South Korean born designer, Son Jung Wan took NYFW week by storm with elegant hues of grey, taupe, and blue. Her signatures furs draped 30s style elegant gowns which deem perfect for a starlet to wear. Son Jung Wan, the talented and graduate of Sookmyyung University in Industrial Craft , also won the Golden Needle Award and Designer of the year in 20005 in Seoul. Her apparent love of the arts was apparent in her palette for fall. Her designs are timeless, pretty, and embellished with the finest and most sumptuous fabrics. Fall 2014 reflected this elegance even in her menswear which was flanked with fur and color.
Once upon a time there was a designer who made the hottest surfer inspired dresses in neoprene. The company is Clover Canyon and the line is loved by celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and even me. My favorite dress is the full length neoprene. And I love the beach scenes.

NYFW has started and everyone is already exhausted. Why? The parties are almost more exciting than the shows. Well not really, but its been a blast seeing everyone after such a long summer. So while the kids are back to school, we adults are ready to have a blast and see wants hot for the new season.
Son Jung Wan was a breath of fresh air with very feminine lines for the season, and a pop of yellow. I go to wear an amazing yellow dress that looked fairy like. I added my own touch with an Azzedine Alaia belt to give it a hard and soft edge.
Rebecca Taylor got $4 and the collection looks like it with mens and womens wear mixed, amazing metal and leather booties, and style that is sophisticated and affordable.It was fun seeing Nigel Barker there and the cast from HBO “Girls”.
The Dior party at SAKS was filled with Jessica veil and fashionistas and bloggers. I went with a white cut out Azzedine Alaia to the floor gown and belted it to give it a was it and more chic appeal.
The MAC party inspired by Antonio at Odeon was spirited and filled with Sophia Coppola and Kelly Osborne among the fashion and beauty elite.
Mathieu Mirano was an incredible presentation filled with red and skins. His designs are making fashionistas crazy and everyone in the tents were asking me what I was wearing.
Congrats to Mathieu. Check out his video.
More to come as always.
Stacy Bendet has done it again. The Spring 2014 was sophisticated, quirky, and expensive. My daughter, who was my sidekick, loved a lot of the looks especially the shorts looks and the butterfly handbag. Its time for Spring even thought its fall with patterns, crisp white, and tons of metallic peeking through. Abs are the new breasts and the cut outs are everywhere.
So, get to the gym.
My name is Kelly Killoren Bensimon. My job is to clue you into the behind the scenes of fashion week Spring 2014. I can’t wait to introduce you to all of my friends who make fashion week exciting and my friends who make fashion one if the biggest industries.
Here we go…..
The first day of fashion week is hard in the Fall, for its 80 degrees outside and we are looking at Sping 2014 clothes. This season for my first few days, I decided to go with all red Azzedine Alaia and yellow Manolo Blahnik satin shoes. I love bold colors, but I love the simplicity of all red. To meet my friend Giuliana Rancic, I decide to channel my peasant look with Balenciaga dress, Chanel quoted bag, and Manolo Blahnik fringe booties. And for the Styled to Rock party, Iw as inspired by Caddy Shack and dressed Old Guard chic. My Olcay Gulsen top and white Gucci pants paired with silver Jimmy Choo set the stage for a chic look juxtaposed to the rocker inspired party.
Get ready its all coming at you.
My ULTA ultras for the Jill Stuart 2013 spring fashion show. Check out this gorgeous makeup palette from ULTA. I used the smokey blue eye color, benefit mascara, and the bare minerals lip color for a soft lip.
The Jill Stuart show showed neutrals and straight hair. Maybe I should channel that for the show tomorrow. Thoughts?
