Banana Sandwich: Nail Polish as Lipstick?

"Yesterday I was using nail polish as lipstick. It's just experiment after experiment. I'll mix one with another one to try to find the one that I like." -Heiress Daphne Guinness

Weird and unsafe, how does one remove nail polish from their lips? Do not try this at home.

I love everything about this photo editorial, creative director Yann Webber is a fashion genius! Inside Antidote magazine, Shoe Issue, Italian fashion photographer Giampaolo Sgura, top model Magdalena Frackowiak and stylist Belén Casadevall, creates an editorial featuring a very fashionable but homeless Parisienne owning some of the most coveted shoes in town. Hope you enjoy!

My NYFW Obsession: Luca Luca Headbands!

Patricia Field Fashion's Night Out

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending 'Fashion's Night Out The Artists of Patricia Field' at the legendary East Village eatery Veselka. Although it took us nearly forever to get there, as soon as my guest and I arrived we spotted the iconic Field dancing while greeting guest; she was warm, inviting and full of light, just as hoped she'd be. Throughout every picture and interview Field's eyes lit up with excitement and joy as she spoke over her love of art and passion for undiscovered stars. The party showcased over half a dozen artist with exceptional talents, "using assorted mediums, including paint, photography, fashion, sculpture and video". Each piece including a few (majority) of the guest were more eye-catching the the next. Take a look for yourself.
