TOP TEN LOOKS OF FASHION MONTH (SS15 RTW)

I’ve gotta be straight-up with you: during 90% of Fashion Month, I found myself bored out of my mind by the looks walking the Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear runways. It kind of popped my “Fashion Week designers can do no wrong” bubble; before this season, I’ve been absolutely enthralled by just about every single fashion show during every single season. Instead of my usual drooling over dresses and ear-to-ear grins at punk rock frocks, I felt a little like I was wasting my time from September 2 to October 1.

Don’t close out of your internet browser, though! The other 10%? Absolutely magical. In fact, they were some of the most awe-inspiring, unabashedly creative looks I’ve ever seen. And though it was easier to narrow down my favorite looks to a clean Top 10 this time, it doesn’t mean they don’t deserve all of my – and your! – undying love. Prepare to bow down. Seriously, we’re not worthy. (more…)

The lucky ladies who make it on an episode receive a total life recharge, from new makeup and clothes to a home re-design and soul coaching.

I got the chance to interview the fabulous Tracy Balan, the show’s resident beauty guru. Her resume includes everything from glamorous hairstylist to injured war veteran, so naturally I needed to find out more about this fascinating lady’s life – and, duh, favorite beauty products. Read on for an inside look at our Q&A sesh! (more…)

A LESSON FROM NYC’S TELEVISION IT GIRLS

Allow me to brand an image into your mind’s eye: cool-girl, Manhattan goddess slings on her trunk show markdown Prada heels on her way to her all-too glamorous uptown job, catching the train with a bagel in hand (reduced fat cream cheese, of course) and not a hair out of place. (more…)
