With her stylist's eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!


The New World Symphony’s gala kicked off Oscar weekend with a spectacular evening inspired by Hollywood’s legendary director, Alfred Hitchcock - and SocialMiami fashion contributor Elysze Held was on hand to capture the social styles of the evening’s sophisticated crowd. Film noir was most definitely de rigueur, as suspense reigned supreme at the New World Center.
