THE SCENE
Big Beauty Bash For FNO at Sephora

It was a red carpet experience last night at Fashion's Night Out at Sephora on 5th Avenue. With complimentary treatments and treats, it was certainly pappering you could get used to. Eager guests stuck it out on the line that extended to both sides of the double doors, before entering an overwhelming and lively scene.

Starting at 6 p.m. Dr. Gross, founder of Dr. Gross Skincare, wowed the crowd with his skin consultations which normally cost around $250. His best tip for a girl after a night on the town like this: never go to sleep with makeup on, drink lots of water and don't drink coffee after 4 p.m. so that you can catch up with sleep the following night.

THE SCENE
Sweet and Sexy Silvio Liu

The feminine charm meets a touch of masculine tailoring at the Silvio Liu Model Presentation. Sexy, formfitting dresses paired with short, tailored jackets and flowing skirts with a cummerbund waist were just a couple examples in the 19-look Spring 2011 collection. Perfect for a first date, Silvio Liu dresses the coquette who wants to look smashing but keep it tasteful; show some leg in a short hem, but be able to cover her shoulders (that is, if her date doesn't offer his coat).

It's official: Lanvin for H&M


Get ready for another fabulous collaboration. H&M will team up with Lanvin this holiday season to bring front-row fashion to mainstream markets.

Creative director, Alber Elbaz, expressed that he would "never do a mass-market collection," but his tune has changed. "H&M approached us to collaborate, and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less," he said.

An ambiguous teaser video was released just a few short days ago which left many wondering who the next collaborator could be. Although the final decision was not intended to be announced until September 9th, the announcement was prematurely delivered today.

Kim and Kourtney have already been spotted on the streets of Beverly Hills wearing some of the pieces from K Dash by Kardashian. Kim, seen here, wears the faux fur trimmed sweater vest with gray knit leggings and Kourtney, the leopard belted tunic, all featured in K Dash.
