CityBook’s Annual Holiday Issue Heralds Season with Bold Red Gowns and Eye-Popping Diamonds

THE HOLIDAY ISSUE of Houston CityBook hits this week, with a glam cover highlighting high fashion and stunning jewels.


“We always look forward to the holiday fashion shoot,” says Jeff Gremillion, editor-in-chief. “I’ve found that some magazines soft-pedal the yuletide energy in their year-end editions, but we choose to embrace it. Red dresses, a particular kind of festive glamour, and many shimmering, sparkling stocking stuffers from the city’s best jewelry shops!”

The cover shot, part of an expansive fashion feature shot by Steve Visneau and styled by Todd Ramos, finds Page Parkes model Charlotte Stevens in a ruffly red Dior gown and diamond earrings and a necklace from Deutsch Fine Jewelry, shot on location at the Memorial home of CityBook Executive PublisherLisa Holthouse. The magazine’s creative director, Patrick Magee, ran the shoot, and Edward Sanchez did the hair and makeup.

Exquisite baubles and statement pieces from many other Houston merchants are highlighted, include those from Bella Madre Jewelry, Cotton Club Collection, Elizabeth Anthony, Hublot, IW Marks Jewelers, Lesley Ann Jewels, Tenenbaum Jewelers, ValobraMaster Jewelers and Zadok Jewelers. The colorful Christmastime wardrobe feature gowns and dresses from Naeem Khan, Michael Kors, Versace, Chanel, Gucci and more; a handmade, pink crystalline cigar-box clutch by Creations by Niki Lassiter of Houston is also referenced.

The holiday issue, which also features a large multi-page gift guide and dozens of timely articles on the performing arts and dining around H-Town this holiday season, will begin appearing in mailboxes and on newsstands tomorrow.
