I kicked off Paris Fashion week at the Commuun show on Tuesday night. Designers Iku Furudate and Kaito Hori’s sustainable organic collection draws its inspiration from nature and architecture via bold lines and faded hues. After the show, I chatted up the hair and makeup departments to get the details on the beauty looks.

While in Paris, I caught up with my dear friend, the charming film buff and cat enthusiast Jessica from Marie Claire, France.

Alexandre Herchcovitch takes us back in time to the 1950’s in his SS 2012 collection. Using vintage fabrics with faded colors, the clothes are bold yet refined.  Backstage I chatted with the beauty experts about the looks they created for the show.

Preen’s SS 2012 collection celebrates the modern romantic woman with an edge. They knocked it out of the park with their soft colors and energetic patterns.  After the show I caught up with the hair and makeup teams to get the inside scoop on the flawless looks they created.

Earlier this evening I headed to Milk Studios to check out the Katie Gallagher show. This is Katie’s fifth  showing at NYFW and it’s on the heels of her first delivery at shopbop selling out in a heartbeat. Her SS 2012 collection, “Red Red Blood”, is inspired by sanguine and Katie designed a head to toe beauty look to complement the collection.

For FNO I kept it local, staying downtown and checking out some of my favorite brands. My first stop was the Chanel boutique. Their manicure bar was already in full gear with a line down the sidewalk pretty early in the evening. They were offering full service manicures featuring Chanel’s new denim themed nail collection—which looks incredible!

I caught up with Kristina Estabrooks, lead fashion designer for nail powerhouse CND, early this afternoon while backstage at the Wes Gordon show.  We chatted about her decision to go bold and bright for the nails in the show.
“Its CND’s 15th year in fashion and we are really celebrating lots of rich saturated colors. It is all about power and powerful women. I had in mind the kind of woman who can walk down the street and exude power. For this show I chose to use the Nearly Neon shade “Poppyfield”. Poppy is a new twist on the classic red and can go with pretty much anything and any skin tone.”
