22 Jun

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

A week before first official day of summer approached, Andrea Rinaldi opened her private Potomac residence for Uber Chic Resort 2011 trunk show of Dar Be Dar. Hot swimsuits by Tala Raassi, Iranian American designer, were snatched left and right by stylish ladies, as if they were hot cakes. Well, obviously, to rock those revealing suits, you’d have to forget about cakes for a while and hit the gym! Speaking of food, the most hospitable hostess spoiled the guests with very healthy and yummy hors d’oeuvres, not to mention variable and unlimited bar! The show celebrated beginning of the summer (beach balls and chairs, cupcakes with umbrellas and multiple colorful candy around the house didn’t let to forget!), and of course,  beauty of the female body. Three gorgeous models continuously showcased variable swimsuits, spiced up by statement jewelry pieces, also presented for sale at the event. You couldn’t ask for better Thursday evening.

Enjoy the picture and don’t forget to visit whole gallery of  42.
