Maria MenounosÂ walked the carpet for the Emmys wearing anÂ eco-couture gown byÂ Oliver Tolentino.Â After meeting Oliver and seeing his incredible work, Maria knew she had to wear one of his designs to the awards ceremony. Â Maria loved three couture creations (2 eco and 1 crepe de chine)Â so muchÂ that the Extra host asked her viewers to vote online and help decideÂ which gownÂ she should wear. Â The viewersÂ picked aÂ Grecian blue strapless ecoÂ gown,Â featuring a sweetheart draped bodice with a raw-edged finish and draped skirt with a high slit. Â Hand-woven from the fiber of pineappleÂ leaves, Maria’s one-of-a-kind creation combines eco-friendly techniques with impeccable design.
Â Tolentino was excited to work with Maria on this project because of their joint interest in creating something that is both beautiful and promotes eco-friendly fashion. The designer explains, “I incorporate eco into some of my designs because of my concern for the environment and to promote the centuries-old skills and talents of the weavers in my native Philippines.”
Maria Menounos was seen in the Smythe Magenta Plaid Hunting JacketÂ Â and in a pair of dÃ¤v Equestrian solid black rain boots while filming an episode ofÂ ExtraÂ at the Grove in Los Angeles on January 23rd. It is so strange to see Extra filming daily at The Grove but I suppose it is a good way to get people involved on the show and also get more people to watch for the possibility of seeing themselves on television. Maria’s total ensemble is very cool in that it has a very English country hunting vibe with a decidedly modern twist. Her boots are equestrian in style, but they are made of rubber and keep you stylish in the rain. They are also lined in a felt that will keep your legs warm from the cold rainy days on January and February. The hunting jacket with its leather elbow patches hint at a very traditional hunting jacket however that is where the traditional reminders stop. The Smythe hunting jackets are modern cuts of flattering ladylike jackets that give you Hollywood good looks. Even English Royals love Smythe as seen on Kate Middleton in the past. The jackets are made to look like a custom tailored jacket without the custom made wait time and price tag. Now on sale for over 50% off. It is a great time to get your own Smythe jacket for the rest of the winter.
dÃ¤v Equestrian solid black rain bootsÂ are available for $95.
