Bella trois Toronto fashion week

 

It’s great to be back in Toronto! Not only is it one of the best cities in the world, but there is literally so much to see and do, my schedule has been crazy packed since I got back!

 

One of the best things about being back? World Mastercard Fashion Week. The Bella Trois girls and I got to attend the Pink Tartan show at Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015 last week. We were invited by Redken and Maybelline to check out the trends and all the fun that goes on backstage before the show!

 

We had the best time ever because we actually got to interview Pink Tartan designer, Kimberly Newport Mimran and her incredibly inspirational husband and founder of Joe Fresh, Joe Mimran. We put a little video together for you guys, check it out! Oh and the show was fantastic, you are going to love what’s coming out for Fall 2015 ;)

 

 

Stay tuned, we’ve got more footage for you, plus our interview with…Jeanne Bekker!!

los angeles fashion week 2015

 

This past week has been pretty busy with events as it’s LA Fashion Week! It’s also my last week in California as I’ll be heading back home soon.

 

I ran into my friend Sarah Shahryar, an Afghan pop star and TV host from Orange County and just super sweet and so fab.

LA  Fashion Week is held in a few different locations, all of which are close to downtown LA and the Staples Center. The Vilorija show which is in these pictures was held at Maker City LA. Maker City is great as they really support a lot of emerging designers in the LA Fashion scene.

Pretty cell phone case

 

I had to share my favorite new accesory, my pretty cell phone case! It’s no secret that I am obsessed with anything Chanel inspired and as soon as I saw this Chanel cell phone case by Park Avenue Accessories I had to have it!

 

Chanel cell phone case

 

The great thing about this case is that it has compartments for everything you would need for a night out. A slot for your ID, Credit cards, 2 lip gloss holders. It also comes with a cute chain that turns it into a wristlet so you don’t have to carry it.

 

Girls cell phone case

 

It comes in a few different colors, I just wanted to go for the classic white & gold- or is it really blue & black? ;P

Marsala eyeshadow ideas

 

The other day I was showing you guys some ideas on products that work well with the Pantone color of the year Marsala and I promised you Marsala eyeshadow looks.

 

Well here it is! I put together a little chart on eyeshadow color combinations to use with Marsala. Below the chart you’ll find out where to place each color.

 

marsala eyeshadow combination ideas

1. Place Ricepaper on the lid + Bronze in the crease for definition.

2. Apply Amber Lights to the lid + Coppering in the crease + Folie to the outer corner for a smokey affect.

3. Smudge Twinks around the upper & lower lash line + put Cranberry on the rest of the lid and blend softly into the crease.

4. Apply Brun to the inner & outer lid + Mythology on the center of the lid + Brun slightly in the crease

5. Apply Club on the eyelid (use a dark base underneath like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline for a more dramatic affect) + place Embark in the crease.

 

What are your fav combos to wear with Marsala?

By now you have probably heard someone mention something about the Pantone color of the year Marsala. What exactly is Marsala? Well it’s a color described as having a reddish brown base with a wine colored tint to it.

 

There are several ways to work Marsala into your makeup routine. I selected a couple different options from each category (blush, lips, shadows) to give you an idea. I’ll do another post on eyeshadow combos that would work well with Marsala.

 

How to wear Marsala the Pantone color of the year 2015

 

 

1. Sephora + Pantone Bold Marsala Mascara a volumizing mascara in Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala.

VFSC Vanity Fair Social Club

 

I promised you another post on my experience at Vanity Fair Social Club 2015 and here it is!

 

Like I said in the last post, we got to meet some celebs, my fav had to be meeting Billy Bush from Access Hollywood. I watch Access Hollywood Live and as a TV Host I have a lot of respect for him. He is so good at what he does!

Armani Beauty was on hand doing makeup applications and they even brought in their top MUA, Tim Gunn. Tim is a total inspiration for all the work that he’s done and celebs that he’s gotten to work with. Plus he is so incredibly nice and fun and down to earth.

Armani beauty touch ups! My fav product I got to try? Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in # 6. It’s a liquid blush that glides beautifully onto the skin, blends really well and is the perfect shade.

Glamsquad was also on hand doing brow touchups. They used the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Designer Pencil which, btw, is a really great drugstore brow pencil for those of you looking for one.

Another great moment was meeting Louise Roe & Brad Goreski. Louise was introducing her new book Front Roe: How to Be the Leading Lady in Your Own Life. I got to look at the book, super cute with some great tips like how to eat healthy when traveling.

Ok my absolute fav donut shop in LA- California donuts brought in their delicious donuts one morning. You have to try the Reese’s peanut butter cup donut. It has chocolate frosting with broken up reese peanut butter cups on top and peanut butter filling inside. Unreal.

Besides the donuts, there was so much delicious food and drinks all week. I especially loved this beautiful cheese board they did with baguettes, olives, honey, nuts and wine.

My Week at the Vanity Fair Social Club

By Wednesday, February 25, 2015 0 No tags Permalink 0

VFSC Vanity Fair

 

Last week was arguably one of the best weeks ever as I got to attend the week long Vanity Fair Social Club in Hollywood. Every day was filled with panels of experts and people in the movie business, makeovers, delicious food and endless champagne. There was so much going on that I had to break this up into 2 posts. I’ll post part 2 tomorrow.

 

The VFSC event was held inside the We Work space in Hollywood, just 2 blocks down from the Oscars setup at the Kodak Theatre.

The first day featured a panel of Youtube All Stars- Tyler Oakley, iJustine and Joey Graceffa. These Youtubers each have millions of followers. Crazy. They were all so nice and down to earth :)

We got to listen to Costume designer Colleen Atwood discuss what goes into designing a wardrobe for a film and preview her collection of handbags. Colleen is an 11 time Oscar nominee and was nominated this year for her work in the film Into the Woods.

We listened to a panel of Movie critics discussing their Oscar predictions. It was pretty unanimous that Birdman was a front runner (it won best picture).

One of my fav moments was listening to the architect behind the annual Vanity Fair after party, Basil Walter. He showed us where his inspiration for design comes from and how much work actually goes into throwing the parties.

My other fav moment was meeting TV Host and author Louise Roe and Celeb stylist and co-host of E’s Fashion Police Brad Goreski. Love these two! Louise Roe is the queen of the makeover show (my fav kind to watch) and Brad (he’s Canadian too!) used to be on the Rachel Zoe project and is an amazing stylist.

SNL’s legendary photographers Edie Baskin and Mary Ellen Matthews were also on hand discussing the behind the scenes of the celeb stills you’ll see between commercials on SNL.
