New York Fashion Week {First Day}

my first stop at Fashion Week was the Rebecca Minkoff show. i waited patiently in a sea of fashionista bloggers to take my seat for the upcoming show. as we swarmed the seating area i took a moment to capture my sweaty face (thank you 85 degrees and 80% humidity) as a moment i never want to forget, my first fashion show:

seated across the aisle were a couple faces you may recognize:

Shenae Grimes, Ryan Lochte, Lauren Conrad
 and while the clothes were oh so gorgeous, it was hard not to avoid these baby blues:

i captured this shot by jumping out of my seat and pushing my way through googly-eyed girls to snap the pic. i figured this was my one chance to get close to get an up-close photo of Lochte, so why not make the most of it?

next stop was the Nicole Miller fashion show. i headed backstage to meet the lead artist for MAC--James Kaliardos--and hear his take on the looks created:

a smoky eye was created with a hint of rock & roll and a touch of nature. in fact, including elements of nature was a theme throughout the looks as well as the collection. this nail design was created by CND nails titled Galaxy Glam Mani. the models had their nails painted black followed by a press-on nail with each galaxy design hand-painted. i got the exclusive how-to and will be sharing the details once i return to the Mile High City.

it is now 1:30 am and i have a 7:15 call time, which means this glamour gal needs some shut eye. more pics and tips tomorrow!
