Never been to Paris? Well, the City of Lights was brought to the Big Apple with the Parisian lifestyle/glamour inspired ELLE Runway Collection by Kohls. The event, hosted by Style360, was on point with the French theme by having the models walk thru an Eiffel Tower shaped frame, guests sitting "front row" at café tables, the Paris skyline on the walls, and playing French music throughout the show. Sitting at one the front row tables was singer/actress Christina Milian who kept it cool in a Wu-Tang t-shirt and jeans.

Any artist will tell you that good technique and quality supplies are worthless if you don’t have the tools to maximize them to their full potential. In the realm of cosmetics, a good brush is as vital to a makeup maven as it is to a painter. Glance at any beauty supplier’s stock, and you’ll see that styles run the gamut from broad, blush-friendly kabuki designs to slender, lid-lining models that are ideal for creating flawless cat eyes. The size, in addition to the type, and coarseness of its bristles are aspects worth considering when choosing the tool that will do the trick.
Ever wondered just how models. who are constantly travelling and putting on layers of makeup, look absolutely flawless and dewey once they hit the runway?
Well, a look backstage at the Erin Fetherston ss2015 show gave us quite a few answers. Cygalle Healing Spa opened up their mobile spa and offered holistic rejuvenating services to the models.The spa included facials, soothing aromatherapy, hot stone treatments with infrared technology and the spa's healing oils to keep the models stress free and complexions bright. Since the Cygalle Healing Spa only uses 100% organic materials, the models reflected a look of inner health and the glow of youthful skin.
Wondering what to slip into to satiate your inner femme fatale? Chong Cha deftly wove together sheer cut outs, delightfully low backs and sweeping trains to create a collection of gowns that will capture your imagination.
Chong Cha's show had models sliding out into the runway with killer confidence and killer heels clad in fabrics that were embedded with metallics and reflective beads. The white, black and golden gowns shimmered with the sex appeal of the late 70s disco age; yet the sleek cut of the dresses exuded a powerful aura of the commanding modern woman.

Every fashionista knows that a beautiful lip color is necessary with any ensemble. You can literally make a style statement with the use of the proper lip color.

With a chic fold down look in a versatile stone color -- this bootie can easily take you from desk to date night! A city girl must-have.

In his signature style, Bibhu Mohapatra wowed at NYFW S/S2015. Immaculate drapery, rich vibrant silks, and divine colors floated across the runway with ethereal grace and effortless beauty. Formerly a designer for J. Mendel, Mohapatra has never seemed to disappoint with his collections since the inception of his eponymous line in 2008.
This season the collection favored floor and midi length evening gowns in heavily-draped, almost metallic silks. Hints of geometric prints with carefully placed florals added interest to many of the read-to-wear designs. Elaborate and chic matching two-sets were also a highlight of the collection, and some of our personal favorite looks.

1. Michael Kors goes Retro
Kors reinforces the fact that happy people are the prettiest people with his “optimist chic” collection. In today’s stressful world, Kors strives to bring joy with his retro line- and that is just what he is doing. Kors brings us back to the 50’s with classic A-lines, sewn in florals and retro plaid. This collection is genius because it is day and evening wear for real women. There was not one frown in the audience after his nostalgic parade.
