Temperley London | Spring 2011

Designer Alice Temperley imagined an “era of courtly love” when designing her Spring 2011 collection, specifically the courting of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere. However, Temperely’s Guinevere is no meek maiden. Many of her looks were worn with metal “armor,” giving a hard edge to the romantic looks. Printed jumpsuits and ruffled dresses were held […]

Kanye West | Twitter’s Lipstick Guru

I literally “lol” when I read this tweet on my timeline. Who wouldn’t take makeup advice from someone who refers to makeup artists as lipdressers?! On Friday night, “lipstick” seemed like the most random trending topic on Twitter. Kanye played beauty guru for the night, giving his opinion on the do’s and don’ts of lipstick […]

Cynthia Steffe | Spring 2011

Designer Shaun Kearney captured the essences of spring in Cynthia Steffe’s Spring 2011 collection. Vibrant hues of greens, yellows and fuchsia were not in short supply, flounce dresses and silk shorts, suits and jumpsuits were the show stoppers. Kearney played with asymmetry and cutouts, which can sometimes come off as unbalanced, but he was able to […]

Jenny Packham | Spring 2011

I almost missed Jenny Packham’s first show at New York Fashion Week. The British designer presented her collection at 9 AM (an ungodly hour during fashion week), in the Studio at Lincoln Center.

Tibi | Spring 2011

After seeing the Tibi Spring 2011 collection, I must say it was one of the many moments during fashion week where I was proud to be a girl.  The paisley and floral prints, petal appliqués, pops of bright orange and purple made me want to don one of the circle skirted dresses and do a couple […]

Vassilios Kostesos | Spring 2011

A modern take on ancient Greece came marching down the runway at the Vassilios Kostetsos Spring 2011 show.  Metallics, structure and buoyancy, things that are very Greek, were the themes of the show.  Although the two latter descriptions may contradict the other, Kostetsos was able to marry the two to present a cohesive collection. The […]

Once Solange stepped out of her car, she made her way to the coveted front row of a host of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 shows. Known for her eclectic style and complementary no holds barred attitude, Solange has become quite the fashionista. No matter how quirky or seemingly mismatched they are, Solange’s looks seem […]

O So Chic at Fashion Week Spring Summer 2011

I won a ticket to the Carolina Herrera show from Maybelline. Thanks again @MNYInsider! Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicked off at Lincoln Center last Thursday and I’ve been on the go ever since. I drafted a Fashion Week dairy on Day 1 and I have yet to publish it. It’s all probably old news by now […]
