Day to Night with AX

Day to Night with AX

It is somewhat of a bizarre feeling. Usually I am the one behind the scenes, prepared with a full belt of styling tools to make sure the model or artist looks flawless.  Or I am the one giving an interview, taking notes and making sure I capture the designer’s personality and emotion to the utmost degree.(…)

H&M: Adventures in Paris

H&M: Adventures in Paris

Words cannot even express the gratitude I have towards H&M for choosing me as an Everyday Icon. Each time I travel to a different city, an alternate persona takes over my core.  When we chose to shoot these looks in Paris, I naturally morphed  into my classic yet dreamy Parisian side.  It’s inevitable.  More or less(…)

Note to Self

Note to Self

It’s one thing to have the honor of being recognized by Street Style photographers and magazines when heading back and forth between shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris – but it is another sense of accomplishment when a magazine, from China nonetheless, asks to feature you among their top stylers at the moment.(…)

Art Basel 2013 Photo Diary

Art Basel 2013 Photo Diary

Art Basel Miami always has a way of stimulating every sense in my body.  From the unimaginable art pieces to the beautiful bronzing weather and ALL the parties that just don’t stop, here is my photo diary from last week’s art affair. Bisous NYS Day 1:  Miami Palm Trees, a day at Art Basel and Design(…)

Karma Chameleon

Karma Chameleon

The proof is in the picture… I mean pudding –  I belong in Paris! At least that is what I like to tell myself especially when my garb reflects the columns of Le Palais Royal.  It’s a sign (and we all know how much I love signs) or perhaps it’s just Balmain blending into the(…)

Au Revoir 2012 – Bienvenue 2013

Au Revoir 2012 – Bienvenue 2013

First let me start by saying – HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE! I can’t believe how quickly 2012 flew by.  I feel so blessed and fortunate  for the lessons learned and new experiences received.   2012 was one of the most formative years of my life and I only hope I can multiple the inspiration and(…)

Fancy Pants for Olivia Palermo

Fancy Pants for Olivia Palermo

Tis’ the season to be Fancy!  It seems the word “fancy” is always rolling off our tongues when the holidays roll around.  You may fancy a little bit of this or a little bit of that, but what you should really be fancying is a pair of “fancy pants.” Now we aren’t just talking about(…)

Painting Milano Red

Painting Milano Red

Well I might have not painted Milan ‘red’ but I sure did make my way around town in this number going from show to show. I started the day in my leopard pony hair Louboutins, but later switched into my Alexander McQueen horn heels before the Prada show because my feet were in so. much.(…)

Balmain, Balmain Oh Balmain – The Fall 2012 Collection and Afterparty

Balmain, Balmain Oh Balmain – The Fall 2012 Collection and Afterparty

It’s like a dream…walking into a room full of Balmain’s hand embroidered pieces sparkling just as brightly as diamonds in a jewelry store – perhaps even more. Let’s all admit it – We LOVE Balmain.  The structured shoulders, the tailored blazers and those heavy encrusted dresses and gowns that add that touch of glamour… heaven.(…)

That’s Amore – Milano Looks of the Day

That’s Amore – Milano Looks of the Day

During Milano Fashion Week, my partner in crime, Erica Pelosini, and I took a break from the shows to wander around Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and do a little photo shoot of our looks from the day. The setting is breath-taking with the sky high glass arcade ceilings and colorful mosaic floors.  But make sure you(…)
