MAIL BAG: CHELSEA LEYLAND’S NYFW
New in the mail bag, Chelsea Leyland’s postcard from New York Fashion Week! Chelsea deejayed her way through the week looking beautiful and snapping pictures for The Formula. /
“At the start of fashion week I deejayed Cole Haan’s FNO event. I kept my makeup pretty basic using my favorite red lip crayon by Nars, which has the best name, Cruella.
I loved the Karen Walker show, all the girls had huge bangs that they could barely see out of; I actually really want to cut big bangs myself now. I also loved the peachy lips the girls were all rocking.
That night I slept pretty badly. So I woke up and applied a lot of Ren Active 7 Radiant Gel on my not-so-well-rested eyes. This kept me looking tiptop while I did the music for Naeem Khan’s show. Luckily it went amazingly well, but it’s pretty scary doing the music for such a big show — its definitely a major responsibility.
Before the show, I ducked backstage to wish Naeem good luck, and slip into my Naeem Khan dress.
Suno was incredible. The prints and silhouettes were beautiful as always. I had a blast dj-ing their after-party in a cool Chinatown loft.
I had to snap a picture of my shoes while en route to deejay the Monika Chaing presentation. My trick to wearing high shoes throughout fashion week is to never get a pedicure the week before. It definitely helps when they aren’t baby soft!
Later in the week I went to the Interview Magazine dinner at Milk Studios. By this point I was absolutely exhausted. Some Laura Mercier concealer under my eyes saved the day! Here I am with my friend Maryna Linchuk. And that’s a wrap. Thanks for following my New York fashion week beauty adventures!”
