Tres Beau ~ Always in Style

Well, she’s back. Kimmera has done it again for you. The latest releases bring beauty, style and class. Nothing less, and we never except anything other than that from a leading designer in Second Life.

Now, as my profile states, I’m supposed to be on vacation. But…when I got an offline message that she had new releases, well, I logged in to check them out. As usual, I’m very impressed. See for yourself below. I’m sure you’ll be impressed too.

Now this sexy number is called Chaplin. It’s beautiful and classy.

The top is a see through blouse with no sleeves. Now I could call it a tank top, but I think it’s a little classier than that. The sleeveless blouse is a nude beige lace with a slightly darker bustier underneath (yes, your nipples are covered lol). The front is decorated with gathered lace of the same material, done in a soft way and put together at the top with a small black bow.

The pants are slightly loose and black with a corset-like flare at the top. At the waistline it’s brought in with a simple belt and for that added touch, suspenders are also added to give a definition of the torso lenghtwise. Now, if you thought suspenders were just for guys, think again. Kimmera has tied this nicely with this outfit giving the whole look a classy feel.

This gives a more business/casual feel.

You can see I took a trip to the Italy sim, taking pics and walking around. This outfit is great for those lunch get togethers or going to a business meeting. An outfit with many wear-to possibilities.

The next outfit is called Milea.

Now excuse my language, but…..oh nevermind, I won’t. But I looooove this outfit. It’s avant garde and very sexy.

This dress starts off with a corset, on top is lovely dark plum lace and from the breast down it’s black. The jacket layer is a corset, full of cinched satin, lace appliqués and metal clasps. At the back, is the same lace at the top but the corset wraps around and matches the front white/black appliqué. Topping off the neck and shoulders is a full plume of beautiful black and dark plum faux feathers.

The skirt prim dips in a U lengthening your torso and hips, making you look longer and taller. And to highlight your hips, the skirt prim fans out, but not too much, giving you the balance visually with the faux feathers on top.

And not to forget about what adorns your head and hands. A sexy brimless hat in the same dark plum and black mid length gloves. Not only does the hat add further height and the gloves that extra glam, but they add a fierceness to the outfit – making you a stand out anywhere.

The third outfit is call Monarch.

So, between the beautiful Monarch wings (spread around in a beautiful pattern) and the black faux feathers around the chest area I can’t think of anything more appropriate than wow. It’s hard to take a living creature and turn it into a wearable work of art without making it cheesy looking. But this gown is by far the best I’ve seen in taking this to the next level.

And best part too, the skirt comes in 4 types, short (sculpted and flexi) and long (sculpted and flexi). Making this a veratile dress or gown to wear at any occasion, even touring the beautiful gardens of SL.

The last outfit for this posting is called Tiffany. This is a perfect name since the RL Rose, called Tiffany, is just a beautiful.

The gown is tightly fitted around your body and topped at the shoulder and neck line with a flowing mass of rose petals cascading around you. The skirt prim is of the same beautiful rose petals with an added train of white translucent silk and ending with rose petals. You can wear this without the train, turning this into more of a dress, but not just any dress, one that will make you smile just wearing it.

I sure looked like a princess wearing this dress. Made me feel like I was in a fairy tale.

I have included a limo below, whether it’s a magical pumpkin or a fancy limo with a driver, you decided.

Limo to Tres Beau Mainstore

Happy Shopping. : )

ATTENTION EVERYONE! IMPORTANT NEWSFLASH!

LindenLabs is now promoting a new feature in SecondLife that allows another resident to use your name. Are you kidding me? For business owners, models and anyone who creates their name to be unique, this is just plain…well…I’ll say it nicely. Nuts! I’ve included a few paragraphs from the SL Wiki Blog on this for you.

“Q. Why is Linden Lab introducing the Display Name feature now?

