Red Carpet Watch: The Met Ball

Every year, stars and style mavens alike gather to celebrate fashion and the arts at the Metropolitan Ball in New York City. This year, they paid special homage to the late Alexander McQueen and the exhibit featuring his greatest designs. Sarah Jessica Parker and  Salma Hayek were both dressed in McQueen designs, while others supported their other favorite designers.

In contrast to the bright hues we saw at the Oscars just a few months ago, the Met’s red carpet was filled with nude, yellow and beige tones. These natural colors have been huge trend in the last few seasons and will continue to be a fashion statement this year. I have included some of my favorite “nude” looks below.

Photo-Op: Boutiquing and Dior Beauty

One of my favorite parts of my job is getting the opportunity to work with strong women entrepreneurs. Erin Hall and April Madigan are the dynamic duo behind the successful website Boutiquing.com. Their site highlights boutiques from around the country while showcasing trends and latest arrivals you must just can’t miss. They are also good friends of mine, so I was thrilled when they asked me to be apart of this unique photo-shoot.

The challenge was to use a new Dior makeup eyeshadow palette on six very different complexions.  Lucky for us, we had a super talented makeup artist and my favorite photog, Tricia Meteer of Equinox Photo to make all of the ladies uniquely fabulous. The result was a classic photos with a modern twist!
