When you think of the U.S.’s most fashion-forward cities, New York City and Los Angeles effortlessly spring to mind, from the street styles of SoHo to Hollywood’s red carpet glamour. But in between these two sartorial hot spots are equally energetic metropolises, each emerging with its own unique style that reflects its way of life.

The Girl Who Dressed Like Her Hotel…Take Two

the girl who dressed like her hotel

We love when women own their moment. It’s our company tagline, it’s what fuels us as a team, it’s why we care so much about finding women the perfect confidence-boosting dress. So when we heard about “the girl who dressed like her hotel,” our first thought was, “wow, she is our kind of girl.” She took a potentially awkward situation and completely owned it, recognizing the humor and embracing it. With close to 6 million views on Imgur now, she has become a viral sensation.

To kick off New York City’s Fashion Week, the Marriott Autograph Collection invited us to dress the woman herself – Lauren Clark – for the Algonquin Hotel. Below is a recap of what it was like to help Lauren own her moment on a whole new (chic) level.

Designated a New York City Historic Landmark in 1987, the Algonquin was home to the legendary Round Table, where such literary talents as writer Dorothy Parker and The New Yorker’s Harold Ross built their careers. It was also the first hotel to allow women to travel alone. Our task was to style Lauren for the elegant and classic Barrymore suite.

With some help from the amazing GlamSquad stylists, Lauren was soon ready to start posing.

We chose the Hedy dress for Lauren because it cues glamour and sophistication, and we knew its built-in shapewear secret would give her an extra confidence boost.

We’re grateful to join for part two of Lauren’s fashion story because for us, her viral photo is about more than styling serendipity. It’s about a woman who knows how to own her moment.

Special thanks to the Marriott Autograph Collection and the Algonquin Hotel for including us in this shoot. All photographs were taken by Chris Spiegel from Blur Revision Media Design.

(Y)our Year-In-Review

It’s time to raise a glass and reflect on 2014. Instead of counting the cups of coffee that our team has gone through (rough estimate: 1,500+), we are counting the moments we’ve shared with our amazing Project Gravitas community.

Cheers to the inspiring women who own their moment.  Cheers to the women who believe in doing good and looking fabulous. Whether you own a piece of Gravitas already, follow us on social media, or are just discovering the brand, cheers to you.

And a special toast to all of the women who have shared with us how they’ve owned their moment this year. Here are some of our favorites:
