Katrina Heads to the Young Hollywood Awards
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
My company organizes two award shows a year—the Style Awards in the fall and the Young Hollywood Awards in the summer. I always love heading out to LA, and in this case, I was heading out for the Young Hollywood Awards.
While lots of planning may go into the show, the day of the show is all about getting glam! My first stop was to the Jose Eber salon in Beverly Hills, where they did my makeup for the night. I decided on a bold lip, so to balance it out I kept my eye makeup much lighter—but we didn’t neglect the lashes! Personally, I feel my best for a big event when my lashes are looking long and luscious.
Next, I headed over to a salon a couple of blocks away where Kerastase gave me the perfect waves. Originally I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my hair, but the go-to look never lets me down! While the style seemed so soft, I was so impressed with how well they stayed throughout the night. When in doubt, it’s best to rely on a dress you really like to wear—that way you’re confident knowing you look great.
I slipped into my dress and finished the look off with key accessories. Since I’ve worn this dress before to a recent wedding, I changed it up with statement jewelry—a cocktail ring, gold cuff and bold earrings. If you’re looking to re-wear a dress to a wedding or special event, a textured clutch like this one from David’s Bridal or bold fashion shoe, can completely change your look.
After working the red carpet, I got to enjoy the show and after party. With celebs like Bella Thorne, Sophia Bush, January Jones and Hailee Steinfeld in attendance, the turnout was great and the night was so much fun!
