OK! Magazine Party Celebrates Kim Kardashian, New Contributing Beauty Editor

kim+kardashian+ok+launch+party OK! Magazine Party Celebrates Kim Kardashian, New Contributing Beauty EditorZipping between backstage at New York Fashion Week shows is always a treat, but the biggest thrill of my recent trip was OK! Magazine‘s star-studded fete (Perez Hilton and Kelly Rowland made cameos) to celebrate the addition of new Contributing Beauty Editor, Kim Kardashian.

I couldn’t believe my luck when the opportunity to attend presented itself, and I found myself shaking when Amber and I arrived at The Griffin at the exact moment Kim took her spot on the red carpet.

Kim looked resplendent in a Badgley Mischka gown. Her flawless face was the handiwork of her makeup artist, and my beauty buddy, Mario Dedivanovic.

Hairstylist Rolondo, who I interviewed the following day (stay tuned for that video), created a 40′s finger-waved do.

After Kim thanked the crowd, lady luck smiled on Amber and me, and we found a place to sit and Tweet our good fortune.

Midway through the party, as we noshed on mini pink cupcakes, the tragic news broke that the world had lost the incomparable Patrick Swayze. The DJ seamlessly transitioned from current jams into a Dirty Dancing medley. Though the shindig ended on a meloncholy note, I had the time of my life…and I owe it all to you oo oooo, Miss Kim.

New York Fashion Week: Beauty Blogger Tweet-Up

Beauty+Blogger+Extravaganza New York Fashion Week: Beauty Blogger Tweet Up

On Saturday, I attended a beauty blogger tweet-up at the W Hotel in NYC, organized by Lianne Farbes (of The Makeup Girl) and Paul Baranda (of beyond Beyond Beauty Basics). Party sponsors included Caress, Suave, Pond’s, Q-tips, Degree Women, Ted Gibson, crazylibellule and the poppies, and FragranceNet.com.

Covering hair and makeup backstage at the Fashion Week shows is always exciting, but I must admit that my favorite Fashion Week experiences involve meeting new bloggers and catching up with old friends.
