MAC Cosmetics launches Mia Moretti Collection at Coachella


One of our favorite parties during Coachella for both myself and Patricia Field was the poolside bash hosted by MAC Cosmetics for the launch of their festival inspired collection with DJ superstar, Mia Moretti. Filled with a beautiful range of peach-tones, pinks to reds, the seven piece collection (plus makeup bag and tote!), consists of two lipsticks, a six shade lipstick palette, and four color creme’s which can be used on cheeks, lids and lips. While catching up with the Moretti, she chatted about how much she wanted to create a very wearable collection using colors she would actually wear and could also envision women wanting to carry around in their makeup case. 

NYFW: Pencey Spring/Summer 2013 Presentation

This Fashion Week, Pencey’s Christina Minanian collaborated with famed DJ Mia Moretti to put together a 10-piece jazz era inspired collection for the Spring/Summer 2013 presentation. Unique and flowery, Moretti’s personal style was a great addition to Pency’s collection. The juxtaposition of simple stripes and intricate flower designs definitely made for an eye-catching presentation.

NYFW: DL1961 Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show

-PC Fashion Corespondent, Tiffany Piñero of Tiffany Piñero Style

Making their New York Fashion Week debut, denim line DL1961 held their first runways show this season at Pier 57 on Manhattan’s westside. The space was filled with the aroma of cotton candy and piles of the young, fabulous types. A few noteable names on hand were DJ Mia Moretti and electric violinist Caitlin Moe who entertained the crowd post show, along with singer, songwriter Neon Hitch and Kristin Chenoweth.

The show started out with a show in itself as the first model made her way down I thought, that is some kind of runway walk? Only to realize, she was one of a dozen professional ballerinas sashaying in white denim to the raging pipes of Florence and the Machine. Following the mini performance came the Spring 2013 collection which had styling contributions from Nylon’s Editor-at-large Dani Stahl. There was a distinct edge in the looks countered with ease by messy side braids and sunkissed faces. A pair of red leather pants with interesting topstiching and slim denim with rose gold hardware were the must-have highlights for the ladies. As for the gentlemen it was all about fit and signature washes, keeping looks clean with v neck tops and breezy cardigans.

Backstage at Alice + Olivia F/W 2012 Collection + Chignon Hair How-To

Going backstage for the alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet is always a treat. Getting a peak at her Fall/Winter 2012 collection before it’s being released and watching all the action backstage as the models are transformed into works of art. Playing off this diverse Lolita-inspired collection which puts a fresh, mix-and-match twist on dressing up for a dinner party, Bendet collaborated with Sebastian Professional lead stylist Anthony Cole to create a swept-back, loosely constructed chignons. Coupled with a dark, bold lip and black smokey-eye from Stila, the look balanced this combination of feminine and edginess we saw throughout the collection.

HAIR LEAD STYLIST: Anthony Cole for Sebastian Professional


1. On damp hair, apply a palmful of Sebastian Professional Whipped Crème throughout.  Then, layer in a palmful of Mousse Forte.  This combination will give the hair long-lasting, defrizzed body.

2. Blow-dry smooth using a large round brush.  Once dry, divide hair in half horizontally, from recession to the back of the crown.  Pin aside the top section and pull the bottom into a tight ponytail at the occipital bone.

3. Twist the ponytail around the base and pin to secure.  Spray with Sebastian Professional Shaper hairspray for shape and hold.

4. Take down the top section and create a middle part.  Taking one side at a time, smooth back each section to twist and pin around the chignon in the back.  Be sure to keep the hair loose in the front so the hairline does not show.

5. Detail random pieces of the chignon with Sebastian Professional Craft Clay for matte hold.  Pull pieces from under each top section loose to frame the face.

6. Once in shape, lightly spray Sebastian Professional Trilliant over the finished look for a touch of shimmer and shine.


  • Whipped Crème – Ultra-light styler that nourishes and liftscurls and waves for a silky, shiny finish ($18.95)
  • Mousse Forte – Strong hold mousse that creates strong-lasting de-frizzed curls and waves ($13.95)
  • Shaper – Brushable working hairspray to create direction, lift and control with a medium hold ($15.95)
  • Craft Clay – Re-sculpting clay that redefines matte-hold styles to separate and re-style texture (15.95)
  • Trilliant – Thermal Protection and Shimmer Complex for ultra-light body and a glamorous shiny finish ($19.95)

Bloomingdale’s celebrates Hugo Boss with Artists, Jeff Koons, Mia Moretti & Caitlin Moe

Check out my Jeff Koons original!

