Talk about va-va-voom dressing. That would be Alex Blair when she stepped out in this Ema Savahl Couture number for Recipe for Success' Fashion Gene frolic at Tootsies.

"It's hand painted and needs to be on the body at least 20 minutes prior to going out," Alex explains "as the paint molds with your body temperature." Wowza!

A mother of two teenagers and member of the Recipe for Success board, she says, "I wore this particular dress to celebrate and compliment the evening's theme of Houston’s most stylish mothers. I love the fusion of colors and the intricate details of the design. After all, I am Brazilian and love colors!"

A native of Fortaleza, Brazil, Alex has a collection of Savahl designs, many of which she purchased at BB1 Classic in Uptown Park. She completed the outfit with a pair of Pelle Moda sandals from Julian Gold in Austin, diamond and gold David Yurman bracelets and a Longines watch. Her clutch was custom made in Brazil, the design created to match her bracelets.
