MET Gala 2015

MET_GALA_2015_02

Once again I had the privilege to cover the red carpet with the Met Museum‘s social media team capturing what is the coined “the party of the year” for the museum’s new fashion exhibition China Through the Looking Glass. From gowns that took  two years to create, to ones that appear completely see-though, it was one breathtaking moment after the next and I’m happy to share with you images from the front lines, captured using my iPhone 6, of my favorite Met Gala 2015 moments….

Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’Art collection

Paris-Salzburg_Chanel__02

Chanel came to New York recently and transported us in only a way Chanel could: to an 18th-century castle in Salzburg, Austria. As CHANEL stated “The Paris-Salzburg collection was inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s contemporary take on Tyrolean tradition, Austrian history and Mademoiselle Chanel’s stay in Austria, which led to the creation of the iconic Chanel jacket.” In contrast to the tomboy elegance of daytime coats, the cocktail evening attire is delicately dramatic and feminine with those couture touches we learned about last October.

The Park Ave Armory was filled with banquettes of formal sofas, claw foot coffee tables with formal flower arrangements, crown molded walls and dimly lit sconces in a maze the models twisted and turned through, passed Beyoncé, in front of Anna, take a right at Pharell, and left by Dakota Johnson. It’s was grand and glam, opulent and who’s who… but isn’t it always when it’s for Chanel?

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 collection show at New York Fashion Week This might just be the coziest thing I’ve ever seen walk down the runways of New York Fashion Week. Ralph Lauren managed to perfectly balance the modern day woman that wants to look polished but comfortable, classic but current, with a life that is both urban and rural. I loved the creams, tans, chocolates, sage and gold which automatically puts you in the mood for autumn leaves and crackling fires. The first heart-stopping moments for me was a spectacular ivory lace gown with a victorian neck collar that reminded me of this old fashioned romance. Then, in total Americana glamour, he closed the show with the perfect golden goddess gown and I was once again, living in a Ralph Lauren world.

… before the show I went backstage to shoot some of the looks up close and personal which are mixed in below with my favorite runway moments!

Remembering Oscar de la Renta

cocoleg615

On the day an American icon passed away I found myself in the throws of living in one of his visions. It was quite a surreal experience to be dining with Mr. Oscar de la Renta’s friends at the luxury resort he co-owned and designed when news of his passing came to me through a social media alert on my phone. I read the comment out loud in disbelief and shock after spending a day speaking of him so often. Our dinner companions that evening had known and looked at us with great sadness when we discovered it at that moment. In a true act of elegance, they told us it wasn’t their place to make the announcement until his wife and family made an official statement. Such respect, a trait so few people excersie but was so elegantly found in Mr. de la Renta’s character.

We all shared Oscar stories from our experiences with him, I loved seeing how his warmth had affected their lives. For me, I took a moment to remember the first time I met him and getting a glimpse behind the scenes at the design house that makes every girl’s dream dresses. I feel so fortunate to have photographed him, created Cinemagraphs with his collections, photographed his ladylike pieces in fashion shoots, made memories with friends in Oscar, to having the insane honor of wearing his gowns on very special occasions.

We raised our glasses to a great man who did nothing but make women feel beautiful and teach us a thing or two about life.
