New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009

lela+rose+fall+2009 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009For her Fall 2009 collection, Lela Rose drew inspiration from the rainforest – and the creepy crawlies that call it home. To help transform the models into chic, tropics-trekking entomologists, Lela enlisted the help of two of the biggest names in the beauty business.

Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow (for Beauty.com) used products from Stila Cosmetics to reinforce the rainforest theme. Tina prepped the skin with Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, Perfecting Concealer and Sheer Pressed Powder.

“The skin is fresh and dewy, not dead and matte,” Tina explained. “I’m so excited to have the skin be healthy and shiny and glowing.”

When I asked if dewy skin was an emerging trend for Fall, Tina confessed that she’s ready to see the skin again. “I love the idea of sheen. I love seeing the skin, and powder usually takes that away. This morning, we’re only applying powder to the t-zone.”

 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009Models’ lids were painted with gold and green shadows from the Precious Pearl Palette and lined in Kajal Eye Liner (in Emerald and Pearl) along with Stila Smudge Pot in Jade – to mimic the the “iridescent, pearlescent shell of a beetle.”

Cheeks were earthily flushed, using Convertible Color in Camellia and pouts glossed with Lip Glaze in Praline. Eyeshadow in Constellation and Venus (new shades) were brushed over brows and high on the cheekbones to give the face definition and impart a jungle-like wetness to the look.

I wasn’t surprised to see mane magician Ted Gibson backstage, as he and Lela love to collaborate. For the past two seasons, I have chatted with Ted backstage at Lela Rose – and he always serves up something fierce.

Every fashion week, I am amazed by his conceptual (yet accessible) hairstyles…and this season’s coiffure made me heart Ted all the more.

 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Lela Rose, Fall 2009While Tina Turnbow was inspired by the beetle, Ted found his muse in Odonata – aka the dragonfly.

To create the insect-inspired do, Ted created a center part, then swept hair back into a “youthful ponytail.” The voluminous crown was created using Build It. Tame It Shine Lotion smoothed the hair and calmed flyaways. The ponytail was coiled and blasted with heat from a hair dryer (air concentrator nozzle on), to give the hair texture.

Finally, the twisted tail was set with Beautiful Hold Hairspray, which smells so wondorous that you want to spray it on – whether or not your hair needs help staying put.

New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009

bodkin New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009
On Monday, I traveled to The Horticultural Society in NYC to report from backstage at Bodkin, a still relatively green collection – designed in accordance with principles of sustainability in materials and production methods. For the Fall 2009 line, Bodkin found a natural partner in Aveda, a brand that strives to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility – not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009I had an opportunity to speak with John Reyman, lead hairstylist for Aveda, about the inspiration and seasonal trends.

“The idea was a little bed-heady…a little like a girl has been outside all day and her hair is a little wind-blown, but at the same time very healthy and very well taken care of. It looks shiny and it looks glossy, but it doesn’t look overworked or overdone. Like she cares but she doesn’t care too much – so kind of that balance. So the idea was we just put a very loose, loose wave in there with some Volumizing Tonic and then we finished it, actually, with the men’s grooming cream to give it a little bit of texture and some shine.”

For Fall 2009, John said, “A lot of people are putting ponytails in the hair. I think we’re really seeing cleaner hair. The last couple of seasons, we’ve seen really textured, really frizzy, really fuzzy hair…almost like the girl didn’t care at all. And I think as the economy sort of changes, people want to look and feel more put-together – and so the hairstyles are really reflecting that…a little cleaner, a little more refined.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009
Andrea Harrison, lead makeup artist for Aveda described the Bodkin Fall 2009 look as really simple and pretty. “She’s so naturally gorgeous. She really has been running around all day…with cold, flushed pretty cheeks. No powder on her skin. Just a very healthy, very natural kinda dewy skin. On the eyes, there’s a light, shimmer. You can really see the skin through it. It’s our Moonstone shimmer, and it’s nice and really smooth. Black mascara just on the top lashes. Just a polished brow which is just really lightly filled in…nothing that you would really look at and say, ‘Oh, that’s hard.’ And Berry Lip Tint on the lips, so it’s very fresh – again, like she’s just been running around. Just an easy look that anybody could duplicate quickly. It would be great for young girls, older, anybody.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009When asked about key trends for Fall 2009, Andrea said, “One thing that you’re seeing everywhere is that the models are all growing out their eyebrows. It seems like another popular trend is, instead of, a smoky eye and a dark lip – you just see one feature that they’ve picked to focus on. Whether it’s eyebrows or just cheeks or just mascara or just lips. So instead of having the full complicated look. So it would be great for everybody. Good for the average woman to pick their favorite feature.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009Before concluding the interview, I asked Andrea to name three Aveda products that every women should have in her beauty arsenal. “One thing is for certain when it comes to makeup…the key to good makeup is beautiful skin. So you always want to make sure that you’re using great skin products. I personally love our Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme. I use that on every model before a photo shoot or runway just because you can always add powder if you feel like it’s too much, but it really just makes the makeup go on beautifully. The other thing is mascara…to me, it can make a look that on it’s own. Sometimes you don’t need to anything else. And skin…I really see that being a trend. I love our Tinted Moisturizer; it’s got SPF 15 in it and it’s nice because you can still the skin underneath it. So anybody can wear it easily. Just make sure you match your skin tone. It’s nice and sheer, so everybody can find their skin tone easily.”

