Venezuelan born Angel Sanchez is a designer who has some similarities to the late great Gianfranco Ferre. Both began their careers as architects and switched over to fashion design. Their architectural roots are present in their clean yet dramatic silhouettes. Mr. Ferre’s most memorable pieces were his stunning white dresses and blouses. As you can see, in the right hands a white dress or shirt can be a gorgeous wardrobe staple. Those who own classic Ferre pieces such as these, never give them up.
By contrast, Mr. Sanchez is known for his bridal and evening gowns. He has a legion of celebrity fans for his bridal and evening wear including Sandra Bullock, Gisele Bundchen, Salma Hayak and Beyonce. His bridal designs range from a simple destination bride dress for the woman who wants to take her vows barefoot in the sand to sumptuous designs like the Couture Wedding Gown Eva Longoria wore to take her vows in 2008. Although there are yards and yards of train in Eva’s gown, the lines remain architecturally sleek and un-fussy.
A great dress though, is not enough. The hair must absolutely complement the dress. Star hair stylist, Leonard Zagami created some unique silver headpieces backstage at the latest Angel Sanchez bridal show that were absolute perfection.

Below, a sneak peek of the perfectly synchronized hair Leonard created for the show. He used Moraccan Oil, a product that he and Anthony recommended after Anthony made me a pale silver blonde. I now use on a daily basis for its near miraculous abilities to transform my processed hair into hair worth running my fingers through.