A. Growing the SL Resident-base is a business objective that we’re deeply committed to and we hope that you’ll also benefit from that growth. We’re also exploring ways to attract new Residents by making their registration and first-hour experiences in Second Life more compelling. We have long known that selecting a Second Life name is one of the biggest hurdles in the new Resident registration process; it is a common reason why potential new Residents abandon registration and it has consistently received very low ratings in new Resident surveys. The freedom to choose an avatar name in Second Life is something that many Residents have been wanting for a long time and it took some time to develop a feature that gave you as much flexibility as possible. This feature is an important step on our social media strategy that will ultimately allow you to connect your inworld identity to other social networks, on an opt-in basis. Again, Display Names and eventually, the connection to social networks, is all about choice.

Q. As a current Resident, what will my username be?

A. Your username will automatically be formed from your existing avatar name in the form of your current Second Life firstname.lastname. For example, if your avatar name is John Smith, then your username will be lowercase and display as john.smith. However, you can still log in with “first name space last name” to both the Viewer and websites, e.g., John Smith. In addition, your name will display exactly as it has, e.g., John Smith until you set a Display Name.

Q. Will you limit the number of people who use a particular Display Name?

A. No, because you can use username to uniquely identify individual avatars. There can be many Residents using John Smith as their Display Name, but you can discover which is which by looking at their username — for example, in their profile.

Q. Can I prevent other Residents from using my Display Name?

A. Not generally. Display Names are not meant to be unique identifiers. Instead, if you notice that others are using a similar Display Name, feel free to change your own name.”

Please pass around to your friends. I have included a shortname version of this posting to make it easier to pass around for you. Thank you for helping to spread the word. You can make a difference. It just takes one person. Copy the link here ~ http://wp.me/pDL3r-1kc

Summer’s heating up with Midi

As Summer is starting for some, and coming to a close for others, here in Second Life the weather can be whatever you want it to be. This can be a great thing if you are wanting to escape from RL and enjoy the suns rays, sitting pool side with a cool drink and great company.

Another benefit of this is the wonderful Summer wear from our great designers in Second Life. And I got some great bikinis from Midi’s that broadens my limited bikini inventory. *coughs*

Now, for those of you who don’t know Midi Aeon, she is a wonderful designer, great person and CEO of Midi’s. As I’ve said before, it’s not easy being a designer and CEO of a company, in RL or SL. But for those who are fortunate to carve a name for themselves, they are truly gifted, and Midi is one of those talented people.

Okay, let’s cut to the chase and get on with the show.  This first bikini is called Surf Monokini.  It’s not quite a one piece and almost like a bikini.  I haven’t seen such a monokini (as it’s called) and think it’s a creative idea.

The left side is left bare and the right side is hugged with the top and bottom in a artistic pattern of blues, greens and purples.  It reminds me of a Caribbean ocean with its waves moving back and forth against the beach.  It’s hypnotic and calming to look at.

This monokini is great to wear to a pool or beach party and will definitely get those comments and glancing eyes.

This next bikini is called Scraffito Tonga in Pink.  It also has orange and gold patterns which reminds me of the colors of a beautiful sunset.

The top and bottom both have the same colors and pattens.  The great thing about this bikini is the additions.  The top has a gold clasp that holds the both sides of the breast covers together and also has a tie behind the neck.  The ties are also included for the bottom, this making the bikini a realistic one and goes to show the great lengths Midi took to making this for you.

When I first saw this bikini on, it made me feel like I was wearing something from the Chanel line in RL.  Kinda looks like it.  If you’re wanting to up your bikini line in something classy and sexy, this is must buy.

I have included your limo below to check these bikinis out and her many other great designs.

Limo to Midi’s Main Store

Happy shopping.  : )

Now, I went to IM Diconay Boa and I saw on her profile a link for her modeling portfolio.  Not being able to resist checking it out, I was excited what I saw.  Needless to say I still haven’t gotten around to IM her yet.  LOL

The website is Wix, a website design host that allows you to create personal pages with your own flair and finesse.  It’s very easy to use and has so many features that assures no one will have the same page as you.

