Street Style

Shooting street fashion is loads of fun and I wish I had dedicated more time to it this year. Nonetheless here are a few snaps from the fashion forward and fashion backward. Once again, we will let you decide what trends you love and hate.

Fall Fashion Week Adventures, Day 3!

My third and final day at NY Fashion Week consisted of 2 big shows…Tracy Reese and Diane Von Furstenberg. I always love a Diane show, it always brings out a variety of interesting people.

And so…back to regular life…back to trips to the park and drinking juicy juice….and just 6 months to convince one (or more) sisters to come for September Fashion Week!!

Beautiful people leaving Tracy Reese:

TV Personality Louise Roe-I just had to show her cute little outfit!

Kate Mara: So I have to admit, I had no idea who this “Kate” was and had to google her once I got home. Interestingly she is from Bedford, NY–just  30 mins away from where we live.  Her Great grandfather was the founder of the NY Giants, which explains why people were commenting to her about the Giants winning the superbowl. Also…her sister is much talked about Rooney Mara-of Dragon Tattoo, who knew!?

Canadian Actress Shenae Grimes (of 90210)…she had fans (even crying fans?!) waiting for her. Weird, no?

Nikki Reed…again

Model Selita Ebanks and boyfriend Terrence J (host of BET’s 106+Park). Cutest couple!!!

Lovely to see the beautiful socialite Tinsley Mortimer again-heading into Custo Barcelona.

Random sighting…Sandra Bernhart

Former SuperModel Beverly Johnson.

More beautiful people attending the Diane Von Furstenberg Show.

Editor in Chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour.

The beautiful Barbara Walters-she is seriously so rad…I can’t even explain!

Actress Molly Sims, rockin the pregnant glow!

Oscar DeLaRenta

Diane Sawyer

Making grey hair look good, Bravo’s Andy Cohen

Designer/stylist Rachel Zoe and her husband TV personality Rodger Berman. Their baby is the same age as Dre, so Rodger and I had a little chat about our dear sweet babies…how they are crawling and getting into absolutely everything! Yes, hoping for a playdate soon;)

Editor of Marie Claire Joanna Coles, recently seen on Project Runway All Stars as the designer’s mentor.

Marie Claire Fashion Director and Project Runway judge, Nina Garcia.

The beautiful Coco Rocha…what show didn’t she attend!?

Fashion Blogger Bryan Boy.

And last of all, one of my favorite fashion bloggers (and total gentleman) Karl-Edwin Guerre. This guy is one cool cat.

Behind the scenes at Porter Grey

Backstage at Porter Grey!!!

For those of you unfamiliar with this line, Porter Grey is an American contemporary sportswear line, founded and run by sisters Kristen and Alexandra O’Neill.

I love this photo…I think that being backstage is so glamorous! The models, the clothes, the designers, celebs etc. But while that is all true…some parts are simply not so fun. It’s cold. It’s boring as you wait for the next look to get ready. The reporters and photographers are always bumping into each other or getting into each others shot. It’s very small with a hundred people all crowding in. And everyone thinks THEIR job is the most important one of all…PR, security, papps, models etc…  ANYWAYS….I love the reality of this picture….two cold and uncomfortable, bored models amongst all the chaos.

The hair team was led by Rebecca Naftzger for Cutler. “She blow-dried the models’ hair with a round brush and curled it with a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron while leaving out the ends. It created this big subtle wave, which complemented the clothes perfectly.”

Jose Rivera,the makeup artist leading the Sephora PRO Beauty team emphasized clean skin; wind-blown cheeks to indicate an outdoorsy, ready-to-face-the-elements strength; a rich and saturated black lash line and an understated and deconstructed lip look with scattered golden shimmer.

Ruffian Fall Fashion Show

What a fantastic way to start my day-The Ruffian fashion show! Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are the designers behind Ruffian. Their press notes stated they were inspired by “viewing bronze sculptures of Henry Moore set against the backdrop of English estates.” You can easily see the english influence-very modest and sophisticated. I am personally in love with these hats…GORGous!

See the video below for the shows opening. Its my favorite part of a fashion show as it sets the tone for the whole show! As luck would have it…I got seats in the second row (!!!) and am seated right behind photographer Douglas Friedman, Actress Amanda Setton and Lorenzo Martone (Marc Jacobs ex).

Fall Fashion Week Adventures, Day 1

Fall. Fashion. Week. 

Cold or not…here I am! And happy to be here!

There is nothing like fashion week to make you realize that you’ve become lazy with fashion. Since having Dre, I’ve let myself slip into the ‘comfortable dressing’ zone. I mean, who needs to wear 6 inch heels to storytime? Or why bother curling your hair just for a trip to Toys R Us? But I saw Rachel Zoe (who’s baby Skylar is the same age as Dre) and she is looking AMAzing! Nina Garcia….gORGeous! Molly Sims is prego and rockin’ the heels! So here’s to stepping it up!

This February there were even fewer celebs than usual…and some of my favorite models are no longer walking in NYFW (ahhum karly kloss!) BUT I attended 2 shows and was backstage at another…so that made up for it. Over the next week I will try to blog my Fashion Week adventures….Stay tuned!
