By Joy Kennelly I've recently had to accept the fact I am a perfectionist in certain things and as such, hold others to the same high standards I hold for myself. This isn't always the best for relationships, but now that I'm more aware of it I can work on it.
I'm a fashion blogger/personal publicist and have been attending LA Fashion Week since 2006 with, and without, celebrity clients. I've covered fashion shows in Atlanta, GA, Memphis, TN and Los Angeles, CA. Dream fashion experience is to cover fashion shows in Paris and Milan.

By Joy A. Kennelly Just in case you've been living under a rock, or will be sitting at home tonight wondering what to do besides watch the DNC, here's a little sneak peek at what is going on tonight all around the world - FASHION'S NIGHT OUT!
By Joy A. Kennelly Sorry for the delay in posting my Fashion's Night Out wrap-up and Kristi Yamaguchi interview. My hands have been hurting since I'd been working so much six days straight and needed to take a quick break from the computer to allow the nerves to calm down.
By Joy A. Kennelly Last night I attended five fashion events back-to-back: The Fashion Angels Emerging Designer Show hosted by the City of Los Angeles and the Department of Cultural Affairs, SKINGRAFT, a Meet & Greet with Julia Y Renata of Mexico City, and Louver by Louis Verdad. Whew!
By Joy A. Kennelly This past Monday I was invited to attend "THE" fashion event of the season, Jeffrey Fashion Cares, which, according to their research "appears financially, to be among the largest 3rd party events in all of Atlanta's philanthropic endeavors."
By Joy A. Kennelly Finally had time to review over 200 images I was sent featuring last week's amazing 19th Annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta Fundraiser benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Atlanta Affiliate and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF).
By Joy A. Kennelly Fashion Digital LA recently wrapped up at the Director's Guild of America and what a powerful conference it was. I met upper-level executives from Nordstrom, ShoeDazzle, Jurlique, numerous smaller fashion brands like Apliq and Ellie, and major tech companies like Google, Amazon and more.
By Joy A. Kennelly Recently I was privileged to cover Nordstrom's Nashville Symphony Fashion Fundraiser which featured five-time GRAMMY® winner Carrie Underwood and an exclusive presentation of Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2012 collection this past February. It was a beautiful evening start to finish.
By Joy A. Kennelly As my client, Int'l Celebrity/Wedding Stylist, Nicole Janowicz, styles tonight's AW2012 runway show for M I L A, the eponymous collection by Mila Hermanovski whose appearance on Project Runway (both as a finalist of season 7 and as a currently airing All-Star) and subsequent capsule collections have been shown to great reviews, I satisfied my longing to attend LA Fashion Week by watching the premiere of Fashion Star last night which was a blast.
By Joy A. Kennelly In light of the recent White House party crashers who are soooo desperate for attention (shamefully so), I thought I'd share some of the amazing parties I've been to over the past few months as a legitimately invited guest.
By Joy A. Kennelly Finally have time and energy to continue sharing my experience at the Rusnak Night of Luxury event with Fashion Designer, Kevan Hall. I mean it when I say Kevan Hall topped 'em all during LA Fashion Week.
By Joy A. Kennelly Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Farm Sanctuary's Fundraiser featuring Colbie Caillat and Kevin Nealon among others at the Peterson Auto Musuem. If you've never been to the musuem, here's a taste of what to expect when you first arrive.
By Joy A. Kennelly Now that the Hermosa Beach City Council Candidates I was stumping for, Jeff Duclos and Howard Fishman, are safely in office I can get back to more fun topics seeing as I've left you dangling on LA Fashion Week long enough.:) Finally, the long-awaited Passion Revealed review!
By Joy A. Kennelly Sorry for the delay in writing this wrap-up of last Friday's Passion Revealed event. I think I've been fighting something because I've just been exhausted after my day job which totally isn't like me. Feeling under the weather makes me cranky which is why I'm glad I'm feeling better.
By Joy A. Kennelly Let's see, where we last left off we all were taking our seats for the Passion Revealed LA Fashion Week shows at the Vibiana if I remember correctly. Now I have to say, it was very hard to hear anything the announcer had to say and apologize if I don't mention everyone who was involved.
By Joy A. Kennelly This past weekend was so packed with fun activities it's taken awhile to compile pix and information to share with you. John Mayer is amazing in concert fyi.:) So! Without further ado... (All Photos Courtesy Photographer, Angelique Chacon.)
By Joy A. Kennelly Recently, I was approached by an Atlanta-based online designer handbag business called Bella Bag to attend their new bricks-n-mortar retail store launch happening here in Atlanta. I've never quite understood the lure of a designer handbag and took advantage of the opportunity to interview the founder, Cassandra Connors, with very interesting results.
By Joy A. Kennelly THE SCHOOL OF STYLE Although I'm not a stylist, I've represented a few, dressed customers when I worked in retail, have assisted stylists who styled my clients for their red carpet appearances, and assisted with pulling clothes for fashion news segments when representing the Beverly Center, years ago.