First, you start with a list of standard layouts to choose from.  Once selected, you can choose to import your own pictures for your background and add text, buttons (to link to additional pages you created), animated pictures to add eye candy, and even music and videos.

This is such an intuitive way to personalize you on the web.  Oh, one more thing that’s great about this, you can add tags to your website page to give you even more search capabilities when someone is browsing the Internet.  Wow!  :D

Check out my page here and see what I created in a short time.  I haven’t posted Diconay Boa’s to show you hers as I haven’t received approval to do so.  But check out her inworld profile and grab her link.

I had so much fun with this, I’m sure you will too.  Once you have created yours, please come back and post your link so we can see yours.

Happy website creating.  : )

Tres Beau ~ New Line Part 2

Well, I have a few words to say.  In honor to Kimmera Madison, CEO, and Nave Fall, COO, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TRES BEAU!!!!  I did say in BOSL chat a couple of days ago, but wanted to say again in conjunction with my massive posting which I’ve been a bit late for you.

On that note, Sorry  >.<  Turns out some pics needed extra attention and I’m still learning and my time estimating isnt up there yet.  So enough of me yapping and let’s get down to business, what you’ve been waiting to see.

This first outfit is called Sail.  A perfect outfit for those hot days, out on the water, sipping a chilled glass of champage on a yacht, or lunching with friends at the marina or local restaurant.

Now the whole outfit is in a white, blue and red theme.  Now these are standard colors for a typical outfit, but, what makes this outfit different are the details.

Going from head to toe, the hat (in blue and white with a red bow) is a perfect shader for your face and head.  The woven straw material allows the cool breeze flow though the holes chilling you more on those hot summer days in the sun.

The top, a wrap around , provides a sultry view of your cleavage and is adorned with frills at the bottom and a beautiful red bow, giving it a soft look to the horizontal stripes.

The accompaning white pants light and airy, providing a cool way for your lower half to take care in the hot sun.  The pants are are loose with wide leg cuffs and tied at the front in a criss-cross style design with white string.

From ship to shore, this outfit is classy, sexy and innocent all rolled into one.

This next outfit is called Buckwheat.  A casual, down-to-earth dress in a beautiful teal color.  This dress has multiple layers adding flow and rhythm when you walk or dance, or even when the wind blows across the field.  The top part of the dress has frills in the same main teal color and the arms have matching bands of frill to bring the line of sight straight across from one side to the other.  This draws the eyes to see all sides of you, not just at the main dress.  Because of this, this make the person looking at you wonder what else is on the dress and focuses on all of you to see if there’s more.  And there is.

From the waist down, the skirt is created with perfectly placed, multiple horizontal fabric layers that when in motion, create a wave-like effect.  Kinda almost hypnotic.  And to break the teal color, there is a stunningly detailed, soft brown leather corset that has teal colored flowers and three silver buckles.  A nice way to add a feminine touch but also to show off your sexy waist.

If you need a dress, one that is casual, sexy and feminine for those long walks through fields of tall flowers, or one for a get together in a backyard party, this is a definite must.

Now, this next outfit is casual in a classy way.  You look and feel sophisticated walking down the street while shopping or going to a luncheon with friends or business partners.

The top is sleeveless with a long open black collar.  To offset the stark black, silk fabric in colors of white, silver, gold and black dance in a metallic design reminiscent of asian motives.  At the bottom, layers of long frills hug the waist in the same silk fabric and end with a band of black.  This way of placing the black and silk fabrics almost give a start and end, like a story.

Also included in this outfit are plain black pants that not only add a sense of power and a focus for the top, but they are also loose allowing for a sense of freedom when you walk.  Also, a matching black hat is included that finishes this outfit in style.

I consider this outfit a perfect match for a shopping/dinner date with the girls, or a semi-formal business meeting.

Now a trip through your inventory and you can possibly say that this is one dress style you don’t have.

