Dr. Harriet Davis of Charlotte, who’s among 10 female finalists in PETA’s national “Sexiest Vegan Next Door” contest. She’s 43 and a family and sports medicine physician, competition bikini model and blogger (Vegan Bikini Doc – and don’t miss the photo of her in leatherlike Forever 21, on a Kawasaki with the Charlotte skyline). She said Wednesday “I’m so excited to be a finalist ... Winning (would help me) dispel the many myths about being vegan.” People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will count online votes (that part ends May 1, so get your votes in), “enthusiasm for winning” (how much they did on social media), “enthusiasm for vegan living” (from a questionnaire) and PETA’s own assessment of their “physical attractiveness.”
Isabella Rose Taylor, a 14-year-old fashion designer from Texas whose stuff shows up in Charlotte’ SouthPark Nordstrom’s May 1. A sewing camp at age 8 got the Austin native started. Her parents, both in the medical field, found her a high-powered mentor in Liza Deyrmenjian, according to a Fast Company story, and a few stops later (you know: New York Fashion Week, the “Today” show), her clothing is in rotation. Running $26-$89, it includes the floral crop top ($40) and plaid skirt ($40), and sheath dress (in a print made from one of her paintings) with back fringe ($89). Yes, that’s her modeling.
L.T. Brady’s hilarious Kickstarter page for the Style Saver, “the world’s best shower cap.” You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! as you watch the video of a woman wrestling her blonde, perfectly blown-out hair into shower caps of old before finding the possibly revolutionary (we here at CLT_Style don’t pretend to know the complete history of shower caps) Style Saver. You may know Charlottean Brady from her Pistol Polish line. With about a month to go, Brady’s hit roughly four times her goal of $1,500 – could it be because she used dating-app Tinder-speak to describe the product: “Miss Shower Cap swiped right on Mr. Scuba Suit”?
