Maybe you don't remember the NBC show 'Lipstick Jungle'....but you should remember the fashion. Each character told a story through the way they dressed...Nico was the power executive with a flair for fashion i.e. a simple shift dress with oversized jewelry and a YSL Muse 2 bag, then there was Wendy the movie producer who paired flowy blouses with sharp pencil skirts, and then there was Victory a fashion designer who rocked feminine dresses with of the moment fashion pieces like the coveted Valentino flower bag.
Lipstick Jungle maybe gone from the weekly TV lineup, but I think we can all take a note from the costumes and tell a story through our clothes.

Not everyone is born with style....luckily Ally Hilfiger was. You may know her from the 2003 Mtv show 'Rich Girls', she may have faded from the small screen but not from the fashion scene.
Take notes and let Ally show you how its done...a classic black/white outfit can be instantly updated with a studded belt. A sequin headband can be chic when paired with black. Tired of contacts? Try a pair of oversized black frames to add instant cool. Layer necklaces to liven up your look.

If you don't know about FNO is your probably living under a rock....Stores in most major cities stayed open late, served drinks, and dedicated the night to fashion.
Sometimes living in New York really has it's perks, FNO was one of them. A few glasses of wine mixed with the party happening in the streets, I was ready to max out my credit card. Here's how my night went....
-Barneys: Daphne Guiness was debuting her fragrance and looking incredibly chic. Simon Doonan was signing his book, and was able to get a picture with him.
-Calvin Klien: Francisco Costa, Cynthia Nixon, Bryan Adams, Sara Paxton, and Anthony Williams from Project Runway. I'm definitely not a name dropper, but this was probably the best party by far...totally relaxed and just fun
-Michael Kors: A total clusterf*ck, but when you love fashion you tend to start pushing people out of the way....Thank God for my no bullsh*t attitude I was able to meet Michael himself and snap a pic with him!
-Tod's: Donatella Arpaia was signing her book, by the time we arrived the party had died down
-Chanel: Lame....granted it was later in the night, but nothing was happening although there was some roped off thing in the back I guess for VIP....I love Chanel, but for FNO they can suck it.
What did you do to celebrate FNO? And by the way theres more pics to come!
My favorite time of year....seriously is there anything better than throwing on your favorite oversized vintage Dior sweater and heading down to Lincoln Center to see the chaos that is Fashion Week?.............Okay maybe that's just me, regardless if you happen to be in New York mid-September I strongly suggest you follow suit. Even if your not into fashion (which you probably are if your reading this) Lincoln Center, the new home to the runways, is the place to be.
Hopefully unlike me, you remember to charge your camera. I was able to snap a few shots of some fashion girls including The Hills Whitney Port, before my camera went completely dead so check it out!...A blog without pictures is just boring
Check out the pictures from the June/July issue of Blackbook to see my fashion assistant expertise put to good use! More images from my work on this issue to come, and you can see more at http://www.myfdb.com/covers/72680-blackbook-cover-june-july-2010
