Last year, I fell in love with Jill Stuart's super-girly collection of flowy dresses, menswear fedoras and flower headbands. This year? Well, I was pretty much sitting on the couch at home! But...my lovely F/W correspondent Dani gladly accepted the invite and covered for me. Love ya for it, D!
Who/What/Why: Jill Stuart Spring 2010
Location: New York Public Library
Celebs spotted: Nikki Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Rachel Bilson, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rowland, TONS of Housewives of the reality show kind (NY, NJ, and ATL alike).
The Collection: Tough Girl Chic obviously geared towards the "It-Girl" collective, complete with hardware detail, mesh fabric and itty-bitty hemlines. Metallics, studs, lace, and cobalt! (love her for this)
The Takeaway: Jill, you had me at cobalt blue. Being the cobalt freak that I am, I DIED for these looks. Although a ton of it did scream streetwalker chic to me [I guess that's why the housewives were there, lol].
Hair: Bob Racine/Phyto [Intentionally messy, loose pull backs, sort of a half up/half down look with a casual roll twist and loose fluttering pieces].
Makeup: Frank B./Makeup Forever [Nude, natural face, with brows as the focal point]
