(page 1 of 11)

Each year, society and style watchers hit the party circuit and beyond to keep an eye out for those metro Detroiters who wear it well — whether it’s at a formal black-tie dinner or a semi-casual backyard fundraiser. Society writer and fashion maven Chuck Bennett asks this year’s picks to discuss their style.

Fashion style

Contemporary, elegant, high fashion. “I’ll wear anything from an edgy leather dress with cut-outs to an exquisite silk chiffon evening gown.”

Favorite shops

“I go to my favorite personal shopper, David Crain at Neiman Marcus. I also shop at Saks Fifth Avenue.”

Favorite designers

Armani, Versace, and Chanel

Fashion debut

“I grew up as an orphan in Korea. Fashion was nonexistent. When I was adopted and moved to America, my mother used to make my clothes. For me, that was heaven!”

Favorite outfit

“A contemporary black Versace business suit. It’s my go-to suit for big business deals. I feel good in it. It fits me perfectly and it makes me feel confident.”

Fashion hero

Princess Diana

Fashion advice

“You should always wear clothing that you feel comfortable wearing. Be careful of fads and trends. Keep it classic.”
