It’s rare for me to get a chance to step behind the lens before a show, but thanks to my backstage team at Wella Hair, and covering for Conde Nast Traveller, I had tons of shooting time this season. I’m currently gearing up for Paris Fashion Week, and honestly, my favorite thing to do is people watch. So many beautiful faces. And just as beautiful looks. Fur, oversize coats, killer scarves. And the biggest smiles. Here are some of our favorite streetstyle stars shot by Dylana and I. We were looking to capture those dressed to stand out even in the freezing temperatures—but with effortlessness and nonchalance, of course. These are our favorite snapshots that embody the rushed, “go go go!” nature of NYFW. Paris has to be double the madness. See you soon Le France!

Deart Parents, why why why why why did you make me get braces along with those horrible visits to the dentist when I just could have been a giant gap toothed BABE?! Sigh. Gelareh Mizrahi is bringing it back, with her snakeskin red Lara Stone python bag (part of her “stoned” collection. why I love it even more) Red has been my color lately, and not just because of Valentine’s Day. But because: GONG XI FA CHOY! It’s Chinese New Year…a reason to wear red for good luck, and celebrate with friends over dumplings and jasmine tea. With the new Lunar year, I’ve already saged, cleansed, and feng shui’d everything I could get my hands on. It’s only positive vibes from here on out.

I’ve been using neoprene as my blanket as of late. Us New Yorkers have to experiment once your favorite wool sweater accidentally gets destroyed in the wash. A galaxy printed neoprene flare, and oversize neoprene bomber. Have I gone overboard?! Maybe. Made for a scuba dive or a day out and about during NYFW. Crazy, but it’s just fashion baby.

My sunglasses collection keeps on expanding, and I’ve become more and more daring when it comes to unique shapes, and interesting colors. I’m always one to make a look based off my favorite pair of sunnies. I’m a huge fan of everything KARL LAGERFELD, and this new pair of sunglasses from his latest collection is just so rock n’ roll cool, fit for those on the silver screen. I love it’s extra square shape and taupe color. It looks best with my favorite purple oversize fur coat, and messy hair. It’s a simple pair that easily makes a statement depending on how you style it! Square honestly flatters almost every single face shape. For me, I always let my sunglasses do the talking.
