OUR FAVORITE NY FASHION WEEK TRENDS!

FASHION

Monique Lhuillier

At Monique Lhuillier, warm vibrant colors ruled the runway! Inspired by “sheer elegance”, the collection is a modern take on evening wear. It was all in the details as gorgeous texture, intricate embellishment, splashes of tangerine and pops of fuchsia created looks that exuded effortless glamour.

 

Naeem Khan

Inspired by both Spanish and Mexican cultures, Naeem Khan definitely channeled spicy flamenco dancers to Frida Kahlo in his new Spring 2014 Collection! Through his off-the-shoulder peasant blouses, boldly colored prints and hand-sewn embroidery, the Latin flair is obvious! Naeem Khan’s collection was definitely muy caliente.

 

Rebecca Taylor

Opposites attracted at Rebecca Taylor’s Spring 2014 collection! The usual Rebecca Taylor femininity was accompanied this season with a badass attitude. Leathers,moto-inspired construction and boyfriend blazers were paired with girly floral prints and sheer fabrics

 

Reem Acra

Reem Acra brought the party at NYFW…the disco party that is. Every eye-catching look incorporated metallics, sexy cutouts, sheer fabric or all of the above! The result? Reem Acra gave us Saturday night fever, and we’re loving it!

NAILS

White Nails

     White nails were one of the major manicure trends spotted on the runway. From designers such as Prabal Gurung to Tibi and Kate Spade and many in between, pale nails left their mark. The HONOR manicure is almost nude polish, “La Vie en Rose” by Deborah Lippmann and six rhinestones in a pyramid shape at the base of the nail. Cushnie et Ochs models rocked long and sharply pointed Rihanna-inspired nails made unique with silver Nail Veil nail rings in the center of all ten nails.

 

Moon Manicures

     Moon manicures were the second NYFW nail trend sure to soon be seen on every fashionista’s pretty fingers. We saw everything from the moon shape on the tips of the nails (Alice+Olivia) to the base, in bold colors like at Desigual or soft neutrals at Jenni Kayne. No matter how you do it, you can’t go wrong with the moon trend.

After Party Beauty Routine

Even if you haven’t slept much this past week with New York Fashion Week and the mayhem of Fashion’s Night Out, you don’t have to show it!  We have compiled some of our favorite products to use after a long weekend.

Re-energize and Pamper yourself!


Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

Inspired by the most famous facial offered at the Bliss Spa, this pink, gel-like mask forms a foamy froth when massaged onto the face…it delivers a shot of oxygen and vitamin C to tired skin, leaving skin soft and glowing. Click here for more information


Shiseido White Lucent

Fight dark under eye circles with Shiseido White Lucent!  This intensive eye cream does double duty! It not only banishes existing dark under eye circles by fading visible pigmentation, but it also prevents under eye circles as well by improving circulation and blocking melanin production.  You can purchase it here.

VMA’s, FNO and New York Fashion Week..oh my!

So many events, so little time! Last night was not only the start of New York Fashion Week, but also Fashion’s Night Out and the VMAs!

At Chic Studios we are in a glamour-induced coma between the performances of Demi Lovato and Alicia Keys at the VMA’s and the models strutting down the runways of BCBGMAXAZRIA and Tadashi Shoji, yesterday was like a dream come true for beauty lovers like yours truly.

At the VMA’s, we LOVED these LOOKS:

Rihanna debuted her new ultra-short black pixie cut and paired it with a show stopping matte red lip.

Taylor Swift’s white suit wasn’t the only sleek thing she rocked last night. Her hair was smooth and glossy.

Holland Roden in a soft, wavy up-do with volume at the crown.

New York fashionistas had an array of stylishevents to attend last night at Fashion’s Night Out. Some of our favorites were at Beauty and Essex where curator and “Gold Girl” Lauren Kaminsky was on hand to showcase different jewelry collections (with special offers and cocktails!) and BCBG where shoppers were styled and entered to win a $1,000 BCBGMAXAZRIA wardrobe just by uploading their new stylish looks to Instagram.

Although every show is sure to impress, some of the events we are most looking forward to during Fashion Week include Rebecca Minkoff at Theatre (09/07), Diane von Furstenberg at Theatre (09/09), Reem Acra at Stage (09/10) and Rachel Zoe at Studio (09/12).

Get some beauty sleep fashionistas; this is just the beginning of New York Fashion Week! And the rest of the week promises to be just as glamorous.   Follow us on twitter this weekend for all our NYFW (New york Fashion Week) tweets from the RUNWAY and BACKSTAGE! www.twitter.com/chicstudiosnyc
