Listen: MisterWives, “Reflections”

Lately NYC band MisterWives has been keeping busy promoting their debut album Our Own House (released February 24), appearing on shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers and Good Morning America. Their initial EP release, Reflections, was pretty pop driven, but after a listen through OOH, it’s obvious there’s more to this band than catchy hooks and dance parties. Lead singer Mandy Lee has a distinct voice, although I was sitting here for the past 20 minutes swearing that she did a performance with La Blogotheque, but it turns out I was getting her confused with singer Alex Winston. Both singers have collaborated with DJ/producer/electro duo The Knocks – which is how I first heard of Lee, on M83’s “Midnight City.” Another notable cover? MisterWives’s version of Sam Smith’s “Money On My Mind.”

MisterWives is on tour now. Check out Our Own House.

I’m all about the hairstyles seen at the Anna Sui Fall 2015 runway show of this New York Fashion Week season. The entire collection was filled with earthy, 1970s-inspired fashions that mixed patterns and textures for a deeply luxurious feel. But the hair and makeup looks were as natural and effortlessly chic as they come, ultimate #HairGoals that make me wish I woke up with no-style-needed hair. Continue Reading »

New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 Hair & Makeup

NARS-Marc-Jacobs-AW15-Beauty-Look-1

The hair and makeup looks displayed at Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week had a total futuristic feel to them, but the bold lip colors and topknot hairstyles felt vaguely familiar. Why? Because even though all of the elements combined gave off a space-age vibe, the beauty looks from the NARS makeup artists and Redken hair team were all inspired by decades pastContinue Reading »

New York Fashion Week: Tome Fall 2015

Style.com

If there’s one collection that showed at New York Fashion Week this season that’s all about crisp lines, geometrical shapes, and kicked-up basics, it’s the Tome ready-to-wear collection for Fall 2015. The brand’s outfits and makeup worked in harmony to create a truly breathtaking show. While the terms “wearable” and “simple” tend to be insults for a high-fashion runway show, the looks that were shown on the catwalk were just creative enough to look special but familiar enough to be comfortable and craveable for the everyday fashion girl.

New York Fashion Week: Alexander Wang Fall 2015

Style.com

New York Fashion Week is back in full swing, and of course that means we have to share some of the most noteworthy styles that walked the runways this season! To kick things off, we’ve simply got to talk about the fashion, hair and makeup looks from Alexander Wang‘s Fall 2015 showcase. Goth and rock-inspired looks ruled the catwalk, and we can’t stop obsessing over the daring styles and infinite shades of black that the brand displayed. We can’t tell if we’re confused by the contrast of elegantly tailored pieces and frayed hem detailing in other duds or totally in awe of the runway show as an art piece. Either way, we’re intrigued.  Continue Reading »

The latest line of fashion-inspired makeup and packaging from MAC is the result of a high-style partnership with fashion and art designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo and it mixes both fun and fabulous aspects of beauty.  Continue Reading »
