Fashion Week: Seen & Heard

we put a few guests at our spring presentation in the hot seat…
NINA GARCIA, Marie Claire fashion director
Thoughts on the presentation?
I love it. It’s such a spirited collection—full of color, full of happiness.
First Fashion Week memory?
My first show was Calvin Klein, and I used a fake ticket from another editor. That’s my first memory—getting in with an adulterated ticket.

PHILIP CRANGI, jewelry designer, Giles & Brother/Philip Crangi
Thoughts on the presentation?
Gorgeous palette—very fresh. I’m loving the yellow in both the men’s and women’s collections. It’s the perfect color for my mood right now.

RICHARD HAINES, fashion illustrator
First Fashion Week memory?
Waiting for my coffee this morning. I don’t remember anything before that.
Side note: Check out Haines’s gorgeous illustrations of fashion week on his blog.

ANDY SPADE, co-founder, Partners & Spade
Favorite men’s looks?
I love the royal blue jacket. And the forest green jacket. That whole look—over the blazer with the jeans—that’s my favorite look. The chambray jacket is great too.
Favorite shoe?
The wing tips in the whiskey color (on the guy with the white jacket).

ERIC GOLDSTEIN, co-founder, The Jean Shop
Is there enough denim here for you?
There can never be enough denim.

ANONYMOUS NYPD COP
Thoughts on the presentation?
I’m just here for the air-conditioning.

Models backstage at our fall ’11 press presentation enjoyed a little quiet time before the show by catching up on their favorite reads

A few titles we spotted: Animal Farm by George Orwell, Trump: The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump and Tony Schwartz, Vogue,
The New York Times “Sunday Styles”, Vanity Fair and US Weekly.

We snapped a few of our favorite accessories from our fall ’11 press presentation—from polished purses in unexpected patterns to bold bracelets and bangles in the season’s best hues. If only Bonnie could have nabbed one of these…

Our resident beauty and style gurus reveal how to get the look from our J.Crew fall ’11 press presentation.

“We wanted the girls to look fresh, clean and dewy…The skin was left almost bare with just a slick of polish on the cheekbones, the bow of the lip and the eyelids. For a soft flush of color; the lips were matted out with foundation first and then with a pop of pink or melon just at the center parting of the lips. The brow’s were filled in and brushed up for a totally natural look with the eyelids left almost totally clean…a warm shadow for definition and just a curl of the eyelashes with one coat of mascara.”

Give hair a fluffy dry texture with a slight bump at the crown, then gather hair into a ponytail keeping hair loose over ears for a pretty profile. The finishing touch on each girl’s ponytail was a J.Crew tortoise barrette!

Face: Laura Mercier Primer & MAC Strobe Cream.
Cheeks: Stila Convertible Color in Gerbera & Petunia for cheeks.
Eyes: Laura Mercier Rose Gold Metallic Creme and a slick of Vaseline with Mabelline Great Lash Mascara. 
Lips: MAC Lip Erase, MAC PRO OJ & Genuine Orange lip pencil or Make-up Forever 18C lip pencil.
