On the Scene: Music and Style Collide at Fashion Rocks and Galore

The worlds of fashion and music collided last night at the Ryan Seacrest-hosted global charity fundraiser event, Fashion Rocks, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  With live musical performances  by Usher, Rita Ora, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj, spectacular runway shows and surprise celebrity appearances, the New York Fashion Week event turned out to be one of the biggest star-studded events of the season.  And like any fashion week event, it wasn’t without a bevy of runway-ready supermodels.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie of the Year, Sara Sampaio, was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet outside the Barclays center alongside model/blogger Emma Jane Menteath.  The Portuguese stunner, who walked in Jeremy Scott show this afternoon, impressed in what she described as a “last minute look” considting of some vintage pieces chosen by her stylist Sasha Benz and an Alexander McQueen clutch.   Further along the carpet, Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge stunned in a zebra print crop top and a sharp skirt-pant hybrid by Sally LaPointe, a Bliss Lau body chain and jewelry by Jennifer Fisher and Maiyet. Anne also opted for well-tailored pants on the red carpet, stepping out in wide-leg style paired with a dramatic tuxedo shirt featuring a long train by RK Designs and jewelry by Rona Pfeiffer.  Meanwhile, Joan Smalls showed off her ruwnay-ready legs in a printed Fausto Puglisi dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, while Naomi Campbell brought the glamour in a white floor-length Versace gown.

NYFW Street Style Day #6: Accessories Are a Model’s Best Friend!

All an outfit needs to graduate to a Look is one defining accessory — the change of a shoe or the addition of a hat or goggles? And, no one knows this better than the models. The mastery, of course, isn’t just in walking in those shoes, but it’s finding them in the first place. It’s arm candy. It’s foot candy. It’s eye candy– and we have a sweet tooth.

Street style mavens, Maliaka Firth and Ewa Wladymiruk turned the concrete streets of NYC into their own personal catwalks this week. Malaika donned a sporty-look, rocking Nike sneakers, flower jumper and a oversized jacket topped off with a red messenger bag. The key to looking chic in a low-key outfit? Adding one high-end item, which Malaika nailed.

Ewa opted for a more upscale look–wearing a chic all-grey tight dress. From her leather Alexander Wang grey bowling bag to her black gladiator sandals, Ewa looks fresh to death. And for a pop of color? Irina Nikolaeva models a a colorful flower sweater with mint green cropped pants. We too like to throw in a pop of color somewhere. Whether it’s with a bag or a shoe–we’re into it, how about you? Read the rest of this entry »
