Designer Sondra Celli, best known for her popular “bling” creations featured on TLC’s hit series, “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” and “Bling It On”, recently debuted one of her crystal couture pieces from the red carpet at the American Country Awards held recently in Las Vegas. Sondra Celli custom designed a stunning dress for Great American Country host, Nan Kelley, to wear as she reported live from the red carpet. Kelley’s one-of-a-kind piece was a body-hugging, long sleeve V-neck dress made from a rich desert red satin, accented with sparkling Swarovski crystals.
“I got so many compliments all night long,” remarked Nan Kelley. “What a beautiful color! ‘Love that bling!’ I felt absolutely wonderful in it. A custom design is such a treat and I can’t thank Sondra Celli enough!”
It’s great to see Sondra Celli’s versatility as a designer through this dress. While we’ve gotten a sneak peak of it through her show “Bling it On”, this dress proves that even a little bling goes a long way. I give this dress two very blinged thumbs up.
Sondra Celli appeared on my radio show earlier this year to talk about her design career and her experience of working with the Ameican gypsies for the past several decades. You can listen to my exclusive interview with Sondra Celli in the broadcast below.
