.


Hire Professionals: If you don’t have enough time to spare, hire a hair stylist and makeup artist at the same time. Doing both your hair and makeup would save you time on your wedding day!


In the gallery above, we’ve rounded up our favourite natural makeup looksthat are simple yet very classy. Ultimately, it would be the best to look like a better version of yourself, don’t you think?Read more at:vintage bridesmaid dresses | plus size bridesmaid dresses

Lovely gifts for the Newlyweds

CHIP-IN FOR THE ULTIMATE GIFT


When you are close to the couple, you may already know something that their heart desires. But at the same time, you may not have the budget to get them that dream present. In that case, you could gather the family members or friends to chip in and buy something that is precious and thoughtful at the same time. A collective effort ensures a worthy gift from the entire group.


Rasha Hamid, who got married recently, said all her cousins presented her with a couple's plane ticket to Paris as their wedding gift. “It was a trip of a lifetime for us and we will always cherish those memories.”


Lest you have only a few members to chip in, you can always book a spa retreat for the couple at any of the five-star hotels in Dhaka or resorts outside the capital. They would surely enjoy a couple's massage or weekend getaway to de-stress from the pandemonium of the wedding party.


ALL HAIL THE MONOGRAM


A customised gift shows that you took the time and effort to make their wedding day special. Spice up an everyday mundane object by getting the couple's initials engraved on the item. It may be a locket or even a cheese board with their initials; you can bet they would be proud to hold on to that gift for long. A 'Mr and Mrs' bed sheet, pillow cases, mugs, key chains, bathrobes and towels also make for interesting and fun gifts.


CASH ALL THE WAY


Many couples breathe a great sigh of relief when they receive cash/gift cheques as a present. Just drop the cash or gift cheque into a suave envelope and stick it with an oversized bow and voila! You are all set. One obvious reason for joy is that the money can actually be used for something important. But another factor that is overlooked is that the couple does not have to stow away hundreds of gifts that they do not need at all. Storage is a big issue in today's homes and many have to wait a long time to be able to re-gift those, if at all!


When Dinah Haque got married, her maternal uncle asked her to sign a few important bank papers. Later, he gave those papers back to her and she stowed those safely away in the bank locker. Her uncle had gifted the couple a fixed bank deposit in their name. Five years on, when the investment instrument matured, the couple ended up receiving a substantial amount of money as savings.


MAKE A COMPASSIONATE MOVE


Couples these days are taking a strong social stance, which is a welcome bold move. On their wedding invitation cards, couples list the charities that are close to their hearts or a mission that they feel strongly about.


Couples could sponsor a child with their gift money. The current Rohingya situation has engulfed the global news space and a newlywed couple could also make a contribution there. Some noteworthy options include UNFPA, Direct Relief International, and the Chattagram Maa-O-Shishu Hospital.


All that couples want to do on their big day is to enjoy the day with their near and dear ones. Their only aspiration is for their family members to do the same as they set off on their new lives together. Amid the merriment, fairy-tale like décor and scrumptious biryani, they truly wish for prayers and blessings for their new journey!Read more at:wedding dresses melbourne | wedding dresses sydney

Wedding Ceremony

The wedding of President Joko Widodo’s only daughter Kahiyang Ayu has proceeded as planned despite a planned attack on the ceremony, which has been foiled by the police.


With thousands of invited guests in attendance, many of whom are important political figures and foreign ambassadors, the wedding of Indonesia’s first daughter was always considered a high-profile event. The wedding ceremony, held in Solo on Wednesday, attracted national media attention with the country’s citizens enthralled by the extravagant televised images.


Police vigilance paid off and enabled them to catch and arrest a suspected Muslim militant who had planned an attack on the wedding reception. “He planned to launch an amaliyah (attack) at the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta and at the wedding ceremony of President Jokowi’s daughter,” Jakarta Police spokesman Raden Argo Yuwono said, as quoted by South China Morning Post.


The police identified the suspect as 25-year-old Rizky Anggara Putra and managed to arrest him after raiding his rented house in Bekasi and ultimately foiling the attack on the royal wedding.


The wedding itself was befitting for a king, with Ayu and groom Bobby arriving in separate gold-decorated chariots surrounded by presidential bodyguards in black suits, red ties and sunglasses. However, some parts of the wedding have been kept modest, best epitomized by the rickshaws that were hired to carry some of the guests to the location. President Widodo also chose to hold the ceremony at Graha Saba Buana Hall, a property he owns, with catering services provided by his son’s company.


