  • ‘I am very proud, she’s so passionate, she worked so hard on it, and it comes from her heart,’ Tommy Hilfiger told Daily Mail about Alexandria’s work
  • Naturalizer debuted their Gen N Project Series with Live Tinted Founder Deepica Mutyala, who tells Daily Mail she was involved in every step
  • Raf’s hosted VIP guests Olivia Wilde, Diana Agron and many more for their anniversary party 

When it comes to style, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a fashionable passerby.

As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot.

To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for all.

On Thursday, March 28th Gallery 33 at The Georgian held a reception to celebrate the opening of Alexandria Hilfiger’s first Los Angeles exhibition, titled Imperfect Harmony.

She was joined by her father Tommy Hilfiger, along with designer Dee Ocleppo, model Georgia May Jagger, tennis player Costanza Pera, producer Karis Jagger, and many more.

Guests like manager Beau Swayze and jewelry designer Pamela Love mingled while they took in Alexandria’s 12 new works and enjoyed beverages by Tepozan Tequila.

‘It’s a great turnout and I’m very happy to be here,’ said Dee Ocleppo about the successful opening party.

Each of Alexandria’s pieces embody a spectrum of human emotion through a series of large-scale acrylic on canvas paintings. 

‘During Covid I started painting the lifelines and then I started evolving,’ Alexandria told Daily Mail.

‘I was interested in the transformation between the themes of guilt and permission and acceptance, accepting life and humanity and the human condition fully – all of the ugliness, all of the beauty, all of the imperfections, and embracing it.

‘And finally finding the freedom which is the body language pieces.’ 

The show is open to the public and will run through April 29th.

Gallery 33 focuses on emerging and established, local and internationals artists and is located in the The Georgian at 1415 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA.

Naturalizer debuted their Gen N Project Series with Live Tinted Founder Deepica Mutyala, on the rooftop at the Proper Hotel in Santa Monica.

The footwear brand that puts women first chose Deepica to be their inaugural partner in the collaboration series, which was born out of the belief that inclusivity and transparency can inspire others.

‘Generally speaking I always wanted to explore the idea of beauty and fashion because the intersection of that is so real,’ Deepica told Daily Mail. 

‘This idea of comfortable in your own skin across both verticals is so genuinely honest to me.’

The star -who rose to fame on YouTube after using red lipstick under her eyes to hide dark circles – looked chic for her event in a two-piece beige skirt set. 

The capsule collection features two styles in three colorways all with clear straps

'At this chapter in my life I feel comfortable in my own skin and loving fashion in general, so when they reached out I thought that this could be the moment when I can tell that story but it had to be done authentically'

According to Deepica, the shoe design process with Naturalizer was what she had hoped it would be.

‘I was involved with every step. I worked directly with the designer on exactly what I wanted it to look like.’

Like her beauty line, it was important to Deepica for the collection of shoes to be inclusive to all.

‘There’s no world where three shades covers every skin tone,’ she said. ‘And I refuse to make that statement in the world.’

The collection includes two styles in three colorways, each shoe features clear straps that allow the wearers own skin tone to shine through.
