For a night at the annual Harper’s Bazaar BAZAAR ICONS party celebrating rock n’ roll, I went this unforgettable red dress by Cinq a Sept. With a perfect crop top that so elegantly tied at the shoulder, and a billowing skirt wrapped so perfectly around the waist, it felt a lot more like the undone, rock n’ roll version of a ball gown. Exactly what I was going for. And in red…my favorite color. Stepping onto the red carpet, I kind of had to hold my breath. It is certainly one of the most star-studded parties during NYFW and I was lucky enough to attend and spend the night with my loves at Stella Artois. Here’s what a real party at The Plaza feels like.
Playing with color is a huge part of fall dressing that I love.
Bold socks and leggings make spicing up a look for the chillier weather so much easier. HUEmakes some of the best colorful tights, socks, and leggings out there with a barely-there feel and innovative design.
I took my Audi R8 to Montauk this summer, and boy does this baby vrrooom fast. Summer never feels complete without a car and the open road. You just feel free, unstoppable, and more excited to explore than ever before. I was out east for a weekend work trip…but managed to squeeze in a ton of R&R. Montauk is a place I’ve been going to for years, but this time, it felt new, exciting, and special. With the usual stops, like dinner at Crow’s Nest and countless hours in the roman baths at Gurney’s, I also ventured out to Sag Harbor. We sailed away in a friend’s boat called The Kiwi in Sag Harbor out to the beautiful untouched shores of Gardiner’s Island. Some of the most peaceful beaches are out East…as are the memories.
NYFW was such a whirlwind. It consisted of super early mornings, and really late nights between all of the shows and photoshoots. But let’s not forget the after-parties. I’m talking special performances like Travis Scott and Gucci Mane, lines out the door, and rosé literally pouring out of the water fountains. Only in NYC, I guess! It feels amazing to finally wake up from a proper night’s sleep. But now, it’s time to press REWIND and sashay through through the best of the week…like this designer look, all from Saks. They call it #SaksRunway. A Balenciaga silver knit, stunning Givenchy pants, Proenza Schouler handbag, and the most wild Gucci platform shoes. VA-VA-VOOM. You know I’m a huge fan of anything that glitters and sparkles. I took this look to my Saks and WWD Dimension panel at the Samsung lounge, where we spoke about how fashion and technology meet, and of course, went over all of the hottest trends out there at the moment, including sparkle and shine. We had a packed house in the crowd, but I saw a few familiar faces in the distance, making all the nerves go away. The last thing I wanted to do was trip in front of everyone with my 4 inch heels…
