We teamed the latest fashions from Bloomingdale’s Beverly Center with high-end style at The Avenue Penthouses and Architectural Apartments for a luxurious fashion shoot in Hollywood. Our gorgeous model, Amanda Fields, shows off the hottest looks of the season, styled by Sara Stuhl and make-up by Sephora Pro Team Artist, Helen Phillips.

Look #1 – Active Chic

Amanda strikes a pose atop a large exercise ball, poolside at The Avenue in black scuba leggings by C & C California, a long white tank by James Perse and a crew neck pullover by Abbott + Main. The azure colored top really pops and complements her red hair and fair complexion. Silver lace-up wedge sneakers by Ash add a touch of pizazz and she’s ready to work out at the deluxe fitness center just a few yards away.

Look #2 – Business Savvy

Amanda looks the part of an entertainment business professional, just like the ones who live at The Avenue, checking in with the concierge for packages after a long day on set. Her savvy business look begins with a navy Belisa cropped skinny trouser by Theory, a creamy Eleanor button-back blouse by REISS and a short, collarless jacket by Aqua. Burgundy Victoria peep-toe pumps by Stuart Weitzman and a red Legacy leather tanner tote by Coach spice up her outfit. A bold agate necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane completes the look.

Look #3 – Casual/Day Dreaming

Sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills make a lovely backdrop for lounging at home over the weekend. Amanda relaxes in a comfortable violet-colored legging by Rag & Bone, topped with a Tullia geo lace blouse by Joie, and a peplum perforated leather jacket by Aqua. A leopard print scarf by Aqua really makes an impact, taking this look to the next level. Tulah leather booties by Coach top off this casual chic look. Kudos to stylist, Sara Stuhl, for putting together a unique combination of textures and colors, with lace, leather, leopard and stretch denim.

Look #4 – Casual/Standing

Upstairs in the Master Suite sitting area in a Penthouse residence, Amanda rocks this unique, mossy-green Inda quilted dress by Reiss and Scuba vintage leather jacket by Vince. This masculine and feminine look is one of our favorites, combining the soft and ultra feminine dress with an edgy leather jacket and necklace. The simple wishbone necklace by House of Harlow is a great accessory to the outfit, along with Gideon high heels by Michael Kors, and a Cupid satchel by Rebecca Minkoff. We also love how Amanda’s hair bun was easily divided into a “bow.”

Look #5 – Glam Night Out

The two-story floor-to-ceiling windows at The Avenue Penthouse frame Amanda, as she gets ready for a night on the town. Her glamorous look begins with tight leather leggings by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Albania lame bi-color top by Maje, and a sparkly Levela silver paillette jacket by Maje. She makes a bold statement with a bubble stone necklace by Aqua and sexy Nala Mary Jane platform pumps by Ivanka Trump. This striking look is the ultimate glamour statement. It’s a great way to wear shine on shine that isn’t over the top. A bright purple Enamel quilted flap bag by Ted Baker adds a pop of color and practically reflects all the shine and sparkle of the New Year.