A blend sex appeal, elegance and haute couture, this dress has it all.  The fabric, a stunning red silk with silver and gold designs of crown-like motive gives this dress the ability to make you stand out from the crowd.  When you wear this dress, you are saying that yes, you are sexy, yes, you are elegant, and yes, you are confident.

The form fitting style is started off with a halter style top, held up by a neck collar that is secured by a black knotted asian button and loop.

The middle showcases ruffles along the sides of the hips and runs back to the deirier, this not only provides a line of sight of you straight down the center, but it also gives focus on your curves – both on your hips and backside.

At the bottom, the high leg slits on both sides gives a view of your sexy legs, a treat for the eyes, and a way to get either attention from the crowd or your loved one, who may in fact want you to wear this only for them.  lool

Needing a number that says you want it all, a dress that says you are classy, graceful and sexy all in one?  Well, I’ve provided a limo below for you to see for yourself how beautiful this dress is.

Now I’m going away from my usual color shots to show the next outfit called Geo in black and white.

I did this to show just how amazing this dress is.  It’s not everyday you can take a dress in black and white and actually have it stand out.

With the hug fitting form, carefully adorned with gems of crystals and onyx in horizontal stripes, this mini dress is a great addition to your classy party section of your wardrobe.  The mini dress alone is great for clubbing or those fancy parties, but if you want to add that extra kick to it Kimmera has leveled it up.  By adding the shoulder frills, something so creative and unique, it sets up apart from everyone else and speaks volumes of your personality, fashion and style.  And what I also like about it is that it is not so short that you almost see your underwear.  You still get a great amount of thigh view but enough is hidden to keep the onlookers coming back for more.

Oh, and by the way, if you haven’t already been to Tres Beau, then hurry, Kimmera has a limited edition dress that is helping RFL.  It’s coming down tomorrow, so Move It!!!  lool  (and yes, I already got mine).

The Orient – Tres Beau ‘Asia’

After a hectic two weeks in both RL and SL I was delighted to hear that Kimmera Madison came out with lots of new releases.  Now I am a week behind so instead of posting two or three pics in one shot, I will tease you with this one shot and then post a massive one soon. : P

The latest new release is an Asian inspired two piece with bright colors and sexy details.  Although a trip to the Orient may not be in the cards for you, or me at this time, this outfit surely takes you there (as much as possible).

The lively and cheery pink color of this ensemble, contrasted by the multi-colored detailing in the design, brings out that happy summer feeling.  My first thoughts of this outfit were of Oriental Cherry Blossoms and its petals floating in a fresh breeze across a meadow.

The halter-style top is adorned with a black button applique on the neck high collar, giving a sophisticated look, while exposing your sexy shoulders.  The bottom of the top is cropped baring your stomach and surrounded by flirtty loose frills, which adds a softness to the companion collar and a heightened sex appeal.

The pants are extra hot.  The left leg is opened from the waist down to the ankle and held together by six of the same button appliques as the collar.  This gives a peek-a-boo effect to the skin underneath and shows off the sexy legs you have.  Also, on both sides of the hips, a fan-like motif is adorned in the same fabric, accentuating your curvy sides.  Both the open leg and fans provide an eye catching teaser to those watching as you walk by or sitting down with your legs crossed as you sip on your Merlot.

This outfit is great for those summertime parties, a day out with friends or events where you want to be unique and noticed.

I have included a limo link below to take you down in style to visit the Tres Beau mainstore.

Good morning.   Well, it’s morning for me.  Tuesday at 1:58 am and I just finished the pictures.  Now I know I’m late, and I apologize.  For one, I found out that the Cool Viewer sucks for taking pictures.  So, ya, I’m not doing that again.   And on that note, it took me so long to finish because I had to rebuild the pictures. *passes out*

Casting Results for CSLTM

I apologize for being late, but not only did SL and RL take away my time…but the worst part was the choosing from all the wonderful photos sent in.