New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

donna+karan New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009
Backstage at Donna Karan, I chatted up lead makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury about the vision and aesthetic. “The look today at Donna Karan came to be because we were looking at these 1920’s and 30’s sepia-toned photographs, and I just loved that there was something modern about it. So we wanted to translate that to a modern Donna Karan girl,” Charlotte explained. “We put gloss on the eye, which has a little bit of sepia and black in it, with flecks of gold through it. And it’s wet, so it’s a modern texture. It goes all the way up to the eyebrow and there’s no form to it…it’s just a great big shadow with a wet, modern texture. We’re brushing up the eyebrows. We’re highlighting the top of the cheekbones and the nose with an iridescent cream (Cream Colour Base in Pearl), which brings a wonderful light to the face. And we’re putting a little bit of a beige-y kind of lipstick (Half And Half Lipstick) – very neutral, quite light on the lips. And a tiny bit of the Reflects highlighter on the bow of the lips.”

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

I ran into my old pal Victor C, Senior Artist for MAC – who provided additional insight into the inspiration and products. “There is a mushroomy shade on the eyes, Cream Colour Base in Dusk. And on top of it, Charlotte put a gloss. The gloss is actually intended for the lips and it’s going to be coming out in a collection focusing on the color black. So this gloss has an emerald green pearl in it and it enhances the mushroom color of the Cream Colour Base. Dusk is kinda silvery and gives the illusion that there’s a shadow on the eye. I think it’s what’s kind of interesting about shadows is sometimes shadows are meant to enhance bone structure or bring out the prettiness. But in this case, the shadows are giving the face a more grown-up look. Not just on this show – there are a lot of shows that are using grays and mushroom tones. Not the blink blink, wink wink kind of pretty. It’s a lot more like the 1930’s Hollywood pictures where the girls might have been 21 years old, but they look really mature – like they’ve had life experience.”

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

Victor let me play around with and swatch the Bling black gloss from the upcoming black collection.

Victor continued, “We’re also doing really beautiful skin; skin that just shines with the light, no matter what direction you turn. It’s like, again, 1930’s Hollywood headshots. On the lip, it’s lightly natural with a little bit of shimmer on the bow of the lip.”

When I asked Victor about trends for fall, he replied, “I see a lot of black being used. I’m calling it ‘perfect penmanship.’ I’m going to try to create that as a trend, myself, because a lot of the lines have been perfect and very graphic. Last season, the look was Kate Moss, rock and roll – like she slept in her makeup. Now it’s all about graphic precision, which I think is going to be an emerging trend.”

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

I didn’t get an opportunity to interview lead hairstylist Eugene Souleiman (working with Wella Professional). His styles were so intricate and laborious, he had absolutely no time for idle chit chat. The finished look was architectural and breathtaking. I’ve seen a lot of pretty hairdos at Fashion Week shows…but this was simply inspired. Each models’ hair was adorned with over 100 u-shaped hair pins! Can you even believe such things are possible?

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

 New York Fashion Week: Donna Karan, Fall 2009

Finally, I spoke to Creative Nail Design‘s Lulu Cooper about nails. As she applied CND Serenity to one model’s nails, she explained that it was chosen for its “clean, buff look.” The nail shape was a slight almond. “Not too pointed and definitely not square,” she said. “The square shape is for a younger girl. The almond-shaped nail is for a more mature, more sophisticated woman.”

New York Fashion Week: Baby Phat, Fall 2009

baby+phat2 New York Fashion Week: Baby Phat, Fall 2009

For Baby Phat Fall 2009, Kimora Lee Simmons’ muse was the First Lady. “The inspiration is very sexy, curly hair but the length is Michelle Obama,” said Odile Gilbert, lead hairstylist. To achieve the look, models’ hair was put in rollers, teased within an inch of its life and shellac-ed with hairspray. When I asked if big hair will be a trend for fall, Odile cheekily answered, “It’s always a trend.”

model+at+baby+phat+fall+2009 New York Fashion Week: Baby Phat, Fall 2009

“We’re inspired by Michelle Obama,” said James Kaliardos, lead artist for MAC. “I mean, when else can you be inspired by a First Lady? I think she’s so inspiring and so great and so stylish. And she wears Isabella Toledo. Kimora wanted a soft, pretty, classic look. It’s like a soft, pretty peachy version. There’s a little glamour and a little glitter on the eyelid, which Michelle probably won’t do…so it’s a soft, pretty sculpted beautiful look. It’s not as over the top…last time it was Cher, and that’s like hyper glam. This is a little bit more pulled back, a little bit more sophisticated. We’re scuplting and shaping under the cheekbones and in the crease of the eyelid.”

