special guest/ JOY ADAEZE talks about her 3rd OUTFIT: 3 in 10 acts








What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Bebe gown
Steve Madden heels
Silk turban from my upcoming line
Holst + Lee necklace
Khirma Eliazov clutch
Fossil watch



How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I wanted something glam, sexy and sophisticated and I feel like I accomplished that with this look.



Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?  
This look was spontaneous. My best outfits are created that way!



On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit? 
I give this a 10 for sure! I love the outcome.



What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This gown is so fun mostly because it’s so unexpected. You don’t think of gowns when you think of Bebe. That’s what I like most about it! The details are what won me over: the strapless silhouette, there’s also a bit of peplum here (it’s hidden in this image) that really completes the whole look.



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I wore this look for New Years Eve last year with my boyfriend, Obi and again for the BRAG gala this year (paired with different accessories). It’ll be a while until I wear it again. But when I do, I want it to be just as epic as it is right here.



There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
This look screams celebration and luxe!
