DailyCandy & Suave’s Style Suite featuring “Fashion Star” & Leonardo Rocco
Last week, I was invited by DailyCandy and Suave to enjoy an evening at the Viceroy Hotel for drinks, eats, music, gift bags, and a private screening of the Fashion Star. Plus, South Beach-based Suave stylist Leonardo Rocco was hosting mini makeovers for the local blogueras! I’ve been a Daily Candy subscriber since I moved to Miami and who doesn’t love the Suave Style Suite…so I was more than eager to attend this fab evening of fun!
Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the handsome Argentinian with a slight Cuban accent, Rocco, who took some time to chat with me and shared his favorite Suave products over some bubbly. He is quite the charmer and definitely knows his stuff…having styled celebrities around the world! It also helps that he lives in Miami, having moved from Argentina over 10 years ago, as he was able to give me some tips to control the frizz in my hair caused by the humidity. This Miami-newbie definitely appreciated the tips, and I learned that the dry shampoo also works as a thickener for my well-plachada hair that always falls flat after so much straight ironing!
I also had the pleasure of meeting DailyCandy Miami editor Ginger Harris which was cool for me since Daily Candy has become to my go-to guide to help me keep up with all the fabulous events going on in the 305. The whole team was so very dulce…as their name implies!
After our style sessions, the blogueras joined the rest of the party for makeovers and photo opps with Fashion Star contestants Nikki Poulos, Luciana Scarabello, Nzimiro Oputa, Orly Shani, and Ronnie Escalante.
Very cool evening to say the least! Thanks to Suave and Daily Candy for organizing this great event…and if you want to see more of my adventures in Miami, connect with LasGringasBlog on Facebook and Twitter!