To create the Michelle-inspired makeup, makeup artists used Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation, gold eye shadow, Cremesheen Glass lipgloss in Partial Pink, Pink Swoon Powder Blush and Zoom Lash Mascara. Individual eyelashes were applied to create a feathery and soft effect, which is “less drag queeny than a full strip,” James explained.

 New York Fashion Week: Baby Phat, Fall 2009

Angi Wingle from CND called the Baby Phat Fall 2009 nail look “All-American girl with edge.” “The theme is the Great Depression,” she said…so the nails had a pearlized metallic finish – which was achieved by layering Gold Chrome (to be released in Fall 2009) over Iced Capuccino. The nails were meant to look like jewelry…”to accent the collection, like buttons on a jacket.”

New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World

barbie runway show New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World

I’m a blond little girl, in the fantasy world
Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly
You’re my doll, rock’n’roll, feel the glamour and pain,
Kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky…
You can touch, you can play, if you say: “I’m always yours”

I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world
Life is plastic, it’s fantastic!
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

To commemorate her 50th birthday, Barbie partied like it’s 1959, 2009 and 2059. Yesterday, Barbie took Manhattan and staged the most anticipated fashion week show in forev. 50 celebrated designers showcased one-of-a-kind, adult-size creations inspired by the renowned fashion doll. The epic fashion event celebrated the past, present and future of fashion, with Barbie as the muse; she’s once, twice, three times a lady.

 New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World

Backstage at Barbie, I spoke to Charlotte Tilbury, lead makeup artist for Stila. She told me that the looks were divided into three sections: Past Barbie, Present Barbie and Futuristic Barbie.

 New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World

Barbie Present New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World“Past is a 50’s dominatrix with pure red lips and really high-gloss pink-red gloss. A late 50’s black cat liquid eye with a little bit of contouring and shimmering white highlights. And a little bit of a filled in eyebrow,” she said.

“Barbie from the present is very Sharon Tate doll-looking; lots of lilacs and soft pinks, whites and dove grays – and beigy, pale pink glossy lips.”

“Futuristic Barbie looks like she’s wearing a Venetian mask or going to a Venetian ball. She’s got a butterfly be-dazzled eye with feathers, sequins, and electric blue glitter. Like a peacock butterfly with a beige Bardot gloss.”

Charlotte added, “Barbie was always my favorite game when I was younger. And being in fashion and making up models feels like you’re still playing Barbie. But today is so much fun. I get to live a little bit more of my fantasy.”

I asked Charlotte how these runway looks can be translated for real life, to which she replied:

 New York Fashion Week: I’m A Barbie Girl, In The Barbie World“The present and the past are really great looks for real women. For the futuristic look, if you wanted to take the fabulous electric shimmery blue shadow with black eyeliner and did that with a beigy gloss lip, it would be a fantastic look also for real women.”

When asked why she thinks Barbie continues to be an icon, Charlotte answered, “She leggy, she’s got a waist, she’s got fabulous perky boobs, she’s got big blonde hair, huge big doe eyes, glossy lips and she never really speaks.”

For Past Barbie, Orlanda Pita (for T3) styled exaggerated ponytails and blunt bangs, reminiscent of vintage Barbie with the chevron striped swimsuit. He teased the models’ hair, a la Valley of the Dolls, for Present Barbie – using Plump and Control sprays. Futuristic Barbies sported larger-than-life buns, embellished with braided extensions.

CND was responsible for the dollicious manicures. As you can see in the photo below, all of the artifical nails have an elongated almond shape. CND lead nail technician, Amanda Fontanarrosa, gave me the skinny on the show’s nail looks…and shared some pro secrets.

Past Barbie: Wildfire #111
Present Barbie – Hot Pop Pink #348
Futuristic Barbie: French manicure, evolving into a lucite tip

“If a model smudges a nail at the last minute backstage, I simply glide a tiny bit of acetone over the nail with the pad of my finger to smooth out the enamel,” Amanda shared. “Wafting your hands or blowing on wet enamelk does NOT speed up drying time, instead it slows it down. That’s why we use Solar Speed Spray to control the flow of oxygen over enamel, helping it to dry faster.”

