We all know that the best way to care for our skin is to follow a strict skincare regimen twice a day. For a brilliant, glowing complexion, it’s crucial to use quality products on a regular basis. Yes, that means at every night—especially those late party nights—even when you come home feeling too tired to take off your shoes. So what can we do to motivate ourselves to really take care of our skin? What if one of our favorite, super fun to use makeup brands developed an equally glamorous skincare line? One so luxurious we couldn’t wait to come home and pamper ourselves. Well, good news, girls. NARSskin has arrived!
The Academy Award winner’s next starring role won't be in a feature film, rather on television. Cruz will be making an appearance in nationwide public service announcements for Saks' Key to the Cure Campaign wearing limited-edition t-shirts designed by Carolina Herrera. The stylish tees were created in an effort to raise awareness for women’s cancer research. Herrera’s designs don a map of the world with teeny, tiny hearts scattered across it.
The Saks Fifth Avenue New York flagship location is renovating and expanding their renowned eighth-floor shoe department. The most exciting new addition? A first-of-its-kind, Louis Vuitton exclusive shoe salon to be unveiled late this September. Similar to the handbag/leather goods and ready-to-wear salons located in the department store, the shoe salon will be directly operated by the brand. The new venture reflects Louis Vuitton’s growing shoe category and will become the leading location for footwear, joining the 67 LV stores that currently carry an assortment.
The finale of NBC's Fashion Star concluded a knock-out first season Tuesday night as 4.9 million viewers bit their nails in the anticipation of the first ever Fashion Star winner.
Kara Laricks came into the competition as an unlikely winner, as she started out designing ties, and truthfully, we didn’t even think she’d make it past the first round! But thanks to the fashion industry panel of judges (Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos, & Nicole Richie) Laricks was saved and ultimately stepped her game up, improving by leaps and bounds episode after first episode, and was finally pronounced the winner.

It can be easy to think that NYFW is all about exclusivity—we’re pretty sure we had to submit our press credentials to get access to the bathroom last year—but while most of the shows remain industry-only in order to maintain some semblance of order, more and more events outside of the Lincoln Center are being opened up to the public. Whether you’re looking to supplement your stack of invites with a few final events or just a casual fashionista looking to jump into the sartorial fray, you’ll be welcomed with open arms at the events below (some ticket purchase or RSVP required)!
As cliché as it sounds- it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Even scientifically speaking- shopping produces endorphins- our happiness drug; is there any other time that we shop more than just before Christmas? That, paired with the out-of-this-world adverts kindly created by NYC classics like Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue, have us practically eating out of the palm of their deliciously gorgeous, string-lit, ornament-strewn, hand. But before any holiday purchases are made, some window shopping is in order. The window displays of NYC are a little piece of magic created intricately for anyone who still believes in Christmas. And while yes, it’s a ploy to get you inside, you can still enjoy the beauty for what it’s worth- and maybe score some incredible stocking stuffers (Think Bendel bangle or Serendipity-esque gloves from Bloomies).
Many shops all over the country decorate for the coming holiday season. Festive displays of red and green, tiny trees, Santa Claus and presents make their way into nearly every store we walk into for the next month. In New York, however, window displays are something to marvel at. Each year designers and artists compete in an elaborate flourish of skill to create the most beautiful window displays of the year. They’re a well known, if a little unconventional, tourist attraction for those visiting the city in the winter.
Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Tiffany, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman’s and more try to capture the holiday season as best they can every single year. Window displays have become such a sight every winter that some even stray from the traditional product display, instead depicting snowy scenes or even telling a Christmas story from window to window. This year, Tiffany’s has made a miniature winter wonderland inside the facade of a carousel. Each window ties together to tell the story in a childrens’ book by David Melling and Christopher Young, which they’ve posted for viewing on their Facebook page. Bergdorf Goodman’s display relies on the more surreal, creating scenes using one or two colors for each window. The windows are entitled “Carnival of Animals”, and indeed, each features animals that seem to blend in with its surroundings while still popping with life. Each window also highlights a designer dress on a beautiful and ethereal model. Saks Fifth, not to be outdone, has created a light show, projecting ornaments, snowflakes, and bubbles which float over the building’s facade.
