Who knew aprons could be so utterly gorgeous?? With her collection of high end aprons, event planner extraordinare Elizabeth Scokin has taken culinary chic to a whole new level. With Haute Hostess Aprons, the kitchen becomes center stage for a female who is sexy, sassy, and oh-so fabulous. It's available in three different styles: the ruffled Glam It Up (my personal favorite and pictured at left), the chic Chanel-inspired Glam It Up Lux and the super girlie Give Me Sugar (modeled by Elizabeth below).

I was lucky enough to speak with Elizabeth whose Southern belle charm is warmly contagious. Rather than protect against splattering grease and flying flour, her apron was created to be a chic accessory — the little black dress of the kitchen if you will — and the design is an exact replica of her grandmother's dated version.

Elizabeth believes everyone should have a special occasion apron that reminds them of past parties and she guarantees that guests will be delightfully surprised when you answer the door dressed in one of her aprons.

I'm not the only one who is a fan of the lush collection, according to Elizabeth, Giada De Laurentiis, Tory Burch, and Colin Cowie all have their own custom made versions.