Now, if you are not listed below please don’t fret. I will be doing this again so it won’t be the last time. Also, if you are not on the list, please don’t think badly. I really did have a hard time choosing. My process was a theme, so I had to choose from that as well as the styling, colors, balance and so forth. I must say, I understand what judges, CEOs and coordinators go through picking for shows, print jobs model castings….this is very hard.

Now enough of that…let’s get to what you really want to know.

Confessions of an SL Top Model

CONFESSIONS DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: Tres Beau’s Kimmera Madison

For a long time now, Rico and I have agonized over CSLTM’s first designer spotlight. Who should it be? Who do you love? There are so many premier designers out there that we could have chosen and it was a painful task to come up with our first one. In the end, we’ve selected one of our favorite people, someone who is about to experience her brand’s 6th anniversary in SL. Someone who has been consistently, and unrelentingly, supportive of SL’s modeling community. Someone generous to a fault and unquestionably one of the best high-end designers out there.

Tres Beau’s Owner/Designer Kimmera Madison.

Kim has been interviewed, chronicled, blogged and dissected, time and time again and CSLTM is nothing if not unique in our approach. We wanted to avoid the same ol’ same ol’ questions and take Kimmera somewhere she rarely goes in a interview like this. To the edge…

We could have asked “safe” questions like these:

Where do you get your design inspirations from?

What are the essential elements for success in SL’s fashion industry?

Who are your favorite RL/SL designers?

What drew you into SL in the first place?

What advice would you give to someone starting a fashion business in SL?

What is your graphics design background?

What photo/3D software and hardware tools do you use to create with these days?

You’re created over 400 designs in SL to date which are your favorites?

What are your plans for tres Beau’s future?

But questions like those would be too mundane for us at CSLTM and for our most important people, you.

We wanted Kimmera to spill, to dish, to be unabashedly honest with us. Like it was just the girls having a chat. So Rico and I thought long and hard about this and our candid questions and her startling answers are detailed below.

JT: We know you work, work, work at this since it’s your RL job.  We heard you recently agreed to design 3 Mr Virtual World Contestant’s, (Specifically: Mr. Canada, (More Ying), Mr. Brazil (Maddox Kaestner) and Mr.Italy (Marcus Night)) National Costumes. Tell us about those designs, how you turned around 3 costumes in such a short timeframe (almost overnight?) and how it was working with these 3 talented models? Which outfit was the most fun???

KM: LOL, well, it wasn’t exactly overnight, they gave me a week! And it was great fun!  I love creating clothing, I have had my hand at Medieval, Pirates, Victorian, Mardi Gras, Costume Balls as well as my Bridal and High Fashion.  I love it all!   It’s fun to research a look and come up with a concept then have to figure out how to execute it. Which was my favorite to make?  They were all fun to make, though the Mountie with the beer bottle belt was kind of a kick..and making Maddox go half naked was fun as well!  All three guys were a dream to work with, they had some definite input to what look they wanted…well..all except Maddox  HAH!   But like true guys they all had their say and then let me go nuts with my own concepts, gotta love it!

JT: You were selected from all the women’s formal wear designers in SL by Mimmi Boa to design the final outfit she wore as Miss Virtual World 2009.   Tell us what set you apart in the selection process and how it was to work with such an amazing Supermodel.

KM: Why? Because of my amazing charm and personality?  Ok ok, I lied…actually it was Frolic Mills who asked me, then made me change things on it 3 times when I finally told him to bugger off and asked Mimmi her opinion, we over ruled Frolic and made him cry  LOL Why was I chosen? Frolic had a vision and knew it was my style and that he and I could work well together on its creation, smiles.  Just this week I was asked to make Miaa Rebanes final Miss Virtual World gown, I am again, deeply honored.

JT: We heard you have a fierce attitude when it comes to dealing with diva models and show directors. Is that true Dish… Spew… Tell us what you look for in a model or agency and what you don’t stand for.

KM: A Professional never admits to their dislikes, they just graciously move away, smiles sweetly.  Fierce Attitude, hmm, when I hire an agency or a model I simply expect to receive their best efforts in providing the service they sold to me. If they do not follow through, I won’t use them again, enough said.

