#NYFW ….Show Time!

 

Day 2 – Thrilled I was invited to attend the Harpers Icons Party hosted by Carine Roitfeld. Held at the Plaza Hotel, the guest list was incredible!  Heidi Klum , Shanina Shaik,Emily Ratajkowski, Hailey Baldwin and the Kardashian/Jenner clan were all there. Kanye West also performed – such a great atmosphere!

I wore an outfit by my favourite designer, David Koma with Saint Laurent shoes and a vintage clutch.

Day 3 – Jonathan Simkhai –  I sat with the super stylish Olivia Palermo, to see his fabulous SS17 collection. Crisp whites, flowing ivory’s and delicate blues were the focus – really beautiful spring pieces , definitely have my eye on a few for next year!

Wang then showed a surprise collaboration with Adidas, in a finale full of slightly tweaked sportswear the brand is known for: track pants, golf polos, rip-away athletic pants and basketball shorts. They were all done in jet black with the Adidas logo flipped upside down.

Wimbledon 2016

I was delighted to attend Day 1 of Wimbledon with Evian Water last week. It was great to see Yasmin and Amber Le Bon, Laura Whitmore and of course the lovely Erin O’Connor. I also got to meet , and get a cheeky selfie with, the incredibly talented Sam Smith who I am a huge fan of.

We all watched a tense match between Djokovic and Wade on Court 1 – so lucky with the weather!

NYFW16

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!                                                                                                                               JONATHAN SIMKHAI-Hannah Thomson-61JS                                                                            

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!
