Thom Browne F-W 2013-098

Over the past eight seasons, I’ve photographed many exciting, beautiful, and inspiring fashion shows– over 200 of them. Thom Browne’s Fall 2013 show is my favorite of them all. Every detail, from the backstage beauty to spooky, wintery runway show was perfect, making the viewer feel as if they were transported to a couture show in Paris, rather than a loft space in New York’s Chelsea.

Mac Cosmetics’ Sil Bruinsma created a dazzling look inspired by Marie Antoinette, and The Queen of Hearts, focusing on whited out faces and bright red cheeks and lips.

Marie Antoinette New Year’s Party

Marie Antoinette (14)
Me & Lindsay

Last night two dozen of my favorite people came over to ring in the new year in our fanciest 18 century inspired fashions, powdered hair and all. We ate macarons and other amazing desserts, drank champagne, danced to the best music of the last 10 years, watched “Marie Antoinette”, and lit off sparklers.

My lace dress and headdress were from Topshop, the necklace from Target, and I wore black baby doll triple buckle shoes from Steve Madden to complete the look. I started the night with white tights, but they looked too ridiculous to keep on.

We got most of our food from Trader Joe’s. They had some very beautiful and delicious desserts for not that much money. The whole event was pulled off for just a little over $100. This was hands down the best party I’ve thrown in years! It was pretty damn awesome, and I’m so happy as many people dressed up as they did.

Hope all of you had an amazing new year’s as well!
