Tracy Reese Beauty Look Fall 2014 Runway Show
Backstage Beauty: Glittery Eyes & Shattered Glass Manis Take Over at Tracy Reese

When you enter the scene at Tracy Reese, the first thing you hear is “Helloooooooo Gorgeous!!” from across the room. That would be legendary makeup artist and one of our all-time favorite girly girls, Mally Roncal. Surrounded by models, brushes, and about a million lipsticks, it’s hard to get to her, but somehow we managed.

Custo Barcelona Fall Winter 2014 Runway Fur
Custo Barcelona: Textured Beauty Meets Multi-Color Furs

I've seen many desingers show their collections again and again at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Each season, I love attending Custo Barcelona's show because I know it's going to be loads of color (even for Fall fashion week, which is dominated by black, white and gray) and loads of fun. Designer Custo Dalmau is the king of mixing textures with bold colors, and this season was truly a wow moment.

Nothing Beats the Man-Watching at Nautica's Fall/Winter 2014 Runway Show

Nautica is secretly one of my favorite shows each season. Though I cover women's fashion and love following women's trends (Us guys really get the short end of the stick...and nothing REALLY ever changes.), it's always nice to see a collection that I can actually covet...for myself.

Erin Fetherston Channels Grace Kelly for Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Presentation

Grace Kelly is a classic emblem of pure elegance and poised femininity that defined a generation and resonates to this day, but are those characteristics something that are innate or can it be attained?

All you need is one of Fetherston’s floral and lace cocktail dresses, librarian glasses and slick ponytail and you’re set.
