Miami City Ballet on the Runway

Ballet02It seems like the catwalk has become a sort of second stage for dancers these days. The latest ballerinas moonlighting as runway models are Miami City Ballet's Callie Manning, Suzanne Limbrunner and Adriana Pierce.

The three dancers made their fashion debut last Friday while showcasing Palm Beach County-based designer Robin Fleming's DUCHESA couture collection for Miami Fashion Week. Professional catwalk choreographer Sandra Ward had them wear both high heels and pointe shoes, and apparently, after one of the runway rehearsals, the dancers agreed: "Pointe shoes are a lot more comfortable than walking in high heels."

Bria Murphy – New Face of Dark and Lovely

dark-lovelymdBria Murphy, daughter of Actor Eddie Murphy is now the face of Dark and Lovely. Bria participated in our 2009 Summer Fashion Bootcamp in Los Angeles CA.

After completing our Fashion boot camp in 2009, Catwalk Pros inspired, coached and assisted Bria at the Macy’s Passport show in San Francisco.

Since becoming Dark & Lovely’s brand ambassador over a year ago, Bria Murphy seems to be everywhere. She’s on countless boxes of hair treatments, splashed across ads in our favorite magazines and on TV– she even landed on the 2012 Maxim Hot 100 list.

It was cute seeing Bria get goofy during the shoot, especially while rocking a silver leotard for her gym scene. We just knew she had to have a pretty serious funny bone being Eddie Murphy’s offspring and all.

Bria may get her humor from good ‘ol dad, but it’s her statuesque mother Nicole Murphy–a former model and now star of VH1’s reality show “Hollywood Exes”–who has passed on that closeup-ready pizzazz.

And that sparkle isn’t just for snapping pictures for the beauty brand, Bria proclaims in the clip: “I am dark and lovely because I embrace my beauty and confidence. And I own it!”
