Though it doesn't look quite like this, this is the set for my next video for Macy's INC. It's many, many pieces of blue plexi in a space to create light and dimension. Lilli, who works for me, took this picture and we were both like, This looks awesome. Really, really cool. But in reality, it will look much more abstract.
This is what I look like after three hours of hair and make-up! All of the products are Tom Ford Beauty and they are just amazing. The lipstick is called Cherry Lust. I was all excited about the makeup and felt super pretty for my INC party at The Standard. In terms of my hair, I have a really good color and get touch-ups every six weeks. It takes a long time when I'm there, but I truly enjoy my time at the salon. They always have French Vogue before it comes out here and it’s a nice little break in my work week.
While it didn't really work for Natalie or Michelle's SAG Awards look, this Fred Leighton necklace is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. I just had to snap a picture.
This pretty shot was taken at the Jason Wu for Target party. The whole theme was Paris and there was a macaroon shop set up inside the party!
Michelle Williams' SAG accessories: the clutch is Lanvin, the shoes are Roger Vivier and the jewelry is Fred Leighton. The red Valentino dress she wore was made specifically for her and while the look could have gone sweeter, I wanted it to feel modern and cool. I had a bunch of Lanvin bags before the Golden Globes and I thought it would look awesome to keep it all in the same color family. It somehow made the dress less fancy and gave the overall look a little more of a 'style.' I loved how it turned out, but I never read the weekly magazines until after awards season. I just let them pile up.
This was on top of a gift I received from Giambattista Valli as a thank you for dressing Natalie in his design for the SAG Awards. Inside the box was some fragrance and beauty products from Aedes de Venustas in the West Village. They carry exceptionally fine and rare products and the packaging is simply divine.
