I first learned about NOON BY NOOR at an event earlier this year. I was interviewing Ginnifer Goodwin and when I asked who she was wearing she called out the designer. That’s when my love affair with the brand began and upon receiving a ticket to the show to preview their Spring collection is where the love affair continued (especially being seated front row where I could truly appreciate every detail of the design). And I wasn’t the only one. Sitting across from me was Solange and Leigh Lezark in matching NOON BY NOOR prints.

Parties, Places, & Faces: Kiehl’s Kicks off Pride, Mark Ronson Performs for Fendi, Toy Says Goodnight and StyleCaster Turns 5!
Last night NYC was happening! Skincare brand, Kiehl’s Since 1851 kicked off Gay Pride weekend at their flagship store in the East Village. Hosted by Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo and Ben Cohen, with music by KISSETTE, the brand made a special donation to the Ben Cohen Standup Foundation. Special guests included Ally Sheedy, Leigh Lezark of The Misshapes, Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters. As well as the dynamic duo Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra of Costella Tagliapietra.
Then off to the Meatpacking District to the CATCH Rooftop for Fendi Perfumes & Modern Luxury’s Manhattan Magazine for a live DJ set by Mark Ronson to celebrate the new Fan di FENDI Pour Homme Acqua Fragrance.
The evening concluded with a surprise live performance of Bang Bang Bang accompanied by Amanda Warner of MNDR! The crowd went while as the duo instantly amped up (the already very energetic) crowd into a total dance and cheer-fest. The only thing that could have possibly made the moment better was Q-Tip and the rangers.
The video is too good not to share…
We then crossed the street to Toy, for their re-location party. The restaurant-bar hotspot celebrated it’s final night in the Meatpacking with a sensual burlesque performance — all eyes were on this feathered goddess. As to where Toy will be re-locating to, it’s under wraps… for now!
Meanwhile at the Jade Hotel our friends at StyleCaster celebrated their 5th birthday with performances by The Misshapes and Mick! Congratulations StyleCaster, we love you!
NYFW: Boy Meets Girl at Nicole Miller Fall 2013
For the Fall 2013 collection, Nicole Miller took inspiration from “girls who dress like boys”. And while there is a menswear influence, the designs were far from masculine. The collection consisted of sleekly tailored silhouettes in a deep, textured color palettes. Menswear inspired looks were juxtaposed with feminine fabrics, prints, and leather and fur accents.
While in previous seasons dresses dominated the runway, I was happy to see more of a focus on pants — as she has some of the most flattering skinnies on the market. Also the jackets stole the show — the prints and fits from both fitted zip-ups to long coats with fur trims had me swooning. Her collection of
Kids Play: The Coveteur’s Epic Relaunch Video #MiniCoveteur
This is positively too cute (and too amazing) not to share! One of my favorite sites, The Coveteur, which takes us into the homes of some of the most coveted fashionistas and design is relaunching their site and to celebrate they produced this insanely adorbs video of their faux launch party with a mini A-list crowd including: Karl Lagerfeld and Chopette, Rachel Zoe, Anna Dello Russo, Brad Goreski, BryanBoy, The Man Repeller, Susie Bubble, Tommy Ton, Leigh Lezark, Hugh Hefner, Justin Bieber and even “Kimye” (Kim Kardashian & Kanye West) — as children! The ending with Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington is priceless!
Like everything you do, The Coveteur, well done and congratulations on the relaunch!
Kiehl’s Celebrates their 160th Anniversary in True NYC Fashion
New York-based skin care brand, Kiehl’s Since 1851 celebrated their 160th Anniversary last week across the street from their iconic flagship location on 13th and 3rd Avenue. While the rain was pouring outside, the stars we’re shining bright inside. Guests included Pharrell Williams, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Jonas, Alan Cummings, Richie Rich, Ana Matronic and Babydaddy of the Scissor Sisters and Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol of The Misshapes.
My lovely date Erika (who’s wedding I just got back from in Acapulco!) and I got there on the later side and the party was bumping! We had ourselves a little dance party, but didn’t hold a candle to Richie Rich. He decided to get up on stage and do an impromptu performance to Prince’s Raspberry Beret for us (this could be the best video ever–only thing missing, glitter!).
Kevin Jonas took a second from his phone conversation to blew us a kiss…
Then we concluded our night on one of Kiehl’s iconic motorcycles, where I thought we were taking pictures in a photo booth –even better, a flip book photo booth! Erika and I look insane. I love it!
If you’re in NYC check out the Kiehl’s Flagship Store at 109 Third Avenue. As part of their heritage project, they’ve included a brand-new installation of an interactive 160th Anniversary Retrospective at the store. Cheers to you Kiehl’s for 160 years of great skin care products!
Wella Professionals Launches Flagship Salon at Pipino 57 in NYC
Model and actress, Rebecca Romijn and celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino hosted the opening of Wella Professionals first North American flagship salon at Pipino 57 and the launch of Wella’s new product line in New York City.
I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t know nearly enough about Ric Pipino when I received the invitation (aside from his Pipino salon in Nolita somewhere –which I’ve been meaning to try). The cool factor of the new salon alone and that it carries the Wella Professionals line (not to mention Ric Pipino’s celebrity clientele, runway work and unbeknownst to me he has a signature hair line, Revolution In Cut) has me so excited to go back and try both locations.
The grand opening attracted the likes of Bridget Moynahan, Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl), Leigh Lezark (from The Misshapes), Alison Brie (Mad Men), and Fern Mallis (the originator of New York Fashion Week!). And while everyone showed up looking fabulous –Kelly Rutherford is as effortlessly chic in person as she is on Gossip Girl (the photos don’t do her justice). And as much as I’m not into all that Hills/City stuff, I have to say Whitney Port is stunning, and the girl can dress! Meanwhile I got caught in the rain and my hair couldn’t have looked more tragic if I tried.
Fun fact! I caught up with Leigh Lazark at the event who shared that she became a fan of the Wella line when she was traveling in Ukraine and was coloring her own hair. Turns out she’s