JT: Tres Beau’s notorious COO Nave Fall has been out-spoken about Paid vs Free Fashion shows and Model’s rights in SL.  As models ourselves, Rico and I are advocates.  Where do you stand on this spikey issue?

KM: I stand firmly behind it, I have always paid the models that have done work for me whether it was through the fee I paid to the agency (which I always follow up on to make sure that the models were paid from that fee) or though a tip given after the show.  Models put alot of time, effort and passion into what they do, they deserve to be compensated for it.

JT: At the recent RFL Clothing Fair, a gown of yours was on the poster and was the top selling creation at the event.  What inspired such a beautiful piece of art?  How many times did that sell and how much did it raise to support such a wonderful cause?

KM: That dress was inspired by the RFL Clothing Fair Poster.  LOL  I saw it, IM’d Nevar and asked if it was made yet, he said no, so I made it.  It sold like crazy! The dress is sold for 1000 Lindens with all proceeds going to RFL. At the end of the two week long Clothing Fair, I had sold 130+ and have sold many many more since in my shop. I am thrilled that the dress was a success and has raised funds for an organization that is helping find a cure for an ugly disease that has touched so many of us.

JT: Tres Beau is frequently copied/knocked off.  Care to comment on the “semi-legitimate” copies???  Tres Beau was involved in a recent copybotting scandal after you found your designs being sold by Edika Hax of Allegra Versace.  That led to with many other famous SL designers creations being discovered subsequently.  I heard that he banned many top designers from entering his sim not long after being discovered.  What happened and how did you catch him?  Did he really admit it?

KM: We caught him somewhat by accident..call it fate. Did he deny it, hell yes he did, outright lied about it.  Has action been taken, yes, has there been results of that action?  YES!  We are pleased to see that not only is he no longer found in game but his sim is gone as well…will he come back, probably, but he got an expensive slap for his abuse of others work.  If you find or are given something that is a stolen creation, please do not support those actions and PLEASE Report that person(s).  Creators of all types work hard at what they do, show them the respect they deserve!  SL is a platform created by its users, everything you wear, see and experience was created by someone who gave their heart to it’s creation.  Please don’t let thieves and scammers destroy that.

JT: You’ve done many shows, fairs, and charity benefits this year.  To help those that plan on attending such events please tell us what do you liked and disliked, and what went right or wrong?  How do you decide what to support to balance RL and SL?

KM: What do I like?  I like events put on by people with an honorable vision, who put they’re all behind it to ensure that it goes well and has an outcome that benefits those involved.  If it’s a charity, I look for the ones that are legitimate and support a RL organization and prove that the proceeds will indeed go to those organizations.  I have been involved in some amazing events, The RFL Clothing Faire, The Haiti Tent Project to name just two.  I applaud the efforts and the care that went into them!  The few that went wrong were basically due to the lack of effort put towards the project and sadly a few were scams.

JT: After 6 years in SL, where is Tres Beau headed now and what do you like most about your SL job these days?

KM: I daily look for ways to improve, it’s my personal challenge.  Where is Tres Beau headed?  Well, we’ve made it 6 years and there’s many more to come!  I am excited to hear that Mesh will be introduced and look forward to playing with it and being blown away by what others do with it.  What I like most is the people I meet, the joy of creation and tormenting Nave Fall on a daily basis!  My dream for Tres Beau is to make people smile.

Tres Beau ~ Triple Hit (Part 2)

With all designers, whether you are creating jewelry, clothing or architectural structures – like furniture or buildings, the fine details is what brings the whole outlook together.  This is of the utmost importance for the customer because a well designed piece is just like art.  It enhances you or your room and adds a sense of feeling, or it should.  Let’s face it, if you aren’t happy with it you won’t want to buy, wear or show it.

Kimmera Madison is one such designer that strives for high quality and detail.  She takes her time and makes sure every piece is just right.  Unless she has that feeling, that feeling of pride and accomplishment and would wear it herself, she won’t showcase it in her store.

