NEW YORK F/W2015

Posted on Updated on

figtny_nwfw_grid-800x533The past few weeks seem like a bit of a blur…NYFW just wrapped up and I’m happy to report I survived !

NYFW Fall/Winter 2015 happened to fall right in the middle of Valentine’s Day, a US holiday long-weekend, the NBA All-Stars hosted in New York and Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary Special also being hosted in New York…literally a “Perfect Storm” …so with all that going on you can only imagine how hard it was to get a taxi and how much time I ended up spending in Ubers!! And I should also mention the below freezing weather, not the ideal conditions to be wearing anything other than a giant parka but of course thats not what NYFW is all about ; )

I also did a Instagram Takeover for Hudson Hotel during Fashion Week, it was an ideal spot to set up a home-base in between shows & events. Several popular bloggers also called The Hudson home during fashion week, check out Hudson Hotel Instagram to see who!!

Ended up seeing some amazing shows, with amazing clothes, among my favorite were Creatures of the Wind, Rodebjer, Reem Acra & Prabal Gurung…

See a few of my pics below from out & about during NYFW, the runways/showrooms & backstage details of my past few weeks !

FEBRUARY LOOKBOOK IN ROME

Posted on Updated on

Free-People-February-2015-8

For Free People’s February campaign, Estonian model Karmen Pedaru takes us on a ride through the streets of Italy’s capital city and the place she calls home, Rome.

The images showcase Karmen in true Free People fashion as she strikes a pose opposite favorite landmarks in spring ready looks. Sticking to a color palette of blues and neutrals, the styling features casual and comfortable looks alongside elegant festive numbers. Loose-fitting dresses in varied lengths take the spotlight, while denim paired back with flowy tunics, printed tops, and knitted pullovers, as well as jackets and ponchos, make an appearance alongside.

Casual accessories complete the seasonal looks, with oversized hobo bags, leather belts, metal jewelry, and transitional footwear perfect for exploring new cities.

I kind of love how bored she looks in all the shots…

#SELFIE

Posted on

If “self-photographic portrait” is an old-fashioned term, “selfie” has become the word of the moment and the selfie-mania is amazingly overflowing.

Young and old, Hollywood stars and mere mortals, everybody is tempted by selfies, sharing them with friends and relatives.

How can we forget about the selfie taken during the 86th edition of the Academy Awards by Ellen DeGeneres? It was a group selfie with the most famous Hollywood celebrities: Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong’o and Peter Nyong’o. Funny faces and smiles that were retwitted two million times in less than two hours: an authentic Selfie Awards!

Coming back in the world of normal people, the situation doesn’t even change: every day millions of selfies are posted, capturing several different poses with different backgrounds that give life to real subcategories.

This is the reason why the “Bathroom Selfie” and the “Bed Selfie”, not to mention the “Duckface Selfie” that seems to be the most famous one, are astonishingly popular.

Who was the first person to start this new trend taking the first selfie?

The first selfie of the history dates back to 1914, when the Russian grand duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna took a photo in front of a mirror. Then, she sent it to a friend of her along with a letter where the following words were written: “Taking this picture was so complicated, because my hands were trembling”. Not only was the first selfie to be taken, but also the first attempt of social sharing of what I like to call a “Vintage Selfie”.
