On the Scene: NARS Celebrates 20 Years, Altuzarra Fetes Target and More!

You can always count on New York for some super chic soirees and this season’s kick-off events were certainly no exception!

On Thursday night, NARS Cosmetics and Barneys New York celebrated the beauty brand’s 20th anniversary with an A-list fete attended by some of the industry’s brightest stars.  While for many it was already their second or third party of the night, the models style never faltered, as many looked set for the runway right then and there.  Toni Garrn, who is the current face of the NARS fall/winter 2014 campaign, looked especially noteworthy, as she flaunted her flawless figure in a revealing black dress that featured cut-outs and a sheer skirt giving full view of her hot pants underneath.

Also on hand for the occasion was Victoria’s Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson, whose post-wedding glow we couldn’t help but notice was still very much intact.

“I absolutely love married life,” gushed the newlywed, who married her husband Sean Clayton in an intimate ceremony in North Carolina back in July.  ”I’m just so in love and at ease right now.  Sean is the best thing that has ever happened to me and our wedding was the best day of my life.  We actually just got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii.  I fell it love with it!  I had never been there before and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was.  We’re definitely going back there sometime soon. Maybe we’ll just end up moving there.”
