NYFW S/S 2012 with Dashing Diva, Daisy Fuentes, Kohl's, and more !

Fashion week was full of style,beauty, and some serious celebrity power. Today I am going to talk about my backstage look at the Daisy Fuentes' fashion show.  Yes Daisy Fuentes has a great fashion collection at Kohl's. There were some serious pros working to get Daisy's look and vision across. With nails by Patti Yankee of Dashing Diva, hair by Whitney Blischke of Toni & Guy, and makeup by VIktorija Bowers at Kat Ryan Inc for BeautiControl.


Dashing Diva Nails! 

Nude is a huge color for the season so I am happy that Dashing Diva pull out "Fashion Week" for the runway. Fashion Week is a sheer flesh-toned peachy pink nail ploish that looks great on every skin tone. So make sure you have a great peachy nail polish in your beauty tool kit.





NYFW Fact : Nude was a very popular color at NYFW.






The Makeup



Here is VIktorija Bowers, lead makeup artist for the show. I had a chance to talk to her about the overall look for the show. Think a socialite in St Tropez coming from a day beach and transitioning into a evening of dancing, cocktails, and laughs! For the perfect St. Tropez Look, you need a beautiful smokey, a great bronzer, and a nude lip.  




 VIktorija applied a bronzer to give a golden sun kissed look to the models. Bronzer is a great way to give a glow effect to any fashionista. A shimmer lotion was also used to give off the glowing/sun-kissed look.












I love this mascara brush! 




The Hair







I love this look. Very 70's yet modern. Pin curls were used to get these great curls.



The Looks! 

    Daisy Fuente's collection oozed the essence of French glamour and St. Tropez casual sexyiness. A fashion collection that can be worn in real life is a stylish treat.  




These shoes are so cute! 



This look can be achieved by anyone. Simple is always chic with the right accessories.




Backstage! 

Backstage at any fashion show can be busy and hectic but everyone was very nice and profesional. You can not go wrong with clothing, cameras, and tons of style!







Love this coral color dress and the espadrilles are to die for! 











Daisy Fuentes


Here is Daisy backstage! Her shoes were fabulous. 



The Show! 


Here is the collection. The show was fantastic.


































Many celebrities are merging into the fashion and retail industry. Some with success, others not so much. I believe that Daisy's Summer/Spring Collection is wearable, affordable, and stylish.  Dare I say one of the hottest celebs lines out right now.

My look






For some reason I been feeling black. I love my costume jewelry. I never leave home without it!  I just I was channeling my big sister @CannieAzalea who is a huge fan of black for the season.

The Giftbag



Here is my giftbag from the show! Absolutely fabulous! make sure you check out Daisy fabulous  collection at Kohl's! I am also happy to see that Daisy has a really great plus size collection too! 

I had a fabulous time at the show! Special thanks to Dashing Divas for the invite!
