Party Pics: Inside the Biggest Parties of New York Fashion Week Day 4

Turns out not even frigid winds and recording-breaking temperatures could keep the fashion crowd away from the party circuit on Sunday night. Thankfully they had one less stop to make as Prabal Gurung and Public School combined their after-party festivities at Queen of The Night at The Paramount Hotel. Newcomer ASTR performed on the venue’s neon-lit stage, while onlookers including Grace Mahary, Mia Moretti and Hannah Bronfman, danced into the early morning hours.

Meanwhile, Dom Perignon provided shelter from the cold at Gilded Lily for a party billed as, “LIGHTS OUT!” The evening, hosted by Carmelo Anthony, coincided with the NBA All-Star Game and thus, brought out a stellar mix of athletes, musicians and fashion influencers.  Among those sipping bubbly and occasionally posing with the dozens of Dom Perignon glow-in-the-dark bottles decorating the venue were models Tyson Beckford, Shanina Shaik and Jasmine Tookes,  designers Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie and even NBA legend Scottie Pippen.

Scroll through the slideshow below for the full look at the New York Fashion Week’s best party pics.

Beauty How To: Kendall Jenner’s Seductive Smokey Eye at DVF

“The collection was inspired by seduction,” said Orlando Pita for TRESemmé backstage at DVF’s Fall 2015 show.  “The hair is more of the seductress at night when she pulls her hair back and does the smoky eye — it’s the seductress knot.” Using the Tresemmé Blow Dry Balm, Pita started by blow-drying the hair and putting his fingers through it.  He then secured the hair with an elastic and twisted it, letting pieces fall out as it was being pinned into a knot.  Once it was secured, Pita finished the look by spraying it with Perfectly Undone Hairspray — “We don’t want to make it too perfect,” he added.

As for the makeup, Pat McGrath kept with the seductress theme by focusing on a natural smokey eye.  She began with Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Foundation and used some gold shadow on the cheekbones to keep the skin looking fresh and radiant.  Then, she mixed Kohl black and brown eye pencils all around the eyes and layered them with the Smoky Eye Drama Kit in Sumptuous and the Excess Shimmer Eye Shadow in Onyx. The lashes were then topped off with Velvet Volume Mascara, while the lips were left bare, sand a touch of concealer and lip balm.  McGrath promises this look modern, glamorous and of course, seductive.
