NYFW Spring 2013 Makeup Trends

Fashion week’s bevy of beautiful models had their natural beauty highlighted for Spring 2013. Eyes, lids, brows, and lips were the focus: soft, feature-enhancing makeup and bold, modern looks both reigned on the runways. From iconic images of the past to scenes in nature, makeup artists drew inspiration from a variety of muses and really mixed the old with the new. We can’t wait to try out these fresh trends next spring!

Look 1: Vibrant Patterned Scarf – A bold, bright colored scarf is the perfect complement to any neutral dress this spring. My personal favorite is the Splendid maxi dress. The Theodora & Callum Jaipur Fringe Wearable Art Scarf will take your basics from ordinary to extraordinary! Finish off the look with some fabulous jewelry like the Theodora & Callum Silver/Brass/Gold Salon Bangles. For me gold bangles are a staple in my wardrobe, they can be thrown on with any look, in any climate and any time of year. Have fun mixing patterns and pair the outfit with these Theodora & Callum Orange Bali Espadrilles!

Fashion Week SS2012: Favorite Fashion Round-up

Fashion Week was a whirlwind of  outrageous styles, sky-high heels, glamorous parties and celebrity sightings. We spyed Emma Roberts, Alexa Chung, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Stam, Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Johnny Weir, Nigel Barker, Olivia Palermo, Ramona Singer, Whitney Port, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Rutherford and Kourtney Kardashian, among others. Everyone loves to spot the celebs at Lincoln Center but fashion week is really about the designers and showcasing their new collections for Spring 2012. What shows stuck out in our mind?  Read on for our Fashion Week faves!

Zac Posen is known for ultra-feminine and figure-flattering styles (see picture above). This season he went retro chic, too, and we loved it!  Flirty dresses in fab prints and colorful solids.  No wonder he is a celeb red carpet favorite.

Rag and Bone was sporty with hoods, drawstrings and pops of neon orange. Super young and fresh!

Rebecca Taylor was also a feminine favorite with muted grays, flowy florals and lace cutouts.

We loved Diane von Furstenberg’s use of lace and color blocking. Her clothes were very wearable, as usual!

The Pamella Roland presentation rocked with models that turned up the attitude with dramatic poses and chic shades! Gowns and sequins galore, real Hollywood glamour.

Rachel Roy’s last look was absolutely breathtaking: a fabulous blue dress with a dramatic back was our hands-down favorite.

 

Models at Elie Tahari donned tailored pieces paired with gladiator boot-sandals for a Greco-Roman look. Tailored and at the same time feminine.

Ralph Lauren was total modern elegance. Think silk pastels with feather and sequin accents…very Spring!

This year Christian Siriano’s collection was his signature oversized chiffon ruffles and edgy footwear meets J.Crew-esque nautical striped tees. (PS, Did you know you can get wearable versions of his glam shoes at Payless?)

Jill Stuart used lots of pastels including pale coral, yellow and blue. There was a great mixture of pants, dresses, flowy skirts and silk fabrics in solids and soft ethereal prints (lots of Hermes orange too!).

Yigal Azrouel’s contemporary line Cut25 used color blocking to create a line of flawless casual basics. Sporty, clean lines reminiscent of 80’s surf culture.

Narciso Rodriguez’ collection was full of graphic prints, pretty below-the-knee shift dresses and lavender. Feminine and modern.

Donna Karan featured tribal prints and flattering fits with lots of a-line styles. Favorite cocktail dress: short purple, one shoulder number with perfect ruching.

Michael Kors went for an African-inspired collection with flowing earth tone fabrics and neutral animal prints. The accessories (bags and belts!) were the highlight.

Prabal Gurung had one of the best collections we have seen! Lots of violet, fabulous use of sheer fabrics and prints, black and white.  Simply gorgeous…We want everything!

Helmut Lang is one of our all time favorite designers and this edgy collection did not disappoint.  We love his signature use of draping in severe black and white with a splash of daffodil yellow for spring.

Bridgehampton Polo, Summer 2011 Raises the Bar

The 15th Anniversary Season of Bridgehampton Polo kicked off on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at the famed Two Trees Farm. The match was pushed back an hour due to the sweltering heat, but that didn’t deter the Hampton social crowd from coming out to watch Yellow Cab take on White Birch. Hundreds came to cheer the two teams on including “Real Housewives of New York City” star Cindy Barshop, model Adriana Bachich, Blue Star Jets President Todd Rome, chair of the 53rd Annual Southampton Hospital Summer Gala Jean Shafiroff, Niche Media’s Jason Binn (pictured above), actor Malik Yoba, Russell Simmons (pictured above), Vanity Belles, who sang the national anthem, and designer Betsey Johnson and daughter Lulu who started the match off by throwing the ball onto the polo field.  Blue Star Jets and Sibarth Villa rentals, the ultimate luxury villa rentals in St. Barthelemy, celebrated their new partnership at the event.

White Birch started strong with a nine to zero lead in the second, before Ralph Lauren model and polo player Nacho Figueras finally got Yellow Cab on the scoreboard. White Birch kept their lead the whole match and had a 16 to 10 win over Yellow Cab team in the opening match of the 2011 Monty Waterbury Cup.

This year at Bridgehampton Polo, guests in the new Blue Star Jets VIP Tent were treated to a new level of sophistication and entertainment including live musical performances, celebrity hosts, notable chefs and specialty bars as well as exclusive fashion boutiques. The event featured innovative American cuisine from celebrity hotspot Southampton Social Club. Guests stayed hydrated with delicious Vita Coco Coconut water. They also enjoyed a variety of cocktails…Aperol had its own table featuring a few specialty drinks. Jewelry girls Alex and Ani had a pop up boutique where people could purchase a variety of bangles and bracelets. Sector watches were on display in the VIP tent. Guests enjoyed music by DJ Air Loom and were entertained by magic tricks by magician Kevin Nicholas.
