Getting ready for nyfw with michael kors

In just a couple of weeks we somehow managed to travel from L.A to Paris, to Thailand and finally land in New York for fashion week. For the first time, it became a short NYFW stop as we skipped some of the last shows in order to leave (again) to Milan, where I was just a few days ago, for a new project. Life has been honestly all about airports, passport in hands, luggages, packing/unpacking and trying to coordinate meetings with everyone we want to see. Conversations go like “Will I see you in London? Are you coming to Paris?” as we are all on a crazy gypsy life schedule. But it seems like we don’t mind it, it’s part of the game. 

NYFW was as always a tremendously exciting experience and we got to do a LOT even though we had to leave early. Some amazing shows, shoots and it was so fun to see everyone again and to spend time with some of our closest friends in this amazing fashion week ambiance. One of my favorite events was for the Michael Kors Gold Fragrance collection launch as all of our pals were there for the occasion, cocktails, a Photo Booth and the retro sound of Duran Duran playing to our ears. I’ve had the enormous pleasure to work with Michael Kors for a while now and as always, they manage to throw the best parties where everyone just seems to have the best time ever.

So instead of sharing with you the red carpet pictures like we all usually do and like you can so easily see online, I wanted to share with you some tips and tricks on how to get ready for an event of such sort. First of all know this, flash pictures will always attenuate your make-up. With that in mind don’t hesitate to go a little stronger on the contouring and shading as it will appear much softer on the shots. However, you still don’t want the cake face effect in person, so it’s all about finding that perfect balance. Second of all, make sure to always have with you a bit of mat powder to avoid shine. A bit of nude lip liner goes a long way, trust me. Try it! Try your poses in front of the mirror, even if it sounds (and looks) so dumb it will be of a tremendous help when you’ll have to pose.

Last but not least, don’t forget to wear something that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable for the whole night and a touch of your favorite perfume will make you even more unforgettable. For the occasion I chose the Rose Radiant perfume from the Gold collection by Michael Kors as it was perfectly in the theme. So obsessed with this super feminine scent that has such delicious floral notes. I always apply my perfume right before running out, on my wrists, hair and on certain parts of my clothes. Sometimes, I’ll even create a mini sample of it to bring with me throughout the day. On the other hand, I also decided to match up a look to some rose gold statement pieces. Et voilà!! Can’t wait to hear what you guys think of these few images shot by Cibelle. Make sure to follow my story on Snapchat for all of our adventures (they might be long, yes, but we make sure to hide some fun little winks here and there!). And… yes we tend to go wild ;)
