You’ve got (to have) the blues

17 Aug

Chanel’s Limited Edition Le Vernis Nail Colour collection exclusively for Fashion’s Night Out, of course.
And if you’re in New York, visit any of the three Chanel boutiques (two on Madison Avenue between Midtown East and the Upper East Side, and one on Spring Street in SoHo) and receive a complimentary manicure featuring these shades.

Where will you be?

The much-anticipated event listings are now official for Fashion’s Night Out, set for September 8th!
 For those not in the know,
Q: What is Fashion’s Night Out?
A: Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 in a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.

Events take place in every city worldwide, so be sure to check local retailers and see what’s in store for September 8th.  If you’re in New York, you know very well to plan your night out — you may start on the Upper West Side and at the end of the evening find yourself in SoHo.
One of the best and favorites is Bergdorf Goodman; the department store has an incredibly detailed and star-studded schedule you won’t want to miss.  However, if you’re one to meet and mingle with designers, go to Saks Fifth Avenue, chat, play Pictionary (like last year with Chris Benz, Peter Som, Prabal Gurung, and Zac Posen).  Henri Bendel may be smaller in comparison but the New York icon certainly throws a chic, classy cocktail event!  I personally look forward to the Marc Jacobs Carnival along with 3.1 Phillip Lim, but again, who knows?  We’ll also see if the Boyfriend braves price tags at Harry Winston.

The 10 supermodels of 2010

16 Dec

Wrapping up the year, French Vogue announced its 10 supermodels of 2010.  So who made the list?

    1. Karlie Kloss
    Who hasn’t seen Karlie? She’s the industry’s “it”-girl appearing in the most Fashion Week Spring ’11 shows and gracing editorials and designer ad campaigns basically everywhere.  The November issue of American Vogue gave a behind-the-scenes look at her hectic schedule this past Fashion Week season and its overlapping Fashion’s Night Out.  Success comes at a fabulous price, one we’re all willing to pay if we get the chance, of course.
    2. Mirte Maas
    3. Lindsey Wixson
    4. Abbey Lee Kershaw
    5. Karmen Pedaru
    6. Ginta Lapina
    7. Daphne Groeneveld
    8. Frida Gustavsson
    Frida is certainly one of the prettiest faces on the runway, and I admire her for staying true to herself refusing to lose weight despite her agency and the industry’s demands; it also promotes a healthier image!  Here in French Vogue, she is praised for having the “true body of a woman.”  Are we going to see more models with a bit feminine shape?  After the heroin chic 90’s and Kate Moss, let’s hope so.
    9. Arizona Muse
    In model-mode, no one can pull off androgyny quite like her, though off-camera she has all the glamour and beauty of the Roaring Twenties.
