Uptown Girl

Uptown girl / She’s my uptown girl / You know I’m in love / With an uptown girl…

Fall Fashion is dripping in gold…we got together with LoveGold and stylist Micaela Erlanger to put together a story of 5 different women’s styles for our new fall season. Each day this week we will take our muse Devon and dress her in fall trends from uptown chic to downtown punk. I can’t wait to hear which golden girl style you loved best!

Uptown Girl

The Park Avenue princess, she keeps it ladylike with multiple gold chains. It’s hard not to watch her sweep down the sidewalks of Upper Manhattan, wondering where she’s going today…

How About We…

You know, Kevin and I often get dressed up for our dates, so I thought it might be fun to do something totally new and different – where my hair had to be tied back, comfy cotton clothes were the norm, and close-toed shoes were a must. If you follow our life here, or on Instagram or Tumblr, you know we love adventure and new experiences. I first heard about HowAboutWe from our assistant who is in the throes of the NYC dating scene (which I love to enquire about on a weekly basis). She introduced me to the part of the site where couples can choose amazing tailored dates to encourage people to “stay in love”…and they are awesome. All the details are taken care of, so it’s completely fool-proof and you can just focus on the fun part!

I chose glass blowing because it was totally different from anything we have ever done. I thought it would be terribly romantic to have the glasses we would create on the date (which turned out so hysterically lopsided that it’s charming and makes us giggle each time we look at them) in our new studio to remind us of the fun we had. I guess that makes me sentimental…but you already knew that.

Photographing NYFW

New York Fashion Week. What a beast.

You really find out your limits when you are thrown into this aspect of the fashion world: 20 hour workdays, fast, fast turnaround for image delivery, and speedy blog posts, scaling up and down Manhattan to a million different venues (despite the popular idea that most of Fashion Week happens at the tents of Lincoln Center). Here are some things I’ve learned in the past few years I’ve been privy to witnessing and photographing this industry occasion….

I now dress reasonably. The last thing I want is for my outfit to get in the way of my job. I try to keep it to basics. Ferragamo flats, men’s button ups, black turtlenecks (hello Steve), dark sunglasses and a good wristwatch…and so I don’t feel like a total dude, my camera bag is as chic as it comes.

Always keep it simple. I only carry that day’s invites, phone for all the Instas, the smallest wallet I could find, a little fashion notebook for thoughts on the collections, my signature red lipstick, GUM (you talk to so many people), perfume to refresh before a social event, my 50mm & 24-70mm lens, 5DMarkIII, lots of camera cards, sunnies to hide your tired eyes, and a Veuve Clicquot folding fan. Such small venues.. so many people… usually not enough air. It’s the most important thing.

Classic Beauty

We’ve been hearing for a while that orange is the new black, but this season’s fashion week absolutely proved it. Bright orange lips and nails were all over the runway, showing us that it’s time to break this color out!

Backstage at the DKNY show, it was all about the lip. Created using a mixture of Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in #880 Electric Orange and #890 Neon Red, it was vivid and eye-catching without being overwhelming. Lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury explained that applying the lipstick directly from the tube and then softening the edges with a finger helps take down the intensity.

To allow the lips to keep the spotlight, Tilbury kept the skin looking fresh and dewy with Dream Lumi Concealer and FIT me! Pressed Powder. The light touch of blush was, literally, a touch – Tilbury added Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale with her fingertips.
