Donna Karan Spring 2015 Front Row

Donna Karan Spring 2015 Front Row

Camila Alves and Caitlin FitzGerald were on the front row of the Donna Karan Spring 2015 fashion show, held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 in New York City on Monday (September 8). The two lovelies couldn’t have been better coordinated in their Donna Karan Fall 2014 dresses.

Camila Alves: Her dark grey, textural frock featured an exploded, geometric grid pattern of cutouts and sensual sheer detailing, which she accessorized with black sandals. Her tresses blended right in to the dress, so an updo would have been preferred here.

Caitlin FitzGerald: Also flaunting the peekaboo look, Caitlin’s black number had a slightly more streamlined silhouette and perhaps a touch more blatant sultry appeal with sheer panels tracing below her hip. Her makeup was barely detectable, but a dress like this almost demands a smoky eye or the pop of a bold lip as the finishing touch. Do you agree?

Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 Front Row

Monique Lhuillier Front Row

The Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 show at New York Fashion Week saw plenty of stylish stars sitting front and center on the front row.

Sophia Bush: The stylish star wore a black high neck dress with cap sleeves and a sheer embroidered overlay from the designer’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection. She paired the some funky jewels, a white box clutch and a pair of aqua pumps. Because of the dress’s formal, dramatic nature, it was fun to see the added interest from the accessories.

Louise Roe: A black, one-shoulder jumpsuit with lace sleeve detailing from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection looked stunning on Louise, and her bright red nails and layers of gold bangles added the perfect pizzaz to the already sexy style.

Rihanna In Adam Selman – Adam Selman Spring 2015

Rihanna In Adam Selman - Adam Selman Spring 2015

Rihanna attended the Adam Selman presentation at Algus Greenspon Gallery, held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 on Friday (September 5).

Clearly inspired by the designer’s spring runway, she flaunted a non-printed version of the ruffled, button-down Spring 2015 shirt-dress that took to the runway.

She added some attitude to the flirty, babydoll frock with an Ana Khouri 18k gold and three pearl ‘Jane’ ear cuff, along with a doorknocker pearl cocktail rings, a long double-wrapped strand of pearls and that pile of tumbling curls.

As for those strappy, laser-cut white Christian Louboutin ‘Impera’ heels… j’adore.

With their all-white outfits, the songstress and Selman do create a fun photo op, likewise making me appreciate her lighthearted look even more.

Cool or too cutesy?

New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend: Fresh, Dewy Skin

New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend Fresh, Dewy Skin

There’s nothing better than clear, fresh-looking skin–and we saw exactly that during fashion week. From subtly sculpted cheeks to the perfect placement of highlighter, this look is not only wearable, but it’s totally easy to imitate.

The look at Diane von Furstenberg was ballerina chic. Makeup artist James Kaliardos focused on the contouring of the models’ cheeks by using different shades of concealer. He widened their eyes with a nude liner just on the waterline and topped off the lids with a creamy gray shade and a mauve lip hue for additional sheen. Finishing off with coats of mascara, he truly made the models look as if they were ready for their final bow.

Diane Kendal, for Prabal Gurung, skipped powder to keep a dewy finish for her look. She started with MAC Cosmetics Face and Body foundation as a base and then layered on a rosy cream blush, for the ultimate “flushed” appearance. Brows were brushed up, for a touch of unruly youth. Kendal wanted very little color in the lips, so she applied just a hint of foundation to tone down color.

Rag & Bone also debuted highlighted features and clean skin, but with a twist. Makeup artist Gucci Westman was inspired by Katharine Hepburn and created a contrasting, thick line of black liner that flicked into a wing at the ends. He used pointed Q-tips to clean up the liner shape, making it look really graphic.

Rose and apricot were the shade combo that Tom Pecheux used on models’ cheeks at the Ralph Lauren show. His trick to perfectly flushed apples? Instead of swiping the brush onto the skin, he pushes it in. “Otherwise it just sits on top,” he explained. The top lashes were given generous coats of Estee Lauder’s Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara in black, and the bottom in brown.

Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 Front Row

Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 Front Row

Lupita Nyong’o and Naomi Watts attended the Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2014 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, held at Spring Studios on Thursday (February 13) in New York City.

There was heavy snow in the city, but both ladies opted for light pastel hues.

Lupita Nyong’o: The actress, who was seated next to Anna Wintour, wore a soft-pink Calvin Klein Collection Pre-Fall 2014 cozy long-sleeve dress with a tied waist which she styled with matching CK sandals and a CK grey clutch. The dress is gorgeous; it’s yet another great colour choice , but I’m not a fan of the grey clutch.

Naomi Watts: I also found myself frowning at Naomi’s dark accessories against her baby-blue sleeveless high-neck Calvin Klein Collection dress. Silver may have been a better option, however, I do love the effortlessness of her look. Both her hair and makeup are perfection. A gold Delfina Delettrez Detaille Unique bracelet completed her look.

Take both clutches out of the equation and we have two perfect chic looks.
