NICK APPEARANCES.....FIDM Orange County Open House 2013: The BLOG Recap!

Presenting....Nick: Nick Verreos makes a "special appearance" at FIDM Orange County Open House

This past weekend--on Saturday to be exact--I had the pleasure of going to Irvine, California, in Orange County of course, to make a special appearance and give a very special "Nick Lecture" at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM OC. As the Official Spokesperson for the college--and as a grad and instructor from the school, I always love visiting all the FIDM campuses and meeting prospective students and their parents/family members. 

The FIDM Open House is a way for anyone interested in a career in the fashion industry, graphic design, interior design or any of the many majors offered by FIDM, to check out the campuses, meet alumni, instructors....or get to meet me--and hear my very informative special lectures! Now back to FIDM OC Open House:

I arrived early at the wonderful FIDM OC campus on Saturday so I could make sure to take enough pics for my blog here. And yes, I decided to wear a semi-orange jacket (ASOS) and my orange gingham shirt since, I was going to be in ORANGE County! Since I got there early, I got to spend some quality time with all of the FIDM OC peeps! As always, they wondered "Where was Benny?" ...

 Nick Verreos with Benny--FIDM OC campus

I usually come to the FIDM OC campus with my doggie Benny (as seen in the photo above from a couple of years ago) but...my NIKOLAKI partner David Paul had taken him to San Diego for a family visit and his sister's birthday. So yes, I was alone (insert sad face!). But, I managed...

Ready for Nick's Lecture: The audience at FIDM OC Open House ready and waiting to hear my "special lecture"

I gave a very special one-hour lecture to the attendees of FIDM OC's Open House, speaking about my experience while attending FIDM many, many years ago (don't even think about checking! LOL!), how I wanted to be designer, how I became a designer and lots more! Afterward, I stayed to do a Meet-and-Greet and take photos with the attendees and answer any of their questions.

WHO WORE WHAT?.....The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner 2013 Red Carpet Part 2: The Chiffon & Structured Ladies!

Part Two of the White House Correspondents' Dinner Fashion: Chiffon Belles

"The Newsroom" actress Emily Mortimer wore a red chiffon Oscar de la Renta gown at last night's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. I thought she looked very "proper" in this dress featuring a satin belt, banded neckline and sheer sleeves. 

"Nashville" actress Hayden Panetierre wore this lemon yellow chiffon Katherine Kidd Spring 2012 gown. It was very Prom Queen. I also think there was way too much going on...from the draped side cowls to the gathered bust to the beaded looped trim hanging off of it (seriously, what the heck was that?), it was too mucheey.

And then , she had to braid her hair naturally. File under "what was she thinking?". It was all very...

 "Belle" from Disney's "The Beauty and The Beast"

Singer Katy Perry wore an iridescent green silk chiffon gown from Giambattista Valli Fall/Winter 2012 Haute Couture Collection. This gown--estimated at over $50,000 if she were to buy it (it's Haute Couture and hand-made, kids!), fit Katy very nicely. Notice the immense amount of fabric that is gathered into the bust and waist. It was accessorized with a gold Giambattista Valli Haute Couture "belt" as seen in the above photo.

"Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin looked fabulous in this navy blue strapless slight high-low chiffon gown from J. Mendel. Modern, simple, Grecian Goddess...it's all there.

"Modern Family" Sofia Vergara wore this deep teal blue Grecian Goddess-styled gown featuring perfect shirring on the bust, criss-cross midriff/waist and slightly gathered full skirt. Her lavender-colored earrings, bracelets and ring as well as her gold clutch were the perfect accessories.

Structured Divas:

"Mad Men" actress Jessica Paré looked GORGEOUS and was one of the Red Carpet standouts of the night in a midnight blue Antonio Berardi column one-shoulder gown. It featured architectural structured detail around the shoulder and neckline.

"House of Cards" actress Kate Mara went minimalist in this ivory Prada structured column crepe gown with bow neck detail and three-quarter sleeves. The dress is cut well, (it has to be when it's that basic!), and I love her severe side-parted, slick hairstyle.

"Downton Abbey" actress Michelle Dockerty looked amazing in this purple sleeveless high-neck crepe-and-chiffon gown with structured peplum detail from Elie Saab Ready-to-Wear Fall 2013.

Finally, I must highlight one boy: Bradley Cooper. Just look at him. No, seriously, look at him. Perfection in a double-breasted tuxedo. He looks more like a billionaire Euro Prince than an actor. And I LOVE it!