This first cocktail dress is called Solange, aptly named after Solange Benoir, President of Pulse Point Marketing, LLC.  The richness of the mocha color combined with detailed shadows along the creases and edges gives this a beautiful 3D effect.

The top and waist comes with silky fan-like attachments that add a flair and eye-pleasing visual, emphasizing the neck, shoulders and waist.  All the places that a woman finds pleasing to be touched by her special someone.  For an additional feminine touch, a darker mocha rose is placed in between the top and waist fans.   The bubble skirt, in the same lovely mocha color, is fun and flirty and has darker low lights at the bottom which makes the color stand out.

This cocktail is perfect for those semi-formal parties, weddings and grand openings.

This is one of the latest gowns from Tres Beau called Jori.  The bold silver on soft silk calls out elegance and grace.

The top is adorned with a V-Shape neckline trimmed with delicate lace that goes from the front, along the shoulders and down the back.  This gives the silk a jewelled-like accessory.  The top is like a corset, adorned with lace and hugs the upper and lower torso with ripped silk that is met with a beautiful lace applique. The skirt is also accentuated at the front with a piece of layered silk that is laid horizontally in waves, adding a free flowing feel.  There are also matching silver gloves.

Not to forget about decorating your beautiful up-do.  Kimmera has designed a matching silver rose that fits perfectly with any hair up-do.  This rose completes the outfit, making the whole picture come together from head to toe.  As well, this rose looks great on either side of your hair.

This gown is a must have for any wardrobe for elegant high-class occasions.

This last outfit I’m showing you today is called Phe.  A hot lingerie piece that brings about thoughts of passion, sexiness and temptation.  Temptation because anyone you wear this for will most certainly not be able to keep their hands off of you.

The bodice is decorated with multiple layers of criss-crossing black silk ribbons over almost see through black fabric, giving form your upper and lower curves.   With it, an optional shoulder wrap providing sensual eye candy for your sexy shoulders.  The skirt is made of the same see through black fabric with additional highlights of gold in the middle and a black lace design at the bottom.  This gives the skirt multiple areas to which you loved one can use to admire your hips and legs.

When you want to give that special someone a present, something so beautiful and confident, one that no one else can give – and I mean you – this is most definitely the outfit you should wear.  Hands down.

I have included a limo below for you to check out these and the other wonderful Tres Beau lines.

Black & Blue Fair ~ Coming Soon

B L A C K      &      B L U E      F A I R
Fashion for Mental Health Awareness

June 4th – July 3rd a selection of your favourite designers will be presenting us with brand new items at the Black and Blue Fair… these items will be available at the fair and no where else (at least til its over)… Clothing, skins, hair, poses, accessories and more… we’ve got you covered.

The location remains undisclosed for now, but join our update group and we will keep you up to date with the latest information as it breaks.

The purpose of this fair is two-fold… firstly, FASHION. Who doesn’t love a good fashion event? Brand new items, some at discount rates, all in one glorious place?  Lovely.  Secondly though, there will be information about all sorts of mental health issues and illnesses throughout the venue.  Mostly these will be visual aids around the precious couture so that people don’t have to read huge chunks of text.  The main purpose of the fair is to de-stigmatise mental health issues… a lot of people in Second Life have unhappy “real lives”… for whatever reason. Some of us are unwell, disabled, depressed and other people are just lonely or don’t like who they think they are.. But no one is alone, and in SL we can be ourselves. So don’t let it beat you black and blue… Couture can help!

Model Spotlight ~ Dancer Dallagio

I am pleased to present the next Confessions of an SL Top Model Spotlight ~ Dancer Dallagio.

We all know this wonderful women. Not only is she Stilleto Moody’s right hand woman at Stiletto Moody Shoes, but she is a talented model to boot. Her grace, charm and wit livens up a room. Dancer has always been someone I look up to and I am honored to have worked with her. I still talk about the great times even now.

