At the top of this new year I was fortunate enough to be a guest at the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) launch brunch in Los Angeles. A dear friend and talented producer – JaSaun Buckner, hosted a select group at the kick-off of the much-anticipated network.
We got a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the OWN offices, which were decked in the brand colors of purple, green and orange and included inspirational affirmations in unexpected places. Messages like; “boldness has genius, power and MAGIC in it” and “whatever you can do or DREAM you can, begin it” are indicative of the positive atmosphere that the network has set out to produce in both content and environment. There’s already been a positive buzz about programs such as “Masterclass”, which takes an intimate look at the life and times of celebrities from Diane Sawyer to Jay Z.
and of course there was fashion! From beauty & style expert – Daisy Lewellyn‘s cotton candy turban, paired with chic neon toned knits to the intriguing pick-stitched and studded blazer worn by a random stylish security employee, the color palette and fashion was a great kick off to a delicious 2011!
