BAZAAR probes the snazzy pair on their secret style hacks and their 10 Style Commandments. Its a spectacle!
Style Icon of the Movies?

Shentel: Dionne from Clueless
You are Cinderella, what shoe did you drop at midnight?
Sereni: A Sereni & Shentel X Cipela custom shoe in gold glitter
Shentel: A pai silver glitter Sereni & Shentel X Cipela Ballerina.
The secret style hack of Sereni and Shentel?
Sereni: If you’re short like me, wear a top as a mini dress
and Shentel: Tailoring. Never under estimate the power of a great tailor to give your outfit the perfect fit.
#1 item top on your wish list?
Sereni: A SIA style wig
Shentel: A Japanese School Girl Uniform! I tried to buy one when I was last in Tokyo and got a big fat NO from the department store.
Most outrageous thing in your closet?
Sereni: A nude body suit with a 10 foot long train
Shentel: Everything. I’m a professional hoarder so my wardrobe is like a flash back in time. I think all my hipster jeans and crop tops from the early 90s are outrageous. WAY too much skin! What was I thinking?
Anecdote of a wardrobe malfunction?
Sereni: Just yesterday a strap on my dress broke and I used my daughter’s Sereni & Shentel bow clip to secure it and prevent me from flashing the whole world my bra!
Shentel: I once wore a dress to a function that literally came apart at the seams at pre-drinks. Sereni had to come to my rescue with her shawl. I sat the entire dinner then waited till the ballroom was empty before getting up and shuffling out.
and there’s more…
