A day after Twitnight

Ohohohhhh what a night, what a looooooooooooong night. As you’ve probably read at our twitter page, there weren’t lot of surprises and most of the winners were very predictable and even nominated people were mostly the same as last year (btw I compared the lists). Maybe that’s why I had a little déjà vu feeling. But obviously LSFA (Latvijas Stila un Modes Balvas 2009) is not the event where expect surprises as our show business industry (including fashion) is tiny and it takes some time for newcomers to get approved and nominated. I was absolutely delighted when Triānas Parks received award as the most stylish group because they ARE.
Ok here are my comments to other winners and nominations:
Rihards Lepers as the most stylish actor. No surprise, as he’s lately pretty visible in the media and wearing SALT helps too :)
Rēzija Kalniņa as the most stylish actress. Hmm I don’t know – I never think of her as a stylish person, great actress - yes, stylish – no. And she confirmed that when accepting award – she said that she doesn’t have personal style, as actress every night she has different role and different style according to role. And what was that SockBox all about? Was I the only one who thought that mentioning one brand that much was well… not really appropriate?
Dj Ella as the most stylish female performer. I’m not sure about this; I think Amber has more unique and outstanding style and I absolutely loved her dress.
Intars Busulis as the most stylish male performer. Agree. And I’m pretty sure that next year Markus Riva will win this exact award.
Gundega Skudriņa as the most stylish female TV star – well, she just IS.
Māris Grigalis as the most stylish male TV star – hmmm I can’t decide, not sure how stylish he’s outside the screen but he definitely is charismatic person.
Concept store – Paviljons it is.
Cover – Pastaiga. As L’Officiel wasn’t nominated I think competition was not really strong.
Style pages – Pastaiga.
Female model – Anastasija Kondratjeva (Vacatio). Btw anybody knows why Ginta Lapiņa and Ieva Laguna weren’t nominated? Competition would be stronger then.
Male model – Mikus Lasmanis (Vacatio). CalvinKlein ad was a hit for sure :) but where were all the models from Dandy agency (nominated were only Vacatio guys)?
Fashion Newcomer – Alise Indriksone. I completely agree, I think she already has a place in Latvian fashion industry. Can’t wait for her next collection.
Fashion designer of 2009 – Katya Shehurina. Hurray, Hurray, Hurraaaaaay! Girl is happy and Katya deserves it for sure. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Ok let’s get back to the people – everybody had spent some (or quite a long) time glamming up in front of the mirrors – and overall result was, well, shiny (you know - polished shoes, lip glosses, jewelry etc. …). Shine like a superstar lalalaaaa… and here comes picture of Dj Ella :)

Ella told us that she’s soon releasing her new single, also soon going to dance music convention in USA and she’s still dancing with the stars…
We also met the outstanding ladies from Paviljons and Markus Riva & Māra,

President of Baltic Fashion Federation Elena Strahova,

the most stylish TV star – Gundega Skudriņa

  1. Thanks for the LIVE streaming from the event! :) Mājāspalicējiem (man) bija interesanti pavērot no malas :)

    Jāpiekrīt, ka nekādi dižie pārsteigumi uzvarētāju listē nebija un žēl, ka tikai 3 nominanti katrā kategorijā, man jau šķiet, ka LV ir vairāk stilīgu cilvēku katrā kategorijā. Tad arī intriga būtu lielāka.

  2. Paula, paldies par Tavu komentaru! Isteniba nav aizlegts ierosinat ari savas kandidaturas, lai butu vairak cilveku. Tacu ir ari organizatoriska problema- ir loti gruti savakt visus kopa viena diena. Piemeram labakas modeles vispar nebijat klat, jo bija arzemes. Alise Indriksones ari nebija. Starpcitu, pec twitter spriezot Saulites-Zandares kundze bija Riga, bet nezkapec neatnaca, a zel, jo Pastaiga sanema 2 balvas. Es Rakstisu postu sovakar, lai papildinat Girl. Es apdirsisu cilvekus kuri neieviero dress code. Kas ir ta par modi Latvija neievierot dresscode....

  7. -Žēl ka nebija nominēta Pērle kā veikala koncepts (Una Meistare esot ieteikusi, bet esot bijis jau par vēlu).
    -Vispār ir 10 nominācijas, no kurām otrajā kārtā paliek 3 nominanti.
    -Rēzija fanātisms ar SockBox nav nekāds pārsteigums, agrāk tieši tajā vietā bija bārs Rupucis, kur visi Dailes teātra aktieri vienkārši dzīvoja. Tagad bāra vietā ir zeķu veikals :) veikala īpašniece laikam ir dāma ar gaumi, ko vakar varēja redzēt Rēzijas izskatā - tiešām pārsteidzoši labi, taču skatuves uzruna bija vienkārši nebaudāma. Mūzikai un teātrim ir savas balvas pasniegšanas ceremonijas, tādēļ aktieri un mūziķi šo pasākumu īpaši nopietni neņem, taču modes industrijā šis ir vienīgais, kur pagaidām izpelnīties atzinību!

  8. sasmējos par Tavu komentāru - un iztēlojos, kā tagad aktieri bāra vietā iet uz zeķu veikalu "izklaidēties" :))

    bet runājot par nominācijām, jāsaka, ka man visinteresantākās šķita tieši pēdējās 6 - par koncepta veikalu, žurnāliem, topmodeļiem un dizaineriem, jo šeit tika vērtēts reālu personu DARBS.

    Savukārt vērtējot slavenības, īpaši, dziedatājus, būtu jāņem vērā, ka lielākajā daļā gadījumu "aiz viņiem" tomēr strādā, kāds stilists - līdz ar to stilīgs dziedātajs ir kāda stilista DARBA rezultāts.

  9. patika Altmanes runa par stilīgumu pasākumos, un aiziešanu mājās un iekāpšanu savās treniņbiksēs... :D