The wedding ceremony also showcased Indonesia’s cultural diversity by featuring a parade in which people wearing ethnic costumes from all parts of the diverse country. The president and his family were dressed in traditional Javanese formal wear.Read more at:wedding gowns perth | wedding dresses online

Fashion Show Packs City Hall

Fashion Show Packs City Hall

Lake Mills City Hall was a fashionista haven, Oct. 26, as the Fall Into Fashion show drew a packed house of ladies looking at the latest trends and shopping enthusiastically.


The event also featured a silent auction, as ladies-night-out delivered the goods and people left with full shopping bags and big smiles.


Tyranena Ladies Club President Natalie Raupp said the inspiration behind the Fall into Fashion Show was raising more money to help Lake Mills.


“We try to keep it local,” she said.


The money benefits local charities, he said, like the Fargo Library Summer Reading Program, the Emergency Medical Services, the Lake Mills Food Pantry and the Rock River Free Clinic in Jefferson.


"We also help the Rock Lake Improvement Association, and the Lake Mills Main Street Program,” she said. “We also give $750 to a recipient at the High School who shows commitment to service in the community.”


Raupp said the models represent the Banana Republic, Premiere Couture, and LulaRoe.


“We have a lot of friends and family doing the modeling,” she said. “Some of the stores are supplying their own models like the Banana Republic and hair is being done by Sam at Denny’s Hair Salon, and Cost Cutters is helping.”


She said a Mary Kay consultant is helping with makeup.


The goal of the evening, she said, was to have a fun event that was affordable for everybody.


“We had water donated by the Lake Mills Market, and some of our ladies have made all the hors-d'oeuvres,” she said. “We bought the cheesecake from Costco.”


She loves how much all the ladies have come together.


“We’re having a great time, and I believe that everyone who comes tonight is going to leave thinking that they’ve got their money’s worth for a good cause.


John Reich said he was having a great time being the emcee, but admitted he was a little outnumbered by all the women.


Lake Mills Main Street Executive Director Katie Otto said she wasn’t sure what to bid on because she just arrived.


“It’s great because it's raising money for the Tyranena Ladies Club and it’s different,” she said. “I hope it becomes an annual event.”


Gloria Staplemann loves seeing all the woman attending the event is the highlight of the evening.


Corrine Hunter was on hand with her fashions from LulaRoe and said she wanted to showcase everything she carries in her personal and home boutique.


“Some of the styles fall true to what people love today, especially for the fall season,” she said. “I grabbed a little bit of everything.”


Hunter said the wardrobe focuses on simplicity and what to wear to work.


“We’re here as women from all walks of life, and we want to make sure that we represent those women with the clothing line,” she said.


“I have a printed script,” he said. “They were very clear about what I had to say.”


Mary Lynne Mason said the evening is fun.


“I bought raffle tickets, so we’ll see how I do,” she said. “They (the Tyranena Ladies Club) do a lot of good things in the community, and I think they are a great organization.”


Theresa Peachey said she was having a great time modeling the LulaRoe Fashions and was wearing an Emilia outfit that was backward.


“It’s very versatile, so I am able to turn it around and put a shirt on underneath it and use the zipper as an accessory,” she said.


She picked the outfit.


“I have several of these Emilia’s in my closet,” she said. “I work for American Family Insurance, so I’ve worn them to work quite often, I wear them for holiday events that my husband and I go to.”


She liked the big crowd.


“They seem like they enjoy the fashion show,” she said.


Erika Ewelt modeled the wedding dress and received a lot of positive feedback.


“This is practice,” she said about any future wedding plans.


She became associated with modeling through her mother.


“I think it’s fun seeing all the other ladies who model and doing something for the community,” she said.


Her sister Rebecka Ewelt and had her hair dyed pink.


“I was in a hair show,” she said. “It took about four hours in the salon.”


She loved wearing the dresses.


“We don’t get to do anything like this, so it’s fun,” she said.


Raupp said the Tyranena Ladies Club has open membership.


“We initiated five ladies last year and two joining possibly this year who are checking us out,” she said. “It’s open to anyone.Read more at:wedding dresses brisbane | wedding dresses perth
