Our style speculation into the fashion passions of Actress Chrystee Pharris is over! The star of the upcoming flick The takeover sat down with Wild Curves in an exclusive interview about why she is so in love with our own French brand Les Fees Du Vent (translated: “fairies of the wind”)! If you don’t already know, this parisian couture was born in 2009 with the vision of a female designer that wanted to make fairy tale magic come alive through her textile creations! An award winning stylist, Cecile Farkas Moritel produces 10 flirtatious and poetic motifs for each season with only such materials as chiffon, cotton, and silk. All of Cecile’s concepts come from favorite writers and their novels as well as famous places. Leo Tolstoy and his Anna Karenina, renowned boudoir and lingerie designer Chantal Thomass, the Notre Dame Cathedral, just to name a few, have all been used as inspiration for the many provocative pieces of the acclaimed designer behind the bewitching style brand: Les Fees Du Vent!
Q: How did you discover LFDV?
A: I flew to Germany back in 2009 to do an autograph signing for Scrubs and then flew to Paris to attend Who’s Next Paris Porte De Versailles. There were many designers, but when I passed the LFDV booth, it really struck my eye. I remember thinking, ‘Wow! I have never seen anything like it! I have to have it on my body for my Red Carpet events!’
Q: What do you love about this designer?
A: It’s unconventional, unique, and the detail in the stitching is amazing. I love that the designer takes the time to hand-design each piece. The effort that it takes to design each item and the passion just makes it so brilliant. The colors and the vibrance make me happy to wear it. I feel happy because I always get complemented on my outfits wherever I go!
Q: What do you think sets LFDV apart from other brands?
A: I think in addition to its creative design, this brand is unique because it’s a style that’s for everyone. All people can wear LFDV no matter their age or shape. In my family there are big women and they all look beautiful in LFDV. You have to give them props for that. They are not just sewing for petites or for plus size, but for all sizes. It’s important that we celebrate women of all ages, shapes and sizes and this brand, unlike many others, does this.
Q: Do you have a favorite item made by LFDV?
A: All their summer and winter outfits and coats. Their jewelry and purses are slamming. Makes you think twice about buying other designer brands. They match their bags and jewelry with the details on the outfits, so it’s a a complete dressing match. I love their purses and the best part it’s not crazy expensive. Love their stuff! Not just the dresses, but the bags and jewelry are definitely a must have.
Q: Do you find it challenging to find unique styles in the USA?
A: Yes, although we have tons of stores and designers in this country, it’s hard to find clothes that are unique unless it’s designer and expensive, which for me makes it difficult. Once I wear it on the red carpet, you can’t wear it again without the tabloids talking bad about you. This is another reason why I love LFDV because I can wear it not only on the Red Carpet, but in everyday life and feel just as glamorous and beautiful as though I was going to a celebrity event.
Q: Do you ever shop in any stores here in the USA?
A: Yes, sometimes I’ll shop at Guess By Marciano, BeBe, BCBG. But, I have not been shopping in the last two years because I have been wearing LFDV! I am excited because I have a new shipment coming soon!

Here is something to get excited about – wildcurves.com, your most beloved curvy blog is ripening its fashion fruit and flourishing into a more refined style central with the delicious addition of our online sexy shop! We all know how hard it is to scamper through numerous stores looking for that one outfit, skirt, dress, pant or even top that will sit just right on our bodacious bodies, fit right into our friendly gatherings, and of course hit our wallets without ripping it at the seams. Forget about all those painful unpleasantries – you can now rely on wildcurves.com to do all of the fashion leg work for you! We will continue to bring our blog to you so that you will always be on the forefront of curvy fashion from Europe, but you will now have the added satisfaction of stocking up on your favorite styles straight from us.
Wild curvy women, wait no longer, here is what you want to hear and here is how you can get it. I know the outdoor temperatures still make us sweat, but here is something else you will get hot about – Autumn colors and feels. The new fashion season is rolling out the runway carpet with colors such as cherry reds, ocean blues, chocolate browns, smoky grays (I am referring to the color, not the smoking hot character Christian Grey), and of course the classics – reds and blacks! As for the touchy feely department, the Fall season is bringing smooth leather-like textures to our skirts, shirts and even leggings. Both form-fitted and free-flowing pants are seen walking down the runway, but no worries – French fashioners know how to keep our curvy shapes looking sexy in all attires. Parisian couturier Giani Forte, a favorite of mine – complementing figures 12-24+, uses exquisite colors in just the right places with unique designs to allow us to change everything from length of the hem to width of the waist in just a pinch of a button in pants and skirts alike.
Here’s a look at Giani Forte’s Fall collection. Oh and the best part, other than the curvy calibers 12-24+, you can grab (Webster’s Dictionary defines ‘grab’ as: get a hold of, capture, get one’s hands on, acquire) them here!
Set your alarms ladies to wildcurves.com and our Facebook page – the shopping start date will be revealed within the next few days!
