Miss California 2009 Tami Farrell
Celebrity Stylist Niki Schwan
Tami arrived at the P3R showroom in a maxi dress cinched at the waist with a braided leather belt. See how Niki transforms Tami! Join us as Niki gives Tami three cutting-edge looks that make eyes go wow, without undermining the image of the title she represents. We also chatted with Tami about her recent engagement, her tomboy phase and beauty secrets. Niki also dishes on wardrobe staples, styling tips and which celebrity she would like to give a makeover if given the chance.
Niki chose hip, trendy choices for Tami to wear on the red carpet.
Top and shorts by Carmelita Couture, Purple snakeskin bag by Giulio, Ring by Marcia Moran.
Niki on why she chose this outfit: “We wanted to do something that was a little bit monochromatic but throw a little color in there. We felt like we wanted to do something a little bit unexpected, so we threw in a purple bag in and some blue shoes.
On what Tami had to say about this number: “I was skeptical when I first saw it in the hanger, I’ll be honest. But I love it, it’s very fun, very sex in the city which is really cute. I like the fact that it has pops of color because I’m usually more of neutral type of person.”
Leather dress by Li Cari, Carmelita denim, Giulio clutch, D&Y shades, Marcia Moran necklace.
“Leather right now for this season is the biggest thing you could try to work in,” says Niki.
On why Tami considers this outfit her favorite: “I love it. It’s very fun, flirty and very sexy”.
Dress by Carmelita Couture, Giulio clutch, Charm Circle bracelet and Kaur earrings.
On why Niki chose this for Tami: “I think the leather contrast specially with like the shiny leather gives it that edge. Again it’s very 90′s, it’s very kind of current with what’s going forward with the season but the white it still gives it that girly edge. I just love the contrast right now.”
On where Tami is going to wear this dress: “You know, I recently got engaged so I think this will be a fun outfit for an engagement party. It’s definitely a little conservative but it’s got the glamour going on with it.”
It takes a pro to be able to transform a girl-next-door beauty into a cutting edge stunner. Celebrity stylist Niki Swan showed her magical chops by showering Tami with hip, trendy and fashion-forward looks to get our reigning Miss California ready for Hollywood.
