For Betsey Johnson, fashion is always flirty, bright, and fun! I’ve long been a fan of her bold designs. So when I got an invite to her Fall 2014 runway show, nothing could stop me from attending. Though I originally had standing room only, right before the show started I spotted an unclaimed seat in the third row and snatched it up faster than you can say ‘fabulous.’ Not only did I get these amazing photos of the collection themed around all things hot, but my seat ended up being directly in front of the one and only, Miss Paris Hilton!
Betsey’s show was a red hot smoke show of fab fashion! It even included smoke and fire fighters to put out the fire caused by this insanely hot style. I loved the brilliant reds, statement necklaces, and overall fabulousness of the whole event. I tweeted that it changed my life and I meant it.
On almost every red carpet, you hear about old Hollywood glamour, but rarely do you hear of evening style inspired by the old and also glamourous New York. Pamella Roland‘s Fall 2014 collection, brought me back to old New York City complete with jazz clubs and cabarets. Her evening looks were complete with equally elegant coats.
Earlier this week, I ventured over to Pier 59 for Karolyn Pho‘s runway debut. I loved the simple and comfortable elegance of the collection full of classic blacks, tans, and burgundys. Luxury should be comfortable and this collection truly expressed that. Since I’m dying to wear her designs, I’m so looking forward to seeing more from Karolyn Pho. In addition to a lovely fall line, Karolyn’s bow at the end was absolutely adorable.
Before Diego Binetti‘s Fall 2014 presentation, I was given the exclusive opportunity to go backstage and see what happens behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week. Two hours before the show was scheduled to begin, the models arrived for hair, makeup, and nails. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (love the name) did an amazing job giving the models dramatic smokey eyes with their 100% vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics. Since the collection was inspired by nature and getting back to the earth, the nail artists designed gorgeous ombre nails using Morgan Taylor lacquer made to appear as if the models had been digging in the dirt. Now that you’ve been behind the scenes, click here to check out the collection.
