To kick off the conference at Park Central Hotel, all fashionistas joined for a networking brunch provided by derma e, where they chatted about style and sipped on delicious mimosas. Then the effervescent Jamie Chung joined our host Catt Sadler for a discussion of starting out and working in the fashion industry. Jamie shared her journey from being a reality TV star to acting in films and now starting her own fashion and lifestyle blog, "What the Chung." Jamie even confessed that she couldn't get her fiance to take her fashion shots anymore, because she's too picky with her photos and had to find a photographer to collab with. She advises that it's never too late to start your own fashion journey and to just reach out to photographers and brands that you are intersted in working with.

Expertly Tailored DIY Halloween Looks

Halloween Chic Face Mask

Monika Crouch, MUA at Pierre Michel Salon

Products:

Silver cream makeup, Ben Nye Metallic Liquid is great.

Eyelash glue is the best for applying rhinestones, preferably in clear or the white that dries clear, Duo is my favorite, or Revlon.

I use NARS gel eyeliner in black to do all the detail for mask trim and lace detail. It's waterproof and doesn't smudge.


Steps:

  1. Moisturize and apply foundation to even out skin .
  2. Next take a silver cream foundation in the shape of a mask across your eyes area.
  3. Next apply black cream shadow on eyes , the same way you would apply to do a simple smoky eye.
  4. Apply black eyeshadow over cream to set . For the details to make a lace mask, take a stencil of your choice with a lace/floral pattern and apply to face and then go over the stencil with a cream makeup in black to make the shape of the lace over the silver areas of makeup .Take the same black cream makeup and create a border around the silver mask.
  5. Final step, take rhinestone and place in areas of the fade to add dimension.

BEHIND THE FABRIC
Legendary Designer Oscar De La Renta Dies at 82

This morning, the world lost an icon. Oscar De La Renta, known for his distinct taste in art and style, has dressed Hollywood's elite, but was most commonly known for dressing former First Lady, Jacqueline Onassis. De La Renta, born in the Dominican Republic, was the first Dominican designer to really hit it big with Haute Couture. From 1993-2002, he made collections for the House of Balmain.

De La Renta’s name reached new heights when Sex and the City started airing. Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, really put De La Renta’s brand out there, along with Manolo Blahnik. In the final season of Sex and the City, Carrie’s boyfriend, Petrovsky, stated that he was good friends with Oscar De La Renta and later gave Carrie a gorgeous gown made by the well-known designer.

Get the Perfect Festival Look with CAT Footwear

Exciting news for NYC's cool-CAT Footwear fans: the brand has opened an October pop-up shop at THE CORNER (47th Street and Lexington Avenue), and it will be open to consumers from October 21st to the 28th. Shop your favorite fashion-meets-function boot styles and stop in for one of the many events scheduled for this month. The first, which took place Saturday, October 11th, the International Day of the Girl, benefitted E.P.I.C (Everyday People Initiating Change), a charity two Cat #Earthmovers are affiliated with, by donating a portion of sales proceeds to the organization. Feeding Fall footwear cravings couldn't feel any better!

For those who are unfamiliar with the workwear-inspired shoe manufacturer, here's the 411: these are NOT your parents' Cats. The company, which originally specialized in designing heavy-duty boots, has now broadened its reach by creating fashionable, everyday styles. The sturdy models are reliable, go-to shoes that provide adequate support with accompanying style. In our opinion, these are ideal festival shoes (heads up to those looking for a Hunter boot alternative) for those long days on your feet dancing, trudging through muddy grounds, and posing for pics. After flipping through the new SS15 collection, we felt inspired to put together a few festival looks that we can't wait to rock.

The "Rock 'n Roll" Couple

A notch up from your average Tims, these sleek boots not only look cool, but also come in a practical color that masks the inevitable wear-and-tear resulting from a week of outdoor festivities and partying hard. Hide yesterday's all-nighter under a pair of aviator shades and dark jeans (for some reason, deeper washes always look crisper than their lighter counterparts).

Indigo jeans, All Saints ($178)

Classic black tee, Urban Outfitters ($50)

These ankle booties are the perfect height. We love how the low, boxy heel offers support, while the side-slits allow for more flexible movement (if you like to get your groove on, you'll appreciate this), two fundamental features for any festival free-spirit. The feminine cut can complement a casual daytime look, or could dress up a cute dress to achieve a more sophisticated style.

Denim cut off shorts, Rag & Bone ($142)
