We watched gorgeous and fashionable Ariana Madix work her way through the drama on Season 2 of standout Bravo series Vanderpump Rules, and then the reunion show took our following to a whole new level. And it wasn’t because of her new relationship, it was because of her closet. Ariana’s sexy leather trim tuxedo jacket and leather shorts, with the perfect accessories, makeup and a fishtail braid to die for had people buzzing, and not because the SUR bartender over served them. Find out what Ariana had to say about her reunion look, her style icons and get her down-to-earth fashion advice that you that will make you love her even more in the BigBlondeHair.com Style 6 with Ariana Madix.
1. You are on a shopping spree; what are the first 3 stores we would catch you in?
I do so much shopping online! But for the real deal: LF Stores, Reform School in Silverlake, and Topshop.
2. Fans absolutely loved your Vanderpump Rules Season 2 Reunion look. Did you style it yourself? What inspired it?
I had a few looks I was going between, but that won out! My mom and I found those pieces while shopping on Melrose. I was inspired to do something different and luckily my good friend Olivia’s (creator of the Crystal Cult) mother, Callie Usey was able to do all of my tailoring. Of course, there was also a LOT of double stick tape involved! I wanted to feel futuristic and like I could pull out a bow and arrow at any moment. I also love Blake Lively’s style and was very inspired by a couple of looks I had seen from her in the past.
3. You have to skip town in a hurry and only have time to grab three items from your closet. What do you take?
Most likely, I’m already wearing a T-shirt, jeans, and engineer boots so I can grab a flannel, a dress to go out in, and a coat.
5. What is a must have look for any woman in Spring 2014?
Seriously awesome geometric prints!
6. Give your best fashion tip to girls who want to steal your style.
Have fun! Who cares about following the crowd or being “pretty” or “girly” all the time?! Dress for you and what makes you smile when you look in the mirror.
6) Who do you consider your style icons?
Brigitte Bardot, Cara DeLevigne, Blake Lively, Beyonce, and Andre 3000
