Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami

Did you catch Miami's big event? The fashion week was spectacular filled with model mayhem and celebrity frenzy---what is in store for Summer 2008? Prints, metallics, Bohemian styles, eye-popping colors and cute coverups and cutouts.

Stylist, Lisa Cera, went all out to showcase New York vibe, adding a "wow" factor to Red Carter's suits. From fingerless striped gloves to poufy bobbed wigs, she added extra oomph to the collection. The show brought in 600 attendees!

Jessica Simpson turned on the charm with innocent-looking suits, sporting red, white and blue!

Tyson Beckford wasn't the only hunky male model to sport some colorful trunks for Parke & Ronen.

---This is just a preview! I will have a full rundown and pics very soon for all that missed the festivities.

Morgan Miller event!

Check it out! Charity shopping event taking place at Morgan Miller for Cool Junkie.

To kick off a month dedicated to the Soles4Souls charity, Morgan Miller is hosting a launch event on Wednesday, August 22 from 5 – 9 PM. Customers who generously donate one pair of “lightly worn” shoes receive 20% off all merchandise, and those donating two pairs enjoy a 30% discount. The boutique will be serving champagne and light hors d’ oeuvres as guests view new merchandise and create their own custom-designed shoes. The shoe drive and customer discount will continue through September 31.

Soles4Souls facilitates the donation of used shoes to people in need worldwide. The first region serviced by the Soles4Souls team was the area affected by the Asian tsunami. Since then, they’ve delivered millions of pairs of shoes across the globe including the US, Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, The Dominican Republic and Sudan.

Morgan Miller puts the creative power in the hands of her customers, fashionistas choose from a selection of soles, spanning wooden heels to cork wedges, and more than 100 swatches in various patterns, leathers and exotic skins. Accessories such as jewels, chains and bamboo personalize the look even further. Celebrity fans include Brooke Hogan, Bad Boys II actress Gabrielle Union, The 40-Year-Old Virgin’s Stormy Daniels, and Victoria’s Secret beauty Marissa Miller. The boutique is located just off Lincoln Road at 1634 Euclid Avenue.
