Mar 2, 2010 By Amy

Our New York Fashion Week contest was such ahit but there could only be one online winner andthat was thelovely Adara! Her energy radiated throughout her fashion adventures from thePrabal Gurung runway show tomeeting her inspiration Zoe Saldana. MyFDB got Adara ready fortheday’s events byhooking her up with renowned stylist Blair, who helped her put together anA-list look. She was then whisked toRicardo Rojas Studio for some major hair andmakeup amazingness!

Thebeautiful Adara was sweet enough toshare her personal experience with us andofcourse we had topass it along toall ofour readers:

“Prabal’s show was so fun, it was myfirst fashion show ever! His clothes are absolutely beautiful andwearable. Myfavorites were this cream strapless dress with ostrich feather detail andablack andred, one shouldered dress with this incredible pleating along thebust. It’s amazing how much he’s done injust ayear orso, andyou could tell how anticipated his collection was. There were so many buyers there andAnna Wintour herself came towatch, which is pretty exciting.”

“Meeting Zoe was incredible! I’m not really thetype ofperson tofreak out over celebrities, but Ihave admired her andher career since Iwas 12, so tomeet her inperson was totally surreal. We drove over toher hotel around 8 andIwas shaking thewhole time. Myfriend Ezra was with me andhe kept talking but Ididn’t hear half ofwhat he was saying. Kevin, Ezra andIwaited inthelobby forher tocome down andIwas so nervous andexcited. Zoe was thenicest person, everything Iexpected her tobe andmore. She has so much personality andis so bouncy andexcited. When she talked about Prabal you could tell how proud ofhim she was, aswell asKeith (who was also so nice) [MyFDB's CEO] andhow well MyFDB is doing. She said that when he started it was just him andtwo computers inthebasement andnow here he was atfashion week having this huge launch. Thething that Iwill hold closest tome is apiece ofadvice Zoe gave me asayoung actor-model, andthat was totrust myself andmake conscious choices about thekind ofwork Iwant todo, even if it means turning things down. She was so fun andsweet, Iwish she could just take me with her wherever she went.”

Toget asense oftheexcitement here’s ashort video ofAdara meeting Zoe shot byher friend Ezra.

“Probably themost pleasant surprise was how awesome Kevin Mills, theCOO ofMyFDB, is. Iknow how busy he was getting everything ready forthelaunch that day but he spent so much time with us. We ended up having some pretty amazing conversations about thebusiness andfollowing your passions andZoe ofcourse: ) Inever once felt like Iwas being pitched to, we were just talking andlaughing like normal people. That is so rare inthis industry, andIthink it really says alot about thecompany.”

“Thank you so much MyFDB, Ican’t even properly explain how much this day meant tome. Everyone should keep both eyes onthis company. Its made up ofsome truly genuine people andIcan only see it doing bigger andbetter things inthefuture!”

Awe!! Thank YOU Adara andwe wish you thebest inyour future endeavors! Don’t feel bad if you didn’t win because new contests will be announced soon. Zoe can’t be theprize every time, but we will definitely have some treats coming up!
