Mongol sent their fall/winter 2015/2016 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on Friday, February 13, 2015 at The Theater in Lincoln Center. The energetic show started off with an amazing live performance, which was a segway into an equally energetic runway show.

The fall 2015 collection from Mongol featured vivid autumn hues, cut-outs, texture, and a playful vibe. I loved the mix of purple and berry hues! To view the runway show, please visit the video below courtesy of IMG Fashion.

Gucci sent their fall/winter 2015/2016 collection down the Milan Fashion Week runway last week and showed a clean, classic beauty look which complimented the subway themed show, and vintage collection featured on the catwalk. The feminine and classic beauty look on the Gucci runway was created by Gucci Cosmetics Artistic Director, Pat McGrath.

Pat McGrath shares with us how to achieve this runway look at home, right now, before fall 2015 begins! Love that!



Skin was prepared by applying Gucci Purifying Cleansing Water, Refining Gentle Toner and Perfecting Lightweight Moisturizer. Before makeup application, Gucci Silk Priming Serum was used to prime the skin.


Gucci Lustrous Glow Foundation and Luminous Perfecting Concealer were applied to match each model’s skin tone.


Each model received individualized application amount of the Gucci Magnetic Color Shadow Duo in Aristocratic to enhance the natural tone of their eyes. Next, one coat of Gucci Opulent Volume Mascara in Cocoa was applied to the base of the top lashes only. Lastly, eyebrows were groomed using the Precise Sculpting Brow Pencil


Clear lip balm was gently dabbed on lips with a finger and then tissued off.

Finishing Touch:

The look was finished off with Gucci Luxe Finishing Powder.

Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015

Chanel’s Haute Couture spring and summer 2015 collection was shown in Paris on January 26, 2015. This beautiful collection by Karl Lagerfeld showcased an animated Garden of Eden complete with floral inspiration, soft pastels, pops of blue and red as well as a soft, romantic vibe.

I am in love with the flowing fabrications, applique’s and the hats! Love! This collection also makes me want to add more pastel pink to my wardrobe.
