Glam Damn It
As New yorkers brave the cold and eagerly await a blissfull spring, a slew of your favorite stars gathered across the pond for the 2014 Brit Awards, which took place in London on Feburay 19th, and Glam Damnit is bringing you the bes dressed of the evening including Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, One Direction, and Katy Perry.
What a coincidence it is that two of our absolutely favorite times of the year are so close together: New York Fashion Week and St. Patrick’s Day ! It may not seem to you that the two go hand and hand, but you would be surprised. How so? Well, although green was not the "IT" color of Fashion Week, we identified the most fashionable shade of green with Pantone as Cypress green. This gorgeous ethereal color appeared on over half of our runway shows and is going to be popping up in our fave stores all over the place. We love this color; it looks so sophisticated and elegant. Cypress the most trend setting gorgeous way to sweeten up your wardrobe and get ready to show off your Irish pride (real or fake!).
Pedicure.com is the best site for finding new nail art trends and inspiration, but they also throw amazing events! They hosted the ultimate girl’s night out at the Flatiron District’s Serenity Spa this past Tuesday, where more than 50 ladies from Urban Girl Squad (with a few fashion bloggers and media elite thrown into the mix) were primped and pampered while they socialized and relaxed. For $30, guests were treated to a 10-minute massage and full manicure. In between spa treatments attendees enjoyed bubbling glasses of exclusive Italian-brand Altaneve Prosecco and yummy appetizers from NYC’s hottest Mediterranean lounge, Pergola.
New York City hummed with palpable electricity as legions of fashion fiends swarmed the tents at Lincoln Center to behold the collections built on blood, sweat and glitter. This was New York Fashion Week.
The intrigue of Alexander Wang’s collection enticed fashionistas to schlep down to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, far from the chaos of Manhattan. Complete with a spinning runway, Wang dazzled with his dramatic flair.
Models were unrecognizable with icy stares, bleached brows and slick-straight wigs, which reflected the androgynous overtones of the show. They marched down the runway in utilitarian dresses with rows of pockets for things you never knew you needed. Wang played with gender bending in menswear-inspired frocks. Billowing slacks hid under oversized coats with massive lapels that veiled any trace of womanly curves.
Jessica Alba is one of our favorite fashionistas, and the starlet was recently spotted rocking the harem-pant trend while out and about in LA. A true master of cool yet casual, the style maven rocked it by sporting the look with a soild top and casual shoes. Make the look your own with the Metaphor pant available on Sears.com for only $34 $16.99!
Many a fashion aficionado took note of the Mercedes-Benz F/W 2014 collections shown during February 6-13th at Lincoln Center. Joonbug was there to soak in all of the fashion, excitement, celebrity spotting and socializing during the week!
Here we spotlight a few of our fashionable favorites. Fear not - high boots, faux fur and floppy hats are still en vogue next season.
We observed the BCBG show from the proverbial eye in the sky in the AMEX Skybox at Lincoln Center. Having experienced Fashion Week from various rows and locations, the AMEX Skybox allows you to take the show in while sitting in style. Amenities include champagne, cocktails, food, and celebrity guests. The BCBG Collection featuring sleek lines, ponchos, color-blocking, high boots and 70's flair, was both wearable and flirty. Guest speakers such as Joe Zee (Elle Magazine), Steven Kolb (CFDA), and Tadashi Shoji are known to interact with the AMEX Skybox guests for exclusive Q&A's.
