A Designer to Love; Michael Costello


Michael Costella was first introduced to me via Lilly Ghalichi from the Shahs of Sunset.  She wore his beautiful gowns to almost every function she attended during and well after taping of the show and then I saw his creations again on Beyonce’ at the Grammy’s. (pictured below) It seems this young man is slowly but surely taking over red carpets all over and everyone is definitely loving him! 


Above is one of the four custom made Costello gowns made for Lilly for her Persian Prom themed 30th birthday party.

For those who do not know or may not remember Michael Costello was a contestant on Project Runway’s Season 8 and was a finalist on the shows Allstar season, he clearly wasn’t just a fan favorite.  Costello has dressed more than just these 2 fabulous ladies, his list of cliental includes but isn’t limited to Celine Dion, Paris Hilton and many of the reality TV “real housewives”.  One of his biggest accomplishments? other than having Beyonce’ wear his gown to the Grammy’s, this self taught designer was featured in VOGUE, at age 14 he created a couture collected which earned him an article in Vogue titled “LA’s Hidden Talent” 

Below are some gowns I simply LOVE!

HEY LOVES – I’M DANIELLE or DANIE – THE LIFE LOVING GIRL BEHIND XOXODANIELLEMONE! I’m currently 28 years old and I live in Orlando, FL with my husband Jeff + our fur baby Bleu (like the cheese), a Blue Nose Pitbull who you can follow on Instagram at @greeneyedbleu. I share our life together and my style here on XOXODanielleMone and on Instagram. I definitely love the colors pink, orange and yellow and all things style but I also love: a great cocktail, home decor, fresh flowers, and spending time with my family (hey mom!).
