Betsy Elisa Beauty Bar at New York Fashion Week 2017

To kick off the first day of fashion week on September 8th, I got glammed up at the Betsy Elisa Beauty Bar at The Lofts at Prince at 177 Prince Street. I was heading over to the Saks x Vogue party downtown, for the grand opening of Saks Fifth Avenue. To get ready for the party, Marissa did a amazing job on my makeup, including a bronze smokey eye! Mia effortlessly curled my hair, transforming from straight to soft waves. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup that evening. This is my second time that I was styled by the Betsy Elisa team during fashion week, the first was at their beauty bar in 2014. 

Media and VIP guests who got glammed up at the beauty bar received a swag bag filled with goodies from Mario Badescu, Click n Curl, Got2be, Rapidlash, Chi Hair Care and Face Atelier. 

Thank you again to Betsy Elisa for hosting another wonderful beauty bar!

Jeans for Refugees by Johny Dar at Skylight at Moynihan Station at New York Fashion Week included a live performance by Polly A throughout the runway show. All the jeans featured on the runway have been donated by celebrities and  hand-painted by artist Johny Dar. Each pair of jeans is an exclusive piece of wearable art, embellished with a special 3D paint and reflect the individual personality of each donor.

Anna Wintour, Benicio del Toro, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss, Nicholas Hoult, Rachel McAdams, Usher and Victoria Beckham were among the celebrities who donated a pair of jeans. 

'Jeans for Refugees' is a Johny Dar project and artistic fundraising initiative dedicated to helping refugees from around the world. Each piece is being auctioned online at catawiki.com/jeansforrefugees, with proceeds being donated to the International Rescue Committee.

Nicholas K Spring / Summer 2017 at New York Fashion Week


Nicholas K Spring / Summer 2017 collection titled "Wadi Rum" is inspired by the 2014 movie "Theeb," portraying the life of Bedouin culture in the mystic Wadi Rum. A place of narrow canyons, towering plateaus and dusty palette of nudes pays homage to its nickname "The Valley of the Moon." Sustainability continues to be the source of inspiration and design, using artisan woven fabrics, organic cottons, vegetable dyed leathers and alpaca-linen blends. 

There are lightweight and airy pieces in long, loose fitting silhouettes, draping, layering and wrapped and knotted details. Nicholas K does leather so well, so the leather jackets and bags are easily my favorite pieces. Jewelry is by Lisa Linhardt. The horsetail pony was created by Giannandrea for Macadamia Professional, makeup by Sarah Lucero for Stila and nails by Miss Pop for NCLA. Check out my backstage coverage on hair, makeup and nails.
