During the event, thousands of guests enjoy two full days of activities benefitting charities working to empower kids through advanced education, health and wellness. The MJ&M two-day event will kick off on Thursday, April 12, with a gala and concert hosted at ACL Live at the Moody Theater.
I was so was so excited to be invited to the MJ&M Fashion Show and luncheon by the incredible artist Kelly Brynteson of Kelly J Studios who donated a beautiful painting for the event that was actually inspired by the ALICE + OLIVIA Mable floral-print dress I chose to wear to the event. Tip: My dress just went on sale HERE. One of my absolute favorite fashion designers, Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia, was there and showcased her latest collection at the exclusive MJ&M Fashion Show and luncheon.
“We are thrilled to feature Alice + Olivia at this year’s Fashion Show,” said Camila Alves McConaughey. “It’s a brand that shines a light on self-expression with a touch of sophisticated flair. I foresee a colorful runway ahead.”
There were so many stand out pieces from the collection, one of the most striking was THIS garden motif print that came on Ms.McConaughey, Camila Alves‘ ruffled halter neck dress. It fell beautifully off the shoulders. Swoon!
