The fashion month has started! First Stop New York Fashion Week. I love attending the shows as I get inspiration for new make-up looks and also keeping up to speed with designers and thinking of future collaborations for my brands.
I kicked off NYFW with the Alexander Wang show which was edgy and urban. I bumped into Kylie Jenner on the front row, I haven’t seen her since our photoshoot in LA in December and always good to see her.
Victoria Beckham’s show had a big focus on corsets but adding her new modern twist. Her collection showed how her own personal style has evolved –concentrating on tailoring, heritage fabrics, volume and of course knits! Stand out look for me was definitely the black belted cutaway corset teamed with a monochrome diamond print skirt.
The highlight of my trip was our very own designer partner for this NYFW – Jonathan Simkhai, 2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner. I was so proud that Rodial was the official skincare partner for his show! Jonathan is an expert in contouring the body with his use of feminine lace, adding fur and fringing. I loved the nudes with dewy skin and messy, natural ponytails – great look for spring!
I was in great company too, sharing the front row with Anna Wintour and Olivia Palermo. Olivia was of course, her usual glamorous self, rocking a gorgeous camel fur trimmed coat – perfect for the NYC winter.
I also stopped by the Rachel Zoe presentation. I have always been a fan of Rachel, she’s super talented and it’s so great to see her own brand grow.
Big thank you to the fabulous Jason & Melissa for my hair & make-up!
