"A Certain Allure" recently shot in NYC by celebrity photographer Christopher Logan (who is also highly regarded for his large-scale photo exhibition devoted to designer Richie Rich) features photos of Tunisian supermodel, Kenza Fourati shot on location in NYC at MiMA.
We caught up with the renowned photographer as he shared the details of the Fiercive Magazine fashion spread with the JB readers.
The gorgeous twenty-something Kenza who usually is photographed in seductive bikinis switched things up featuring exquisite gowns for this shoot styled by Don West from Agency Gerard. Fashions by Randi Rahm, Nicole Miller and Carlos Miele were accented with bold jewelry by Kara Ross.
The who's who of fashion & nightlife stopped by the "Tragic Glamour" exhibit to take in a photolistic journey like no-other (in NYC that's definitely impressive). The epic exhibit displayed creative, colorful and life-like blown up images of Designer/Popculture icon Richie Rich & Ross Higgins; as styled by Fashion Director/Celeb Stylist Derek Warburton and shot by renowned photographer Christopher Logan.
The Pop International Gallery was packed with guests anticipating this unique evening. I literally felt as if some of the images of Richie Rich were coming to life before my fashionable eyes. The stylish crowd was clearly impressed with the evening as I heard many of them complimenting the creative and positive vibe of this special event!
While ready-to-wear often steals the spotlight, we’d be making a big mistake not to give some special attention to the fresh beauty trends that graced the runway last week. With as much presence as the covetable clothing, New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2012 season brought us an assortment of hair and makeup looks that inspire our beauty routines as much as the collections inspired our wardrobes. From voluminous, airy updos to nail art we’ll be taking to the salon, here are the best and brightest beauty highlights from backstage to the catwalk. (Hint: keep those tweezers at bay—bushy eyebrows aren’t going anywhere!)

Exposed zippers, scattered prints inspired by ancient carvings and very architectural patterns all walked down Nicole Miller’s fall 2009 runway show at the tents. Though more monochromatic than we are used to seeing from the designer, Miller in no way disappointed. A beautiful electric blue dress with architecturally inspired pleating on the front of the bodice and chic mini dresses with abstract, spider web-esque prints with pops of color would make for stand-out pieces in any girl’s closet.
