Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Puttin’ On The Glitz: Felix Rey Spring 2010

 Puttin On The Glitz: Felix Rey Spring 2010A few weeks ago, while in New York for Fashion Week, I popped by the Bryant Park Hotel for a sneak peek of the Felix Rey Spring 2010 collection.

The brand’s signature details (bows, leopard, and hardware – oh my!) are back – and better than ever. But what sets these handbags and accessories apart from previous collections is the razzle dazzle factor. Using sequins and metal mesh, co-founders Lily Rafii Band and Sulaika Zarrouk (above left) have fashioned impossibly chic accessories that seamlessly transition from day to night.

Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty Champions

Posted on by daneen in Fashion Week, Hair Color | Leave a comment

amber+nancy+jason+backe+daneen+pastis Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty ChampionsLast week while in town for New York Fashion Week, I shared a delish breakfast with beauty friends Amber, Nancy and my mane man, Jason Backe.

You might remember Jason from a post earlier this year, when the two of us hung out watching the Grammys – and he up and decided to dye my hair.

Jason is one of the most sought after colorists in New York, where he co-owns the Ted Gibson Salon. His list of celebrity clients (Anne Hathaway, Renée Zellweger, Amerie, Idina Menzel, Eltra Rossalini, and Lake Bell) reads like an issue of Us Magazine.

As if it’s even possible, Jason’s schedule book is about to get even more, well, booked. In the October 2009 issue of Allure Magazine, he was named “the best of the best.” If you’re in or passing through the NYC area, do yourself a favor and make an appointment. Get in where you fit in. Jason’s worth the wait.

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: Rebecca Taylor, Spring 2010

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Fashion Week | Leave a comment

rebecca+taylor+beauty+makeup+spring+2010 New York Fashion Week: Rebecca Taylor, Spring 2010At the Rebecca Taylor New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 show, the makeup took its inspiration from the 1940s.

“This woman is very strong, sensual, sophisticated and confident,” said Key Makeup Artist Rie Omoto. “The woman who wears these clothes doesn’t have to try hard to show how sexy she is.”

Rie started with a sheer, dewy base (achieved with MAC Face and Body Foundation, Select Moisturecover Concealer, and Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder).

Chiseled cheeks were created using MAC Sculpt Powder. Rie smudged MAC Costa Riche Eye Kohl into the crease of the eye, then layered a new MAC Pigment on top. Eyes were finished with a coat of with MAC Zoom Lash Mascara on top and bottom lashes.

The matte coral lip (MAC Pigment in Fire Orange layered with Basic Red Paint Stick) provided a punchy contrast to the shimmering skin.

Using Cutler Treatment Spray, Fly-Away Control Stick, and Redken Workforce 09 Flexible Volumizing Spray, Head Hairstylist Dai Michishita crafted evening-inspired coiffs to flatter the feminine and floaty frocks. By pulling hair back into a low pony and fashioning sleek chignons resembling bowties, Dai created a look that Rodney Cutler, founder of the Cutler Salon, called “clean, beautiful and young.”

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.