Last night, was a big day for Hugo Boss (and me)! As some of you saw the invite (I posted earlier this week), Sunham Home Fashions was celebrating the launch of the new BOSS Home bedding collection at Bloomingdale’s. Hosted on the 7th floor, guests had the opportunity to shop the collection and enjoy a musical performances by Mia Moretti & Caitlin Moe. I’ve seen those girls do their violin/DJ set probably 15 times in the past year and it never gets old! BOSS Home will be exclusive to Bloomingdale’s for the next 3 months, so go check them out!

I stopped by with Lorna from The Fabulous Report and we met up with the super fun Fashion Indie team to check out the collection; then headed down to the 3rd floor, where Hugo Boss continued the party with the launch of the new BOSS Black women’s shop. If upstairs was all about the jams, downstairs was all about art, with a special appearance by renowned artist, Jeff Koons! Apparently Koons is a big fan of the brand and to mark the new opening, he designed a limited edition shopping bag for Hugo Boss. And guess what? Jeff Koons drew me an original drawing (in front of me) on the bag! It was kind of the best ever!

I’m freaking out that I have a Jeff Koon’s original, complete with my name on it and his autograph! This bag is totally getting framed. Side note: Samantha, Editor-In-Chic of FashionIndie had this awesome Samsung Galaxy Note phone and was able to pimp out photo with comments after she took the shot (as seen above with her fancy penmanship)! Wish my iPhone could do that.

I caught a sneak peek of the home collection at the brand’s launch party which was hosted at the Hugo Boss showroom. And between the clothing on the manikins and the bed display, I could live a very happy life residing in that showroom. Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe performed their DJ/Violin ensemble. And how could I resist the photo booth?

PC at Nicole Miller Spring 2012 RTW Collection

My first Spring 2011 show of the season and definitely one of my favorites as far as totally funky, wearable 60’s athletic wear meets 80’s neon hues and checkers turned ready-to-wear collection goes. Appropriately named Fast Forward/Rewind as it took a fashion forward look on the past, I’m all about this collection! It featured fitted dresses with geometric shapes, flowy tops paired with fitted pants, prints, checkers and bright colors galore. Great black basics were mixed in (and easy to miss) within the psychedelic prints and pay special attention to the shoes! They are divine! The collection was so fun and full of energy that it got me super excited for spring!

Described as the speed of wheels in motion. The momentum of a skateboard shredding through the air. The sooming tempo of an inline track. The velocity of a bicycle racing towards the goal… All I can say is Nicole scored!

And seriously, when am I not wearing Nicole Miller to events? In a world where rarely anything looks like it was made for my body, she’s one of my favorites; so a ticket to her fashion show is always a highlight and score to cover for Pretty Connected. Plus it’s a good chance to preview everything I plan on wearing for the next calendar year;)

It’s clear by soft nude makeup (look created by James Kaliardos for MAC Cosmetics) and straight hair (lead by Kevin Ryan for RSession Tool), all eyes we’re meant for the clothes. And considering they speak

Refinery29’s Summer Jam Series

On July 6th, the cleverly hip and ever so stylish fashion and beauty website, Refinery29.com kicked off their Summer Jam series at the W Downtown Hotel.

Party at the W!

While I’m not generally one to be spotted in the financial district –uh pretty much ever –okay maybe a few times a year –I make an exception for friends that are tourists and that live in the area and now Refinery29!

I grabbed a group and hit the terrace. The inside was overly happening as guests flocked to the bar. As I maneuvered my way through the crowd to grab a drink, it was a reunion and half. I ran into old friends, new friends, old coworkers (I really must be on my 10th anniversary in NY).

Great DJ’s (Caitlin Moe and Mia Moretti was spinning!), good drinks, fun crowd, amazing friends, nice breeze… What more could you ask for?

The party continues July 19th through August 30th. Get in on it!


Weekend Escape with Carrera at the Mondrian Soho

Carrera Escape @ Mondrian Soho Roof

Sometimes the best escapes are the ones in our backyard. Or rather my friend Gene’s whose apartment looks into the Mondrain Soho. Taking a staycation to the next level, Carrera sunglasses hosted a two-day escape this weekend on the rooftop of the Mondrian Soho. Offering morning yoga classes, afternoon massages (compliments of Equinox), and of course a preview of the latest Carrera sunglasses collection. Don’t mind if I do…

Guests were free to roam around the roof and take in the view or layout on the deck and enjoy an assortment of magazines, while the handsome men of Venroy Australia circled the penthouse (gotta love the eye candy– I mean the swimsuit sponsors). The only thing sexier, were the sunglasses. I’m so into the vintage 70s racer meets Don Johnson/Miami Vice thing Carrera has going on. And with
