Open House Fun: Nick Verreos at the January 2016 FIDM San Diego Open House
This past weekend, I had the honor of making an "appearance" at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM San Diego Campus, for their Open House. As the College's Official Spokesperson, I travel to all of the school's campuses from time to time, doing special visits and giving special lectures; this was one such occasion.

NV Fab: Nick Verreos on EVINE Live TV Shopping Network last week during the January "Wear Now" Sale Show
Last week, I had the pleasure of being back on the EVINE Live TV Shopping Network with my NV Nick Verreos line. And boy, did I have a BLAST! Oh and yes, we SOLD OUT of a lot of styles! I did two full hours with the EVINE Hostess-With-The-Mostess, the gorgeous Wendi Russo. The reason for me being on--besides the fact that I just LOVE being there!--was also that it was a MAJOR SALE EXTRAVAGANZA!

"The Insider" Co-Host Debbie Matenopoulos in NIKOLAKI Nick Verreos/David Paul Gown and Fashion Sketch--2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet
I was so excited to see the fabulous "The Insider" Co-Host Debbie Matenopoulos wearing our NIKOLAKI gown at last night's 2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet. Debbie's gown was a mint-green colored silk chiffon sequined bias-cut dress with a "Sari"-style drape and silk zibeline strapless bustier...

Nicole Kidman in Gucci
Nicole Kidman wore this pink, lilac and violet sequined gown from Gucci. Gucci's new designer Alessandro Michele (he's been Creative Director since last year) has been shaping up the fashion world with his "Geek Chic/70's" new look to the House of Gucci and I guess Kidman (or whoever styled her) thought she would look divine in one of his newest creations. I may have to disagree. This was a bit of a mess. While I give her points for going "out there" (as "out there" as one can go nowadays at these otherwise boring red carpet events), this style was a bit too Cirque du Soleil-meets-Valley of the Dolls...
With that being said...What do you guys think of this on Nicole Kidman? Yay or Nay?
Emilia Clarke in Christian Dior
"Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke wore this fuchsia pink silk satin ball gown from Christian Dior. I liked the color (I'm a big fan of bubblegum pink!) and I love me a good ball gown but...this was a little too Disney Princess-Meets-Prom-a-licious...

Claire Danes in Stella McCartney
"Homeland" actress Claire Danes wore this gown by Stella McCartney at the 2016 SAG Awards. blue color-blocked gown had a plunging neckline, simple and clean silhouette and slight train...
Julianne Moore in Givenchy Haute Couture Spring 2016
Actress Julianne Moore wore a citron green sequined gown from Givenchy Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The collection was just shown this past week at the Paris Haute Couture shows and marked the return of the Haute Couture arm of the famed French fashion house of Givenchy. I have to be blunt and honest about this: I was not a fan. Somehow--in this gown--Julianne Moore looked both frumpy and dumpy. I get that this sequined gown is Couture and hand made and costs about $50,000 if not more; and I even get the whole 70's vibe but...
It just didn't fit her right and the style wasn't flattering, especially the too wide gathered bust/bandeau section. On a good note, I liked the color.
