We love a list, and a (Secret) Local List is even better. Today, DFW Style Daily’s exclusive series continues with more expert recommendations for local dining, shopping, and more.
Combining her media pedigree with a passion for her community, Gaby Natale is fast becoming an entertainment tour de force. As the leader of SuperLatina, Inc., she is now one of only a few women in the industry to boast her own television studio and own the rights to a six-time Emmy nominated program. Natale’s SuperLatina now airs across the U.S. through the VME Network.
This multi-talented mogul isn’t content with stateside supremacy, however. She’s now going global as the co-founder and president of AGANARmedia, where she caters to clients like L’Oreal Paris and Macy’s. Though Natale’s not spilling all of her secrets to success just yet, she indulged DFW Style Daily by divulging her secret local resources for staying cool and camera ready.
Foodie Favorite: “I love the recently opened La Conga,” notes Natale of her top dining destination. “It’s owned by designer Oscar Fierro, and they are the inventors of the ‘Pizza Pupusa.’ It’s just like nothing else out there.”
Go-To Boutique: This stylish expert confesses dual-ing interests when shopping locally. She explains, “Aftershock London has exquisite accessories. They boast the most beautiful beaded clutches, and I love that Dallas is home to their first U.S. store! For red carpet events, I turn to Lucy Dang. She creates dresses that hug you, or forgive you, in all the right places.”
Artistic Addiction: “I adore the Bishop Arts District,” Natale raves of her Big D creative connection. “You can find everything from a ‘chocolate salami’ by Dude, Sweet Chocolate, to unexpected sculptures and masterpieces by local creatives at the Artisan’s Collective.”
Best Buys: Crediting her stylist Leonardo D’Almagro for introducing her to an array of savvy resources, the media maven details, “I discovered my new designer addiction at the World Trade Center. Julian Hakes’ one-of-a-kind shoes look like they’re comic book-inspired. I also adore WAFU Artistry and photographer Jorge Rivas, who’ll make you look like a million even in jeans and a tee.”
I Heart Dallas: “I’m all about well-being, so my favorite local haunts are places that let you relax while promoting your mind-body connection,” Natale concludes with a smile. “Couples’ yoga at V12 Yoga and a trip to the Dallas Arboretum for quiet time and classic musical make for a perfect weekend among friends and family.”
