Art for Life Style Diary: An All Saints Beaded Dress and Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals

So this past weekend, I was invited to my first Art for Life Gala!
I’ve lived in New York for almost 10 years, and every time I hear about the event, I wonder: when am I gonna attend? The time came this past Saturday, as I made my way to the Hamptons for the annual star studded soirée.

The Dress Code called for a Roaring Twenties theme, so I dug in my closet for a beaded All Saint Dress I’ve had FOREVER.

I actually wore this dress in 2012 for my first TV appearance on BET’s Rip the Runway.

OK, let’s dive in, shall we? My makeup, what? The shoes, huh? At any rate, thank the good lord for evolution. And hello! I’m basically the same size I was 3 years ago. Little fact about me: I basically never gain or lose weight, but I guess as I get more publicity, I get more people with opinions about my body. When I first posted the pic in 2012, I had comments like, “You look fab, Claire!!!! LOVE your outfit choice, from the very top to the bottom – gorge!!! Omg, cant wait for the show to air!!! I watch RTR every year!!!!“You ‘re So Amazing Claire!Really Like your New Hair colour it’s so beautiful” and “Claire you look amazing! I love your ensemble and look forward to seeing this show :-)”. I’m not lying! See it here. But today, after posting a pretty thorough rundown, the first comment I received was, “Sorry but you look like you’re pregnant in that dress.”

Guys, what happened? I thought we were cool!
ANYWHO, I thought curls were very 1920’s, so threw some rods in my ‘do.

Crystal earrings and my 1920’s chic look was complete!

At any rate, whether I look prego or naw, I had a blast, and I can’t wait to do it up again next year.
