Ryzenberg On: Getting Lucky at LuckyFABB Day 1

After a bit of pondering, I took the plunge and went to LuckyFABB in Los Angeles for the second year in a row. This time, the beauty and fashion blogger conference migrated to Beverly Hills and featured quite the roster of speakers, brands and panelists.

Throughout the whole month, I will share some of my experiences from this networking extravaganza, but for now I leave you with some highlights from day No. 1.

The bloggers doing their things: I spy Crushing on Clothes and Mollie in Seattle — just a few of my new gal pals from the Pacific Northwest.

Lori was the sweetest. For some odd reason, I thought she too went to SU (it turns out she doesn’t) but we still talked about how she is an inspiration to all girls around.

The Belle of the Ball: Drew and I chatted about makeup, life and of course, boys. I told her that I had in fact, been snubbed away in many forms of technology (just like she was on the flick ‘He is not that Into You.’

These are just some quick snapshots, but be sure to come back to read my entire Betsy encounter, some fantastic friends I made along the way and of course all of the goodies!

Ryzenberg On: Grammys’ Sweet Fashions

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald - The popstar chose a gown with a wow factor and plenty of mirror appliques. Perfect for the Grammys as the look is playful, yet elegant. 

Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Gracia - The country cutie shined in a backless gown from all sides. She also paired the dress with dangly earrings and a Rene Caovilla black clutch.

Rihanna in Armani - Hands down the sexiest gown of the night. RiRi collaborated with Mr. Armani for this look, which channeled a 1970s vibe reminiscent of the days at Studio 54. The dress had a striking deep V-neck and a very bold slit. 

Nicki Minaj in Versace - She sure made an entrance…but not for the right reasons. The performer wore an Atelier Verace cape and was escorted by a bishop. This sure was attention grabbing, but by no means was it classy as it turned out to be tacky and very much like a costume.

Lily Aldridge in Gucci - The pregnant model was glowing this Gucci maxidress as she supported her husband, Kings of Leon, Caleb Followill. She completed the look with black pumps and hoop earrings.

Adele in Armani - The night’s big winner flaunted her curves in an Armani gown and baubles from De Beers and Harry Winston. She was also sporting Louboutin heels, and her hair and makeup are stunning. This is how a star should always look like.

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier - Fresh of the haute couture runway, Fergalicious is certainly on the Tangerine Tango trend. I like the dress, but not sure the see-through underwear works. She accessorized with Neil Lane jewels. 

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad - The actress chose a little cream number cinched at the shoulder with a black bow and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. She definitely flaunted her one of her best assets, her legs, and looked sexy while on the red carpet.