Somewhere between a coy girl and sexy siren, MAC Hello Kitty represents the desire in all of us to be both innocent and mischievous. More Angelina Jolie than Shirley Temple, the feisty new color collection takes its inspiration from the complex, yet elegantly feminine sensibility.

In celebration of the partnership, MAC has taken it to the stylish next level and tapped into its fashion reservoir of friends and assembled a team of 30 internationally renowned designers, to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspired by the Hello Kitty collection.

 MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big CityMAC asked designers to work within the color palette of the Hello Kitty collection of black, grey, white and pink and posed the question, “What would MAC Hello Kitty wear if she were a fashionista?” Designers were given creative freedom to create pieces in their own aesthetic and on February 5th in New York, MAC unveiled the exclusive designs to the world with a global Hello Kitty cocktail party and fashion exhibit showcasing the ensembles.

It was MAC Hello Kitty Commotion! My bestie, Amber, was in attendance. Click here to get the inside scoop (and see a pic of her encounter with a certain celeb from MTV’s The City).

The MAC Hello Kitty fashion designer team includes the very talented; Blugirl, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Dress33, Elie Saab, Emanuel Ungaro, General Idea – Bum Suk Choi, Giles, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Kai Kühne, Kate Sylvester, Katy England, Manish Arora, Marchesa, Miro, Opening Ceremony, Qiu Hao, Rosa Cha, Ruffian, Sang Beg Ha, Shu-Chi Huang, Sinha Stanic, Tadashi Shoji, The Blonds, threeasFOUR, Vicente Villarin, Yigal Azrouel, Zac Posen, and Zimmermann.

Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obama’s Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"

michelle+obama+inauguration Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obamas Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"Jason Wu hit the fashion lottery tonight. In December, the 26-year old Tawainese-American designer submitted three dresses to Michelle Obama for consideration, but considered himself a long-shot. Wu had no idea that Michelle Obama had chosen his one-shouldered, embellished, off-white gown until the President and First Lady took the stage at the Neighborhood Ball. “I found out tonight…along with the rest of the world,” Wu told CNN.

“It’s thrilling, it’s emotional and it’s inspiring. For a young designer, I couldn’t ask for anything more than this. It’s my dream come true.”

michelle+obama+jason+wu Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obamas Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"Wu said he created the dress to reflect the first couple and the new administration. He wanted to give Michelle a gown with a “dream-like quality.”

On inauguration night, Wu won’t be celebrating his newfound celebrity. He doesn’t have time. With New York Fashion Week only three weeks away, he will be burning the midnight oil – working on his Fall 2009 collection.

When asked his thoughts about Michelle Obama’s status as an emerging style icon, Wu said, “She’s versatile. She can do it all. She is amazing. She has her own sense of style and there’s nothing better than that.”

helena+de+natalio Upcoming Sales at Ideeli.com
Helena De Natalio
As the only woman Madonna would ever label a fashion role model, Eva Peron put Argentine women on the map as diehard style mavens. Some 60 years later, South American women continue to be known for their creativity and style. This fact hasn’t escaped American handbag designer Helen Hoppock. After joining the Peace Corps and living in Natalio, Paraguay for two years, American handbag designer Helen Hoppock fell in love with the handcrafted leather goods found throughout the continent. Working with a local seamstress inspired her to combine her deep interest in social responsibility with her devotion to local craftsmanship. In 2005, the talented and industrious Hoppock moved to Buenos Aires to create a line of handbags that would marry fierce fashion attitude with a true humanitarian spirit. Soon enough, the Helena de Natalio line was born. Using only the finest Argentine leather, the workers at Helena de Natalio are given fair wages, good working conditions and humane benefits. And the bags, with their unique detailing and gorgeous color palate, couldn’t be chicer. This event is scheduled to start on Thursday, January 8th and will run for 36 hours. Prices for this event start at $110.

ferragamo Upcoming Sales at Ideeli.com
Salvatore Ferragamo
Born in Bonito in 1898, Salvatore Ferragamo made his first creation slippers for his sisters to wear to their confirmation – at age nine. His love of fashion only grew, and he studied shoemaking in Naples for a year before heading to Boston to join his brothers at work in a cowboy boot factory. Yearning for more, he convinced his brothers to relocate to California to create luxurious made-to-measure shoes for Hollywood’s glitterati. The rest, as they say, is history. Soon after setting up shop, Ferragamo established a celebrity following and began a long period of designing for the cinema. The most powerful and glamorous women, from Eva Peron to Marilyn Monroe, flocked to him, establishing him as the “Shoemaker to the Stars.” From here, his label expanded to include ready-to-wear and accessories. While each piece is unique in styling, all are unified by an overarching attention to detail and commitment to craftsmanship. This event is scheduled to start on Wednesday, January 7th and will run for 36 hours.
