NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Joy Marks, named Renaissance Woman for the June issue of 25A, graces the cover in a black Maggie Norris Couture creation reminiscent of the gown worn by Rita Hayworth in the movie "Gilda." Joy Marks is the quintessential New Yorker, style icon, philanthropist, entrepreneur, health care professional and former model who embodies the look of Old Hollywood Glamour in the forties and fifties.
She wears Maggie Norris Couture designs throughout in this photo shot for 25A Magazine, accessorized with Harry Winston and Van Cleef and Arpels jewels and Christian Louboutin shoes.
A femme fatale, Joy Marks gives her parents credit for much of her success. Her mother was a Broadway star, professional singer and dancer and also majored in English, while her father was a well-known and successful restaurateur. Her parents created an atmosphere, which helped to bring her many passions to fruition. Dancing and singing lessons were a daily part of her life as well as elocution lessons as she was to be the next Shirley Temple! At the age of four, Joy won her first beauty pageant and continued in pageantry and acting.
On the flipside, Joy dreamed of a career in medicine and has advanced degrees in Nursing, Public Health, Psychology and Business. While in college Joy did an internship at Restaurant Associates which piqued her interest in desserts and especially beautifully decorated cakes and pastries. She later did an internship with Bank Leumi, which gave her great insight into investment banking and entrepreneurial ventures. While in training for nursing and after six weeks of special training at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Joy was chosen by Dr. Jorge Buxton, who was the pioneer of the corneal transplant, to be on his team. It was an honor.
Joy is involved with many philanthropic causes, she is most known in the Hamptons and New York, Newport and Palm Beach for her exquisite evening gowns and elaborate headpieces worn to the most elegant parties and charity events. She is now the exclusive ambassador for Maggie Norris Couture who designed all of Joy's evening gowns for the 25A magazine shoot. Maggie Norris not only designed all the exquisite couture, but created the looks for the perfect Rita Hayworth hair and make-up, Joy's icon!
Tune in to read Joy's next endeavor in her new book, "The Joy Stories," coming out this fall.
