Supermodel Comfort

Carolyn_Murphy_UGG__02

You know her face.  A fashion darling she’s a cover girl, shot for campaigns with Estée Lauder and Tiffany & Co, and this fall is starring in the new stunning Oscar de la Renta ads.

But what you don’t see behind this classic American beauty is a woman who likes to surf out in Montauk and throw on a pair of warm soft UGG boots when she emerges from the cold North Atlantic ocean. So it was no surprise when UGG tapped her to be the face of their new Classic Luxe Collection, a more refined fashion forward take on the comfort of UGG boots. I spoke to Carolyn about how a woman as chic and timeless as she is can pull off an UGG moment and she suggested wearing the new Abree style this fall “with a pair of leather pants, crisp button down and wool coat so now you don’t have to be afraid to wear your UGG boots out of the house.” Comfort can be a beautiful thing.

Above, Carolyn Murphy photographed in New York City in UGG’s Abree boot in black styled with white Miachel Kors pants and a Stella McCartney blazer.

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!
