NYIAS 2013 - AutomotiveSTYLE

This year was my first time attending the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) representing myself...StyleMayvin and it felt really good to be among some of the most influential auto journalists as well as the biggest and the best in the automotive arena.  With so much to see, I was thankful for the 2 press days we had to enjoy the cars before the general public was allowed in and if you've ever seen how expansive NY's Jacob Javits Center is, you know exactly why I had no choice but to sport my favorite flats...both days.

Here are my top three favorites from the show and believe me, it was hard to choose!

#1 - My absolute favorite, most dreamiest vehicle EVER! The all NEW Range Rover Sport.  This reveal shut the entire show down to me...I mean really, what better color to "sport" than red? Find out more and take a moment to experience the NY reveal video at
