Last night slews of super-social Chicagoans in every professional arena possible gathered in the private room at Spiaggia for the announcement of the Third Annual Top 10 Cheeky Chicks. Guests sipped fruity Effen drinks, noshed on petite bites and swayed effeminately to the beats of DJ Megan Taylor. All this celebrating ten local ladies that embody the Cheeky Chicago lifestyle who were chosen by nominations from the readership base.
The top 10 Cheeky Chicks of 2012 are: Kiran Advani—The Cheeky Mom (Fashion Programming Director, Chicago Office of Tourism & Culture); Bridget Albert—The Cheeky Mixologist (Director of Mixology, Southern Wine & Spirits), Maryilene Blondell—The Cheeky Charitable Chick (Development Director, The ALS Association of Greater Chicago Chapter); Leah Chavie--The Cheeky Beauty Expert (Owner and Aesthetician, Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique), Jackie Shen—The Cheeky Chef (Executive Chef, ChicagoCUT Steakhouse); Allison Cooke (The Cheeky Media Girl (Marketing Manager, CS Magazine); Charity Gonzalez—The Cheeky Fitness Guru (Founder, UrbanFitClubs.com); Melissa Muoio—The Cheeky Style Savant (Personal Stylist); Ria Neri—The Cheeky Beer Buff (Beer Cicerone, Bangers & Lace); Ashley Zisook—The Cheeky Entrepreneur (Owner, Sofia Boutique).
