The Starlet

 
 

By day Céleste is a stylist, designer, & business woman — performing is just one of the countless ways in which she express herself. She is a classically trained ballet dancer with a background also in ballroom, & has been professionally pursuing modeling for over 8 years. A sewing needle & a hammer were placed in her hands at a young age, so much of what she visually presents is couture created by herself. With a deep love of jazz, vintage fashion, & history, she draws much of her inspiration.



She’ll make you exclaim “Oh my stars!”
