In Case You Missed It : The 25 Most Stylish Event
STYLE kicked off Style Week 2012 with its 4th annual 25 Most Stylish event at Butter on Saturday, April 14th. Charlotte’s lovers of all things stylish walked the red carpet in the plush and modern venue and enjoyed presentations in the fashion lounge by live models wearing pieces from Spring/Summer 2012 Saks Fifth Avenue/Off 5th collections.
Editor-in-Chief, Bridgette West presented Charlotte’s 25 Most Stylish in fashion and beauty, philanthropy, business, and entertainment and social networking. Following their introductions Charlotte Style Magazine’s 25 Most Stylish cover was unveiled.
Among the honorees was interior designer, Rashon Carraway, also known as Mr. Goodwill Hunting from the Nate Berkus Show. “To be recognized among so many amazing people in Charlotte is truly a blessing,” he said. He considers it a true honor to receive this opportunity and is equally thrilled that the Charlotte STYLE gives back to the community. “I think holding events to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte is an amazing cause to support so I am thoroughly excited to be a part of that effort,” he said.
Shelby Christie, one of the night’s honorees and “Bronze bombShel” blogger, said she was thrilled to be considered one of Charlotte’s most stylish. She is a lover of over-the-top fashion and is inspired by Diana Ross. “I’m an old soul and I consider myself a bit of a disco queen,” she said. In addition to writing her blog (bronzebombshel.tumblr.com) Christie is a full time student studying history at North Carolina A&T University.
STYLE named the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte the week’s beneficiary and Mona Johnson-Gibson, Executive Director, came out to celebrate as well. “This is such a good cause and we really appreciate the support,” she said. The Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte houses families of seriously ill children and are continuing their goal of providing a home away from home for those children and their families.
