Social Styles: Spring Fever and Haute Style

Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held



In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO's, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist's eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!


Nigel Barker, Celebrity Fashion photographer and host of The Face divulged his view on Miami Fashion: "Fashion is meant to be worn. Miami has the weather to wear fashion and Miami women have the guts to wear the clothes. The women in Miami actually wear the clothes that you see on the runways!”

Stylist Elysze Held was on the scene to find it’s all about color this spring at the major happening this month: Miami Art Museum reception with Carolina Herrera, Arsht Center Spring Gala with Harry Connick Jr., Big Brothers Big Sisters Miracle Makers Luncheon, Gentlemen’s Night Out with Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation, Debut of ‘In the Now’ at Village of Merrick Park, The Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame gala, Miami City Ballet Luncheon honoring iconic dancer Merrill Ashley and the TYPOE /Deltoro shoe event for the Webster.
