Josh Flagg is our favorite celebrity realtor! He stars on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing where he sells high-end real estate, published two books, and recently created an amazing new app that showcases the homes of Hollywood celebrities. His real estate resume reads more like a hall of fame entry, having participated in four record sales within the first four years of his career. Josh also has a fantastic travel blog where he shares tips and adventures from places he visited (more than 50 countries so far). We caught up with the accomplished reality TV star to learn about his exciting projects and personal style tips.
MM: You began your career right out of high school and in no time logged record sales, including the highest sale in the history of Brentwood Park. Is there one particular sale or client you’ve worked with that stands out in your mind as most memorable?
JF: My favorite sale was that of a home in Brentwood Park. A “Lord” from England called up and said he wanted to buy a home for $15 million and his funds were in an offshore account in Barbados. Everything sounded hokey. But not only did I end up selling him a fifteen million dollar house, I sold him the house and then re-sold it for him for $30 million within two months!
Summer has come and gone, as have all those neon nail lacquers. Now we’re switching up our manis with these fall nail trends — some obvious, like deep reds, and others not so much, like pearly white. (We’ve always thought wearing white after Labor Day was a fashion faux-pas that just had to be broken.)
Rich jewel tones were all over the fall runways, such as at Karen Walker’s show where models nails were polished with CND Midnight Sapphire ($9, Cnd.com). Other jewel tones we’re loving: Estée Lauder Black Turquoise ($20, Saksfifthavenue.com), MAC Gadabout Girl ($16, Maccosmetics.com), and Essie Stylenomics ($8, Essie.com).
Although light lacquers are typically associated with spring, pale nudes and even white are getting some play this fall. Use these simple, chic colors to accompany fall’s bolder trends, such as a dark lip or cat-eye. Shades we recommend: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls ($7.25, opi.com), Chanel Frenzy ($26, Chanel.com) and Nails Inc. Jermyn Street ($9.50, Sephora.com).
Gold and silver were two of the hottest colors this summer, thanks to the Olympics, and they aren’t going anywhere. If you’re into a bold mani, but like us, you don’t have the ambidexterity to tackle nail art, metallics are a smart option. Add these to your collection: Tom Ford Dominatrix ($30, Neimanmarcus.com), Butter London Shag ($14, Butterlondon.com), and Sonia Kashuk Dime A Dozen ($4.99, Target.com)
The French manicure has gone through so many transformations in recent years. This season, try a neutral base and dark tip, like the mani models wore at Donna Karan’s fall runway show. More combinations we’re dying to try: Julep Otte ($14, Trinaturk.com) with CND Bloodline ($9, Cnd.com) and Deborah Lippmann Modern Love ($16, Lippmanncollection.com) with Zoya Diva Collection Song ($8, Zoya.com). And since gray is a huge color this season (not just because of Fifty Shades of Grey), you have to try gray on gray. We love China Glaze on Safari Elephant Walk ($5.99, Enailsupply.com) as the base and Nars Storm Bird ($18, Sephora.com) as the tips. Understated and classy.
Which trend is your favorite?
Now that it’s officially the end of summer, we need to start putting away all our swim suits, caftans and flip-flops. September is always a tricky month when it comes to dressing…the weather is still warm but you don’t want to walk around sporting your summer look. To make life easier, we put together some of the best transitional dressing must-haves for Fall:
Tailored Blazer by Adam, $89
Adam is known for his fabulous basics and a tailored boyfriend blazer like this one is the perfect Fall staple! The longer cut looks great with skinny jeans, leggings or shift dresses. It has a nice fit and you will never tire of the classic style. It’s hard to believe you can get this kind of quality for the price. I just purchased this blazer myself and will surely live in it. Check out my OpenSky video for more details!
Haute Hippie Draped Jersey Dress, $375
This chic jersey dress from Haute Hippie is right on trend for Fall with the burgundy color and wrap draping. It is universally flattering on all figures too! Pair with a blazer for work and ditch it at night for cocktails. A great replacement for your LWD.
It may be the night of film but the real winners (and losers) are chosen on the red carpet. Here’s a list of the best and worst looks of the night.
Best: Jessica Chastain
The Best Supporting Actress nominee strove away from her simple red carpet looks and donned a black and gold Alexander McQueen gown. We love the contrast between the tight bustier and flowing skirt. She completed her look with loose curls and Harry Winston yellow diamond jewels worth $2 million!
Best: Emma Stone
Emma proved just how smart she is. She chose a gown that closely resembled Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga from the 2008 Oscars. It was a hit then and it is a hit now. She paired the scarlet Giambattista Valli dress with Louis Vuitton rubies.
Are you protecting your eyes this summer with fashionable shades? Summer is finally here so don’t leave home without your favorite pair of chic sunglasses! Today is National Sunglasses Day and PageDaily is here to the rescue to make sure you have that go-to, can’t-leave-the-house-without -‘em, pair of shades that will protect your eyes and keep you looking fabulous.
It is super important to protect your eye area from the harmful UV rays to keep you looking youthful. According to dermatologists, the skin around your eyes is most often the first place to show deep wrinkles due to squinting, so you definitely want to keep your sunglasses on whenever you’re out!
My all-time favorite pair of sunglasses is the Ray-Ban Aviators. These aviators are perfect for all different face shapes, which means they will look great on anyone! The lenses are polarized green and the frame is gold, which really makes them pop. This pair of Ray-Ban aviators is truly a great accessory for any look you’re going for this summer. I also like the silver frames depending on what you are wearing.
Check out a few other favorite picks for this summer!
When it comes to perfume, I’ve never been a girl to stick to one scent for more than a couple of weeks. That’s about to change. Recently, I rediscovered a bottle of Tom Ford’s White Patchouli Eau de Parfum in the back of my medicine cabinet, and I’m obsessed. When I told my mother that I had fallen in love with a patchouli-based perfume, she immediately started reminiscing about the 60s. But Tom Ford’s floral-infused woodsy fragrance is not just for hippies anymore with floral notes like jasmine, rose, and coriander added to the mix. The minimalistic white and gold bottle is as elegant as the scent itself and has taken up permanent residence on my bathroom countertop. Sleek, sexy, with a touch of Bohemia? Tom Ford, you have made a fragrance monogamist out of me.—Kate Bryan
