Opening the Polyvore Live Runway Show!

My favorite part of NYFW was opening and closing the Polyvore Live runway show! Getting to walk alongside all the girls/bloggers that have inspired me from the very beginning was amazing. My sister Dylana was also in town to walk the show with me! We had our fitting in Soho and it was the first time we all viewed the collections. We had Ready-To-Wear and Evening Wear. Rarely do I ever get this dressed up, so it was fun being a part of the Evening Wear part of the show, all glammed up with two beautiful gowns as my looks. For the show, we did something very unexpected and pulled all of my hair back. It added a much more clean and classy look for the collection. Plus, it felt very refreshing for me not having my hair in my face! The makeup was a sexy, smokey-brown eye, which I think really made the colors of our eyes light up like mad! Super pretty 🙂

I opened the show in this stunning, floor length red dress by Vengsarkar Budhu, an FIT graduate. With it’s corset-like waist, it really gave me some shape! It was sexy, but sweet and just plain hot! I closed the show in a white wedding gown by the amazing Sergio Guadarrama, also a recent FIT graduate. Never have I seen a wedding dress with a cape! It was such an original design and looked absolutely magical on the runway. I loved working with these two designers! They may be the sweetest guys on the planet! I just loved how their faces lit up as the show began. It was a dreamy, unforgettable night, getting to play dress up with all my favorite girls…all while feeling like a total princess.

    Oh, those dresses sure are dreamy! Especially that wedding dress: it’s ridiculously perfect, oh man.

    You looked wonderful, too: but then that’s a given because, well, it’s you. So did Dylana- her dress looks incredible.

    Thanks for posting these! SO lovely.
