NEW YORK, Dec 2, 2009 / — Trang Huyen (Behind the Seams) is the winner of America’s Most Stylish Blogger, the five-week style contest hosted by Bluefly, the leading online luxury fashion retailer. Hailing from Pensacola, Florida, the fashion blogger beat out seven talented competitors from New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia, Dallas and Lawrence, Kansas in five head to head fashion challenges.
Handpicked to compete from over a hundred fashion bloggers across the nation, Trang was the clear frontrunner. Winning four out of the five challenges, America voted her thousands of points ahead of her fellow contestants. An A-list roster of guest judges who appeared in weekly video recaps—including designers Adam Lippes, Natalie Chanin, Nicole Miller, Amy Smilovic of Tibi, and fashion publicist, Kelly Cutrone—emphatically approved her looks as well.
The America’s Most Stylish Blogger contest aimed to unite and galvanize the online fashion blogging community by giving contestants a platform to express their style. Trang has proved that it’s right here in cyberspace as more and more people go online for fashion cues and news.
The competition tested the bloggers on their ability to create a complete head-to-toe look. Each week, a video recap of the challenge featured celebrity style experts’ breakdown of the bloggers’ style choices. However, it was up to fashionistas across the country to choose the winning look. Trang was crowned America’s Most Stylish Blogger, with the most cumulative votes at the end of the five weeks.
Trang Huyen, Pensacola-raised blogger has been in love with fashion ever since she was a little girl. Growing up her family was very poor and it was a definite struggle to afford anything lavish. Fortunately, her mom was a very talented seamstress that designed and made many of Trang’s clothes.
Trips to the local fabric stores exposed and heightened Trang’s knowledge of different fabric patterns and textures. From that point on, her mother’s creative artistry has led and inspired Trang’s genuine interest in fashion.