So, please, join me in welcoming Dancer Dallagio as our Model Spotlight. :)

JT. Please tell us about yourself and how you ventured into the modelling industry.

DD. First, let me say how very honoured I am to be asked to do this interview! My first venture into runway modeling was doing a show for Eshi Otawara on the Paisley Beebe show. Prior to that I had done some print work for Stiletto Moody and Baiastice/BehaviorBody. I also did some RFL and Maseno charity runway shows about the same time, and had been a fashion show stylist since 2008. I entered the Miss Virtual World 2010 competition, and had a crash course in modeling :). This led to more runway shows, more print work, and invitations to Model Agencies. Now, I’ve got a lot of experience with all facets of modeling, from being featured on the cover of Runway Magazine, being featured in several issues of BOSL Magazine, Too Sexy Magazine, vendor ads, magazine adverts, and many many runway shows. I take my work quite seriously, but I also love to have fun with the great people that I have the pleasure of working with.

JT. Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modelling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modelling career.

DD. From being voted a Top Ten Finalist in MVW 2010, named one of the Ten Most Elegant Women in Second Life, to being featured in vendor and store magazine advertisements in most major publications in SL, having clothes and jewelry made especially for me by fantastic designers, being photographed by some of the best photographers, working with many of the best models and agency staff/heads, I’m still growing within the industry, and I think every single moment is a defining one. I love showcasing the work of the amazing talents we are fortunate to have here in SL, and the creativity of the sets and choreography are just fantastic. I’m also now teaching modeling, which is so wonderful to share what I have learned with others. I’m still learning every day and loving it!

JT. You have certainly established yourself well within the modelling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

DD. I think the main thing to have is a good sense of style; if you have this, you can learn the rest. Most facets of modeling can be taught, but a sense of style is like a sense of rhythm or music to a dancer–you really need these to be successful. You also need patience, humility, a certain grace, and the willingness to learn and grow. My best advice for aspiring models is to define your unique look whilst remaining true to yourself. We are all people behind our barbies and there are great friendships and knowledge to be had by remembering this.

JT. What do you like and dislike about modelling?

DD. I really love being able to use my fashion eye to showcase a designer’s creation in the best way that i can; to me, it’s all about making that design look well and promoting sales for the creator. The excitement of being on a stage is pretty terrific, too, just as it is for a ballet performance. Each show has great energy. I also really love being in promotional adverts and photos to represent a given design–this is so fantastic to think that the designer trusts me not just to take a design down a runway, but also to sell the actual product. :) I suppose the only thing i dislike would be a lack of professionalism, but I’ve been very lucky in this so far.

JT. Finally, please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

DD. My motivation is from a love of fashion and performance. I once was pulled aside by a designer who thanked me for really showcasing her design instead of myself, and I was so thrilled. Whilst I’m definitely “me” with my own unique style, I’m primarily there to be whatever look the designer wants and will make their design look fantastic. I am inspired by so many, from RL designs to SL designs, classical dancers, and models. In SL: Kay Fairey, Mui Mukerji, Blackbarbie Bravin, Barbarella Fuosing, Mimmi Boa, Miaa Rebane, Sora Tatham, Agtaope Carter, Natasja Schumann, Mavi Beck, Sabine Blackburn, all of the MVW contestants, Linnda Scofield, Payton Heron, Wicca Merlin, all of the models from Agata Agency, Avenue, BLVD, BeStyle, EIMA, Evane, ModelX, Premiere, Modavia, Opium; pretty much everyone! If I listed all of the names, I would fill up pages and pages…I learn from everyone and anyone, and love the bonds that form from being together in shows.

JT. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

DD. I’ve been working in fashion and perfomance most of my life, and I am so thrilled to be continuing that in SL. I adore creativity, and this is a fantastic niche to be a part of. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped me come this far and who will help me continue to grow.


Thank you Dancer for allowing us to spotlight you.  We wish you all the best on your future endeavors in SL as well as RL.
