Girl on Film
I was lucky enough to be asked to talk about what makes super-stylist Oribe and his eponymous haircare line a beauty editor's dream for a brand awareness film the Oribe Hair Care company is making. If you aren't familiar with Oribe's background, let's put it this way: He had a major hand in putting the "super" on "supermodels" Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford.

Elvis' Hair Up for Grabs
A clump of hair, not much unlike what most of us New Yorkers find stuck in our sink drains (how does this happen?), is finding its way onto the auction block. This hair isn't your typical run-of-the-mill scraps swept up at the end of a long day of cutting; this is The King's hair. Yup, that King.

Wet-A-Porter Strands at Yigal Azrouël
If I had the disposable dough, I'd probably own every piece Yigal Azrouël makes. (In fact, be on the lookout for sister publication Nailpro's upcoming November 2009 cover in which we dress the model in a piece from his fall collection! Can you say "zippers" and "crinkled matte navy"?) His pieces are edgy, youthful, chic, daring, artfully done, etc., etc.

Is That a Clipper Design I Spy?
Yes, the tulle is super-cool at the Betsey Johnson show (hair lead Peter Gray for Redken came up with the brazen styles), but what is that I spy on that Grace Jones-look-a-like? It appears to be a fiercer than fierce clipper design artfully etched into her buzzed style.

CND's Jan Arnold Paints Fashion Week
Nail lacquer company CND is all over Fashion Week; the team always creates the most innovative nail tips for shows. With the whole "Flip Video" rage going on (everybody and their mother has one backstage), I wasn't surprised to see CND co-founder Jan Arnold wielding her very own Flip. And I'm glad she did.

Kim Kardashian's Retro Style Backstage at Jill Stuart
Back to her brunette roots, Kim Kardashian looked smashing backstage at Jill Stuart's show. Her Keeping Up With The Kardashians crew was trailing her every move, and she seemed to be interviewing all of the beauty talent backstage, including Bob Recine, who was exclusively using Phyto products.

Edward Tricomi Cops a Cabana Feel At Rosa Chá
With the rain literally soaking every New Yorker to the bone during Fashion Week, the idea of warm-weather gear is a welcome respite. I took a short mental escape to a tropical locale in my brain by way of Brazilian bombshell swim-and-beachwear line Rosa Chá.
