Backstage at Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer 2015 collection, the nails stole the show! Lead nail artist Miss Pop for OPI showed us a fun way to do nail art by showing off some of your natural nail by creating a nail look showcasing negative space, with alternating cutout half moon shapes.

To complement the collection’s feminine color palette, Miss Pop used OPI pastel mint shade That’s Hula-rious! (Launching February 2015) on the hands and for the feet she used shade Bubble Bath with the addition of a fun daisy on the big toe. (Both manicure and pedicure looks were prepped with OPI Base Coat and finished with OPI Top Coat.)

For me fashion week kicked off two weeks ago with an invitation to attend fitness brand, Athleta’s debut fashion show titles a Crush of Adrenaline. Dressing the part, I geared up in my sporty blues in what was easily the most comfortable ensemble I’ve ever worn to a show (more outfit pics on my other blog, inhisclothes.com).

Brands Doing Some Good

Rihanna for UNICEF's Tap Project

I cover a lot of charities on this site since giving back is important to me and I’m constantly amazed by the amount of press releases I receive with brands showing their support by donating to various causes. So to show my support, I thought I would do a sum up of the recent ones I’ve received.

NYU Annual Premiere Benefit Fashion Show EXPO 2011 – Friday April 29th, 3PM (day show), 7:30PM (evening show). All of the proceeds from the show will benefit Hamilton-Madison House, a nonprofit community center that caters to low-income households in NYC.

If you can’t make the show, you can still get involved. EXPO 2011 has partnered with GoodSearch. Anyone online can download the GoodSearch toolbar, specify “New York University – NYU EXPO – Hamilton Madison House” as the chosen charity, and each time that they use the toolbar to search the internet, Hamilton-Madison House benefits.

UNICEF Tap Project – Celebrities, including Selena Gomez, Adrian Grenier, Dwight Howard, Rihanna, Robin Williams and Taylor Swift have joined forces with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to engage consumers in a conversation about the lack of access to safe, clean water for nearly 900 million children and adults across the globe. The UNICEF Tap Project is a public service campaign that aims to draw attention to this serious issue and encourage the public to take action to reduce the numbers of children dying daily from waterborne illnesses, the second-highest cause of preventable childhood deaths in the world. Considering $1 provides clean water for a child for 40 days –imagine the difference you can make! Get involved at http://tapproject.org/

Beyonce for Temptu: Dereon Temporary Tattoos

Beyonce under her mother, Tina Knowles’ fashion label, House of Dereon has teamed up with airbrush makeup company Temptu to create a new limited edition line of temporary tattoos.

Lorick Spring 2011 Collection

As a Gossip Girl fan, I’ve been drooling over the designs of  Eleanor Waldorf since Season 1. However it wasn’t until Season 2 that I learned Abigail Lorick was the real-life ghost designer behind the character’s collection; so imagine my excitement to receive an invitation to attend her Spring 2011 collection.

Hosted at Philip Pelusi’s Tella Design Studio in the meatpacking district, Lorick previewed her collection during NY Fashion week. Titled Linear Dawn and inspired by painter Agnes Martin, it was a very whimsical collection with asubtle palette of muted purples and blues. The clothes we’re effortlessly chic with fabrications of organza ageorgette and chiffon. It was cohesive and yet each piece was very unique, down to the styling.  With neutral makeup and rosy cheeks, some model wore their hair down with hats, while others in a low bun.

While backstage I noticed all the model’s shoes we’re wrapped in nylons. I assumed that was some new, clever way of

GANT by Michael Bastian Spring 2011 Collection

Last fall, Michael Bastian designed his first menswear collection for GANT. This season for his Spring 2011 presentation, the classic American heritage brand launched it’s first womenswear collection.

Can I take a moment to just say WOW? When I walked into the presentation held at Sir Stage 37 during NY Fashion Week, I was agape by the world I had entered.  Okay it was just a room, but It felt like I was on a movie set from a different era and was struck by how visually stunning the models, the makeup, the sets and of course the clothes were. Inspired by the many husbands of Marilyn Monroe –mainly Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, the show merged the classic sporty man with a classic Hollywood beauty.

Max Delorme, Key Makeup Artist for TEMPTU created the makeup looks for the show. Although Temptu is no stranger to photo shoots or television sets, It never ceases to amaze me the level of precision and perfection that can be achieved using an airbrush.

Inspired by “old Hollywood Glamour”, Delorme wanted to create a modern 50s look. How did he do it? By giving the models very soft, perfect skin with strong, sharp eyebrow and lip. “I used white inside the eyes to make them look bigger without mascara, and no blush. And two different looks for the lips; coral for a cute, softer look and red
