Twisted Silver at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night

Twisted Silver had the honor of being in being included in the Jewels and Pinstripes gift bag, created exclusively for the VIP Attendees at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night, the 18th annual gala fundraising event for Parkinson’s disease that was held on Saturday in Pheonix.  The event raised $9.1 million Saturday for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute, as well as other charities.

Debra Mitchell, founder and designer of Twisted Silver, said:

“Any time I’m invited by Jewels and Pinstripes, I know it’s going to be a top-notch event.  The best part was that this event was contributing to such noble cause.”

Attendees such as Reba McEntire, Miley Cyrus, Bo Derek, Martina McBride and Rita Wilson to name a few took home Twisted Silver’s XO choker, Lithe Long brass earrings and a gift certificate.

Carlos Miele RTW Spring 2012

Elie Saab showed us vivid yellows and blues in bold solids… then Carlos Miele brought the color trend into Brazilian brilliance.

What We Love

Swirling ocean blues, jungle greens and sunrise yellows and oranges inspired by Mother Nature’s wild finger painting.

Why We Love It

These color combos are feminine but strong, and undeniably outspoken.  Even if used as an accent handbag or scarf, how can it not brighten your day?

How to Twistify It

The South American flavor of swirling colors completely begs for a wrist-full of mixed metal bangles.  Our picks?  The 7 bangle and Brick bangle.

Carolina Herrera Spring 2012

We’re looking forward to fresh yellows and greens to bloom soon… and not just in the garden.  Gazing back on Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 runway, these looks have us dreamin’ of breezy sunshine.

 

What We Love

Herrera chose delicate and floaty chiffon emboldened by thin blocks of black geometrics.  As seen all over the spring runways, romantic knee-length and maxi length is so IT.

Why We Love It

All the fluttering delicate fabric could have easily been a girly saccharine overdose.  But enter the black lines, and ya got a perfect mix of sweet sophistication.

How to Twist It

If you’re going to work this look, let the black lines on yellows and greens be enough contrast.  Compliment with delicate bracelets, like Pixie.

VH1’s Single Ladies LisaRaye Got Twisted

LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha Greene on VH1’s Single Ladies) was spotted looking stunning on the set wearing Twisted Silver’s Motif earrings and Stage bracelet.

LisaRaye was introduced to Twisted through her stylist, Okera Banks, one of Hollywood’s leading stylists and costume designers.  With clients that include Garcelle Beauvais, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, Robin Givens as well as the cast of Single Ladies, Okera is a Twisted Silver believer through-and-through.

She told Twisted Silver designer, Debra Mitchell, that she’s been looking for a jewelry line that defines her and her career.  She believes that Twisted is IT and said:

 “Twisted Silver is a breath of fresh air!  I truly love every piece.”

Watch for Twisted Silver on episodes #5 and #6 when season two of Single Ladies returns to VH1 in May.

Elie Saab Spring 2012

You simply won’t be able to avoid vibrant yellow and blue in the warm seasons.  Embrace it!

 

 

What We Love

The intense jewel yellow and blue solids balanced with prim 1960’s lady-like designs prove that one element (in this case color) can make a statement.

Why We Love It

Solids are a 180 degree diversion from the crazy mixed print trend, so this look (oddly enough!) comes off as …  rebellious.  Either smooth pencil lines or swingy pleats remind us of sauntering through an airport ala ABC’s hit series Pan Am or maybe sashaying into Sterling Cooper advertising agency from AMC’s Mad Men.

How to Twistify It

You could take this look two ways with Twisted Silver: 1) Continue the vintage demure look with pieces like the Creekwalk bracelet or 2) Play up some contrast with an edgier pieces like the Attitude bracelet.

 

Mary Birdsong Serves Up Twisted Silver

Mary Birdsong (George Clooney’s co-star in the Academy Award Winning film, The Descendants) met Twisted Silver’s designer, Debra Mitchell, just before Oscar night.  Her vintage vibe is a natural fit for Twisted, so it was no surprise to see her response to it.  “Wow, what amazing stuff… Twisted Silver is distinctive, feminine, AND strong.”

She fell hard for Wilma bracelet, and when Debra asked her for a picture on Oscar Eve,  Mary graciously whipped up this fun photo shoot as a personal thank-you.  Mary may not know how to cook, but she does know how to serve up her vintage style… with a side of humor!

Watch for Mary as one of the three furies in the sequel to The Lightning Thief in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters coming to theaters in 2013.

True Blood’s Carolyn Hennesy Waxes Poetic Over Twisted

Carolyn Hennesy, the newest cast member to the 5th season of HBO’s True Blood and best-selling ‘tween fiction author of the Pandora series, proved to be as equally gracious as she is talented when she took the time to write Twisted Silver a thank you poem.

Carolyn and Twisted Silver’s designer, Debra Mitchell, continually cross paths and share mutual admiration — most recently at Kathy Duliakas’ 4th Annual Celebrity Oscar® Suite & Party.  Debra helped style Carolyn for her True Blood character (a Texas vampire with “hair high enough to interfere with air traffic”) and sent her a care package to take to wardrobe.

Immediately upon receiving the jewelry, Carolyn whipped up this playful bit of gratitude:

‘Twas the night before True Blood,
the promo to shoot.
The closet was empty,
not even a boot…

…that wasn’t “last season,”

and therefore not right,
to show off this vampire 
in just the right light.

I’ll go naked, I thought,
My interview matters!
The important thing, really
is a smart head that chatters.

It’s “True Blood,” I knew,
and they won’t give a heck.
But I cannot be filmed,
with bare arms and a neck!

I must set off my words
with just the right bling.
And, ironically, silver
will give the right “sting.”

Then what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but enough Twisted Silver to last the whole year!

I’ll sparkle, I’ll sizzle!
The right tone for the show.
(I’ll try to wear EVERYTHING…
just so’s ya know!)

You shall hear me exclaim
as the scene fades to black,
“But wait! There’s more Twisted
draped down my back!”

I thank all you lovelies;
your gifts are a dream.
Merry Christmas in March!
You make my life gleam!

Debra’s reaction to the poem?

“I am floored by her graciousness!  To take the time and love to write this? Carolyn’s a dream.”

True Blood fans, watch for Carolyn Hennesy wearing Twisted in Season 5 (premiering in June) as Authority Council member Rosalyn Harris.

Pandora fans, Book 5 Pandora Gets Angry is in bookstores now.  Watch for Book 6 in June.
