The lovely Mitria from Fashion Group International sent me some photos from last week’s Rising Star Awards luncheon. Naturally, I struck my trademark pose for my official photo.

Speaking of my pose, I’ll give you till 12:01 a.m. ET, February 3, to vote for your favorite WendyB pose here. Then I’ll declare the winner.

Here’s one more FGI photo with a good look at my finalist plaque. This one was taken after I got to select my corsage.

There were flowers of all shapes, sizes and colors to choose from. I’m so glad my mother, BarbaraB, was there! I was going to pick the most discreet flower I could find until BarbaraB wisely said, “Take the biggest one.” Sheesh! What was I thinking? Always go for the bold.

  1. Hi nice to meet you. You look amazing in that dress and I love your haircut. Yes the final comment cracks me up – you’re right bold is always best! (And the flower looks so cool) I am going to check out your jewellery now.

    also, I’m very sorry for the loss of your friend Charles Nolan, the fashion world has sadly lost another star

    Go bold indeed. Or as my aunt always says: “If you’re going to have one, have a big one”

  12. stacy says:

    You looked so fantastic that day! And how thoughtful of FGI to have a nice red backdrop for you to pose in front of in that lovely green dress.

  13. Sheila says:

    Yup, go big or go home, baby! I LOVE this green dress – such an awesome shade. Is it a little big on you on top? You look less boobalicious than usual (no offense, you know you’re smokin’). Your hair looks great!

      It’s definitely not the shape I usually wear. I did take it in quite extensively! It was huge. But I wanted to preserve the original shape, just as a little something different for me!

  14. Nickie Frye says:

    You look really great! And so skinny! I could never wear that color. You officially rule! Off to check out that necklace.

    Oh my god! That is such an absolutely beautiful marble sectile floor you are standing on.

    Wow that is a fantastic colour! You’re right to go for a nice big corsage when you’re wearing such a neon colour. You look awesome as is the new hair cut!
